Furniture Fit for the Interior
When shopping for garden furniture, it is easy to look solely for something that is waterproof and can easily be packed away. Whilst practicality is important, choosing stylish pieces of furniture for your garden will elevate its appearance and create a more put together exterior. Add a pop of colour to your outdoor space with the adorable yet spacious Habitat 3 Seater Garden Bench, available at Argos – a truly Instagram worthy piece of furniture for your garden!

Paint Brushes at the Ready
Sometimes, a lick of paint is all you need to transform your garden and make it a more contemporary and appealing space. Painting your shed, fences, or outdoor furniture a lighter shade will add a touch of softness to your garden and refresh any surfaces that are looking slightly worse-for-wear. What’s more, painting is a fun activity that the whole household can try their hand at, so is the perfect pastime for any weekends at home.

Finishing Touches on the Table
If you are hosting an outdoor afternoon tea or summer soiree, then one of the easiest ways to impress your household or guests is by ensuring your tableware and servingware is both stylish and cohesive. Rather than just opting for plastic plates and cups, invest in some statement outdoor tableware that will bring a touch of glamour to your garden. A chic dispenser with gold detailing, available at H&M, is the perfect item for any garden gatherings, especially if you’re planning to serve some cocktails!

Light Up Your Space
One of the simplest ways to transform your garden is by incorporating different types of lighting that will create an atmosphere and add warmth to the space. From fairy lights to neon signs, there are countless different types of lighting you can choose so you can make your garden a more enjoyable and inviting space that is still inkeeping with your personal style. If you’re not sure how to incorporate light into your garden, take inspiration from your favourite restaurants and beer gardens.

If there is one thing that every good garden needs, it’s plants! Plants are a sure way to boost your mood and create beautiful scenery within your garden. Switching up how you display the greenery can really change the overall appearance and style of your outdoor space, so it is worth investing in some unique and high-quality plant pots. For those who haven’t grown and nurtured plants before, opting for greens that are easy to look after, such as succulents and pansies, are a great pick.
