For many people in the UK, the 19th of July signals the end of all coronavirus restrictions. In England, face coverings are no longer mandatory, social distancing is no longer required and indoor & outdoor gatherings can be as big as you please.

 

While many people are glad to see the back of the COVID-19 restrictions, a lot of people are still very anxious about the return to a more 'normal' way of living. To answer the question, do we still have to meet outdoors? the answer is no, wherever you live in the UK you can now meet with people indoors or in public places like pubs and restaurants if you wish. The exact number of people you can meet with depends on where you live (we'll get into this in more detail later).

Winter is coming! Which means it's time to start thinking about ways to keep warm in your garden. Nowadays, there are plenty of things you can do to stay warm outside so you don't have to abandon your garden until spring. With a SunSpace, you can enjoy the outdoors whatever the weather.

Insulated Glass Rooms

If you want to make more use of your garden during winter, we'd highly recommend taking a look at our insulated glass garden rooms. The Solarlux Wintergarden is designed to retain as much heat as possible so that you can relax and enjoy your garden surroundings without feeling like you're sat out in the cold.

 

Other non-insulated garden rooms have a tendency to get a little chilly through autumn and winter, so these insulated glass rooms are a perfect alternative. This style of sunroom acts effectively as an extension to your living space, meaning you can dine, relax and enjoy your garden while keeping warm.

Add Heating

Some garden designs feature verandas and awnings, which are great for keeping the rain off but aren't so great for retaining heat. Don't worry though, there are accessories you can add to your garden to help you keep warm. For example, outdoor heaters! 

 

Here at SunSpaces, we offer a wide range of outdoor heaters that can be used with all our Sunrooms except, Horizon, Dynamic and Solarlux Wintergarden. We know that staying warm in your garden is important, especially at this time of year, which is why we offer outdoor heaters with different features and at different price points. 

 

All of our outdoor heaters are controlled via remote control, making them easy to operate and adjust as required. We even offer a garden heater with a built-in Bluetooth speaker so you can have your favourite tunes blaring while you stay warm in your garden.

Back to Basics

If all else fails, there's no harm in going back to basics and heading into the garden with your coat, a blanket and a hot drink in hand. Whether you're using your garden for a spot of stargazing or a late afternoon BBQ, you really can't beat getting cosy to stay warm in the garden.

 

While we don't recommend having a fire pit inside your garden room or directly under your veranda or awning, there's no harm in having one elsewhere in your garden. Fire pits are a great source of heat, they're charming and they're perfect for roasting marshmallows... and who doesn't love roasted marshmallows?

 

We hope that these tips will help you stay warm in the garden whether you have a SunSpace or not! Of course, if you're interested in adding an insulated garden room, a veranda or an awning to your garden this autumn/winter, don't hesitate to get in touch - 01727 845 788.

 

With 2020 coming to an end (thankfully), we can finally start to look forward to 2021 in hope that it brings much more joy than the previous year. For many, this year has been a real struggle due to the sheer amount of time that we have been forced to spend indoors. But for some, this has provided new opportunities and new hobbies that they may have never indulged in before, such as gardening or simply spending more time in their outdoor space.

 

With that said, this blog looks at the garden trends that are set to be a hit in 2021, inspired by the activities and noises on Instagram, a place where many garden and outdoor lovers go to share their experiences, advice and ideas.

 

So, without further ado, let's take a look at the biggest garden trends that are set to take 2021 by storm...

Young children learning outdoors

 

The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic is still ongoing, and in accordance with the UK government's current guidelines, most children are currently staying home from school. Critical workers may still take their children to school or a childcare provider, but all other parents are having to look after their children themselves.

 

As a result, many children are now being homeschooled for the first time in their lives. Homeschooling has its disadvantages - most parents have no formal teacher training, and many children will miss be missing their friends right now - but here's one indisputable benefit of homeschooling: it gives kids an opportunity to do their learning outside instead of spending all day cooped up in a classroom.

 

If the weather's nice and you're lucky enough to have an outdoor space to call your own, why not mix up your homeschooling timetable and have some - or even all! - of your lessons out in the garden?
