Make the most of your garden or terrace this Summer by creating an outdoor living room. An obvious extension of the house, garden rooms are all the rage and are the perfect space for relaxing and entertaining. Something as simple as updating your accessories can give you a real lift and create lovely holiday vibes!
Long, luxurious evenings entertaining friends, lazy days lying around on the lawn, firepits, barbecues, card games and star gazing – turn your thoughts to garden rooms and staycations!
Consider the major elements of your outdoor living room such as big pieces of furniture, a barbecue (built-in?), colour scheme, awning or parasol, dining table or low coffee table, where the sun rises and sets and the desired view which will determine your seating area. Once you’ve got this sorted, you can turn your thoughts to accessories.

Nothing creates an atmosphere like lighting and we’ve got a great selection of outdoor lighting options to see you through the Summer.
