THE bank holiday weekend is set to be a scorcher and with more of us spending time in our gardens right now, it’s the perfect time to give yours a makeover.
If you’re looking for somewhere comfy to sit, or a new garden chair and table set to brighten up your outdoor space, we have compiled our favourites available now.
As the weather is so warm, if you’re lucky enough to have a garden you’ll probably be eating in it a lot more, and there’s a huge-range of dining sets available to buy.
Whether it’s just you, or you and your family, there’s sets to suit any size and a whole host of other furniture items to jazz up your garden.
So if your garden furniture is looking a little tired, here we’ve picked out a selection of our favourite items to buy.
But remember before you pick anything, always check to see if you can find it cheaper elsewhere.
Using a tool such as Google shopping is a good way to check the price and to make sure you’re not getting ripped off.
Also factor in delivery costs, and be aware that while more shops are now open, most have strict rules in place on social distancing.
Tarno table and chairs set, £28 from Ikea (buy now)
This is one of the cheapest chair and table sets we could find, from Ikea.
It’s also great for space saving as you can fold it away. It costs £28 if you have an Ikea family membership (which is free) or £35 if not.
Home delivery costs start at £3.95.
Helsinki bronze garden set – from Dunelm for £39 (buy now)
This garden set from Dunelm is £39 and comes with a table and two foldaway chairs.
It’s small so will fit into even tiny outdoor spaces and can easily be stored away when you don’t need it.
Delivery is £9.95, but if you spend over £49 it’s free. You can also buy via the click and collect service.
Segrest four-seater dining set, £62 from Wayfair (buy now)
For families and those who need a little more space, this dining set is a good option.
It’s actually a camping set but we think the silver bench and chair set would work well in a garden, especially as we can’t go on holiday right now.
It can be folded away when you’re not using it too. There’s free delivery as it’s over £40.
Four seater metal patio set – from Argos for £70 (buy now)
If you’re looking for a dining set so all the family can eat outdoors, this one is available to order from Argos.
It’s silver, so will match any garden design, and the chairs can be folded away when you’re not using them.
Home delivery is £3.95 or you can pick up at an Argos store within a Sainsbury’s branch.
Charles Bentley folding dining set, £89 from Dunelm (buy now)
If you’re looking for a compact set which can be packed away, this from Dunelm is £89.
The set is small and therefore perfect no matter how big your outdoor space.
Delivery is £9.95 but free with this as it’s over £49.
Bright four-seater bistro set – £90 from Argos (buy now)
For a splash of colour, look no further than this four-piece dining set from Argos.
The sunny yellow set is perfect for alfresco dining and you can fold it all away when you’re not using it.
It costs £90 from Argos and home delivery is £3.95.
Ipanema four-seater sofa set in coral, £145 from Argos (buy now)
This set from Argos is perfect for sitting outside and enjoying the hot weather.
The seats are made with rattan so they’re a little more comfy than a metal set.
It’s £134.99 at the moment, reduced from £180. Home delivery is £3.95 or you can click and collect for free from a Sainsbury’s store.
From solar panels to water features, we’ve also rounded up the best ways to update your garden for under £100.
Some stores have begun reopening now, including Dunelm and Furniture Village.
If you’re on the look out for a hot tub, we’ve rounded up where to get one for this weekend.
