Home Happenings | Outdoor Area

Do you want to attract more people to your outdoor space? Or do you just need some inspiration for decorating? Either way, this blog post has got you covered. With so many beautiful and creative ideas, it won't be easy to choose which of the top 4 ways to liven up your home's outdoor space is right for you!

Spruce up the garden 

Think about what you love to see in your own garden, then take inspiration from that. Do you have a favourite flower? What about an interesting looking leaf or fruit? There are so many beautiful flowers and foliage out there; why not try something different next time you're shopping for home decor items at the weekend market! If it's fruits you like, perhaps planning on growing your own outdoor space would be fun. You could even make up your own little terrariums indoors if this sounds too daunting - remember, practice makes perfect!


Add a roof over your patio

If you are lucky enough to have a patio, why not make the most of it? If your garden has too much shade for plants and flowers to grow naturally, take this as an opportunity. Fancy having breakfast on your patio in the summertime but dread getting blasted by the sun? Consider investing in some awnings or a roof that will solve those problems right away!


Add garden lamps

If you love being outdoors in the evening, investing in a few garden lamps could be just what your outdoor space needs. A nice string of fairy lights is always beautiful and creates an inviting atmosphere at nighttime - perhaps consider adding these to your window sills as well! You can also buy solar-powered torches that look stunning around the borders of any patio or balcony. If this sounds like a lot of effort, why not try hanging up some pretty lanterns? They're small but pack a big visual punch and don't cost too much either!


Comfortable patio furniture

Patio chairs and benches could make all the difference to your outdoor space. Opt for simple, chic designs in bright colours or natural tones (or both!) that complement any existing decor, such as rugs and cushions. You can get really creative with pillows - if you like geometric patterns, why not try making some yourself? If this sounds too complicated, there are plenty of shops online where you can buy them ready-made!


Consider adding a few pouffes or settees to your outdoor space if you want a more luxurious feel. These more petite sofas create cosier corners when paired together in a seating arrangement outdoors. They're also great for small spaces because they take up much less room than traditional armchairs.


In conclusion, if you are looking for inspiration to liven up your outdoor space, look no further! Looking at pictures online can be fun, but it's always nice to see the real thing first-hand. So shop around and find an affordable furniture shop near you that stocks some of these items, whether a market stall or a high street store.
