When it comes to winter, it can often mean that for many gardens they end up being ignored or go un-used.
However, if you’ve got the right setup you can still continue to use it actively when you want to. Your winter garden can be just as good of a source of enjoyment as it will often be in the summer. Many households look for the Scandi ‘hygge’ way of life nowadays! Hygge is a Danish and Norwegian word for a mood of cosiness and comfort.
So, if you’re someone who wants to make good use out of their outdoor area and create this outdoor ‘hygge’ mood this winter, here are some tips on how to make a winter garden cosy.
Ambiance with lighting
The ambiance is important because if you’re not providing the right elements to the outdoor space, it can often look cold and uninviting. Lighting can be a great way to create the right atmosphere that a garden will be lacking during the wintertime.
They don’t need to be anything over the top or grand, but something simple like fairy lights can be impressive. The twinkly effect they provide is like the sky at night and can provide just enough lighting to make it comfortable.
If you want to go a bit beyond fairy lights, you could always get some standing lighting that are pinpointed all over the garden to allow illumination to and from the house. There are some great options out there from UV powered to wired light fittings.
Shelter from the elements is key. When making your winter garden cosy, try to mimic the indoor feel and security that your indoor areas can provide. That means creating a type of roofing that will catch any rainfall and help reduce the wind from blowing through too.
If you’re looking for some inspiration for your garden upgrade, you can always turn to Sunrock Balconies for Infinity Glass balconies or balustrades. they offer stunning visual benefits even in the dark. The glass balustrading provides the feeling of an openness and space. Not only that, they can help provide shelter.
Provide a source of warmth
It’s a cold time of year so you want to think about providing yourself with a source of warmth. This can be in the form of a fire pit or gas patio heater.
Providing blankets and throws will help to keep everyone warm and cosy too.
Keep it in good condition
And finally, be sure to keep your garden in good condition by mowing your grass and keeping any shrubs or trees cut back and neatened up. Pathways should be cleared of leaves, moss or algae to avoid slipping.
