Open Up Your Home’s Possibilities With an Outdoor Room
The sun is shining, the air smells sweet. It’s summertime and we all want to be outside, but in today’s world our lives are too often played out behind closed doors. With an “indoor outdoor” room you can throw those doors wide open and experience this beautiful weather from the comfort of your favorite chair.
To create a room that can cohesively blend an interior and exterior space requires careful planning. Just as with any room in your home, architectural style, space requirements, and styling options must be considered, but special attention must also be given to the challenges of living outside.
Incorporating elements that will create a cohesive look for your indoor outdoor room will provide definition to a space without walls. Extending architectural elements across thresholds, such as exposed beams, and choosing patterns and colors that can be referenced throughout will be visual markers that will connect the whole room.
There are many options available to address your home’s weather-proofing needs. New technologies in heating and cooling , and waterproof and fade resistant materials and fabrics offer several options to protect the structural integrity and keep it comfortable even as the seasons change.
Strategic landscaping with decorative stone , fountains and shade trees will compliment your home and give you all the privacy you desire.
Create intimate spaces by adding awnings and gazebos, or block unwanted noise from busy streets with an exterior wall.
