To Camp or ‘Glamp’. That is the question…

There are some people who are happy with just a one man tent and the bare essentials when heading off camping. We like to go all out with a few extra home comforts. If you’ve heard of ‘Glamping‘ you’ll get my drift. There are plenty of reasons to style your camping trip. You might want to jazz things up because you are celebrating a special family event, such as a reunion. Or you might just like to make your next camping trip the most comfortable and memorable ever.

Start by thinking about furniture, if you intend socialising and entertain friends in style. Sites like EasyShade Marquees are a great place to purchase an outdoor marquee or gazebo and there are a number of websites that have a massive range of tables, chairs, loungers, comfortable camp beds and storage.

Why it makes sense to take furniture camping

If you like to feel more natural on a camping trip, you may not like the idea of ‘Glamping’ it up. But, the whole idea of camping is to spend quality time with loved ones. Great furniture and comfort just makes the camping trip super fun.

Instant living room in nature

Marquees are a great way to protect everyone from the sun’s harsh rays or even the rain while camping. Pop in chairs, tables, loungers and the BBQ and you’ll have an instant outdoor living and dining area. Now slip a drink in your hand and some nibbles within arms reach. You’ll relish in your outdoor living room and be happy you took the time to set up your camp area so well.

How to have a comfortable sleep when camping

Make sure your sleep arrangements are also premium when camping. If you’ve been camping it is likely you’ve had ‘one of those’ awful bad sleep experiences. Camp beds are a comfortable option. They have the the added advantage of storage area underneath. Placing items underneath will also protect you from the cold if you happen to be camping in colder months.

Air beds can be more comfortable but remember to take a pump with you. Many air beds are self inflatable too – so consider these as an easy option.  Sleeping bags are also essential for keeping super warm on those cold nights.
