5 Brilliant Outdoor Furniture Ideas for February
Brrrr! With weather like this, heading out into the garden might be the last thing on your mind.
But with a few clever garden accessories, you can transform your outdoor space into a cosy haven – all year round. So, there’s no need to shiver through February or abandon your garden until spring. Instead, discover these five fun furniture ideas to stay toasty warm…
1. A Garden Igloo
If you’ve been thinking about a conservatory, the cost might make you think twice. So if you’re looking for a more affordable way to add another room to your home, consider a garden igloo instead. Cosy and stylish, their dome-like structure will keep you warm throughout winter and beyond.
Take a look at the PVC igloo by Astreea (below). With a protective seal, you can keep those chilly February winds firmly locked outside – while you unwind with a cuppa or a glass of vino.
Complete with electrical and lighting systems, you can make your igloo extra cosy with all your creature comforts. Whether you’re curled up by your electric heater for extra warmth or dangling fairy lights around the dome, you can just plug in and go.
2. A Garden Pod
This February, say no to big nights out – and say yes to the big night in. Instead of braving the freezing weather, keep the party at home inside your own garden pod. With plenty of space for socialising, you can invite your pals round for the most exclusive night in.
With lockable doors and cushioned seats, garden pods are ideal for entertaining during the winter months. And once your guests head home, it’s the perfect space to lounge and unwind away from the day-to-day chaos of family life. Put your feet up and enjoy some well-deserved ‘you’ time!
The Grande Deluxe Chic pod from Ornate Garden (below) is here to make your winter get-togethers cosier than ever. With space for up to 12 guests to sit comfortably, you can be the host with the most. Want to make it a night to remember? Then turn up the music with Bluetooth audio connection and create a party vibe with ambient interior lighting.
3. An Outdoor Fireplace
An outdoor fireplace is the must-have garden accessory this February.
If anything can coax you outdoors, the heat of your very own firepit should do it! With a stylish garden fireplace, you can keep warm during the coldest of winter evenings. It’s the cosiest spot to enjoy a catch-up with friends.
With the Maze Rattan range, you can unwind on padded seating and bask in the warmth of a built-in gas fire. The corner dining set (bottom left) is ideal for gatherings – up to ten guests can sit around the table and chat around the flames. Use the table as a lazy susan in the day, then uncover it to reveal a stylish fire pit by night.
Or, if you’ve already got your garden seating sorted, why not get a standalone fire pit? With the Maze Rattan gas fire pit (below right), you can enjoy calming flames in the flick of a switch.
If you’d rather warm up next to a traditional fire, consider a fire bowl instead. It’s the simplest way to enjoy the pleasure of a hearty fire, and you’ll feel real heat bouncing off the flames.
With the fire bowl from Cook King (below), you can enjoy the soothing sound of crackling flames. Whether you’re toasting marshmallows or singing songs, it’s easy to throw it back to campfire days. Simply grab your kindling from the handy log store below, throw it on the flames, and enjoy ambient heat all night long.
4. A Heat Lamp
Too cold to head outdoors? Not any more: banish chattering teeth this February with a heat lamp.
With a powerful heat lamp, you can stay warm on the coldest of winter evenings. As you sit under Infrared heat of up to 2850 Watts, you won’t even notice as the weather cools down.
The freestanding patio heater by Heatsail (below) radiates tropical heat up to a 5-metre radius. So on frosty evenings, you can keep all your loved ones toasty warm while you catch up outdoors. You can even add Bluetooth speakers to really get the party started!
5. A Pizza Oven
Who says you should save al fresco dining for summer?
An authentic wood-fired pizza tastes just as scrummy all year round. And when you’re eating your homemade pizza under the toasty warmth of your heat lamp or near your fire pit, you’ll feel like summer’s arrived early.
So, discover handmade pizza made simple with the Ooni range. With the wood and charcoal-fired pizza oven (below), you can choose whether you’d like to fire or smoke your pizza – both taste great!
Thanks to its 500-degree heat, you can cook your pizza in a matter of seconds. It’s ideal for a quick and delicious dinner with friends. What better way to brighten a dull February night?
