More and more of us are realising the value of extending our living space beyond the four walls. Building an outdoor retreat for dining, relaxing and entertaining has seen an increase in the demand for furniture and furnishings that walk the line between a homey indoor feel and practical outdoor living. British online homeware, DIY and garden retailer, VonHaus, has a brand new outdoor collection with everything you need to complete your dream outdoor space. From pergolas to barbecues, furniture to fire pits, this summer VonHaus has what you need to create your perfect outdoor retreat.
 
The British weather isn’t something we can rely on and your garden should be somewhere you can unwind as well as entertain – whatever the weather. The VonHaus Grey LED Parasol is the perfect solution, with an easily adjustable tilting mechanism the parasol can be moved into different positions to suit you, the weather and your garden. It also has LED lights inside to create an ambient setting for an evening of relaxation (Available online May). The VonHaus 3m x 2m Pergola is suited to those with bigger spaces, with an adjustable canopy it can be open or closed to suit the unpredictable British weather.

If you’re someone who loves to entertain, there is no better way to do so than an alfresco kitchen. Already a popular trend for homes in sunnier climates, outdoor kitchens are set to be the next big thing here in the UK. Whatever your space, start with a barbecue and build outwards.

The VonHaus Modular Gas Outdoor Kitchen Barbecue comes in 3 modular sections each one designed with a specific purpose in mind. The middle unit is the 4 burner BBQ itself, while a drinks trolley with an integrated ice bucket will sit to one side, and a food prep station with a removable tray will sit to the other. With lots of additional features, this really is the kind of barbecue that makes hosting easy and enjoyable.

For those who want something simpler to just take care of the cooking, the American Style Barbecue Grill has all the essentials for a successful feast – a large grilling area, adjustable charcoal tray, temperature gauge, and an integrated smoker. 

When it comes to cooler evenings the fire pit is a garden essential, it creates a cosy and warm space, somewhere family and friends can gather round. The timeless design of the Round MgO Fire Pit, in a stone grey concrete finish will add a touch of luxury to your garden. While the Chamfered Edge Fire Pit will add a contemporary feel. A great value choice is the 3 in 1 Fire Pit, with a table, fire pit and barbecue in one easily convertible unit. Whether you want to grill a feast, relax by the fire or roast marshmallows, your summer should be spent surrounded by loved ones. 

The seating area is a focal point that brings everyone together in any outdoor space. The corner sofa is top of the list for outdoor furniture and is perfect for those who want to maximise space. The VonHaus 9 Seater Rattan Corner Dining Set features weather-resistant wood effect material, showerproof cushions and plenty of space. For extra seating that compliments the centrepiece, rattan wicker style furniture is ideal if you want to mix things up with a bohemian touch. The Rattan Sofa and Table Set with two single chairs, a two-seater compact sofa and a glass-top coffee table is the ultimate stylish addition to finish off your outdoor space. While the Sage Green Adirondack Chair is that staple garden piece that will always be on trend. (Available online April)

An outdoor space wouldn’t be complete without the finishing touches like cushions, mirrors and hammocks, so the collection features a selection of these too. And last but not least, for all those bohemian lovers, there’s the Grey Hanging Chair. When you’re in need of some time to unwind this will be your go-to cosy spot. Its versatility means it can be a centrepiece as well as a hidden gem in the corner of the garden to escape to.
