It doesn’t matter how big or small your garden is, there is furniture to fit. Nowadays, with as much choice as indoor furnishings and accessories there really is no good reason not to take advantage of your outdoor home from home.
Sit Back And Relax.
You've worked hard on your garden, weeding, planting and pruning. Now why not sit back, relax and enjoy the view. By simply furnishing your garden you can create a whole new space for your home, one you can inhabit and use just like your living room! Bringing furniture into the garden you are essentially extending your home, bringing your life outside into the sunshine and back to nature. You need to consider what you will be using your garden for when choosing the type of furniture. Do you see yourself sipping wine and dining with friends on the patio? Or reading a book on the lawn with a cold glass of lemonade?
What tone do you want to set for your garden?
You can define space using different types of seating and the choice of style for your furniture can create a different ambience. For example, a rustic wooden bench will fit seamlessly into an English country garden riddled with roses. A set of deckchairs that can easily be stored in the garden shed can make the most of a small space and can be brought out for sunny days or entertaining guests. Cushions that are upholstered in waterproof fabric provide a comfortable and real homely feeling to your back garden. Black cast iron furniture can be moved from the garden to a kitchen when it's just too cold to sit outside. Redwood furniture is a popular choice and are the most chosen type in the world. Moulded PVC furniture seamlessly blends into its surroundings, lending the illusion of space.
Enjoy Your Garden
Whichever style you choose, just remember why you created your garden. It's not just there for the birds and the bees to enjoy, its part of your home and you would not leave a room in your house bare would you? Furniture in your garden adds value to your property so it's not just beneficial to you, it'll raise the value for the whole neighbourhood!
Dont Forget Your Front Garden
Your front garden is just as important as the back. Even though you might not furnish it with a hammock or dining set (for obvious reasons) you can still use pots and planting to create a welcoming entrance to your home at the end of a long day. The basic principal of your garden is to extend your home beyond the thresholds of walls and doors. Make the most of your space, there is so much garden furniture on the market you can stamp your personality on mother nature.
