Making your garden seem like an extension of your living room is a huge trend this summer. It's a really easy look to create too – just pick out some cute cushions (opens in new tab) (the prices at H&M start from just £2.99) to add to your garden furniture and invest in some rugs (opens in new tab) that you can use outside in the summer and bring indoors in the winter. When picking an outdoor rug lookout for hardwearing natural materials such as jute. 

4. Invest in garden furniture you can bring indoors too

Okay okay, it doesn't have to be anything as serious as this but you can quite easily create an 'outdoor kitchen' in your garden. If you have a hot plate or the best gas BBQ use that as the spot to build a mini prep space around, you could have baskets full of veggies, a condiments and marinade station and even a herb garden that you can pick from as you cook. H&M have a whole collection called Outdoor Cooking (opens in new tab) so check out all the lovely bits in there. 

We have loads more outdoor kitchen ideas in our feature so be sure to check that out too.
