Create a luxurious outdoor space this Summer!

  • 05 July 2023

Summer is upon us and thankfully, the good weather is finally beginning to appear!

What better way to enjoy the weather than by bringing the comfort of the inside to your outdoor space?

‘Outdoor living’ has become a huge trend in recent years, recreating the homeliness and comfort of your living room in your back garden.

Sound good?! Take a look at some of our ideas for creating a luxurious outdoor space to unwind and make the most of the Summer this year.

1. Start with a garden sofa

A garden sofa is a perfect place to start when putting together your fifth room. They are a great way to make the most of the space in your garden, and there are many styles to choose from, no matter what size your outdoor space is.

Try something modern and on-trend like this platform corner lounge sofa from John Lewis.

Or try something classic like this rattan corner sofa set from Homebase.

2. For a smaller garden, try a lightweight furniture set

If your garden is on the smaller side, a lightweight furniture set could be a more appropriate choice to make the most of the space you do have. Try a steel constructed furniture set that’s elegant and modern but durable. The perfect place to enjoy a morning cuppa in peace!

3. No outdoor space is complete without a rug

Outdoor rugs are the perfect finishing touch to a space and there are many different kinds to choose from. Use the rug as an opportunity to inject some colour into the space or keep it neutral and organic.

4. Add a firepit

Make the most of those long, light summer nights by adding a firepit to your outdoor space! Create the perfect cosy summer night vibes by adding pillows and blankets to your furniture whilst you sit around the fire.

5. Add creativity to the space with bright accessories

Add vibrancy to the most neutral of spaces with splashes of colourful accessories. Add lanterns, blankets, cushions and tableware
