'Low maintenance' garden furniture sets are best

Outdoor features, such as tables, chairs or any soft furnishings should also blend well with the furniture already in your home, the blog advised.

Writing for the Independent recently, Kate Watson-Smyth suggested that you shouldn't neglect the garden if you're spending a few thousand pounds renovating the house.

If you have the money, she recommended that it could be worth splashing out on a top quality garden furniture set that will stand the test of time.  ADNFCR-3488-ID-800017265-ADNFCR
