4 top tips for getting your venue’s outdoor space summer-ready

Think of all the special occasions we have to look forward to this summer…

The Jubilee Bank Holiday, Father’s Day, weddings, sporting events… all those long, light nights and after-work social outings… and now have a think about your outdoor space: is it ready for those events?

Not to worry if it isn’t; the team at Eclipse have you covered with a bunch of ‘summerspiration’ top tips below – alongside our stunning outdoor furniture seating sets with super-quick delivery!

None of us want to be at home anymore, particularly if there is an inviting outdoor space with some warm summer weather to enjoy, so we’re positive that you’re going to enjoy extremely busy outdoor areas this summer – which means that the time to start preparing for the crowds is now!

Read on to discover our top tips for getting your venue’s outdoor space summer-ready:

1. Have a good clear-up

The first place to begin is with a good clear-up – an outdoor clean, if you like! Rope in your team or hire a gardener to clear any overgrown areas, get rid of any broken items or rubbish, pull up all the weeds and pressure-wash your patios to make sure everything looks and feels fresh – and is safe, of course!

2. Give your outdoor area a revamp

Apply a fresh lick of paint, some colourful and fragrant planters, heating sources for cooler evenings and (most-importantly) invest in some fresh, new outdoor furniture seating sets – such the iconic Air Dining Set.

You might think your current furniture will do, but your guests may not agree! Neglecting your premises and giving the impression of an unloved outdoor area won’t promote the look and feel of your business in a good way.

Your guests want a clean and attractive eating and drinking space; so, if it’s not Insta-friendly, it’s got to go!

3. Consider a “summer”-themed menu

Now, how do you intend to celebrate summer with your menu? What al fresco events do you have planned? How about bottomless brunch, beer tasting for Father’s Day, a summer-inspired BBQ or family fun day? Or go all out with a mini festival!

Make sure your furniture reflects your menu or event, too; for example, round 8-seater picnic tables are a great option for everyone to see each other, whilst stackable chairs mean that people can move around easily for a truly sociable occasion.

4. Consider current design trends

Finally, this year’s exterior design trends are all about detail. You can go all out on cushions, artwork, candles, plants and lights. Think living walls, water features, magical archways, lounge areas and mirrors.

It’s not too late to get into gear and have your outdoor area summer-ready within a matter of days. But don’t just take our word for it – check out what this kind bar owner had to say about
