How to make the most of your outside space
Spring, summer, winter or autumn, an outdoor space should be a perfect area to take a break from the stresses of day to day life. Whether that’s a small city balcony or wide-open garden at the back of your house, there’s no outdoor space that can’t be perfected. Outdoor furniture, such as a Hangout Pod, could have a revolutionary effect on how you use your space, ideal for both solo relaxing and chilling out with mates. Struggling to get to grips with your garden or balcony? Here are some of our top tips for utilising your space.
Is your balcony or garden missing a botanical touch? Plants have the ability to breathe new life into your outdoor space, no matter the size. If you’ve never grown plants before, start with something simple. Flowers in pre-grown pots only need watering every so often and can provide the gorgeous colour boost a grey area needs. If you’re into your cooking, why not get even more practical? Herbs can be grown to big sizes, are super easy to look after and provide your dishes with a delicious finishing touch. Also, if you’re worried about the size of your space, don’t be put off. Wall climbing plants can be even more effective at transforming a small balcony. When in doubt, think vertically.
If you find yourself only using your outside space during the summer, it’s time to make some big changes. Kitting out your balcony with a cosy wood fire pit is a great way to make your space both social and warm. If you want to make things even warmer for autumn drinks, we recommend investing in a heater to keep you and your guests comfortable. Alongside some lovely blankets, you’ll be able to snuggle up with your friends all through the year.
Never underestimate lighting – the right kind of lights can either make or break your outdoor space. When it comes to those days and nights in the garden or on a city balcony, your lights will set the tone for the kind of atmosphere you’re looking for. Looking for a comfortable vibe first? Your best bet is hanging up some chic bulb fairy lights. If you’re going for more of a party atmosphere, brighter lights surrounding your garden will keep the part going deep into the night. Whichever you choose, there’s no doubt that picking the right lighting makes all the difference to your outdoor space.
What’s the point in crafting the perfect outdoor space if you don’t have anywhere to sit? We suggest putting some comfy outdoor furniture around your fire pit to add another layer of snugness to the area. What better choice than a Hangout Pod? Made with soft Olefin fabric, this circular pod can be easily set up in less than ten minutes and can be used both inside and outside. The Hangout Pod Weather Covers will also protect you from the rain or sun.
Remember – your outside space should be a refuge all the way through the year and a place for you to both socialise and spend time with yourself. Add some flowers, comfy furniture and chic lighting to your outdoor place and you’ll have an area to enjoy all year round.
