Summers never last long in Britain and when they do; you should make the most out of it. Imagine a sunny day, you and him with a glass of wine sitting outdoors. It kind of sets the scene for a perfect movie romance just about to begin.
Hang on; we’ve kind of digressed from the topic, which is making the best use of your garden, balcony this season. Don’t let your outdoor space lie alone, nurture it and make it as stylish as possible. Here are some tips to help you do just that.
Many of us live in cities, where the maximum we can afford is a balcony. Worry not! You can transform this space as per your aesthetics and give it a feel of a garden. Add a little bistro table and chairs to create the perfect summer dining area.
If you are really limited with room, try adding a few decorative accessories such LED lanterns, bunting or wind chimes to add a touch of personality and design flair to the space.
Just pit a simple bench combined with colourful cushions and see how this small little change will entirely transform the setting into a comfortable lounge to spend a sunny afternoon in.
If you are a keen gardener, opt for a style which comes with built in storage so you can limit clutter and keep all your Garden tools nice and tidy. Also, since the garden is small, DO NOT overdo it with accessories. Small is just wonderful by itself.
If you are lucky enough to have a large garden, take advantage of the space you have available by creating an outside space which you can relax in at all hours of the day. Wicker style furniture is fab as it allows you to fill the space without it feeling too heavy.
Adding unusual pieces like water features and garden ornaments will give your garden a very different look.
Just in case you have no garden at all, a small pull along hamper is perfect to help easily transport all your summer goodies to the nearest park.
