Planning Your Perfect Summer Haven

Creating the perfect garden sitting area and haven involves a careful blend of practical considerations and personal preferences. With luxury garden parasols offering versatility in size and colour, you have a fantastic starting point to create an inviting outdoor space. Here are some factors to ponder

Location, Location, Location: Look beyond the obvious spots in your garden. Consider secluded corners, under-utilized spaces, or areas with unique features like a beautiful tree or a calming water feature. Think about the proximity to your house, especially if you want easy access to amenities like the kitchen, BBQ, or pool.


Activities and Functionality: Define the primary activities you envision in your garden haven. Will it be a quiet reading nook, a space for family board games, or a place for casual meetings? Would you like to entertain your friends there, and is it just for summer, or would you like to be able to sit out on bright winter days too?  Tailor the design accordingly, ensuring ample seating and space for desired activities.


Sun vs. Shade: Determine your preference for sun exposure. While some may crave the warmth of the sun, others may prefer the coolness of shade. Consider a mix of both by strategically placing your sitting area to accommodate different times of the day and use your parasol umbrella in such a way as to ensure this


View and Ambiance: Capitalize on any scenic views your garden offers. Whether it's a lush greenery, blooming flowers, or a distant landscape, orient your seating area to maximize visual appeal. Enhance the ambiance with soft lighting, fragrant plants, and comfortable furnishings. 
Integration with Parasols: With your luxury garden parasols, explore how they can complement your chosen location and mood. Opt for the appropriate size based on the available space and the desired coverage. The variety of colour combinations allows you to match or contrast with your garden's aesthetic, adding an extra layer of style.



Aesthetic Appeal: Define the look and feel you want to achieve. Whether it's a cosy cottage retreat, a sleek modern oasis, or a bohemian paradise, select your parasol, furniture, decor, and plantings that align with your vision. Harmonise the elements to create a cohesive and inviting atmosphere.


Comfort and Convenience: Prioritise comfort with comfortable seating, weather-resistant materials, and practical amenities like side tables and storage. Ensure easy access to refreshments, whether it's a cool drink from the kitchen or snacks from the BBQ. And use a smoke-free fire-pit like ours with a "chimney" to make those long evenings even longer.


By carefully considering these factors and leveraging the versatility of our luxury garden parasols, you can design a captivating and functional sitting area that becomes your ultimate outdoor haven. Whether you're seeking relaxation, recreation, or connection with nature, your garden retreat will be a cherished space for years to come.
