Create a cornerReplicate the ever-popular L-shaped living room sofa with an outdoor version in rattan, wood or plastic. This one has plenty of room for a couple of people to sprawl out on, but can double up as sociable seating when friends come over.

Surround your seatingFor a contemporary look, plant up your containers with flowers in the same colour scheme. This square seating area is surrounded by sleek, lead-look planters filled with purples and greens. Even though the colour palette is minimal, the scented lavender and pretty campanula add plenty of depth and interest to the space.

Choose five-star comfortThe ‘outdoor room’ concept is increasingly a thing in gardens, and it’s easy to see why. It’s all about practicality but also comfort, so look for cushioned seating that offers sofa-level squishiness.

Keep your colour palette simpleWhen space is tight, a restricted colour and planting palette will really come into its own, creating drama and impact. The repetition of just two types of plant in neat raised planters, as seen here, arguably creates much more impact than a bigger mix of plants would provide. Combined with a luxurious corner sofa, comfy armchair and a parasol for sunny days, this terrace has luxury tied up. See 8 winning patio ideas to transform your garden
