As we all know, British summers can be a little hit and miss, so it’s important to make the most of the warmer weather and sunshine as and when you can. From grand garden parties to intimate al fresco dining, it’s time to start thinking about preparing your garden for the summer ahead.
When it comes to your garden furniture, you not only need to think about the practicalities of withstanding the weather, but also the style too. With the right garden furniture you can make your social gatherings and outdoor relaxation a much more enjoyable experience for everyone involved.
A great place to start when looking at your garden furniture is with seating. Choosing the right chairs to suit your garden style and needs is key to maximising the enjoyment of your time outdoors. Create the perfect couples retreat in a quiet corner of your garden or an evening sun-trap with a twin-seat or duo set that comes with a built-in table, ideal for placing an ice cold beer. Alternatively, offer your guests comfortable chairs that can be upright or reclined for the ultimate relaxation on a warm, sunny day.
Whether you’re looking for sets of chairs to seat around a table for big barbecues or lounger-style chairs to lay back and tan in, there’s a whole host of styles, designs and colours to suit your requirements.
Another great way to add a whole new dimension for style and relaxation to your garden is with swing chairs. They’re great fun for adults and kids alike, but also offer a wonderfully relaxing place to soak up the atmosphere. They look fabulous in small or large gardens, either as a central focal point or tucked away in a quiet sun-spot. And with a built-in canopy, you can relax in the warm weather, while keeping out of the direct sun.
While entertaining your guests and creating areas for you to enjoy in your garden may be a priority, you should always give a little consideration for your pets, who will inevitably be spending more time outdoors too. With a choice of pet homes, you can treat your pooch to its very own house to keep cool in the shade; or give your rabbits, guinea pigs or chickens the ultimate place to run around in with purpose-built rabbits hutches, animal hutches and chicken coops.
Creating an Ambiance
Whatever your style, as with all home design and decoration, it’s about creating the right ambiance and your garden is no different. With the right garden furniture that’s durable and stylish you can create wonderful areas that are ideal for all kinds of socialising. With the warmer weather definitely on its way, it’s time to invite your friends and family round to enjoy the summer while the weather lasts.
