9 Outdoor rooms Just because the outdoor space doesn’t have walls, that doesn’t change the basic principles applied to any design project inside your home. With a few simple fundamentals to guide you, you’ll soon see how easy it is to create a beautiful outdoor room you’ll love entertaining and relaxing in throughout the warm days and balmy nights of summer. Key considerations include style, function, lighting and mood, and remember that your outdoor room ought to be an extension of the look you’ve created within your home, which reflects your personality and lifestyle. FOCAL POINT Beginning, as with any room of the home, a space must always have a focal point to anchor the space. For some, this may be a bar or barbeque area, a large dining table, or a chill-out zone with couches or loungers. Outdoor fireplaces are becoming more and more popular as our living areas blend seamlessly between indoor and outdoor entertaining throughout the changing of the seasons. They can serve not only practical purpose of somewhere to gather around to warm as the nights get shorter, an outdoor fire can make a stunning feature or room divider for any outdoor living area. Water feature like a pond with beautiful Koi fish can also service as a great outdoor focal point, creating a tranquil environment in which to relax and unwind in, or create a meditative Japanese rock garden which your outdoor area can overlook. IN THE ZONE If you already have a large terrace or outdoor area, a blank canvas is a great place to start. If you have a particularly large outdoor area, dividing the space into zones makes for a more functional and aesthetically pleasing space. You can do this by using a number of different elements, such as contrasting flooring materials or by creating different levels of decking. However, if you’re after a seamless indoor/ outdoor flow or wish to create the illusion of more space, use the same flooring materials indoors and out. Divisions can also be made with the clever positioning of furniture. Use modular seating to create divisions between zones, and are also an ideal way to camouflage ugly walls. Create privacy and soften sharp angels. Living walls, an ever-increasing popular vertical plant system, can be either free standing to create different outdoor areas and can be on wheels to easily transform your outdoor space at a moments notice. Play with height and scale with various types of planters, whether you use hanging planters to draw the eye upwards, or oversized planter pots to add drama. GO WITH THE FLOW Creating a great indoor/outdoor flow is easily created by opening up your kitchen with bi-fold doors or windows to create a servery or bar for easy entertaining. If you are building your home from the ground up, you may want to design an outdoor room which lies at the very epicentre of the building with rooms opening onto the communal courtyard with bi-fold doors. FUNCTION OVER FORM Consider what you intend to use your outdoor space for. If you don’t plan on eating outside, there’s no need for a dining table, but buy some comfortable outdoor seating instead, and if you only intend on sitting outdoors during the evening, then don’t waste money on awnings and umbrellas, and invest the money in an outdoor fireplace which you will actually use. ATMOSPHERE Create unique and personalised outdoor decor with textiles and homewares from your travels, your favourite antique shop, or make your own shell garlands or wreaths from beach holidays. String up fairy lights or lanterns to create a festive mood in the evenings.
