Summer living: making the most of your outdoor space

Summer has finally shown its face here in the UK, reminding us just how enjoyable outdoor living can really be. Smoothing the transition from indoor to outdoor space can be a wonderful way to make the most of sunny days, so read on for a few bright ideas.

Transform your townhouse with a Juliet balcony

If, like many new-build townhouses, your home is small of footprint and tall of stature, you can still bring the outdoors in; a bespoke Juliet balcony can be a great way to open up a bedroom or upstairs lounge. Renowned for their sleek design, our Juliet balconies are easy to install and manufactured from the highest quality materials, including high grade stainless steel and toughened, laminated glass.

A Juliet balcony is the perfect solution for homes with small or no gardens – open up one of your upstairs rooms to a green space or leafy street, and enjoy the fresh air and warmth of summer.

Live the high life with a raised decking area

For homes with outdoor space, raised decking finished with a chic frameless glass balustrade provides an elegant space for al fresco dining, barbecues and summer evening socialising. Look out over uninterrupted views, maximise the light, and rise above a tiered, low-lying or shady garden, safe in the knowledge that our glass balustrades systems deliver incomparable style and safety especially when paired with our composite decking solutions.

The only limit is your imagination – take a look at how we transformed this client’s garden with multi-level decking and a frameless glass balustrade for more inspiration.

Split your outdoor space and transform your garden

We don’t think twice about sectioning off our indoor space for different uses – lounge, diner, kitchen, bedrooms – so why not do the same with our gardens? While our frameless garden balustrades provide a seamless boundary in the outdoors, our framed glass balustrades offer a more defined barrier – ideal for dividing two distinct elements in one outdoor space.

Why not consider a sophisticated decking area for the grown-ups and a lawn where the children can play? A framed glass balustrade allows you to cordon off a wonderful, adult space while keeping a close eye the smaller residents of your home!

Decking delights

There’s much to recommend when it comes to decking: it levels outdoor space, proving a safe and comfortable area to sit and relax. It’s ideal for older homeowners and those with limited mobility – not only does it increase accessibility, it requires far less care than a lawn or bedded area.

Our range of composite decking has been specially created to bring together all the elements you could want for outdoor flooring. We’ve taken into account aesthetics, sustainability, value for money and longevity, meaning that whatever kind of composite decking you’re looking for, we’ve got something that will suit.
