As 2018 is now a distant memory, so too may be the trends including ecological gardens, asymmetrical scheme and wood-effect tiles. But what is set to replace them? Here, we take a look at the potential trends that will sweep the nation in the coming months.
The BBC’s Rich brothers state that smart lighting is likely to come back to the forefront of our plans. Their suggestion is that you position lights up against trees so that it can create an uplight effect and draw your attention to a specific area of the garden.
In 2017 and 2018, Aldi wowed customers by selling inflatable hot tubs. However, this year, you can expect a more permanent addition to gardens. With timber decking providing the perfect platform for this little piece of luxury, sales are expected to continue to soar over the next 12 months.
In Britain, we are continuing to engage in the ‘staying in is the new going out’ craze and home entertaining is now an extremely popular social option. While you might think of a fire pit as being an expensive addition to your space, think again. You can purchase mini pits for as little as £25 and the quirky idea can brighten up any area in which you entertain your guests. The heat that it provides will allow the party gathering to continue well into the night, meaning the cold evenings won’t even be able to put a dampener on your spirits.
For those with a huge garden space, adult treehouses are becoming a popular trend. We’ve all heard of the ‘man cave’ and ‘she shed’, but 2019 is set to be the year of the adult treehouse. We love a getaway, and if you have an area that allows it, why not create a rustic-looking treehouse to escape to?
Grow your own
The homegrown staples including cabbage and tomatoes are still set to be on our list of produce to grow ourselves. However, it’s said that before long we will also be growing our own tea plants and herbs – great for our morning cuppa or gin and tonic!
Wallpaper may sound like an odd outdoor choice, but it is set to become more popular in a bid to brighten up your space. You can stay on trend and match your paper with your surroundings, or you can mimic your personality and dazzle your guests with outlandish prints.
We are starting to find DIY projects to turn our furniture into a shabby chic style. Like wallpapering, creating your own decorations will add your own personal stamp on your space and, with up-cycling becoming more popular in the home in recent years, it’s now time for the garden space to get a makeover.
This year seems to have a lot of potential changes to our garden space. Be sure to keep an eye out and see how many you spot over the course of the year!
