With temperatures beginning to drop and the arrival of wetter weather, now is the time to do those jobs that will see your home and garden throughout the season. Keeping the garden tidy as the leaves begin to fall. We say goodbye to furniture, cover it up and store away cushions until next spring.
Autumn brings added layers. Coats and scarves, school bags and sports kits, wet wellies and muddy boots. Feel calm and collected, not overwhelmed by a mountain of "stuff" now you'll be spending more time indoors. Elevate your storage space, think linear and create a sense of order.
We've picked out top 5 products for getting your home and garden autumn ready.
To be kept by the back door or in the porch, our Moreton Outdoor Storage Box is perfect for storing garden clutter, seat pads or cushions. The galvanised sheet metal roof is slanted for rain to drain off easily keeping contents dry and secure. Available in Small and Large sizes, we also have our Aldsworth version if you prefer a more natural finish.
The next step is to stock pile your logs ready for keeping warm indoors. Another member of our new Moreton collection, the Cross Log Store is a more unique way to display freshly cut logs and kindling. It could even be used indoors too for a striking feature in the living room or hallway.
As the darker nights draw closer your outdoor lighting needs to be ready. To light up pathways or beside the front door. One of our newest outdoor lights the Napier benefits from being simple and clean in design with open sides (so less cleaning of glass). We also love it used with our Squirrel Cage bulb.
Once back in the warm start in the hallway with simple yet effective storage that has multiple uses like our Chilson Console Table. Lower shelf storage for shoes and baskets, tabletop storage for post, keys, a lamp and a vase of beautiful blooms.
You've got to have somewhere to put all those freshly cut logs stored neatly outside. Bring that autumnal warmth into storage. Handmade from Rattan, our Norton Baskets with their soft tones mixing oranges and browns are an easy way to get into autumn without going pumpkin crazy. They're also perfect for storing cushions, blankets, toys (or presents come December).
