3 Ways to Create Connection Between Indoor and Outdoor Living

It’s not just in Florida that we want to live long and prosper in the great outdoors. People who live in chillier climates are also finding ways to bring outdoor living inside and indoor living outside. It’s easy to see why this is so appealing. There’s nothing quite like sitting in your three season living area by the glow of an outdoor fireplace, anticipating the supper about to come off the grill.

By making a purposeful design choice, forward-thinking architects and builders are taking this one step further by connecting indoor and outdoor rooms. They are making sure that your decor incorporates natural light and oversized windows. Imagine the joy of fresh air and the beauty of the outdoors with the comfort and class of a living room.

If you live in an older house, don’t feel left out. You too can create this sense of connectivity by modifying your existing features. Here are a few ways to DIY:

Install New Doors

Replace old solid doors with sliding glass or open-paned models. Look for doors that provide lots of natural light. Better yet, find a door that can slide like a pocket door to create a natural flow of traffic that seamlessly brings outdoor living to life.

Cover Your Porch

Create an indoor/outdoor living flow by covering an already-existing deck, patio, or porch. Now you can enjoy the weather, even when it doesn’t cooperate. Add weather-resistant comforts from indoors like sofas, chairs, and rich textiles for a living room feel.

Mirror Your Home’s Shape

Extend your porch or patio to the full width of your house to make the spaces seamlessly intertwined. Add sliding glass doors and oversized windows and you’ll find yourself spending a lot more time outdoors.

An indoor-outdoor living connection can make your home feel more spacious and filled with light, but more importantly, it can improve your quality of life. Entertain your friends, spend quality time with your family, enjoy a beautiful sunset, and watch the rain from the comfort of a cozy porch. No other design change or remodel has a greater impact on the value of your home and your life.
