Many people think of their home and their garden as two separate things. Each one has its own unique purposes, and there is a strict boundary between them. But actually, the two are inextricably linked and there are many great reasons to perceive them this way.
Connecting your indoor and outdoor areas with areas such as a conservatory, patio, or terrace can create a sense of flow between the separate spaces. This can help your home to feel larger and more welcoming to guests. Your garden-facing rooms will seem more spacious and you will be more likely to spend time outdoors enjoying the mental health benefits of nature.
But how can you achieve a successful indoor-outdoor flow?
One way is to use the same flooring inside and out, as this creates a sense of continuity throughout your property. This could involve wooden floorboards in the garden, or paved slabs or tiles in the kitchen. And you don’t have to restrict yourself to flooring either - this can apply to any design such as lighting, colour scheme, or furniture.
A canopy also helps with the sense of flow, as it establishes a midpoint between the indoors and outdoors. You can sit under shelter on a rainy day while still getting fresh air, or you can enjoy the sunshine without getting burnt.
There are so many other ways to enhance the union between your garden and your home, from installing more windows to adding more greenery indoors. Get in touch now to find out how we can help you upgrade your outdoor living space.
