Perhaps the biggest trend in home design today is how to bring the indoors out and the outdoors in. Designers bring plants into homes and install large windows and glass doors, and outdoors, you have your deck or patio. Mid-Atlantic Deck & Fence builds many decks, screened porches, pergolas, etc., for Maryland homeowners, but how do you bring those elements together to bring the indoors out? Let’s take a look at some ideas you might never have considered!
Feasting is one of the most unifying pastimes of all time, so it is only natural to accommodate cooking and eating in your outdoor living space. While the backyard is usually the place of the grill, it could also go a step further with an outdoor kitchen, a bar, or both. An outdoor dining set with optional shade is all you need to complete your al fresco dining space.
Outdoor Home Office
You might sometimes work outdoors if you work from home, but have you ever considered creating an outdoor home office? That is one novel way to bring the indoors out! Give yourself the option of working outside by creating a comfortable, fully-optimized outdoor office with nearby outlets and comfortable, office-friendly furnishings.
If you love movies or just watching videos, you could also take it outdoors and enjoy the show and the weather at the same time. For the sake of staying out of the rain, a three-season room would be the safest option. Otherwise, you could house a projector in a waterproof spot and install a roll-up projector screen in a subtle place, such as on one side of a pergola.
One of the easiest ways to bring the indoors out is to put out some comfortable outdoor seating. People have many options today for outdoor lounge sets, outdoor rugs, and even outdoor lighting, like standing lamps. Add a canopy umbrella, an awning, or a pergola, and you have a comfortable outdoor living area.
How Do You Want to Bring the Indoors Out?
As many types of rooms there are in a house, it is possible to bring it outdoors. Even a hammock could serve as an outdoor napping or “camping” place. These possibilities can spur one’s imagination, and hopefully, you have some ideas to consider!
