Is your home the best it can be? Do you feel like there’s something missing, something just not right? Maybe your outdoor area is lacking. To create a truly amazing home your outdoors need to match the excellence of your indoors. Read on to find out why.
The Outdoors are Being Used More than Ever
Growing trends are showing that the outdoors are being used far more often for entertaining. Modern outdoor designs are creating entirely new ideas on outdoor entertainment, making the exterior far more comfortable than it has ever been.
Even though a stylish outdoor setting is important for entertaining, it is also just as important for your own personal comfort. You need to think about what kind of area you can see yourself sitting back and relaxing in. Consider what you want out of the space before you start designing an entertaining area. If renovations are in your plans make sure you talk to the experts, like the people at Additions Building, before you start.
Matching the Outdoors with the Indoors
To keep a natural flow from your interior to your exterior, it is important to keep the same design style all the way through. When your design matches, you will find your house feels bigger and more spacious and your outdoor areas are suddenly much more inviting.
Useful and Comfortable Designs
Outdoor areas are gradually becoming more like indoor spaces. They are growing more accessible, more useful and more comfortable. Designs range from fully functioning kitchens to entire lounge suites. Studies have shown people expect their outdoors areas to be useful as their interior counterparts. With the rise of outdoor entertainment it is vital that designs fit the needs of the modern setting.
Wireless technology has completely revolutionised outdoor entertainment. To start with, speakers can now be connected wirelessly and attached to iPods and internet radio through smart phones, bringing unlimited amounts of music outside with unprecedented ease. Many outdoor ‘lounges’ and kitchen areas now have TVs mounted on walls and some designs even include exterior home theaters systems.
Improved Outdoor Lighting
Lighting has come a long way for the outdoor areas. With improved lighting styles, exterior areas can now easily match interior lighting, creating seamless transitions between the two spaces. A blend of colour and light matching, as well as the style of lamps or light casings will help to unify and bring your home together.
By making your outdoor setting as stylish as your indoors, and matching the designs, you will immediately increase your property value. Market value is adjusted by a lot of variables but an outdoor setting that is designed for entertaining will have an immediate effect on the value of your home.
These are just a few of the reasons why the outdoors need to be just as stylish as the interior. What other reasons are there to have a stylish outdoor setting?

If ever I will get a place of my own, I would probably get a place with a big outdoor area. I want my kids and even my pets enjoy the spacious place to ran around.
I love the model house you displayed on this post. How we all wish we have that kind of house, very relaxing siguro to live in.

I have to agree with your tips mommy! 🙂 Having an outdoor area really creates a different kind of ambiance. Sadly, finding a home with a spacious outdoor area in the metro can be expensive. I guess we just have to be resourceful and do whatever we can with the space we currently have 🙂

A nice outdoor area is something we want added to the house we’re going to have built soon. The pictures made me more excited about the house! 😀
I totally agree! In fact, we are shipping all of our outdoor stuff from the US so we can use it upstairs. We are just renting out, though. Hopefully- God-willing, we can have our own house soon. 🙂 Great tip,s btw.;)
With 2 toddlers, I seem to be spending more time outdoors than indoors. I’d definitely want it to look nice and impressive. 🙂
