Outdoor living. It’s the thing that dreams are made of. More and more, we’re seeing beautiful outdoor living areas being built as an extension of luxury homes. We are in love with this trend and today we’re sharing some top tips for your own outdoor room.Whether you’re building on an additional structure for a family braai room, or you’re creating a functional deck or patio space for entertaining, outdoor living is a great way to maximise your space and enhance your home’s value.
An outdoor room can include anything from an attached, screened-in porch to a gazebo to a landscaped area with a bench. If you can dream it, you can probably build it and transform your back yard into an outdoor oasis.
Some great additions to an outdoor room include:
- A seamless floor from your home to your outdoor room. This will create symmetry and a smooth transition for indoor-outdoor living.
- A covered deck, pergola or upright structure with a roof that offers shade and versatility, no matter the weather.
- A hedged in area or fence for added privacy. You could invest in a stylish screen or plants to separate your garden areas from your outdoor room.
Let’s not forget the outdoor kitchen…
No outdoor room is complete without an outdoor kitchen. Invest in a great braai or pizza oven and you’ll be set for the summer months of entertaining in style.
Remember, you’ll also need an outdoor table and weather-proof furniture to fully maximise and enjoy the space. You could build a deck near your indoor kitchen and open a window or doorway to the inside to help you better serve up those delicious outdoor meals. Alternatively, have a customised outdoor kitchen built-in, customised with plumbing, counters and more for a truly unique and inspired outdoor room.
Built-ins are also great for any outdoor room. Think customise cabinets and more for added storage and prep space in your outdoor kitchen.
Imagine a summer-night braai while your family relaxes in a stylish and functional outdoor space! A worthy investment indeed.
