Take the Indoors Out with the Outdoor Living Room.
People have long worked to bring the outdoors in, incorporating potted plants, lots of natural light, and nature-inspired textures, fabrics, and patterns into their interior décor. Today, there is also a shift in the opposite direction, as more and more designers bring what would traditionally be seen as an indoor space into the great outdoors. Here are just a few ways you can capitalize on the new outdoor living room trend and incorporate indoor outdoor living into your home.
§ Warm It Up with a Fire Pit: You love cozying up around the fireplace in your living room during the winter months. Why not enable your family to do just that under the stars by installing an outdoor fire pit? Beyond the physical warmth it adds, it also creates a cozy, glowing ambience and is a great central point around which people can gather when you entertain.
§ Make it Inviting with the Right Furniture: Part of what makes your living room such a great place to spend time is the comfort. Bring that relaxation outdoors with L-shaped sofas and comfortable chairs for lounging. Newer all-weather materials are softer with many color and pattern options to enhance any décor.
§ Define the Space: Just because your outdoor living room is outdoors doesn’t mean it has to lack structure. Add a pergola, hang curtains or anchor the area with an outdoor area rug so it will feel like a separate space from the rest of your yard. Add Bi-fold, Multi-slide or Lift and Slide patio doors to open up a wall of your home to the outdoors for a seamless living space from the inside.
The right entry doors and patio doors making bringing the indoors out and vice versa much easier. Want to learn more? Simply click the Match Me with a Dealer button to get started!
