We're in that funny time of year when we can sit outside in the sunshine but we can't be sure it will be warm enough to take off our cardigans.

With the current forecast, you'll probably be turning up at your friends' garden with a bag-full of potential layers and an extra pair of socks.

For evenings when the sun sets before you're quite ready to leave a social engagement, a patio heater is a garden must-have – and we've found one of the most-stylish outdoor heaters to brighten up your garden.

Why we rate it:

The Kettler Kalos Plush Floorstanding Electric Patio Heater is a freestanding, electric-powered heater that is cleverly disguised as a lamp with a modern rope design shade.

The sleek design features efficient infrared technology and has double frost halogen heating lamps that can reach an impressive heat of up to 2100W.

The heating and LED light can be operated via remote control, so there's no need to move out of your comfy spot to turn it on.

It also has three heat seatings so you can really tailor it to the (often unpredictable) temperatures.

Choose between Low (900W), Medium (1200W) and High (2100W) and for added peace of mind, there's a safety tilt cut-off mechanism.
