Easy Outdoor Changes to Consider During Self-Isolation

We may be stuck at home at the moment, but those of us who are fortunate enough to have a garden or an outdoor area, no matter how big or small, have never been more grateful. We’ve been blessed with some lovely sunshine so far this spring, and as the British weather can be very ‘up and down’, we’re committed to appreciating every second of it while it lasts! So, here are a few things you can do, whilst self-isolating, which will help to make your outdoor space that little bit more enjoyable.

Paint the shed/fence/gate

Now is the perfect time to grab that old tin of paint you’ve been keeping in the shed for months and get busy! Maybe your fence has seen better days? Or what about that old gate you’ve been meaning to spruce up? Your garden will be much sunnier for the burst of colour!

Outdoor Dining

Nothing feels more quaint than mealtimes ‘al fresco’, so make sure you’re all set for summer with an outdoor dining set. Here at ‘Only Home’, we love the Amelia & Joseph Mariposa Teak Finish Outdoor Dining Set. It’s super stylish and big enough for the whole family! 


Pot Plants

For those who are a little ‘green-fingered’, now may be a good time to make a feature of those pretty flowers which are starting to spring up in the flower beds. How about transferring some into pots to create a pretty feature which you can move around the garden? If you’re feeling really creative, you could paint the pots too! Or if you're feeling lazy why not try some of our whimsical planters like this stone frog! 

Add textiles

By using textiles such as cushions, blankets and rugs to your outdoor space, you can create that cosy, snug feeling we all love. You could gather a few things you may have lying around the house, but be sure to bring them in if the weather changes. Alternatively, here at ‘Only Home’, we have a wide range of cushions and rugs which are perfect for outdoors and are suitable for all weather conditions. We love this Zig-zag print that is available in a range of colours and sure to 'lift' any space. 

Hopefully that’s given you a few ideas of little changes you can make to your outdoor space whilst at home staying safe and self-isolating. Your garden will be ready for summer in no time! Enjoy the sunshine!
