Loveseat bench

Are you stuck on ideas for how to decorate your outside patio? If you are lucky enough to have a patio that overlooks scenic views, or if you just want a quiet place to relax in the warmth, add some benches so you can spend the day bathing in the sun. Loveseat benches can add a romantic and element touch to your patio and can double as a lookout point. Tuck a loveseat bench in between trees for the ultimate privacy nook.

Neutral colours and bright flowers

Match neutral decor with vibrant floral arrangements for the best solution to the question of how to decorate your porch this summer. The natural colours are great for furniture pieces to keep them cool when the sun is shining. When contrasted with bright flowers, you can have a pop of colour that will make a statement and make the open area seem even more bright and inviting. Besides, what says summer better than some seasonal flowers? Neutral coloured furniture can be used all year round, so you can get the most out of your somerset patio this summer whilst making a worthy investment for all seasons.

Fire pit

Perfect for those summer evenings spent outside, adding a custom fire pit is a stylish and practical solution to keeping warm as the day cools down. Use a patio fire bowl that will look chic and luxurious even when it’s not lit. Add some character to the area with printed cushions and soft seats so you and your family can sit around the fire and get the most out of your patio.

Dining patio

Take your summer BBQs to the next level by adding a dining area to your patio in Somerset. Having a long table with some chairs can have multiple functions as a dining table, breakfast area or even a space for just relaxing with some friends. This is a great way to fill up any spare space that goes unused. It’s also the perfect solution to creating an entertainment area if you are looking to spend more time outside.


Another useful tip if you spend a lot of time on your patio in the evenings. As it starts to get dark, turn on some dainty fairy lights that are hung around the patio door or the seating area. This is good for adding mood lighting as the evening turns to night without taking up a lot of space or electricity. Battery powered fairy lights can be used to decorate overhanging trees, to wrap around windows or to even hang above your outside table.

Hang a hammock

If you are wondering how to make a small patio look nice for the ultimate summer feeling, hang a light coloured hammock for some personal space to unwind. Hammocks are a great addition to smaller patios if you don’t want to take up too much space with a dining table and chairs, and are easy to take down and store away when winter comes back around.

Outdoor bar

Entertain your friends and family by having a patio bar for those summer days spent outside. Depending on whether you have a small or large patio, an outdoor bar can consist of merely a drinks cart with surrounding seating, all the way to an outdoor kitchen. Make the bar unique to you by adding some printed art decor and vibrant cushions for the seats so your guests can stay comfortable. Go one step further with your outdoor bar by adding a gazebo so you can still enjoy your drinks in the summer rain!
