Homes Ideal For Summer entertaining

We all love a barbeque or a garden party, which is why homes with outside spaces are worth the investment – because they’ll always be popular.

Here are some of the features that make outdoor entertaining easy – giving you everything you need to enjoy the summer in a home that has added value.


Patios are perfect for parties

Patios offer a practical and functional space to enjoy outdoor parties and barbecues. They’re low maintenance and provide a useful area for all types of activities.

Patios allow you to entertain more expansively, as you have a solid base to sit tables and chairs and barbecues. This entertainment area can then be easily protected with an awning or gazebo to shield from strong sunshine or rain.

Patios are one of the most sought-after aspects of any garden because they’re always highly used and extremely durable.


Relax on a stylish veranda

A veranda is a stylish feature that gives a house the wow factor. It also makes a comfortable place to relax all year round. Some new properties have built-in verandas.

Traditional verandas could be made from wrought iron and have glass panel roofs. A more modern veranda may have an aluminium structure with glass or polycarbonate roof panels. The structure can be attached to the front, side or rear part of a property – usually it’s positioned where it’s sheltered or will catch the sun.

In summer, a veranda can be the focus for your outdoor entertaining. While in winter, it becomes a warm, sheltered spot to sit and enjoy the best of the day.


Experience the mental and physical benefits of a lawn

A lawn provides a safe place for kids to play and a soft surface to enjoy picnics and games. It helps you improve both your physical and mental health.

Because turf grass is such a highly practical surface, it can be used for different types of sports and other recreational activities. Noise and glare are reduced by the absorbency of the grass, and it’s more comfortable and less strenuous underfoot than gravel or paving.

As well as the practical aspects of a lawn, it’s also ideal for promoting wellbeing. A green space has been proven to improve mental health and reduce stress. There are plenty of reasons to make a lawn a priority in your new home.


Enjoy the outdoors all year round with a conservatory

A conservatory gives you additional space and acts as a link between house and garden. The extended living space a conservatory offers increases the value of a home.

Because most conservatories are built using minimal brickwork and mostly glass, you can enjoy looking at your garden in all weathers whilst staying undercover. And with the types of glazing now used, conservatories can stay cool in summer and warm in winter.

A conservatory is an excellent addition to any home and offers a luxurious and stylish place to relax.
