Nest.co.uk's Outdoor Guide to a Winning Style Garden
We’re here to help you create a winning style garden with our amazing outdoor furniture collection.
We understand how hard it can be to make the outside of your home look great, what with having to create a space that’s both stylish and weatherproof. Here’s our guide to creating an outdoor space to be proud of, regardless of the size or shape of your garden.
Choosing a theme
When it comes to outdoor furniture there are so many different themes and design styles it can be difficult to settle on an idea. From contrasting bright metal frames to neutral wooden hues and classic outdoor furniture, creating a gorgeous garden can be tricky. When you’re short on space, a theme that can work inside the home as well as in the garden can be better than going for a mismatched look. For a traditional theme, the Skagerak Overlap Table and benches look just as good inside as outdoors and its rustic design suits all types of garden spaces, thanks to the earthy neutral hues.
You might have a really small grassy area, a roof top terrace or even a concrete outside area that you’re wanting to enjoy this summer. When you’re short on space, being selective is key.
At Nest.co.uk, we’ve got a range of staple garden furniture pieces which will instantly create a stylish outdoor space to enjoy and show off to your friends and family. Be experimental with lighting to create a warm glow for sitting outside on a balmy evening.
The Marset Santorini Pendant Light is the ideal way to experiment with outdoor lighting – a versatile, customisable design that allows you to create multiple compositions, display individually or clustered together.
Somewhere to sit outdoors is essential and these Hay Palissade Lounge Chairs are ideal for small spaces as they don’t take up as much space as full sun loungers but their fluid curved shape make them ideal for laying back and relaxing. Their metal frame means you won’t have to move them if it rains and you can add cushions for extra comfort. Plus, they’re available in three different shades, so you can find the perfect one to match your garden and if you have room there’s a matching ottoman, table and bench to complete the set.
This Skagerak Georg Dining Table by the Nordic design house is ideal for those who’re really short on space as it doubles as both an indoor table and looks perfect outside too. Its minimalist design means it fits in well in either environment and is easy to transport from indoors to outdoors thanks to its lightweight oak frame. There’s also an accompanying bench and stool so you can mix and match.
Accessorizing your space
If you already have the garden furniture but just want to add a little something extra to make your garden look a little fresh this summer, then these Menu Wire Plant Pots are just the ticket. Available in black or white in 3 different heights, they add a charming and delicate Japanese element to your outdoor space and can be placed indoors or outdoors so you can save space by moving them inside if you need some extra room.
By following this guide, you’ll be able to create your own super stylish garden no matter how big or small your space is, with these versatile outdoor furniture pieces from nest.co.uk.
