Gorgeous Garden Spaces That Upgrade Your Home

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.

Making The Most Of Garden Spaces

Garden spaces are so often overlooked when it comes to updating or improving your home. We all strive to have the latest kitchen style, adding extra light to that dark room or creating unique areas within the house that will turn any guest green with envy but why is the garden always forgotten about?

The outdoor space is just as much a part of your home and it should reflect that if you really want to create that wow factor. Here are a few ideas on how you can make the most of your garden spaces.

Go For Decking or a Patio Area

This area is important because it is usually the first thing you step out onto when you enter the garden from your home. Whichever style you opt for it needs to tie in with the theme or look you are aspiring to achieve. It isn’t just about providing an area for sitting, it is also about joining the inside with the outside. If you have a contemporary feel inside your home you may want to go for a black or grey stained decking area. If you have more of a country feel in your house you may want to go for natural stone paving slabs. It is so important to spend some time getting this spot on in order to complete the look.

Invest in Garden Furniture

The choice is vast– Rattan, wooden, lounge areas, sofas, glass tables… Let the shopping commence! The great thing about choosing garden furniture is that you can really bring the indoors, outside and allow those creature comforts to spill over. By adding cushions, throws, table cloths and decor, you can make this area just as homely as your living room.

Add Height to Garden Spaces

By planting trees around the borders of your garden spaces you will not only be adding more interest to the areas you will also be achieving more privacy. Be careful about what you choose and definitely do your research to find out how high a tree will eventually reach prior to jumping in and planting. Speak to the experts at the garden centre to gain their opinions too. Also, chat with any neighbours to ensure they are happy for you to add these to your garden.

Attract Wildlife Into Your Garden

There is nothing better than watching wildlife enter your garden spaces and enjoy it as much as you. Think about adding bird boxes, bug houses, a pond or water feature to attract bees, dragonflies, birds, a variety of bugs and maybe even hedgehogs.

Natural Screening With Bamboo

Bamboo screens are really in fashion at the moment and I can definitely see why. Available in a variety of colours and bamboo widths, these screens can act as the perfect garden accessory to cover ugly fences, to hide away any unsightly areas of the garden and to also add a little more interest to the space. They don’t tend to come cheap but they are an investment and are well worth the money.

Add a Garden Room

If the size of your garden permits this, you cannot go wrong with adding a garden room of some sort. If you only want a small build, a summer house is perfect to squeeze into a corner of your garden but if you fancy a room for a hobby or an office why not splash out and go for a full-sized garden cabin? Not only will this add another room onto your home and allow you more freedom, it will also add value to your house as well as making a great focal point in your garden. It’s a win-win-win!

What About A Pergola?

I adore pergolas and if I could have one in my own garden space I would just have to cover it all in stunning Wisteria. Not only will this provide shade on a hot day as well as adding privacy, but it will also make your garden beautiful. Imagine this with wrought iron garden furniture underneath, maybe some glass lanterns hanging from the beams and a chiminea burning on a summers evening. Pure bliss.

Use Containers For Plants

If your garden spaces aren’t large enough to add flower beds or raised planters etc. you can easily get around this by adding pots and containers instead. These will not only bring an interesting focal point they can also be easily moved around which will allow your garden to be ever changing. By using bright colours, you will be attracting those gorgeous bees and butterflies as well as making your garden a cheerful and happy place to be.
