Outdoor space is a fantastic feature for any property and it’s also one of the most versatile. Gardens are great for letting children run off steam, al fresco dining and bringing the “outside in” is becoming more and more popular.

Outdoor furniture has come a long way since the days of plastic sun loungers and uncomfortable folding chairs.  One of the most popular outdoor products is Synthetic Rattan seating with cushions on top of hard-wearing yet beautifully stylish bases. Most importantly, the base units are completely waterproof so should the heavens decide to open you can simply remove the cushions and retreat indoors.

Don’t forget to give your outside space some personal touches too with cushions, candles and beautiful bowls will all help create a beautiful garden and best of all, these items can be rounded up quickly and tucked inside should the weather turn nasty.

There are plenty of options to stay warm if the weather cools in Manchester, Lancashire and Cheshire. A fire pit provides warmth as well as a central focal point. Plus they are perfect if you fancy some alfresco dining in the form of roasted marshmallows.

For illumination, LED lights add a warm glow in the evening.  Opt for battery operated or solar-powered lights so there is no need to worry about ugly extension leads causing a potential trip hazard.

Opening your living space up is achieved by maybe installing large patio doors which blend the outdoors with your home’s interior, and they’re a simple option that’s in tune with today’s trend for open-plan living.  You’ll be surprised at how this simple access to the outside can transform your connection with the garden.

Bi-folding doors is another option that can achieve the same concept, with their sleek and space saving nature, they allow you flexibility of where you position your furniture.  A dining table positioned right in front of the window allows you to enjoy an al fresco dining experience.

IDC – Aluminium Door, Window and Shop Front Specialist in the North West

1IDC is a Manchester based company specialising in the manufacture and installation of aluminium framed doors and windows. We work in the commercial, industrial and domestic sectors, creating eye-catching entrances and innovative design solutions.

Aluminium is the ideal material for door and window frames. It is stronger and more versatile than conventional UPVC, allowing it to be used in increasingly imaginative ways. Aluminium is the perfect choice for shop fronts. Slimline aluminium profiles keep the focus away from the frames and on the shop window. IDC supply and maintain aluminium shop fronts, commercial entrances and reception areas. We manufacture and install internal and external curtain walls. IDC have created aluminium framed glazing for shopping centres and supermarkets all over the UK.

Aluminium bifold doors first made their mark in the hotel and restaurant industries but in recent years bifold doors have become increasingly popular in the home. The intrinsic strength and security of aluminium means that aluminium bifold doors can create a 90% opening that is absolutely flush to the floor. Little wonder that IDC bifold doors are regularly installed to give immediate access to patios, gardens and outdoors spaces.

Of course the main rival to aluminium bifold doors – for both domestic and commercial installation – are aluminium sliding doors. IDC design, manufacture and install aluminium sliding doors in a range of RAL colours that are as thermally efficient as they are elegant.
