Preparing your outdoor space for summer requires careful planning, thoughtful design, and choosing the perfect outdoor furniture to complete the look.

Here's a step-by-step guide on how to achieve this, with a focus on using solutions from some of our new Spanish brands, Gandia Blasco, Diabla, and GAN:

1. Assess your outdoor space 

Evaluate the available space in your outdoor area. Consider the dimensions, layout, and architectural features that may influence your furniture choices.

Take note of areas that have more sunlight or shade to help determine the most suitable furniture placement.

2. Define your needs and preferences

 Determine how you intend to use your outdoor space during the summer. Do you need an alfresco dining area? Or a cosy lounge space, or a combination of both? Understanding your requirements will guide you in selecting the right furniture pieces and how they can co-exist.

4. Choose durable and weather-resistant materials

 Since outdoor furniture will be exposed to the elements, selecting materials that can withstand the weather is essential. Gandia Blasco, Diabla and GAN often use materials like teak, aluminium, stainless steel, synthetic wicker and outdoor-rated fabrics, known for their durability and weather resistance.

5. Consider comfort and functionality

 Comfort is critical when selecting outdoor furniture. Look for ergonomic designs with cushions or padding to ensure a pleasant seating experience. Additionally, consider the functionality of the furniture, such as stackable chairs for easy storage or extendable tables for accommodating more guests.

6. Mix and match

 Feel free to combine furniture from the three brands to create a unique and personalised outdoor space. Incorporating various styles and materials can add depth and personality to your outdoor area.

7. Optimise space with multifunctional pieces

 Consider multifunctional furniture if you have a small outdoor area. For example, some ottomans can be used as side tables, coffee tables, or storage benches for seating. This approach maximises space while providing versatility.

9. Consider storage and protection

 Invest in outdoor furniture covers or storage solutions to protect your furniture during harsh weather conditions or when unused. Proper storage can extend the lifespan of your furniture and keep it looking new for many summers to come.

10. Prioritise quality

 Investing in high-quality outdoor furniture from Gandia Blasco, Diabla and GAN ensures that your pieces will last for years and maintain their beauty despite exposure to the elements.
