Choose the perfect sofa for your cosy corner

Planning a cosy garden space that you’ll utilise throughout spring and summer means choosing the perfect spot for your corner sofa or garden lounge furniture, you’ll want to pick a place that gets the warmth from the sun until it goes down and ensures it is sheltered from the elements. Take note of where the sun sets in the evening so you can make the most of the sunsets at dusk. You may also wish to put up screens between your pergola to give protection from a gust of wind and the enclosed area will feel cosy and more intimate.

Gather around a fire pit

Nothing says cosy more than gathering around an atmospheric fire. Adding a fire pit to your outdoor space not only provides warmth and light, but it serves as a statement focal point to gather around for socialising and roasting marshmallows. Choose a fire pit design that pairs with the design of your garden to complete the look, whether it’s a sleek, modern silhouette or something more rustic for country abodes.

Introduce outdoor lighting

Surrounding yourself with soft outdoor lighting instantly elevates the ambience of a garden oasis. From solar-powered string lights to lanterns and interesting wall lights, there are so many options which can be adapted to suit your space that make the perfect addition for evening gatherings and dinners.
