Children love nothing better than running around outside, so make your exterior an entertaining and creative space for them.

Paint fences, playhouses, decking and planters in bright colours and interesting shapes to stimulate children's senses. Section off part of the garden so they can grow their own plants or herbs – laying old railway sleepers is a great way to mark out areas for little ones.

Use hardwearing waterproof exterior paints in places that will see lots of rough and tumble.

 

How to create a teen den:

  • Paint a feature wall inside your shed by applying bold lines: horizontals will increase the sense of space and verticals make the ceiling appear higher.
  • Measure and divide the wall, starting in the corner that’s least seen - tape out so every other stripe is outlined and go over the edges. Remove when dry.
  • Add a decorative sign, simple beanbags and battery-operated lighting to create a laid-back space for hobbies and relaxing.
