Turn your outdoor pool area into a holiday retreat

With travel looking to be off the cards for a while, switch your sights into holidaying in your own backyard by giving your pool area an update. The team at Jati Furniture lends some ideas on where to get started.

If you’re lucky enough to have a pool in your backyard, you need to make the most of your garden design, especially in preparation for the upcoming warmer season.

Giving your outdoor patio a makeover can often seem pretty daunting, but with a few simple changes (and exciting furniture purchases), you’ll have an outdoor patio area designed to impress all the interior and architectural lovers out there.

We’re full of patio ideas that will turn your outdoor space into a retreat so inviting that you’ll mistake it for a Spanish villa or a luxurious beachside resort.

There’s nothing like injecting a bit of European or Balinese summer into your garden to refresh the space.


Luckily, you don’t need to go overboard with landscaping when it comes to making your pool look inviting and luxurious. All you need to do is add a few Mediterranean-style plants to a plain pool area. From Italian cypresses to agaves, investing in this type of greenery adds a rustic and picturesque vibe to your garden design, and the combination of clear blue water, the sun and the trees will rival the holiday homes of the Greek Islands.

Brighten up

A simple and affordable way to make your pool area look even more summery is by adding vibrant and colourful cushions and throws. We’re talking yellows, oranges, and nautical striped accent pieces. Once you’ve chosen your summer palette, team with a decorative bench featuring intricate joinery – It screams out ultimate holiday villa vibes.

Lazing and lounging

When it comes to outdoor patio ideas, sometimes there’s just no need to fix what isn’t broken! Summer means lounging around the pool, with a book (or a cocktail!). You can’t go wrong with sun loungers, especially ones from Jati that have been designed with a specific focus on comfort and style. With furniture that’s sleek and sophisticated, it’s time to relish in the sun without compromising on comfort.

Embracing the shade

Of course, you can take advantage of the sun to a certain extent, but having a shaded area is vital to a holiday home, as it should be within your own home! Transport yourself and your guests to Tuscany by positioning some umbrellas where your garden gets the most shade. Umbrellas in hues of nudes and beige work well with contemporary teak coffee tables.

Whether your garden design features a small or large pool and patio area, there are so many small changes you can make that will provide a luxurious feel to your space without having to dive into a big renovation. Bring on summer!
