Maximizing Your Outdoor Space

Summer is here and there’s nothing we Maltese enjoy more than taking advantage of our 300 days of sunshine. Outdoor spaces shouldn’t be neglected as they are an extension of our indoor spaces and provide the perfect place for entertaining and relaxing.

Stocking a range of home accessories and some of the best garden furniture Malta has to offer, our Petrolea team would like to share a few ways how you can transform your outdoor space, with just a few key changes that will add function and style, no matter its size.

  • Entertaining Area

Outdoor spaces are meant to be used and enjoyed, and choosing the right outdoor furniture will turn a redundant space into something full of life and personality. As an entertainment hub, your outdoor space needs a comfortable place for guests to eat and socialise. At Petrolea, we stock extendable tables, folding furniture enables you to transform your space in just a matter of minutes and create extra room when it’s not in use.

Some of our table models even come with a parasol hole where you can place your umbrella to stay in the shade during those particularly sunny days!

  • Relaxation

Get your suntan on or grab a book and enjoy the outdoors without having to leave your home! Because what screams relaxation better than a couple of sun loungers and a swing set?

If you have a large outdoor space, you can separate the relaxing and eating areas with planters, different flooring or decking, or with a low wall or wooden fence. This can give a feeling of intimacy and enclosure.

  • Décor

Your outdoor space is not complete without some décor. One way to keep things interesting outdoors is to incorporate plants and garden decorations, in a variety of heights, from ground-level to those that will draw the eye upwards. Just make sure you do your research on where it is best to place your plants so they can thrive!

No matter how big or small your outdoor space is, you always need some sort of lighting to give that finishing touch to your home’s exterior. Lanterns and other decorative lighting add ambiance to your outdoor space and can easily be coordinated with any design.

  • Special Touches

When it comes down to it, it is really the finishing touches that best inject individuality into any space, the outdoors being no exception. Use decorative items such as colorful glasses and plates, candles, planters, cushions, and even stone features to create the ambiance you are going for.

When it comes down to it, the secret to making whatever outdoor area you have, work for you, is to make the best use of the space and inject your personality into it. Time to invite your friends over and get nibbling on snacks and sipping on your favorite drinks! At our Petrolea showroom, we offer a range of BBQs, table top cookers, gas burners, tables and chairs, kitchenware, outdoor cabinets for storage and much more!
