It’s lovely making the best of the warm summer days, relaxing in the conservatory, the doors wide open, and the cool summer breeze flowing through and into the rest of the house. But for those who like to entertain friends and family, or maybe just yourself, there’s so much you can do to your outdoor spaces.
A pair of beautiful and comfortable outdoor rattan sofas will create the perfect cosy entertainment space in your garden. They’re weatherproof and come with removable shower-proof cushions. Pair them with a low coffee table for your caffe latte or beer.
Alternatively, you could build more permanent seating in the garden by upcycling boxes or pallets. Add cushions, throws, and rugs to make the seating feel luxurious.
While we are in the middle of summer, the nights are slowly drawing in, and the temperature can drop significantly once the sun goes down. A fire pit is an attractive way to enjoy living flames in your garden or backyard, as are chimeneas, and a gas patio heater is a practical alternative. Keeping everyone warm will draw people in, and help create a wonderful atmosphere.
A bit of shelter is also a good idea, knowing the proclivity for sudden summer showers. If you don’t have a conservatory to take shelter in, then an awning or gazebo can help you enjoy your al fresco dining and drinking space even when the sun isn’t blazing down.
A bar is essential for more sociable people, whether it’s well-equipped drinks trolley in the conservatory, or one incorporated into an outdoor kitchen, or you have converted the garden shed into a pub!
