The sunny days are coming... and your exterior will become the heart of your “home”! It is therefore important to make it as pleasant as possible and to create spaces of softness and well-being for a cocoon of calm and disconnection. Whether for a terrace, a balcony, a garden, a poolside… discover 6 COZIP ideas to create a cocooning space outdoors.


1. Define and delimit spaces

To best arrange outdoor spaces and exploit their potential, it is important to define them: a sofa area for entertaining? A table for lunch? Outdoor beds for moments of rest?

To do this, you must take into account the available surface area, fixed elements (wall, planter, path, garden shed, etc.), areas of sunshine or shade, while maintaining smooth circulation. Once this inventory has been completed, you will need to focus on the choice of furniture and accessories to set the tone for each space.



2. Create a space with modular sofas for entertaining


Choose the size of your outdoor sofa depends on the space you have but also on your usage habits. Small, large, chaise longue, coffee table…


We advise you to favor a modular sofa, without forgetting the outdoor poufs : they will allow you, without taking up too much space, to increase the number of seats. Don't neglect the materials either: your sofa must be solid and durable and ready to withstand bad weather, heat or UV rays!


At COZIP we have designed a range of outdoor sofas made up of different adjustable modules, in order to create moving spaces according to the desires and the number of guests.

5. Accessorize your spaces

Last touch to finalize your outdoor space: accessories.

Let's start with the carpets : it’s the “little extra” decor. We advise you to place one or more to highlight and accentuate the style, and to warm up the atmosphere. Don't forget to opt for a special outdoor rug for a long lifespan.

In addition, do not hesitate to multiply the touches of light , preferably subdued, favoring warm colors, we avoid the “hospital” bench! Garlands, lanterns, candles... the lights will allow you to make summer evenings last comfortably seated!

And finally, give a touch of greenery to your outdoor spaces, especially for balconies and terraces, by adding potted plants . Take advice from a professional to make your selection: maintenance-free plants (such as oleander, aromatic herbs, lavender, etc.), plants exposed to the sun (such as lilies, geraniums, rose bushes, etc.).

6. Protect yourself from the sun

To bring shade to your spaces, opt for one or more parasols in sober or colorful tones, the choice is yours! You will need to determine its shape: round, square or rectangular and choose its protection index. Consider adding a slab for better wind resistance.

Another idea, the shade sail, a nice alternative to the parasol, bringing lightness and reinforcing the idea of ​​a “cocoon”.
