Enjoy the outdoors (even when it’s still a bit chilly!)
Nordic countries often have an enviable reputation for being great places to live where people are happy with life, and one of the main reasons why they score so highly in so-called happiness surveys is the fact that enjoying the open air is fundamentally ingrained in their culture.
Why not take a leaf out of their book and embrace the great outdoors by transforming your garden into a living space that you can enjoy any time of the year, whatever the weather!
Temperatures in single figures are no barrier to making the most of your outdoor space, and if you dress for the weather and invest in items such as patio heaters, an outdoor oven that lets you enjoy great BBQs and delicious freshly made handmade pizzas, or maybe a wood-fired hot tub, you really won’t care how chilly it is.
Are you ready for the friluftsliv experience?
The Scandinavians have a passion for nature built into their DNA and they even have a word for describing the joy of open-air living; 'friluftsliv' - a term used to convey the joy and wellbeing they derive from spending time outdoors.
After the year we have had as a result of the pandemic, most of us are more than ready to get outside and enjoy some healthy living space, and whatever size of garden you might have, it is almost certainly big enough to create an outdoor living room that you and your family and friends can enjoy, regardless of what the temperature dial is showing.
Here are some tips on how to replicate that feel-good factor and enjoy your garden at any time of the year!
Keeping everyone happy
If you are looking to create the perfect al fresco event – have a think about a stylish oven to enhance the ambience of your setting and really helps to set the scene for a fantastic outdoor event. As well as creating fantastic food, from BBQ bits or tasty pizzas, the flames generate a cosy, social setting that will be extremely inviting and allow you to instantly forget the weather! We offer a fantastic range of outdoor ovens and BBQ's for you to browse at on our website!
A real centrepiece
In addition to investing in a good quality oven that will keep everyone warm inside and out, you might also want to take another big hint from the Scandinavians about making the most of the great outdoors by installing something like a naked flame wood-fired hot tub or sauna.
A wood-fired hot tub would be a real centrepiece in your garden design, and who could resist the chance to sit under the stars being kept warm by the soothing water lapping around you?
A stylish sauna pod would also be hard to resist, and you'll be able to find a model that suits your space limitations and budget.
Scandinavians don't even consider cold and chilly evenings to be an issue and they certainly won't stop them enjoying the great outdoors. With similar weather to contend with here, there is no reason why you can't also make your garden a warm and inviting place where you can spend some quality time, whatever the weather.
