Building a new or remodeling an existing outdoor living room is always an idea worth the money and effort. In the end, nature is always a popular decorating theme. And with “bringing the outside into the room” is too often used to define using natural elements for interior decorating, what about trying something new by “bringing the inside outside the room”?
Speaking of outdoor living room ideas, you surely have explored many attractive and cozy deck and patio designs. However, remember that aesthetic appeal and comfort isn’t the only thing you must take into account when deciding if this project is suitable for you. The value of your home can be boosted too.
One of the popular outdoor room designs you can consider is by enclosing a pergola or gazebo in outdoor curtains. Gazebo curtains can provide protection against sunlight in sunny days while improving the visual appeal by framing the outdoor space. Alternatively, build a trellis, arch, or doorway that leads to the outdoor room. This type of outdoor structure give guests the unique feeling of stepping into a whole new space—not to mention colorful climbing plants for more visual interest. There are various fencing options to frame your outdoor living area, which can be decorated too. Bamboo, weathered barn wood, shrubs, or latticework can make a great choice of fencing for outdoor room.
Aside from curtains, protection to your outdoor living area can be provided by installing an awning. Bonus: you can use one with eye-catchy design. Therefore, even during foul weather, your outdoor living space is still open for leisure. Last but not least, complement your outdoor room with the right choice of furnishings. Remember the big picture—“bring the inside out”. Therefore, don’t hesitate to have your outdoor living design ideas featuring traditional indoor furnishings!
