Outdoor edit: 16 pieces to spruce up your space for warmer days

Get your outdoor space summer-ready with these updates, from smart lighting to gorgeous furniture.

Summer is almost upon us, and with it should (hopefully) come the chance to soak up some good weather. And after waiting for it all year, you don’t want to be caught out when the sun finally does make an appearance.

If your outdoor space could do with a spruce up, we’ve found 16 great pieces that will help you do just that, from cute accessories to furniture for a complete overhaul.

Take a seat

Whether you have a small balcony or a large garden, you’re unlikely to find yourself spending much time there unless you have a comfortable space to sit. Here are some options from sofas to folding chairs.

Going potty

Potted plants are a quick way to brighten up any lacklustre outdoor space. Go the extra mile with these pots and accessories that will add some colour.

Brighten up

Portable lamps and lanterns are really handy for when your outdoor gathering stretches into the evening. Pop a few around the space to create a soft glow.

Pop of colour

Outdoor rugs are not only a great way to make your outdoor space feel more welcoming, they’re also perfect for brightening it up with colour and pattern.
