How to enhance your outdoor living this summer - Outershade

Create a comfortable seating area

Transform your patio into a cosy retreat by adding comfortable seating options

Transform your patio or garden into a cosy retreat by adding comfortable seating options. Think plush outdoor sofas, lounge chairs and a hammock or two. Incorporating weather-resistant fabrics and materials ensures your outdoor living space remains welcoming and stylish, season after season.

Consider the layout of your furniture to spark social interaction, perhaps arranging seating in a semi-circle or around a central table. Adding outdoor rugs can also be a good way to outline the space and add a touch of homeliness. The goal is to create an outdoor ‘room’ that blends the indoors and outdoors.

Light up the night

Extend your outdoor enjoyment into the evening with strategic lighting

Extend your outdoor enjoyment into the evening with strategic lighting. Solar-powered lights, string lights and LED candles can create a magical ambience without adding to your electricity bill. Lighting not only adds to the aesthetic appeal but also enhances safety by illuminating walkways and steps. 

Consider using different types of lighting for various purposes: task lighting for cooking areas, ambient lighting for date night and accent lighting to show off garden features or plants. 

Introduce a fire pit

A fire pit provides warmth and also creates a natural gathering spot

A fire pit not only provides warmth but also creates a natural gathering spot. You can add seating around the pit to encourage socialising and make it a focal point of your outdoor space. Whether you get a built-in or portable model, you’ll be roasting marshmallows under the stars in no time.

Add some greenery

Add some greenery to enhance your outdoor space

No outdoor living space is complete without the touch of greenery. From container gardens and flowering plants to herb gardens and lush shrubs, adding plant life can transform any outdoor area into a vibrant jungle. Plants will add a touch of beauty to your space and also improve air quality, allowing you to fully relax and unwind.

Get an awning

An awning is an impactful addition to your outdoor living space

One of the most impactful additions you can make to your outdoor living space is installing an awning. 

Awnings provide shade on demand, allowing you to enjoy the outdoors without the discomfort of direct sunlight. They can reduce indoor temperatures, protect furniture from fading and expand your living space. With a variety of designs and functionalities, including retractable options, awnings can complement any home’s exterior décor while providing protection from the sun.

If you’re interested in adding an awning to your outdoor living space this summer, look no further than Outershade. Our commitment to bespoke products, quality craftsmanship and exceptional customer service is what sets us apart.
