As summer draws to a close, it’s not unusual to want to make the most of your time outdoors.
While the autumn temperatures may be a little cooler, there is still plenty of time to enjoy your outdoor living space.
You don’t need the sun beaming down to be comfortable in your garden. The autumn is a great time to get some fresh air in the evening, so why not take inspiration from these 12 trends and elevate your living space?
Outdoor Seating For all Seasons
Seating is an essential component for enjoying your time outdoors. Bad seating can entirely ruin your relaxation, while a comfy perch can have you counting down the hours until you can next get out there.
These seating suggestions are the ideal on-trend inspiration for getting your outdoor living space perfect for autumn.
Make the most of the available space by adding seating that fits neatly in a corner. A modern corner sofa will maximise seating options and look fantastic all year round.
Outdoor Bean Bag
Bean bags aren’t just a staple on Love Island, they’re a relaxed outdoor seating trend that’s not going away any time soon. At the end of a long day, you can collapse into a brightly coloured bean bag recliner and let it swallow you up like a marshmallow.
Egg Chair Made for Two
Last year’s must-have item was an egg chair for one, but the trend has been updated and now there’s enough room for your and your beau to get cosy under the stars. Use the lower temperatures as an excuse to cuddle up and enjoy the crisp autumn air.
Day Bed with Removable Foot Stools
Nothing can beat putting your feet up and relaxing under the stars when life gets a bit too busy. When you have guests over, and reclining on a day bed feels a little too up-close-and-personal, the foot stools can be separated and used as extra seating.
Heating Your Outdoor Space
When the temperature drops, it’s time to find a new source of heat. These stylish patio heaters will keep you warm on those cooler nights whether you want them to be a focal point of your seating area or blend in with the décor.
A chiminea is a fantastic alternative to a traditional fire pit. While there’s still access to the flame for toasting marshmallows, the smoke is directed upwards, and the fire is more protected from the elements. It’ll keep you warm, look great and create an ambience with its flickering flame.
Electric Lantern Pillar
The neutral design of a mains powered lantern pillar will complement your furniture, without detracting from it. It will blend in with most design themes and keep you and your guests warm without stealing the show.
Three-in-One Fire Pit
Why choose a basic fire pit when you can have one that has three uses? An entertainer’s dream, a three-in-one fire pit acts as a barbecue, a fire pit bowl, and even an ice bucket when the fire isn’t burning – making it useful all year round.
Pendant Patio Heater
A pendant patio heater hangs overhead and beams warmth downwards towards you and your guests. It’s a great way to save floor space and still keep warm.
Outdoor Cushions For Cosy Nights
Outdoor cushions bring more than just comfort to your patio furniture. They add a splash of colour and style to bring the finishing touches to any garden set up. While you might think any cushion will do, that’s not the case. Cushions designed for the garden tend to be harder wearing and often rain and fade resistant.
Below are this year’s four big trends.
Allow brightly coloured cushions to give your garden some personality and replace the rays of the summer sun. While the flowers in your garden might be fading, your cushions will stay vibrant in every season.
Keep the style of an English country garden alive all year round with some pretty floral cushions. Muted tones keep the design neutral and unlikely to go out of style.
Bold patterns make a statement, and making a statement is in right now. Add some cushions in bold patterns made up of contrasting colours to transform your outdoor living space into a fun place to relax in.
When it comes to garden décor, you can’t go wrong with a tropical print. It’ll never not be in style. A tropical print can create the feeling of an endless summer, bringing a cheerful warmth to the cooler backdrop of autumn.
