Get Your Outdoor Space Ready

How to Guides

Spring is just round the corner, with the summer close behind. Now’s the best time to get your outdoor space ready for outdoor living and entertaining.

Longer days and clocks springing forward, means it’s time to take a look at your outdoor space and update it in preparation for leisurely hours outside, alone or with friends and family.

Whether your outdoor space is a city balcony, a small city garden or a small country garden, you can make your small space look better, and ready for outdoor living and entertaining.

The outside space is an extension of your living area, so extend your personal style to to your outside space. There are simple ways to enhance your space, by adding pots and plants, adding outdoor upholstery, or creating a special reading space or nook. Treat this space like any other space in your home and think about the colour scheme, the accessories, as well as how you intend to use the space.

To help you get your outdoor space ready, we have pulled together some outdoor space ideas from Argos.

Add pots and planters

Make your space more beautiful by adding pots and planters. You can be quite theatrical with with your choice of pots, or your choice of plants. Go green or add beautiful floral or scented plants. Pots and planters come in a variety of styles including rustic country, or industrial contemporary styles. Think about symmetry, creating shade, adding privacy or just having the perfect backdrop with the location, choice and size of plants.

Create a reading spot

Perfect for reading, dozing or watching the world go by (if installed on a balcony). A bench or cosy seating area is the perfect addition to a small outside space. Add planting around to soften the area, make sure to have enough space to add a side table or surfaces to perch your refreshments.

Update your table

Take a good look at the furniture in your outside space. Is it tired? Has it seen better days? Is it past a quick paint job? Is it even right for your space? This summer is designated a summer of freedom, after the lockdowns and restrictions over the recent summers. So celebrate your new found freedom in an environment that you love.
