Ways to Expand Your Living Space
With the summer well and truly in our sights and the main problems of COVID-19 looking like a thing of the past, we can finally start to enjoy life once again and plan for the rest of the year.
However, with a lot of businesses and countries still enforcing some restrictions and safety measures, many of the places that we’d like to go to enjoy ourselves may not be fully open or may be limited in some capacity. As a result, many people may opt to spend their time out in the sun in the comfort of their own homes, which isn’t the worst thing in the world, especially if you have the outdoor living space to accommodate.
In this article, we take a look at some of the ways that you can expand your outdoor living space to allow you to make the most out of your property whilst having some fun in the sun!
Making the most out of your outdoor living space
So, instead of going abroad and spending thousands on a holiday, why not use the money to expand your home and adding in some new and stylish features that allow you to get more from your property? Sounds good, right? Well, if you don’t know where to begin and need a little inspiration to get the ball rolling, we’re here to help!
Here is a selection of home design ideas that you can add to your property.
A new patio
If your garden or outdoor space doesn’t already have a patio area, then this should be one of the first things on the list when it comes to expanding your property. Create a practical space using high-quality outdoor tiles where the possibilities are endless. Here, you can add some beautiful garden furniture to create a place where you and your family and friends can relax and enjoy your surroundings or throw on a top-of-the-range outdoor barbeque where you and the family can whip up some good old fashioned home cooking on those warm summer nights.
Better yet, why not install some indoor-outdoor tiles and merge the inside of your home to the outside, creating one seamless space between the interior and exterior? This is a technique that has become more and more popular amongst homeowners as they attempt to bring the inside of their outside to enjoy more of their surroundings and environment.
If patios aren’t really your thing but you still fancy getting a bit more use out of your garden, why not install a new deck? The great thing about adding decking to your garden is that there are so many options and designs for you to choose from! From multi-layered decks to covered decks, to barbeque and fire pits, you can really let your mind and imagination run free with some sleek and stylish looks.
Now, the way that your deck looks is important but the deck boards that you choose to install are just as, if not more important than the design. Here, you have a selection of board types, ranging from cheaper plastic boards to more traditional hardwood and softwood boards, however, if you really fancy pushing the boat and creating a deck that will not only look amazing but will last a long time and require little to no maintenance, then composite decking is the way to go. Mix and match board colours to create a deck that is sure to stand out and catch the eye of any guest or go down the more classic route of a one-colour deck, as we said the options are endless. A quality deck is always a great way to expand your garden which allows those creative juices you have to get flowing.
A garden room
If you’re looking for a more practical addition to your outdoor space and want to stray away from flooring products, then a high-quality garden room may be just the thing for you. Like a patio and deck, the options on how you choose to use a garden room are limitless. Here you can whip up your very own home office, meditation room or gym. However, since we’re here to expand your outdoor area and to focus on how we can have fun with family and friends, why not create an outdoor dining room where you can host your very own dinner parties or cocktail nights?
With a garden room, you can do just that and more! Available in a range of designs and materials with a heap of additional features including sound systems, lighting and heating you can turn any garden room into your very own entertainment space that can be enjoyed for years to come.
So, just because the world may not exactly be what it once was just yet, it doesn’t mean that you can’t enjoy life being in your garden! With just these three ideas, you can transform your outdoor space into something magical that can expand your outdoor living space in ways you could never imagine.
