Spending time outdoors has become more prevalent now than ever. As we are actively encouraged to socialise outdoors, homeowners, or rather garden owners, are looking to spruce up their outdoor space. So here are some effective ways to create a comfortable and welcoming outdoor environment with an added touch of luxe.
Invest in an outdoor living area
Homeowners have long sought to bring the outside in, but now they seek to bring the indoors out. Outdoor living areas have enjoyed popularity for many years, whether it is an outdoor kitchen, sitting or dining area. Now is the perfect time to take it one step further. Investing in a luxury veranda is ideal for combining in and outdoor living. Verandas can be used to house sitting areas, dining areas, or to create true garden rooms. Whatever purpose fits your need. Verandas can be personalised in style, colour and design to suit you, whether you prefer the more traditional or contemporary look or have a small or large space to use. Verandas create a lavish outdoor living space that you can use year-round, year after year.
Upgrade your decking
There is no denying that the presence of neglected, unkept decking can affect the look and feel of your entire garden. Spending some time giving your decking a bit of TLC will make all the difference. Whether you are simply sprucing up already existing decking with a fresh coat of paint or investing in new decking, it is an upgrade that will transform your garden and give it a touch of luxury.
Lighting is something commonly overlooked. How often have you sat in someone’s garden late into the evening, in the dark? Adding some simple soft, warm mood lighting will give your garden that warming, comfortable feeling that you just cannot get from a floodlight or wall mounted security light. Whether you opt for solar lighting, fairy lights, or candlelight, investing in some outdoor lighting will make a pleasant evening outdoors last that bit longer.
A novel focus piece
Investing in an opulent piece for your garden will become a real social hub and luxurious addition to your outside space. Items such as hot tubs, outdoor pizza ovens and outside bars have boomed in the last 12 months and with good reason. They might seem like a novelty at the first but they are fast becoming a much loved, and used garden addition. These items are great for garden socialising or spending time with the family away from the Saturday night TV schedule.
Old, used and unloved garden furniture will ruin the most luxurious of garden spaces. Investing in some key garden furniture can transform the way you use your garden and make it pleasing on the eye. Whether it’s cool cubed rattan furniture giving you that chilled Ibiza vibe or stunning sun loungers furnishing with flair will help create that polished look.
The finishing touches
Don’t forget those little details that easily add to a luxurious experience in your garden. Outdoor rugs, throws and soft furnishings all have a place in your garden and with the right colour palette and styling, you can create a space to be proud of. other great option could be to include an outdoor heater or fire pit. It will help keep guests warm and comfortable whilst enjoying their time in your garden.
