Managing indoor-outdoor living spaces can be a challenge. Blending indoor and outdoor spaces is an unrealized dream to many. This article is here to help you with indoor-outdoor space ideas, connecting outdoor spaces, and bringing the indoor out. Read on to find out more.
Introduce glass doors and/or French doors
Provide the user with an exclusive view by adding French doors and/or glass doors. Plan a view of the outdoor areas, so you can see the yard, the beautiful patio, or the swimming pool.
Try to imagine potential scenarios for the night: the stars, the trees, and the friendly aura of a small, finely decorated outdoor living room outside the home. Thanks to the glass elements capable of creating a visual and spatial harmony with the interior of the building, all are easily visible.
If your purpose is also to add more natural light, it is worth considering wide windows with thin profiles that allow the rays of the sun to enter and that can be shifted to one side if necessary to establish continuity between indoors and outdoors.
Install flooring that corresponds to the one indoor
Choosing the same flooring will complement your look towards the outdoors with both the outdoor and indoor flooring. Bear in mind that in all weather situations, the type of flooring used outdoors must be appropriate for use. Select strong and long-lasting flooring materials that do not compromise aesthetics, i.e.:
Select the same principle of furnishing for indoor and outdoor spaces
Not only on a spatial level but particularly on a stylistic level, the indoor and outdoor areas should remain linked. To offer a general sense of aesthetic continuity, pick elements of indoor and outdoor furniture that have the same concept (glamorous, classic, contemporary, or what your customer appreciates most) or at least ensure that they complement each other, even if they do not belong to the same set.
Develop a composition of decorative lighting that gives a sense of continuity
At dusk, do not let the idyllic feeling typical of outdoor spaces slip away.
A good external decorative lighting system should consist of a well-organized layout with light points located ad hoc, much as for indoor spaces so that workstations and corners of interest are not left in the dark.
As you well know, in terms of atmosphere and functionality, lighting plays a central role as it improves the mood of the furnishings and enables those who inhabit and experience outside areas to travel in complete freedom. In stylistic agreement with the furniture composition, select decorative lamps: arched floor lamps, floor lamps, wall lamps, and suspension lamps made from the finest materials and approved for outdoor use.
Connect your indoor and outdoor spaces with these ideas.
