Don’t panic if you’ve barely had a chance to water the plants, let alone re-stain the furniture, a few new additions are all you need to give your outdoor space a new lease of life.
“With careful styling, you can create an area that’s both beautiful and functional,” says Katie Watson, interior designer at Fishpools.
“For families with small gardens, it’s important to make best use of every inch of space available, as otherwise it can quickly feel cluttered and unusable. Compact, foldable furniture is a great choice for those with a limited patio area, as these can be neatly stowed away and out of sight when not in use.
“Beautifully crafted bistro designs are perfect for country-style gardens, while sleek, stainless steel sets are a great addition to modern exteriors.”
