How to connect your indoor and outdoor living spaces

How to connect your indoor and outdoor living spaces

3 Jul 2017 prosmarketing 0 Comment

Australians love spending time outdoors and this is evident in many homes. Modern property designs create a seamless transition between indoor and outdoor areas, creating an illusion of space and allowing people to make the most of their gardens.

When selling it can pay to showcase a seamless transition between indoor and outdoor areas.  Where possible try to accentuate the interior’s link to any outdoor entertaining areas. These spaces should effortlessly flow from inside your home.

A few tips to help you connect the inside and outside of your property:

Use the same materials – Using the same materials or design features in both indoor and outdoor areas will help one area flow seamlessly to the next. You can do this by matching furniture or colours. You could also use the same type of flooring throughout so that guests don’t know when one room ends and the other begins.

Showcase outside views – Use outside views to help enhance the inside of your home. To make sure views are showcased, use window treatments that allow you to see outside such as blinds and shutters. Also carefully consider how furniture placement can make the most of a view. For example, in a study you should face a desk against a window with a view so that people can enjoy it while they work.

Let light into your home – Natural light helps achieve the feeling of being outside on a sunny day. The best way to achieve this is by adding features such as skylights in dark internal spaces. Another option is to install glass panelling on external walls or using full height windows and doors.

Create an interesting focal point – Give guests no option but to pay attention to outdoor areas by adding an interesting outdoor feature such as a sculpture or a feature tree. This can help add a new dimension to your home and when it comes to natural features like plants it acts as a work of art that changes all year round.

Don’t neglect side gardens – Side gardens can have as big an impact as the front of backyard. Plant trees outside windows where you want added shade or privacy. You might also like to consider sectioning off a small area to create a little reading nook or space for people to go and relax.
