We love spending time outdoors and we love to entertain which makes outdoor entertaining so popular here in Australia.
A beautiful indoor-outdoor living space is the perfect way to relax and spend time with your family and friends. It will bring light, space and added value to your home. It can also be your sanctuary or home away from home at the end of a long day.
Here are four simple tips to help you create a seamless indoor-outdoor living space for you and your family, no matter the size or style of your space.
1. Use bi-fold doors or large glass panes between your indoor and outdoor areas to maximise your space and create flow within your home.
2. Consider using matching colour schemes and designs, this will help bring everything together. For example you could use the same coloured paint, lighting and flooring. Using similar furniture combinations and cushions will also create a sense of flow and make your home feel cohesive and much more spacious.
3. Ceiling fans are great for outdoor living areas. They create a cool breeze in summer and circulate heat in winter. Fireplaces are also a good option to keep you warm during the cooler months. By installing a fan or a fireplace you can still sit outside comfortably and entertain all year round.
4. One thing we all love to do is have a BBQ and to cook out doors. And cooking by the pool is a very nice way to end the day. Outdoor kitchens are a great feature and can be designed to fit any sized space. These are always a great additional to any home.
