Indoor-Outdoor living

It’s natural to think of home and garden as two separate entities with a strict boundary in between. But linking indoor and outdoor spaces – even if it’s only a tiny garden or terrace – can help an interior feel larger. With the exterior connected to the house your eye sees further and a garden-facing room appears larger.

When you get it right, you are more likely to spend your days with the doors open, enjoying lots of daylight and fresh air. Pulling off this clever trick doesn’t have to mean a huge spend, either. 

For a modest cost, decorative choices can successfully blur the boundary between indoor and outdoor spaces. Dedicate a bigger budget to improvements, however, and you could put up a home-stretching garden structure, or swap to glazing that improves the feeling of space and makes garden access far better, allowing you to make more use of your plot. Even additions that take up some of the garden can end up making both in and out seem sized up.


Living Space

In recent years, there has been a growing trend towards creating seamless indoor-outdoor living spaces. In 2023 this trend has grown in home extension design.

This may include creating a new outdoor living area, such as a covered patio or outdoor kitchen, or extending an existing living space to create a more open and airier feel.

As more people work from home and have multiple uses for their living spaces, there is a growing trend towards creating multi-functional spaces in home extensions. This may include creating a home office that doubles as a guest bedroom or a playroom that also functions as a home gym.
