Your garden is a space that welcomes tranquillity and relaxation. It’s also a space within your home that should be used throughout the year. However, that’s not always the case and so for many households, it’s often a garden space that’s not used for a lot of the time, other than during those warmer months.
A few changes to your space could make all the difference to help make it more inviting and somewhere where you can spend a lot of your time in. Here are some top tips for creating an inviting garden space for all-year-round use.
Invest in the right furniture
Firstly, it’s all about choosing the right furniture. Some furniture isn’t going to be appropriate for what you require in the space. Some may experience more rainfall or harsh weather conditions than others and so choosing furniture that’s not waterproof or rusts easily, is going to make your outdoor space less inviting.
By not having enough furniture in the space, you limit the amount of comfort that everyone has. Teak garden chairs have become extremely popular because of the material they’re made out of. They’re a durable option and can be left out in the garden all year round, come rain or shine.
Create an outdoor dining and lounge space
Talking of garden furniture, who says your outdoor space can’t be another place to lounge and dine in? Yes, it might not always be warm enough to eat outdoors but if you’re creating the right spaces in your garden, then it might be more tempting to dine or lounge outside more often.
Think about creating your own outdoor dining and lounge space. Firepits are great for those lounging spaces that need a bit more heat during the cooler months. It’s worth looking at dining tables and chairs to entertain your guests on any occasion and for any size party.
Incorporate the right lighting
Lighting is important and makes a big difference when it comes to setting the mood in the space. Warm lighting is a must for those who want to make the space cosier and more inviting to you and your guests. Consider fairy lights and solar floor lights as these are great ways to create ambient lighting without it feeling like you’re being blinded by security lights.
Provide shelter for those cooler months
To help embrace the winter nights out in your garden, make sure there’s shelter. That way, should it rain, you’ve got a space that you can curl up under with a throw and a book while watching the rain pour down around you.
Add in some water features to create a relaxed vibe
Finally, to create a spa-like vibe within your garden, consider adding some cool water features to your space. This a great way to provide that audible experience of water trickling down and creating a place that you or your family can escape to when needing a detox from the electronics.
Creating an inviting garden space is something that really helps bring out the best that your exterior area can offer. Use these tips to help transform this space for use all year round.
