Create additional space in your home without a full-scale renovation simply by turning your backyard into an outdoor room.
In this blog, styling expert Justine Stedman shares her expert tips on how to turn your backyard into an outdoor room.
Justine’s first tip is to view outdoor areas with the same set of decorating principals you would use in internal spaces.
Scroll through for the rest of Justine’s tips.
1. Use glass to create an alfresco space
Glass doors are a great way to extend indoors and out. They create flow between the internal and external rooms and are visually very dramatic.
2. Opt for adaptable furnishings
Stacking chairs and a collapsible table are great options as they can be easily removed and allow flexibility depending on how many people need to circulate through the outdoor room.
3. Create a feature wall
Greenwalls are really popular at the moment and are a great way to make the most of small spaces. Alternatively an exposed brick wall can also make a statement, it really depends on the style you are hoping to achieve.
