Achieving the right look with landscape design is no easy feat. If you’re not an expert, you may even be calling for one before long. Landscape design and landscaping, in general, can be quite the balancing act.
It doesn’t get any easier when it comes to indoor-outdoor flow either. You may have a beautiful outdoor area and an even more lovely home, but how do you get the two to talk to each other? You can either consult a landscaping expert in your area or read on.
Light it Up
If your goal of improving indoor-outdoor flow is so that you can enjoy both areas equally, then think about lighting. You may be less likely to utilise your outdoor entertainment area if it’s poorly lit. No one wants to sit in the dark when your home has plenty of lighting for everyone.
Consider installing solar lighting, fairy lights, and permanent ones that enhance the connection. A well-lit entertainment area is welcoming and warm.
Your outdoor entertainment area should be a seamless transition from your home. You should be able to walk out of your living or kitchen area, directly into an equally as sheltered and covered outdoor space. Consider building a pergola-type structure to enhance that cover. Otherwise, look at shade cloths and archways to connect the two areas.
