Refresh your covered outdoor area in time for summer

Summer’s just around the corner, and what better way to maximise your living space than by giving your covered outdoor area a seasonal refresh.

We’ve come up with a vibrant list of ideas for styling your undercover area just in time for the festive season.

Ceiling fans

Creating gentle breezes with the help of ceiling fans is a great way to stay cool, repel insects and keep the air flowing through your covered outdoor area.

Outdoor cushions

Who says cushions are only for inside? Make your outdoor setting as luxurious as possible by adding outdoor cushions for that summery cabana feel.

Festoon lighting

If your outdoor area is looking a bit tired, vamp things up with some party lights. Festoon lighting is a trendy and durable alternative to the average fairy lights, giving your outdoor space a fun and festive vibe.

Plants and greenery

One thing we think of when it comes to summer relaxation is lush tropical greenery. Kit out your covered area with plants for an exotic resort vibe, or use green installations to create living walls, screens and shade.

Outdoor curtains and blinds

For a beachy feel, install some striped or woven curtains. Add billowing breezy sheers for a touch of sophisticated privacy. Protect your family and guests from UV rays, pollens, insects and nosy neighbours with a smart set of outdoor blinds.

Clever screens and shade solutions

The list goes on! There’s nothing cooler in summer than creating shade, and you’re sure to find something you love.  Awnings, retractable roofing systems, zip screens and sails are just some ideas for sprucing up your outdoor area while simultaneously creating shade, visual appeal and protecting your space from weather and pests.

Gather around the fire pit

Everyone loves a fire pit, right? Establishing a focal point and a place for gathering with family and friends, fire pits are a stunning feature which will take your outdoor entertaining game to the next level.

Cooking outside

You know it’s summer when that delicious smell of barbeque is wafting through the air. Cooking outside is a wonderful way to enjoy the long days and warm nights, and you can get pretty creative with your outdoor kitchen with anything from a simple BBQ to a highly organised stainless steel set-up. It’s completely up to you – just don’t forget the tongs!
