Good Homes – How to create a cosy garden seating area

 We’re all undoubtedly spending a lot more time in our gardens recently and with the weather set to get warmer, what better opportunity to give your garden a much needed makeover? As well as painting fences, cutting the grass and planting flowers, it’s important to create an area that’s perfect for relaxing and enjoying nature. In this article, Good Homes provides a roundup of the top tips and tricks on how to construct a cosy outdoor seating space, perfect for the upcoming summer months.

If, like us, the recent sunshine has left you daydreaming of spending summer evenings outside, relaxing with family and friends or cooking a BBQ, then you will undoubtedly need a space that is perfect for kicking back and entertaining guests. As well as explaining why lighting, such as fairy lights and LED candles, is essential to making your outside space feel warm and inviting, this article explains just how to achieve a laidback, yet stylish, atmosphere. By decorating with plants, a fire pit table and accessories like outdoor rugs, cushions and lanterns, your garden is sure to become a welcoming and tranquil place to relax.

Our favourite idea has to be investing in a hanging chair, we can’t think of a more ideal place to unwind at the end of a long day! So whether you’re a green fingered gardening expert, or if you would just like to make your outdoor space feel more cosy and inviting, then make sure you check out this article.
