You should consider the various materials available for patio furniture. Traditional wicker or bamboo patio furniture now comes in a variety of weights, colors and pricing tiers. For a more substantial feel, you might try redwood or cedar furniture, which will be naturally resistant to warping, decay and insects. If you`re worried about weather wear, you might want to consider wrought iron or stone for tables and chairs. Even cushions for couches and chairs are now made of acrylic fabrics that can withstand all types of weather and sun exposure.
Be very careful of the quality when it comes to magic corners as some can be a bit flimsy and whatever you do don’t overload them with heavy items like mixers or blenders. An easy mistake to make with corner units is to forget the corner post that comes with them – this is very important as it prevents the door handles from bashing into each other – so when ordering your base units make sure whoever you are purchasing it from knows that you need a corner unit as opposed to a standard base unit and ask for a corner post! You also need to allow for the width of this corner post when working out the best combination of base units.
A permanent outdoor fireplace can add a real hint of luxury to your backyard or deck. Built-in or permanent outdoor fireplaces tend to require more extensive construction and are therefore generally more expensive than freestanding outdoor fireplaces. Common materials for freestanding or built-in outdoor fireplaces are stone, stucco, tile and brick. You`ll have plenty of designs to choose from, and matching your backyard or deck`s overall design shouldn`t be a problem. Outdoor fireplaces should always be located away from any potentially flammable items like trees or shrubs, and you should always use a spark guard and flame-resistant fire mat when your fireplace is in use. Also, be sure to check with your local fire department regarding their outdoor fire codes before installing your outdoor fireplace.
Arrange your spread on an ocean-vista picnic table and play up the nautical theme (fish motif on linens, blue hydrangeas) with the tabletop decor. Why do benches work so well outside? No backs, which will help keep the captivating view unobstructed for everyone.
A traditional English garden is known for an abundant array of flowers surrounding a large green lawn, with romantic walkways and hideaway seating areas. The look is beautiful for traditional and historic home styles.Furniture for an English garden is definitely traditional, Voyles says. "For this style I`d look to hardwoods and teak to get that `antique bench in England` look." You `ll need cushions and pillows made with outdoor fabric to keep rustic seating comfortable, Bartron says. "English style is often floral and chintzy, but you don`t want the patio furniture to compete too much with the flower garden. Keep the patterns simple, such as a plain pastel fabric accented with a floral pillow," she advises.
Make over a porch with a few items (day bed, potted plants, Chinese lanterns) that will make the space comfortable and stylish. Thinking creatively can also help you stick to a budget. There`s no reason why a trunk from inside can`t step in as your outdoor coffee table. Besides, it`s only for a season.
If you can’t physically make a kitchen bigger by knocking through to another room, there are small changes you can make to ensure you’re getting to most from the space you do have. Simple things like replacing your cupboard door fronts with thinner designs or choosing smaller appliances that fit under cupboards or easily inside them. Get rid of freestanding appliances such as fridges and install under counter fridges and freezers. This means you can give yourself more worktop space in the area which was previously taken up by a free standing appliance.
Always discuss socket positions with your electrician before they start work! Too many is better than too few. Always consider what splashback material you are using as sockets will increase the cost of some, such as glass, which is cut off-site by specialists – it’s easier to cut-around sockets if you’re using more traditional materials like wall tiles. Sockets should sit a minimum 150mm above worktops and always be installed by a qualified electrician.
