Now you have your patio canopy, it’s time to show it off.

We all grow up with dreams of what our perfect garden would look like, did yours include a Jacuzzi or your very own bar? Or a garden filled with trickling fountains and secret hideaways?

We’ve collected together a wish list of 5 of the best additions for your patio canopy. So whether you’ve dreamt of enjoying your very own home brew, or dream of relaxing in your hot tub with a gripping page-turner, this list will have something for you!


#1 Hot Tub

Is there anything better than relaxing in your private hot tub after a long day at work? Hot tub’s come in all different shapes and sizes, and with a variety of features and designs to choose from, you can be sure to find the right fit for you and your patio canopy.

Hot tubs are perfect for a night of steamy relaxation under the stars. Share a romantic night in with a loved one, or put on your favourite tunes, get out the bubbly and enjoy a great night in with friends! (Is there a more perfect setting for a girl’s night in?).


#2 A Swing Seat

Treat your patio canopy as an extra lounging space within your home and not just an addition to your garden. With a swing seat, you can create your very own sanctuary to enjoy the relaxing surroundings of your garden. A timeless piece of garden furniture that all the family can enjoy.

A swing seat is a modern statement piece of garden furniture that adds fun, and reflects elegance in your garden. Swing sweats can either hang through the roof or be free standing. Adding a real element of relaxation, and making a blissful spot to read, listen to music, or simply enjoy being outside with nature.

If you ask me, it’s the best seat in the house.

At 123v PLC we have a variety of canopies and verandas in various designs and sizes, so you can find the perfect patio canopy to fit with your swing seat design.


#3 Your Very Own Bar

Enjoy endless fun on weekends with friends and family under your patio canopy with your very own bar. There are many options to consider when installing a bar, but adding a bit of jazz to your patio canopy doesn’t have to break the bank. There are many ways to create your own bar and for it not to cost a fortune!

But, a bar wouldn’t truly be a bar unless there is music, so look out for canopy designs which allow you to add customisable features, such as docking systems and speakers. With the perfect patio canopy to fit the bar design of your choice, you will be hosting the very best garden parties in your neighbourhood!


#4 A Water Feature


Installing a water feature under your canopy creates a tranquil and welcoming environment to come home to after a stressful day. They are a great way to add beauty to your home, welcome guests, and bring the sounds of nature right to your doorstep.

It is widely known that water features act as a stress relief by creating a soothing environment. The sound of water promotes a sense of calm, reducing the sound of unpleasant noises from the surrounding areas. Say goodbye and good riddance to a stressful day by enjoying the peaceful experience of a water feature under your patio canopy.

If you ask me, there isn’t anything better than knowing your very own swing seat and water feature are waiting for you under your patio canopy after a long day at work.


#5 Outdoor Shower



Have you ever showered outside? Maybe on holiday, or at the beach? But what about in good ole’ Blighty? With the classical temperamental English weather, I will guess not!

But there is something exhilarating and playful about showering outside, it can be fun yet cosy, providing comfort and a sense of freedom. So with a patio canopy in your garden, is there a more suited opportunity to install your very own outdoor shower?

An outdoor shower is a great way to take advantage of the privacy and freedom of your patio canopy. Making an outdoor shower a fantastic yet unusual addition to your patio canopy. However, it doesn’t need to look out of place as there are lots of ways to make your outdoor shower part of the house. By complementing the design of the shower with your canopy, you can easily create a cosy, yet exhilarating shower space for comfort and fun!

With a variety of canopies and verandas in various designs and sizes, you can be sure you will be able to find the perfect patio canopy to balance any playful or artistic shower design that you have in mind!
