The beautiful 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 area, the fixed elements (wall, planter, driveway, garden shed, etc.), the areas of sunshine or shade, while maintaining fluid circulation. As soon as this inventory is made, it will be necessary to focus on the choice of furniture and accessories to set the tone for each space.
2. Arrange a space with modular sofas to receive
Choosing the format of your outdoor sofa depends on the space you have but also on your habits of use. Small, large, meridian, 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 endure 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.

4. Multiply the cushions
In addition to the comfort they bring, they give a real look to your outdoor space! Whether printed, patterned or in solid colors, the cushions will highlight and bring a real decorative touch.
Multiply the sizes and formats, this will create volume effects. An important parameter for choosing your outdoor cushions: their material. They should preferably be waterproof, UV resistant to avoid discoloration, and easy to clean. It is in this sense that COZIP has created a complete range of outdoor cushions, in different formats, colors and patterns.
To put on your outdoor beds, on your sofas or on the floor, these are essential elements of your decoration... and your comfort!
5. Accessorize your spaces
Last touch to finalize your outdoor: accessories.
Let's start with the carpets: it's the "little extra" decoration. We advise you to place one or more to underline and accentuate the style, and to warm up the atmosphere. Do not forget to opt for a special outdoor mat for a long life.
In addition, do not hesitate to multiply the touches of light, preferably subdued, by favoring warm colors, we avoid the “hospital” bench! Garlands, lanterns, candles... the lights will allow you to make summer evenings last comfortably installed!
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, roses, 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 "cocoon".
Layout completed, it’s time for the final step; to profit from ! With your new cocooning space, you are so comfortable at home that you no longer want to go out.
Reading, lunch, aperitif, rest... alone, with family, with friends, you are ready to enjoy your outdoors!
