There’s no denying that home interior trends are constantly evolving and changing – but can the same be said for exterior design trends within the home? Of course, it’s a much bigger project to constantly update your outdoor space, so it’s important to place emphasis on installing a timeless design in your garden where possible.
To ensure you have the best chance of keeping on trend for your latest outdoor renovation, the experts here at ROCCIA take a look at some of the hottest outdoor trends currently out there. We’ve been sure to try and only include trends that will stand the test of time, so you need not worry about your outdoor space becoming old news any time soon!
Utilise Timeless Furnishings
Choosing furniture for your outdoor space can make or break your overall outdoor aesthetic, so it’s absolutely essential that you make the right choice. When choosing garden furniture, our advice is to keep it simple and purchase timeless furnishings where possible. Whilst it can be tempting to go for the ultra-sleek modern option, it can sometimes pay to opt for a more understated piece of furniture that will still be on trend in the years to come.
Rattan garden furniture is a fantastic option and always seems to be on trend each year, so that’s a pretty sound investment. If you’re looking for some more flashy furnishings for your garden, we would definitely recommend a burner as a centrepiece for your outdoor space; depending on your planned overall look, you may want to opt for a log-burner if you are going more rustic, or a sleek bio-ethanol burner for the more modern approach.
Create Large & Expansive Spaces
Bigger is definitely better with more recent exterior home trends – so taking the time to really think about how you can create large and expansive spaces in your garden is definitely worthwhile. Whilst it’s definitely beneficial to have features in your garden, like furniture, flowers, rockeries, firepits and even summerhouses, you need to be sure that you aren’t cluttering your outdoor space too.
If you have the space to create a large outdoor area for your family to enjoy, then this should be high on your agenda when updating your garden. If you have an underutilised garden shed, summerhouse or garage, think of ways that you could make better use of the space, be either extending or even demolishing them.
One of the best ways to stay on trend at the moment is installing timeless tiles around your garden, which actually leads us on nicely to our next tip…
Bigger Means Better For Walkways
Gone are the days of having a thin strip for a walkway, as bigger is most certainly better when it comes to the tiled spaces you can walk on outdoors.
You’ll be glad to know that ROCCIA have you covered when it comes to walkways in your home’s exterior, as we have a huge range of outdoor tiles that are more than suitable for creating a timeless look for your home’s exterior. Depending on what type of look you’re going for, we would recommend using these two for your space:
There’s no denying that marble effect tiles are perfect for use within the home, giving a genuinely grand feel to any property they are installed within; they’re also ideal for use in outdoor spaces too thanks to their unrivalled versatility. Whether you have marble effect tiles already installed in the your indoor space or not, these tiles are perfect for almost any outdoor space and give an almost regal feel to any garden.
If you are looking for a versatile all rounder for your garden walkway, look no further than porcelain outdoor tiles. The biggest selling point of these tiles is the sheer number of colours and styles they come in, so you can be absolutely sure that there will be the right type of tile for your requirements.
Porcelain tiles are extremely robust thanks to their properties, so they are more than capable of standing the test of time, and can cope with high footfall on a daily basis. They’re also extremely easy to clean which is ideal with the British weather being less than predictable all year round.
Whilst it’s fair to say these two are just a couple of our favourites, there are plenty of other styles available on our website and in store, so be sure to take a good look around to find the right tiles for your next project!
