Having a brand new patio area installed is a great way to give your garden a new lease of life, and there’s no better time to do it than over the winter season – that way, you’ll have maximum time to enjoy it over the spring and summer.


Of course, with a beautifully paved patio comes the opportunity to enhance your garden’s overall look! If you’re feeling stuck for inspiration, why not read on to take a look at some of our favourite patio ideas and inspiration for 2022?


Outdoor Kitchens


Dining al fresco is always a lot of fun during the summer, so why not go the whole nine yards and cook outside, too?


Whilst the UK may not be dry or warm enough to justify an all-inclusive outdoor kitchen, building a kitchen area complete with pizza oven, barbecue and grill will allow you to make the most of the al fresco experience, cooking and dining with friends from your patio!


There are plenty of different styles to go with when it comes to building an outdoor kitchen, but a more rustic, traditional look remains the most popular. However, there’s plenty of room to shop around and see what you like.


Multi-Purpose Furniture


Get the most out of your new patio furniture by taking the multi-purpose route.


These days, plenty of high-end garden furniture is designed to fulfil a range of different purposes, making it fantastically versatile and making for better storage and range of use. These pieces may be a bigger investment, but they’re certainly worth the money in the long run.


Examples of multi-purpose furniture include extendable dining tables, convertible 2-in-1 benches and tables, stackable sun loungers and bottle coolers that double as speakers and lamps.


Outdoor Technology


The pandemic has sparked a lot of interest in outdoor technology, enhancing the outdoor experience and bringing it into the 21st century.


Outdoor workspaces (for those working from home) are on the rise. Adding music and TVs to your outdoor space is still at the top of the wishlist for many homeowners, too. There are also aesthetic upgrades – LED color-changing technology can be a fun way of changing the atmosphere in a space, as accompanying apps allow you to change the color of the lights to any color, including green and red for Christmas or orange for Halloween.


All-Weather Furniture


Accessories and furniture that make it easier to stay outdoors longer are all popular upgrades, such as products like fire pits, heat lamps and comforting blankets and throws. These products and ideas aren’t new but their utility in turning outdoor spaces into daily living areas is what makes them particularly popular in 2021, especially after a year of spending much more time catching up with friends outdoors rather than within the home.


Is there anything better than spending a winter evening surrounding a warm fire pit and toasting marshmallows with friends?
