Create A Comfortable Outdoor Living Area With Luxury Garden Furniture
Make the most of the summer and invest in some quality garden furniture. Invite family and friends over for a BBQ and relax in your outdoor living space.
As the warmer weather arrives, us Brits get excited about the summer months and the opportunity to come out of hibernation to appreciate our gardens. No matter how small your outside area is, so long as there is room for a small patio table, then you’ll benefit from the fresh air, interaction with nature and hopefully the chance to soak up some rays on those hotter days. For homeowners with a larger garden, you can really go to town and create a whole extra living space, equivalent to an outdoor lounge in which to relax amongst family and even entertain visitors on long Sunday afternoons over a BBQ and some drinks.
Maintaining Your Garden Sets
Some of us get to this time of year and realise that our garden furniture is in tatters. It’s certainly true that you need to take care of your outdoor tables and chairs to help protect them from the elements. If you’ve left your garden dining set outside over the winter months, then it has probably been subjected to a fair bit of wear and tear. So, it might be time to update the look of your garden with some quality furniture so that you can get the most out of the fine weather this summer.
Historically, garden sets of tables and chairs have garnered a bad reputation for being uncomfortable. It’s hard to appreciate the great outdoors when sat upon hard, wobbly chairs. However, there’s never been a better time to invest in a new set of furniture. Luxury garden sofa sets are all the rage and allow you to kick back with a newspaper or cocktail in hand and enjoy the sunshine beaming down on you. Sofas are available in a variety of materials, but rattan is extremely popular due to its durability and the lack of maintenance required. Grab some comfortable seat pads or outdoor beanbags and you’ve created a really relaxing and usable living space in your back garden.
Quality garden furniture can really be a talking point amongst visitors to your home. You might want to purchase a chic, timeless set of metal garden furniture that never seems to go out of fashion in the UK. However, a really interesting choice of design is a Metal Ice and Fire Set which allows you to use the centre of the table as either an ice-bucket for your chilled summer refreshments, or a space to light a BBQ from. Add attractive fabrics and padded seat cushions to your furniture that will add comfort and can blend in with the theme you’ve chosen for your garden – whether that be an English cottage garden, Mediterranean oasis, or Moroccan opulence.
Invest in some extra outdoor accessories to help appreciate your garden for longer periods of time during the day and evening. A sturdy parasol will allow you to cover up and keep cool when the rays are at their strongest. In the evening, when the temperature drops, a chimenea will add that authentic, rustic quality to your outdoor space, so that you can enjoy an evening meal and long conversation beneath the stars.
There will be some fantastic sales on in the run-up to Easter and the May bank holidays. But don’t leave it too late, invest in some luxury garden furniture asap, so that you can make the most of the warmer season this year.
