Towards sunshine, the summer breeze, and starry nights


We all like to wrap ourselves in thick sheets, sip hot chocolate, and warm our feet with heaters during the colder months, but as Spring tiptoes by the door, so does the warmth our islands are known for.

I may be a lover of layers and warm cups of tea, but I can’t deny – I am looking forward to lazing around at the beach, and enjoying a drink on the terrace as the sun sets.

Creating a luxurious outside space allows you to take a reprieve from hours spent in an office, work room, the kitchen, or anywhere else indoors. Whether you have your eye on a spacious roof, porch, pool, deck, or a small patio, building the perfect outdoor sanctuary requires only one thing – imagination.

First, figure out what you want

If shaping a stylish, open-air entertainment area with an urban feel is your aim, and if you intend on hosting both family and friends or use it for semi-formal gatherings, opting for more expansive outdoor dining designs is required. This can be done both on decks, patios, and rooftops. If you want to create a more low-key, bohemian setting, patterned fabric, lounges, and wooden furniture may be preferable. Those who like a minimalistic approach may want to consider black fibre furniture and prioritise space and ambience over utility.


Second, create dimension

Most professional real estate agents will tell you that, by creating space indoors, you raise the value and attractiveness of your home. The opposite can be observed with outdoor spaces. Without any framing, whether it comes in the form of walls, fences, or ceilings, your outdoors may look flat and scattered. Adding walls and ceilings allows you to create depth and positive space.

Whatever room it is that leads to your patio, consider joining them. This does not necessarily require one to knock down walls. Windows and glass doors are enough to create a connection. Also, consider altering the function of the room to match that of the outdoor space.

One more thing, do take into account that by renovating the landscape of one’s home, its value in the market increases radically. Creating a functional outdoor space, screening from neighbours and busy roads, landscape lighting, plants, and walkways all heighten the attractiveness of one’s home.


Third, set the ambience

You do not need a garden in order to have a natural, inviting outdoor space. If the space you intended to use is your rooftop, adding plants will add a touch of natural life that accentuates its atmosphere. You can use flowers, low maintenance plants, or place rosemary and chives for a touch of purple, spring onions for a dash of white, basils for a blend of both, and pineapple sage for a streak of red. To create a natural, warm ambience, transmute the bland, white roof walls through a cladding or seamless stone texture. Wooden fences, and parasols will definitely help you in this direction.
