An outdoor living room is a great way to take your garden to the next level to make the most of your garden. For many of us, this type of project can seem to be a complicated task and as a result can take second place to designing interior spaces. We have created these 6 easy design steps that needed cost a fortune to help guide through the process, so that everyone can transform their outdoor space and enjoy that bottle of crisp white wine on ice, while entertaining comfortably in their beautiful outdoor living room.
1/ Make your outdoor living room comfy for everyone
Get enough seats for family and friends so you can entertain safely and happily in your outdoor living room. Just because it’s outdoors, it doesn’t mean you cannot be comfortable. These sofas are the perfect base for outside, with weatherproof fabric that can withstand a beautiful British summer shower. Yes, the cushions need to be kept inside long-term, but that’s what garden sheds are for.
2/ Add soft layers to your outdoor living room
Cushions and throws make any outdoor space feel like home and will add colour and texture to soften the look. Go for natural fibres, like linen and cotton as they feel right at home in the garden. This blue ombre design we’ve chosen is a beaut.
3/ Make it personal
Add your own design touch to a greenhouse or cold frame to help it bed into your scheme. We gave this easy-to-build cold frame a lick of pale green paint and some new brass handles, making it fit perfectly into our outside living design. It is beautiful and practical, helping us to grow seeds for our veg patch.
4/ Zone it with a rug
Rugs are a great way to define the space as an outdoor ‘room’. This rug is for outdoor use and adds some colour too. Durable and beautiful, no wonder our Dachshund Buckley loves it.
5/ Plant it up
Large planters will add architecture to the outdoor living room you are creating and give more definition and interest. Plant them up with your favourite flowers or plants to continue that houseplant obsession outdoors. We have gone for Brown turkey fig, love the leaf shape, and Hydrangea Paniculata, because it is so beautiful and the white of the giant cone-like flower heads give the look a fresh lift.
6/ Light it up
An outdoor living room is not just for day time- add in some lighting for night time ambience. You needn’t have outdoor plugs or wiring either because there are lots of solar powered options available. These white solar powered ball lights are effortlessly chic and come with a spike so they can slot easily into any border or planter.
