2022 has come around quicker than we were expecting, and now it’s here it is time to turn our attention to this year’s outdoor living trends. 2022 is a year to really make the most of our outside spaces all throughout the year, making them a comfortable and exciting place to enjoy. So, what are the outdoor living trends for 2022?
1. Bringing the indoors outside.
The past couple of years have made us really appreciate our outdoor space, using them more than we would have ever dreamed (even in December!). Due to this, the need for a comfortable and relaxing outdoor area has increased. Encourage yourself to go outside more by creating an outdoor living room with multi-functional outdoor furniture that is made to withstand whatever the English weather may throw at it. Add in a heater, some ambient lighting and high quality scatter cushions and you have created a beautiful extension of your home. The perfect spot for entertaining, dining or just relaxing with a good book.
2. Using recycled materials
The garden is a natural environment; therefore, it feels wrong to fill it with unnatural materials. Choosing recycled materials for your outdoor furniture and accessories is an easy but effective choice to make. Opting for materials like aluminium ensures you are using recycled materials. Aluminium is one of the worlds most recycled materials and can easily be recycled over and over. Not only this but it makes beautiful and weatherproof outdoor furniture. You can even go one better than buying new and think about garden furniture restoration, taking the aluminium furniture you already own that is looking a bit old and tired and give it a new lease of life.
3.Comfort is key in 2022
Comfort is key for 2022, but this doesn’t mean we have to slip on quality and durability. Using sofas and lounge chairs is an easy way to create a comfortable and relaxing environment in your own garden. It is all about designing a space that is cosy, comfy and warm. Perfect for entertaining or for enjoying with the family, or even just enjoying by yourself.
4. Bright and colourful
Gone are the days of boring, plain colours for outdoor spaces. SO often we see a beautiful garden, but it is lacking in colour and personality. Create a colourful oasis using plants, flowers, outdoor furniture, and scatter cushions. Become the envy of your friends with your bright, cheerful and welcoming outdoor space.
5. Outdoor kitchens
The addition of an outdoor space to cook delicious and healthy meals for family and friends is perfect for 2022. This extends further than the usual portable BBQ with many people opting for pizza ovens and outdoor sinks. Take the kitchen outdoor this year and really make the most of time spent with family and friends.
6. Outdoor home offices
With 23.9 million British people now planning to work from home permanently, having a comfortable and enjoyable place to work is key. Even more than this, having an outdoor office ready for when the weather turns warm will make your co-workers very jealous. A place that allows for concentration but is still comfortable and has the added benefit of fresh air. Giving you and your zoom background a much needed change of scenery.
2022 is sure to be another interesting year, but with these small yet mighty changed making the most of your outdoor space will be easy. Filling your garden with eco-friendly and colourful pieces is sure to make a big impact on both you and your garden. A place that is inviting and cosy to be enjoyed all year round.
