Garden Decoration Ideas for the Summer

The sun is finally out, the days are warming up and we Brits are starting to spend more time outside (finally!). There’s no better time to update your garden, ready in time to enjoy a cocktail or two outside, soaking up the sun - while it lasts. That’s why, in this blog post, we thought we’d pool together our top garden inspiration ideas, from outdoor rugs to hanging lighting, to spruce up your space in time for BBQ season.

1. Use Brighter Colours

The summer is a great time to get creative. So, why not pick up a paintbrush and spruce up your garden furniture? If you’re feeling bold, go for a bright colour to bring your space to life and to match the surrounding blooming flowers. Pink, orange, aqua, or even a mix of colours is the perfect way to add a summery vibe – just make sure you use a paint designed for outdoor use.

2. Introduce an Outdoor Rug

An outdoor rug can really pull a space together and create a relaxed, homely feel. A simple, patterned rug would be great for a more modern-styled space, while neutral colours would suit a boho style using natural elements. If you have space for a garden sofa, you could even create an ‘outdoor living room’ with a brightly coloured outdoor rug to really make it pop! Here at Rowe Carpets, we will help you find the best rug for you. We stock the highest quality materials from top brands while offering competitive prices. Want to upgrade your garden this summer?

3. Add hanging lights

Whether you drape them around your trees or hang them along your garden fence, adding warm lighting to your garden will help create a calm environment, especially when transitioning to dusk. From lanterns to light bulbs, there are an array of styles to choose from. If hanging lights aren’t your thing, why not opt for candle lanterns? It’s the perfect way to create a cosy space.

4. Add a Chiminea

Chimineas are free-standing fireplaces, usually made from terracotta and hand-decorated. Not only are they beautifully crafted, but they’ll keep you nice and toasty when the sun goes down! Available in a range of different shapes and sizes, chimineas provide a focal point to your garden, a space to retire to with friends and family on a lovely summer’s evening. Why not toast some marshmallows while you’re at it?
