Gorgeous Garden Spaces That Upgrade Your Home
29th November 2019
Once you’ve found your forever home, it’s tempting to start projects to make it feel unique to you. One popular project is planning garden spaces that will enhance your home. Garden spaces themselves can be anything from a garden room to an outdoor seating area. Whatever you choose, it needs be very ‘you’ to help make your mark on the house of your dreams.
Inspiration for Garden Spaces
Whether your garden is enormous or tiny, there will be a garden enhancement that suits your tastes as well as your outdoor area.
Below is a list of beautiful wants to upgrade your home by putting your own stamp on the garden.
A garden sitting room
Building an outdoor sitting room is a great way to enjoy your garden all year round. Not only is it insulated for those colder months, it’ll also be kitted out with heating and power too. A garden room makes a lovely place to relax with a glass of wine on those lazy summer evenings, while watching a sprawling pink sunset recede over the neighbourhood before a balmy night ensues.
It makes an equally cosy place to hole up and watch festive films while the garden is thick with snow. Whenever you choose to use it, your garden sitting room will be a handy addition to your property and made exclusively for you.
Garden spaces made for entertaining
If you love being the host, your garden needs to reflect that. Garden spaces designed for the comfort of guests should be at the forefront of your planning. Whether you love to spend hours out in the garden, soaking up the sun or whole evenings putting the world to rights with your nearest and dearest, an outdoor seating area might be the best choice for you.
These days there are lots of matching furniture sets to choose from that include seating, tables and parasols. Any barbecue lovers could have a fixed grill built near the seating area, and an outdoor heater is always a wise purchase for when the night gets nippy.
A beautiful summer house
Building a summer house creates a glorious place to relax in the warmer months. Traditionally, summer houses are made of lots of glass, meaning many windows and patio-style doors to maximise the natural light.
The beauty of a structure that’s mostly glass is that the heat from the sun is magnified on days that aren’t usually all that warm. This means that from spring onwards, you can enjoy the sun while admiring the view of your stunning garden.
Kitting your summer house out with traditional wicker furniture and decorating with cute ornaments and bunting can create the atmosphere of a conventional English Country Garden. Add to that image by serving tea in fine china alongside scones with jam and cream (just avoid getting into the “scon/scone” debate if you want things to keep their laid back vibes.)
However your choose to fill the space in your garden, always make sure it’s in line with everything you love about the house. That way your forever home will bring you lots of joy for years to come.
