Top 5 Outdoor Furniture Trends of 2022
The weather is warming up in the southern hemisphere and we’re all looking forward to spending more time outdoors. With longer days and balmy nights ahead, now is a good time to take a look at some of the key trends that will be big in 2022. Sustainability, creating a peaceful, low maintenance oasis, edible gardens and tiny spaces are all emerging as key trends.
It might be that social media has had a hand in the rise of these exceptionally photogenic white gardens. Or it might be that they are the epitome of style and create a peaceful oasis. Either way, gardens with a heavy focus on white furniture, décor and flowering plants are a key trend for the coming year. The key idea behind this look is a focus on a single monochromatic color. So if a garden in hues of gray or black is more your speed, rest assured you will still be on trend.
Keep it simple with a low maintenance patio area. The idea is to keep it minimal so you can spend more time relaxing on your patio and less time tending plants and shuffling furniture. Whether you’re a lover of luxe-boho vibes or prefer the clean lines of modern décor, all you need is somewhere comfortable to lounge or sit and some sturdy, low maintenance plants to complete the look.
If you’d like to encourage wildlife visitors to your garden, you’re not alone. Garden design that attracts birds and other local creatures are on the rise. Creating a haven for wildlife means using lots of native plants and ideally, a water feature or bird bath. Your local nursery will be able to guide your plant choices. Now all you need is a space to sit still and enjoy the magic of nature up close.
Raised garden beds are a staple for horticultural aficionados but they seem to be gaining traction more broadly for 2022. They make a practical yet stunning feature in your outdoor space. It’s a strong option if you have a small garden too. Swap in planters to create the same effect and add some pots in to break up the look.
Blur the lines between indoor and outdoor living with a gorgeous outdoor space that flows effortlessly from your interior. Lush up your space with sofas, rugs, cushions and, of course, more plants. As ever, the key to a successful outdoor area is to think about how you want the space to work for you and let that guide your décor decisions.
