A beautiful outdoor space is now just as important as your indoor space and creating a flow between indoors and out can sometimes be challenging! KORHANI home has you covered though, as we are sharing our best tips to acheive a cohesive and stylish flow between indoors and out:
Keep Close & Remove Barriers
When designing your outdoor space, keep it close to the indoor entertaining areas such as your kitchen or dinning room. This will provide you with the convenience of going from the kitchen to the patio without a long hike.
The best way to have your outdoor space flow with your indoor space is to literally open up your interior to the outdoors. Do not be afraid to use large pocket or accordion doors as they will remove physical barriers and let you enjoy both spaces together.
Let the Outdoors In
The best way to combine the two spaces is to use to floor-to-ceiling glass or large panel windows to open up the view and make the walls, which can act as a barrier, disappear. When the space is opened up, it becomes much easier to create a flow between the indoors and out, as it allows you to use similar furniture and colour schemes.
Use Colour and Accessories
A quick and easy way to integrate your indoor and outdoor spaces is to design both with complementary colours and materials. Keep it simple outdoors by relating your garden to your indoor space. Have a favourite flower planted in the garden? Add one to a small pot and bring it indoors as well!
Use similar materials inside and outside to create a symmetrical flow and make sure to use a similar colour scheme. Matching area rugs are a great way of integrating outdoor and indoor spaces. Patio rugs are becoming so stylish that you will want to bring them indoors – which you can! And because they are built to last in the elements, it makes them extra durable for indoor use.
