Building your Dream Outdoor Living Space

Your garden could be the perfect, cost effective extension you’ve always wanted. Innovative spatial design can create an outside area that connects your indoor and outdoor living, producing a more functional space that adds huge value to your property. It can seem a daunting task getting the most out of the space available, however, it can provide a fantastic opportunity to be creative in turning an unassuming plot into a green escape for relaxing, entertaining and enjoying, here’s how:

Take the inside, outside: Creating continuity across your interior and exterior, blurs the lines between the two spaces, and by building an outdoor kitchen, lounge or dining area you create a smoother flow between living areas. Decking can be a great way to construct a feature alfresco area or canopied entertainment space that provides maximum benefit to your garden, rain or shine. 

Utilise space: Small gardens especially, benefit from feeling more connected with inside living space. With a little spacial redesign you can unlock your garden’s true potential. If you have limited floor space, using vertical planting schemes works well, and tiered raised beds create key features for planting and lighting options.

Added Luxury: If you’re blessed with a larger garden, features such as summer houses can provide an extra room for guests, or a space for family members to have friends over without disturbing the calm of the main house. Combined with a glamorous hot tub, you have the perfect place to relax and unwind, doubling up as a majestic extra guest bedroom or even a holiday let.

Night time spaces: Subtle lighting transforms one garden into two. During the day, a natural, bright and practical space. By night, a cool, contemporary and beautiful living area that makes entertaining a delight. Choose the places you want to light based on your key features. Lighting around steps and pathways enhances an atmospheric but also safely lit journey around your garden. Lighting key features such as lounge or dining areas ensures the focus is still on them at night and creates an aesthetic and ambiance that your friends and family won’t forget.
