Summer is just around the corner and so is Christmas, which is less than 100 days away, so if you’d like to spend happy and comfortable times outside during the coming months, it’s time to get cracking. If your outdoor living area is either non-existent or sadly in need of an update, there’s still time to organise Outside Concepts to design and build a new outdoor living area for you and your family.
Outdoor living the Australian way – 4 key tips
Australians relish spending time outdoors and we love to kick back and enjoy time off work. So a new outdoor living area is a great way to combine these two passions. If you’re looking to design and build a new outdoor living area at your home, here are 4 key tips from Outside Concepts.
- Location – For most homeowners, the best location for an outdoor living area is off your indoor living area. Put simply, blurring the lines between outside and inside is one of the biggest trends in home design. It also makes practical sense, as you spend a lot of time in your indoor living area and it’s also likely to be close to the kitchen, which is perfect when you’re entertaining. If you can’t or don’t want to locate your outdoor living area off your indoor living room, other places to consider are directly off your kitchen or the main bedroom. The latter is often perfect for a private outdoor living area.
- Design and style – To decide on the style of your outdoor living area, look no further than your existing home. Matching design elements and style will always be a winner and will further enhance the blending of the inside and outside.
- Materials – Similar to design and style, using materials that are the same as or sympathetic to materials used in your home is the best choice. For example, if you have timber floors inside your house, installing a timber decking and choosing timber that is similar in colour to the timber inside is a great idea.
- Getting help – This is undoubtedly the most important aspect of any outdoor living project. Who you get to help you design and build your new outdoor living area is key to a successful project.
