OUTDOOR HOME DESIGN IDEAS
The personality and feel of every home is seriously influenced by its relationship with the exterior. In the case of large residential projects, this indoor-outdoor connection is easy to accomplish, especially if there is a garden involved.
The most important thing to remember when designing your outdoor living space is to blend the look and feel of your home’s interior into the exterior.
Whether you are buying a home, renovating, have a small city garden or a balcony; you should consider enhancing your outside living area. Again, it will allow you to appreciate the outdoors; the beautiful flowers, greenery or views in a comfortable setting.
Always decorate your outdoor space with a casual and comfortable feel.
The key to creating a good space either indoors or out -- is making sure the environment allows for relaxation and enjoyment.
Start creating your backyard escape by surrounding yourself with items
that reflect your personal taste.
Prepare for spontaneous entertaining with furniture that can withstand the elements, such as a teak table and a matching set of chairs or benches.
To create an impressive outdoor space, combine a variety of materials and finishes. Commonly used materials are concrete, wood, stone, slate, steel and lacquer. Elements within the space should have geometric lines, free from lavish decoration.
Always remember “less is more”.
