    Choosing the right patio set in UK

    Each year Jenny and I try to buy something new for our home garden and backyard. We have already added a couple of raised bed gardens, planted a new rhubarb patch and two strawberry patches. Now we’re checking out new patio set to beautify the patio area. The patio set we’ve had forever has chairs with arm rests, which can be great but I like having my buddies over for a couple of drinks and some guitar jammin’. The thing is we can’t use the chairs with our old patio set because of the arm rests. So the first thing our new patio set has to have is chairs without them. Jenny never liked us taking her kitchen chairs out to the patio anyways.

    The first patio set I saw that caught my attention was a cast aluminum set that looks just like cast iron. It brought back some great childhood memories but it only had two chairs and we need a set with at least four chairs.  Jenny didn’t have those same childhood memories so she has other ideas. We had no idea there is such a wide variety of patio sets. We would like to avoid buy any plastic, even if it has been recycled and haven’t found any wooden patio sets without arm rests but we have only just started looking.

    Finding the right patio set for you in 2018

    Since every individual has their own tastes and preferences, there’s no “one size fits all” patio set, but we will in this article discuss the  variety of different patio furniture that you can choose to beautify your patio. Combining different patio stones, brick pavers and stone steps is a great way to create a custom landscape design and add value to your exterior landscaping. Keep the various materials in the same color range for a continuous, free flowing, expansive look.

    This sunken patio with a conversation area off of the main patio has great appeal. You could also incorporate these landscape ideas to make a nice brick driveway design that transitions to a patio area off of the house. The combination of paver stones and curving brick pavers helps to define the areas. And doesn’t this conversation set with red cushions look perfect! Bright contrasting cushions give the seating area lots of pizazz.

    Apart from furniture you will also need heaters to keep yourself warm in cold winters. You can opt for nice design patio heaters to beautify your  backyard along with providing necessary heat to keep you and your surroundings warm.  There are different types of patio  heaters available in UK, for a detailed guide check this article. For indoor heating you can opt for oil filled radiators that are more economical and efficient. Oil filled radiators are also environmental friendly.
