AD / Paid collaboration with Gardenman
As long time London-dwellers, we understand the value of having an outdoor space. And now, more than ever, any outdoor space is appreciated greatly by many of us. Our balcony, for example, maybe small but we try and get as much from it as possible. From the herb and flower planters hanging from the railings to the bistro set for al fresco dining, we utilise all the space. We even sought out high and low for a space-saving outdoor sofa that combines comfort with storage so we could stash plant pots, cushions and throws away. We now have a space that not only looks pretty but which is fit for dining and entertaining. No matter the size though there are ways to keep that outdoor entertaining feel going all year round…
Outdoor furniture specialists, Gardenman, is a one-stop-shop for all your garden and outdoor space needs. If, like us, space is a premium, then the Royalcraft Palermo rattan effect bar table set is great for tighter nooks. Or for a compact version a rattan balcony bistro set that tucks neatly away will work wonders for a tighter area. For those with more space to play with, sofa sets are a great place to start when looking at options to host guests. Gardenman has oodles of styles to choose from, including sleek modern designs such as the Zeno chaise sofa set to family-friendly options like the Chelsea lifestyle suite.
Now we know what you’re thinking – why are they talking about being outdoors when winter is upon us and the days of sun-worshipping are long gone? Make the most of your outdoor space for as long as you can, we say! Simple additions to outside such as ceiling fairy lights, hurricane lanterns and cosy throws can transform a space. Better yet, for those who have the space and a few extra pennies, a fire heater would create the ultimate hub for being outdoors over the colder climes. Gardenman have various options ranging in price, from standalone gas fire pits to built-in fire bits in the centre of dining sets.
For now, we’re going to head back onto our balcony with a warming cup of tea to enjoy the autumn sunset but one day, perhaps we’ll be sharing this post from the warmth of a fire pit. How are you making the most of your outdoor space this year? Let us know in the comments below!
