Let’s Take It Outside – Your Outdoor Room

Let’s Take It Outside – Your Outdoor Room

The value of your outdoor space is higher than you might think. Did you know that a recent survey showed that a deck is the most highly desirable feature of property buyers in Australia? Here’s how to optimize your outdoor space to create an extra room rather than just a space outdoors.


Interior designers are incorporating the free-flow from the indoors out,  more and more often. Using glass does just this and has many perks too. Glass bi-folds don’t only create convenience in dull weather but create a flow from the indoors out, extending the area into the inviting backyard. Adding glass has a dramatic feel along with the ease of alfresco living just seems so appealing.

What better way to draw your guest’s attention than to create an eye-catching statement? This will draw them out of the usual indoor space and allow an interest in your new room. Green walls are a trendy way to do this, or you could leave an exposed brick wall to draw the eye.

Depending on the style you are hoping to achieve, the feature wall is an exciting way to make the most of a small space. With a bit of creativity and careful thinking about getting the most function into your outdoor area – it can be transformed into another useable and inviting living space perfect for entertaining all year round.


Brightly coloured and patterned cushions, throws and table decorations are an easy way to present your outdoor room. What’s handy about this tip is it can be easily updated with the changing trends and your colour choices. Keep your furniture neutral and play around with your colour options in the décor. Drawing your guests to your backyard space and giving it a pop of life.

Add a mirror in your outdoor space to make the area feel bigger and reflect the greenery. The wonderful thing about mirrors is their ability to bring light into an area, creating a space which looks larger than is it. This trick is useful in modern homes where people are choosing the convenience of location over space. Making the room as light and spacious as possible can bring an area to life. Mirrors make great wall art too, especially those that are textured and have colour in them.
