As the weather’s heating up for Summer, now’s the time to spruce up your garden with some innovative outdoor entertaining spaces.  With a little creativity, there are a lot of things you can do in your garden to create your ideal entertaining space, whether you're having a small group of close friends over for drinks, a family get together or simply relaxing in your very own home spa.

Outdoor spaces have grown in importance over the last few years, serving as so much more than just a place for plants and flowers.  Modern log cabins, garden shelters of all shapes and sizes and hot tub shelters are all the rage right now, or how about a BBQ shelter or wooden gazebo?  There’s no doubt that an addition like this will make entertaining and the time spent in your garden much more enjoyable.

Having friends over?  A log cabin is a wonderful space where you can create a bar and dining area as well as seating area for relaxing with drinks and nibbles.

Modern log cabins such as The Hotham cleverly combines an outdoor covered area and a separate garden room so you can really get the best of both worlds when you have guests over. It’s a great multifunctional design that you can enjoy all year round, come rain or shine.

If you dream of owning your very own garden bar and being the landlord of your own pub, then there is an array of garden buildings suitable for this.  A log cabin can give you plenty of usable internal space for a decent bar area and seating.  Or how about a funky bar shed that has a great drop-down hatch ready to serve your guests. 

With your very own garden bar you’ll be in complete charge of the drinks, the music, the ambience and the guest list.  It’s the stuff of dreams and it’ll the ‘in place’ to go for your family and friends.  Just imagine, no more queues at the bar, not being able to find a table and no taxi fare home😊.

You can even convert a standard shed into a bar with a little bit of imagination like the Tiger Sheds Shiplap Pent Shed!

Or, if you already have a shed or cabin or simply need a freestanding garden bar, how about these great bar ideas. They’re quick and easy to build and you can have it up and be serving drinks with an hour!

Find your Perfect Pergola

Creating a beautiful garden retreat with a wooden pergola is an easy and uncostly way of extending your home entertaining space.  A garden pergola is perfect for garden soirées and will make your garden look like a million dollars.  It’s a great way of defining your outdoor space and a lovely spot for creating an outdoor dining area or seating area. Think comfortable chairs with weatherproof cushions, cosy throws, a rug and outdoor lighting and your garden retreat will encourage your guests to stay for longer on those lazy summer nights.

Find your Perfect Garden Spa

If you love nothing more than a spa break, then let the spa come to you!  You can design an exclusive home spa which you can enjoy anytime you choose within a versatile garden room, summerhouse or log cabin.  

Sounds expensive?   Well, it really doesn’t need to be.   It’s cheaper and easier than you think to create a DIY home spa and you can make it as simple or as luxurious as you want.  Think beautiful tiles, a hot tub, ambient lighting and piped calming music to set the mood.  You could even add a wellness element to your home spa experience with a relaxation and meditation zone.

A wooden shelter is the perfect area for your outdoor kitchen or for sheltering on sunny days.  It’s easy to tailor to your own taste with personal touches such as climbing plants and outdoor lighting to set the mood. There’s no limit to what you can create!

Find your Perfect Games Room

If you have friends and family over regularly for a games night, then you can transform a larger shed or log cabin into a games room.  If you have a pool table, then you’ll need a bigger space but if you’re into playing cards or board games then something smaller scale with room for a table and chairs will work just fine.
