If you’re like most people, you’re definitely aware of the phrase “bringing the outdoors in,” but how about you consider the opposite, which is simply making the outdoor space an extension of the indoors.
Bringing the inside trends out, in the form of materials, styles, and colors not only creates a beautiful and harmonious flow between the indoors and the outdoors, but you’ll also gain extra living space.
If you’re on board with this, here are the possibilities of making that happen.
- Give your outdoors a touch of neutral colors
Neutral grey, white, and subtle beige colors are traditionally indoor colors. So, how about you take that neutrality and bring it outside, with the decking, outdoor furniture, and some other décor pieces.
Using multiple shades of these colors creates a stylish dimension on your exteriors, plus the fact that grey is borrowed from nature makes it even more authentic.
- Customize your wood to match the interiors
If you have hardwood flooring for your interiors, you can mirror the look and feel of hardwood outside through your composite decking. It’s pretty much continuous flooring outside.
- Borrow the idea of “defined rooms”
Just as the indoors is designated as an entertainment space, dining area, bedrooms, cooking area, etc, you can do the same outdoors. A simple outdoor kitchen with an extension of a seating area will do the trick just fine.
You can also add a fireplace within your outdoor seating area for the cozy and comfortable feel, some lighting, and maybe your decking boundaries can act as an “outdoor wall.”
Hopefully, this space will not only add more functionality to your home, but you’ll also be getting an upgrade to your home’s aesthetics.
- Make the most with finishes
Do a replication of the indoor finishes outside with the addition of beautiful lighting fixtures, rugs, and some metal railings for your deck that are similar to the ones you have indoors.
With the right styles, design, materials, and color, mirroring your indoors will create a cohesive blend of your interiors and exteriors, giving your home a unique style.
