Five Tips For Improved Indoor-Outdoor Living

Posted on July 31, 2019

The indoor-outdoor living space is a growing home design trend with more and more people investing time and money in it.  

The indoor-outdoor living aims to achieve a seamless connection between the home and the garden. By merging the internal living space with the outside, homeowners can maximise the use of the outdoors and create an internal living space that feels larger and more spacious. 

With the summer finally here, discover our five top tips on how to create that indoor-outdoor living experience? 

Update to bi-fold doors to open up the space

Bi-fold doors are a popular solution to enhancing the indoor-outdoor living and are often used when building contemporary conservatory extensions. With a distinctive hinge-free design, bi-fold doors can create a 90% clear opening between your home and garden, allowing you total flexibility and control.

Choose sliding doors to maximise light

If your aim is to maximise the flood of natural light, sliding doors are an alternative you might want to consider too. The minimally framed sliding glass doors let more light in, even when closed. They are a perfect option, if you only want to open only some part of the back of the house, as they open half the width of bi-folds doors. 

Covering your outdoor living area will allow you to use it any weather

If you are looking to create an integrated outdoor and indoor space, you can’t let rain and bad weather get in the way. Investing in a patio overhang will help you make the outdoor space feel like a true extension of the interior space. You can cover the outdoor living area with a solid roof structure, or you can consider a garden canopy, as a cheaper budget-friendly alternative.

Match your indoor and outdoor style

Extending the interior design style into the outdoor space is a clever way to create a seamless connection between your home and your patio. To create a harmonised cohesive design, use elements from you home décor style. Using complementing colour and materials for your patio will create a feel of harmony between the indoor and the outdoor. 

Keep the floor flowing throughout

Another way to create spaces that flow together, is to choose a patio flooring that is the same or is complementing the flooring of the adjacent indoor room. Travertine is a fine example of a durable paving product that would work well for this purpose and would look great indoors and outdoors. There are also a variety of other paving stones that come in different colours and styles and would perfectly match your home’s décor.
