House & Garden
Australian indoor-outdoor living areas come hand in hand. Have a look at some ideas and pieces to add to your living area to fit your comfort.
Home & Garden
Create one flowing space
Having an outdoor area, especially when it’s time for entertaining your friends and family, and having the ability to access your outdoor area with the slide of a glass door, sounds amazing. Choose something that will make it easy to come and go. A way to connect two spaces, inside and out, can be done by having similar or complementary colours materials.
Prepare for all seasons
Summer is one of the seasons that lets us enjoy indoor and outdoor living. Set up your indoor-outdoor space so you can enjoy both all year round. Add some outdoor heating to make cool nights more abilities or make it more fun by adding a fire pit. There are always ways to still enjoy your backyard even in winter.
Functionality is the secret to a great outdoor living environment. All you need to do is add the furniture and finishes that are right. Consider introducing dual-purpose seating such as concealed storage bench seating and creating seating areas that are easy to relax in but still easy to eat.
Smart blinds and awnings
An outdoor blind or awning is the perfect way to connect your indoor and outdoor space seamlessly. Consider a folding arm awning that can instantly shade and safeguard a room or expand an indoor living area at the click of a button. Some can be fitted with optional extras like sun sensors or wind sensors that extend or retract depending on weather conditions.
Covered patios are a must-have because they protect your family from the hot summer sun, providing a relaxing shaded gathering spot. There are many options to consider including pergolas, canopies, umbrellas, awnings, and gazebos.
From chaise lounges to dining tables and chairs, sufficient seating is very important to complete the space. The amount of seating depends on how large your parties may be and how often the area will be used.
