When it comes to garden spaces, bigger is by no means better. If you’ve got a balcony, patio or small garden, you can create a beautiful outdoor space that you love with a little bit of planning and inspiration. Whilst we can’t design your garden for you, we can give you some great ideas to help get your imagination going and how to make the most out of the space you’ve got.

Bamboo Shelter

Add a little bit of Tuscany to your outdoor space with a rustic bamboo shelter. This style of covering will bring shade in the summer and protection in the windier weather. If you want to add some plants to your space, then it will also act as a trellis for climbing plants. You can easily add this style to any outdoor space.

Built-In Benches

Some freestanding furniture can be bulky and take up a lot of room. Maximise your space by incorporating some fixed seating and benches into your garden design. To add a splash of colour, incorporate some Moroccan-style cushions and blankets. Not all gardens have to be green, and the red tones will complement your garden features nicely.

Outdoor Dining

You can’t beat a bit of outdoor dining on a warm summer’s evening. If you want to add in an outdoor dining set, then think carefully about the space you have and the type of furniture you’re going to buy. There’s no point in having a large dining set taking up all of the limited room you have. Once you’ve found the set that’s right for your space, add an elegant tablecloth and some feature candles to turn your outdoor dining space into a luxurious one.

Add-In a Fire Pit

Adding warmth, ambience and light, a fire pit will bring so much to a garden. They’re available in a lot of different shapes and sizes, so there’s bound to be one that will work in your garden space, no matter how small. They make a great focal point, which you can then use as a feature point for the rest of your design.

Water Features

Whilst we don’t necessarily mean having a cascading waterfall in your garden space, you can get some great minimalist water features that are perfect for whatever space may be available to you. A water feature will make your garden a place of relaxation and peace and they make great focal points, as well as helping to create a tranquil environment.

A wonderful thing about a conservatory is that it can be extremely versatile with its uses.

For instance, you may use it one night to relax and read your favourite book and on another

occasion it may be the spot for your children to have their playtime. The issue is though;

these types of activities are usually best for the summer months – as it seems when we’re in

winter our conservatories a little colder than normal! But this doesn’t have to be the case,

so we’ve put together the best ways to keep your conservatory nice and cosy in the winter


Get Blinds Fitted

Adding blinds into your conservatory can be hugely important during the winter months, as

they provide an energy saving and energy efficiency like no other. With specialist fabrics you

can find your conservatory keeping warm in and cold air out. Ideally, curtains would be

better for this, but it can be difficult to match curtains to the styling and décor of

conservatories. Therefore, to make the conservatory cosier you can use pleated blinds. The

reason for this is that they are made from a thicker fabric which means they can do a better

job of blocking out the heat – and as a wonderful bonus they look beautiful too!

Portable Heaters

Another wonderful way to keep your conservatory cosy is by adding more heat it by getting

some well-designed portable heaters. However, it is important to make sure that you get an

electrical heater instead of one that is reliant on gas. This is because the electrical ones are

much safer and all it will take is an easy flick of the switch to add a little warmth into back to

your conservatory this winter.

Add Some Candles, Cushions and Covers

Without a doubt, these 3 additions will make sure your conservatory is significantly cosier in

the winter. You can place some candles around the room to set a nice relaxed mood – and if

you’re a fan of the extra aromas – you can get some scented ones too! Also, by placing

some cushions and covers over your rattan furniture, you are instantly transferring the set

through from summer to winter, whilst also making sure you’re extra comfy.
