Create a Luxe Outdoor Dining Space
Read our top 5 tips for creating the ultimate luxe outdoor dining space.
A versatile outdoor space is essential for our temperamental climate – having a place in your garden to relax and make the most of those glorious days and balmy nights adds quality to our lives and intrinsic value to our homes.
A well maintained and aspirational garden can add a whopping 20% to the value of your home – but there’s no need to fear if you’re not exactly blessed with green thumbs. The key is low maintenance, as a garden which looks like it needs a lot of upkeep can put people off.

1 | Low Maintenance
Gor for fuss free but high-impact planting – look for drought tolerant plants to add to the carefree vibe.
2 | Say goodbye to decking
Update your space and invest in a well designed paved terrace, it lasts far longer than wooden decking and makes the space feel much more contemporary.
3 | Cook in style
Forget the disposable BBQ! Think outdoor pizza oven and fireplace – if you’re feeling adventurous you can even build your own, search Youtube for tutorials.
4 | Make a statement with solid wood furniture
Choose from Indigo’s unique collection of solid oak outdoor furniture which includes tables, benches and side tables.
5 | Light it up
Well placed lighting looks enticing from indoors and out, creating a new dimension to your outdoor space.
Enticing outdoor dining spaces incorporate outdoor kitchen areas, built in BBQ’s, pizza ovens and even outdoor fireplaces which can extend the usability of the garden as the nights drop a little chiller.
Solid wood outdoor furniture makes the space comfortable and welcoming with plenty of space for all of the family and any impromptu guests.
Wooden decking is starting to feel a bit old-hat now and the maintenance involved each year to get it looking top-notch again can outweigh the initial investment. A well-designed terrace which is close to your kitchen can extend your living space, invest in good quality paving which will last for many years and won’t become slippery like wooden decking can. Lighting is also essential to create a relaxed ambience and when done well will illuminate your planting, creating another dimension in your garden as the night falls.
