Get Your Perfect Summer House

A summer house can be a great addition to your outdoor space, providing you with a whole extra room outdoors! The style or size of summer house you choose will largely depend on the space you have available, but we’ve compiled a list of ideas on how you can make the most of this space, with inspiring ideas on décor, themes and style.

Al Fresco Dining

An outdoor dining space is a fantastic way to add elegance and sophistication to your garden. Ideal for those who enjoy entertaining or family mealtimes, this is best suited to a gazebo style structure.

Place your dining set inside for an elevated al fresco dining experience. You can decorate the gazebo for a sweet summery look with some bunting and use solar lighting to enhance your evening get-togethers. Next, you’ll want to add some stylish tableware for a truly trendy finish.

Placing smaller plants around the entrance creates a more seamless look for your gazebo, blending it with your garden perfectly.

Seeking Shade

Had enough sun but don’t want to spend the warmer days indoors? Providing some shelter from the sun can be a great use of any summer house. This is perfect for small summer houses as you just need something to provide some shade.

For decoration, light, cooling colours are a fantastic option – think coastal hues and neutrals. You’ll want to add some comfortable seating or perhaps a day bed for some well-deserved relaxation, as well as soft inviting cushions to accessorise. You could further enhance your summer house by adding some nautical wall art, truly tying the look together.


Home Office

Using your summer house as a home office is perfect for those who work from home. It provides a quiet area and separates your workspace from the rest of your home, allowing you to better switch off after a long day.

For a modern and sophisticated feel, we suggest using monochrome colouring throughout. Painted white walls provide a bright space to work in and working near the door will allow light and fresh air into your office to keep your calm and focused!

For this you’ll need a desk, a comfortable office chair and any filing units you may need. Why not choose some funky patterns to liven up the space?

Outdoor Studio

Whether you write, read, paint or play an instrument, a summer house is the perfect way to create a secluded spot for your hobbies. It provides you with a space where you are surrounded with nature – perfect for inspiration! You’re also less likely to be disturbed while you focus.

For this space, we recommend using green tones. A light sage green is not only modern but adds to the naturalistic feel of the space. Accentuate with wall décor and any other equipment you require!

Additional Living Room

Whether you’re after a peaceful retreat or you’re a social butterfly looking for additional space to entertain, a larger summer house can be a great solution. We suggest comfortable furniture, cushions and cosy throws for those cooler evenings.

Feel free to get creative with your colours and patterns, as there are endless possibilities with this space! Solar lighting is a great way to add ambiance, and you can create a more inviting space by using an outdoor rug to take away that ‘outdoors’ feel.
