Six Steps to a New Outdoor Area

How To / January 2,2014

Are you thinking of redecorating the outdoor areas of your home while it's good weather? Get a stylish outdoor living space with these top tips.

  1. Decking can boost the appearance of an outdoor area and provide additional comfort. If you already have a decked area, simply sprucing it up with a new varnish can restore its good looks and make everything else look more new.
  2. Use lights to subtly or dramatically alter the atmosphere. Try backlighting plants with solar lighting to add points of interest while still minimising energy use.
  3. Enhance your garden's privacy with a pergola or screen; these can also provide handy shade. A canopy offers a temporary solution should you want the option to take it down at any time.
  4. Blur the lines between outdoors and indoors to create a flexible space for entertaining. A barbecue gives you the option to cook outside the kitchen. Sofas and sun loungers outside provide additional comfort for family and guests.
  5. Consider adding more colour to your pool area. Soft furnishings create a welcoming space and accessories such as beach balls will add to the fun.
  6. Think about your heating needs to ensure your outdoor space is comfortable enough to use throughout the year - a patio heater or fire pit will add warmth and a focal point so that you can make the most out of your outdoor areas even during winter.
