Indoor/outdoor spaces offer the best of both worlds, allowing you to enjoy nature and the outdoors in the comfort of your own home. Speaking to patio installers should give you ideas for designing your indoor/outdoor room, including:
1 – Bi-fold doors
These compact entranceways take up less space than sliding doors and are ideal for linking indoor/outdoor rooms to main home buildings, as well as letting in natural light and offering unobstructed views over gardens.
2 – Weatherproof furniture
Even if your indoor/outdoor room is well insulated and protected from rain, you should consider the damaging effects of sun fading when choosing UV resistant materials and fabrics. Weatherproof furniture can be taken outside when needed, making it a versatile option.
3 – Dining tables
Indoor/outdoor rooms can be great places for entertaining and hosting events, and a sizeable dining table can be ideal for alfresco dining and large family meals.
4 – Fireplaces
As well as providing valuable warmth on colder days and nights, a free-standing fireplace can also be a stand-out addition to this part of your home. Fireplaces that use renewable bi-ethanol fuel are less harmful to the environment as well as low maintenance.
5 – Decor
Rugs, throws and cushions are simple but powerful finishing touches to indoor/outdoor rooms, that can be easily changed according to the changing seasons and personal taste at low cost.
