3 ways to make the most of your outside space

Whether you’ve got a small balcony, a patio area or a huge expanse of garden, it’s important to make the most of your outside space. Take a look at our Top 3 tips to enhance one of your property’s major selling points:

Use mirrors:

If you’ve only got a small outside area then the appropriate use of mirrors is a great trick to enhance the feeling of space. You could use one feature mirror or maybe a few, well-placed smaller mirrors on garden walls and fencing.

Introduce some greenery:

Use hardy, typically Cornish plants in stylish, weather-wearing pots to give your outside space its own personality. The herbaceous Fascicularia pitcairniifolia is a lovely looking and hardy plant perfect for brightening up your outside area.

Create outdoor storage space:

If your property is close to the beach and you have a reasonable amount of outside space, try to accommodate guests by providing a basic outdoor shower, wetsuit hanging area or storage for boards, windbreaks, buckets and spades. As well as displaying your attention to detail, having this storage space will also stop guests trawling sea and sand through your property.
