Many of us dream of a personal swimming pool, particularly during sweltering heat of summer or harsh winters. With growing changes in design, your dream can become a reality and become the owner of an open air or sheltered pool. The investment of a personal swimming area no longer has to be seasonal option; pool’s can also come heated, meaning you can enjoy your new outdoor living area all year round.
Outdoor Living Room
A great idea, which many people have chosen to do, is creating a living or sitting area outside. The area can be on a raised section, decorated with weather proof sofas and outdoor fires. Similar to the swimming pool idea, the area can also be sheltered, which can hold the addition of wall mounted speakers. Which will add a more homely touch, a place where you can relax and listen to music with your family.
There is a myriad of ideas that a potential buyer can utilise in their outdoor living space, such as: pergolas, home office, fire area, sun house etc.
Soft furnishings and Decor
Similar to the design/purpose concept, there are thousands of ways to decorate your outdoor living space. The new outdoor living area, no matter the purpose, can be transformed by theme and colour. Widely used designs are: Moroccan and French designs, however Asian influences is coming back into fashion, albeit more understated than yesteryear.
The chosen theme can be expressed in: fabrics, cushions, rugs, smells and vases. A part of the design for you to think about is electricity, specifically the lighting and what kind of atmosphere you wish to have. Lighting that is interchangeable as fashion, which is why we recommend LED lights that have the capacity to dim.
Planning & Pintrest
The design of an outdoor living space comes down to one thing, which is personal taste and budget. In the beta period of design, e.g. the soft furnishings etc, is having a vision. Which can be shown on mood boards, or using online websites such as Pintrest, where you are able to see your design come to life. The great thing about mood boards, or collages on websites, is that it isn’t a final decision. You can take time to think about what you need in an outside living area and the best way to express that with decor and soft furnishings.
