A successful outdoor room contains many of the same elements as a room within your house. Some things to keep in mind when designing such a room are:
- Create a well-defined space – Use natural barriers, such as hedges or trees, as well as man-made ones, such as a gate or trellis, to define your outdoor room. Your space can be secluded – a kind of “secret garden” – or a more open patio for entertainment.
- Don’t forget the “door” – Every room needs a door, even an outdoor room. Use an arbor, trellis, hedge or gate to mark the entrance to your outdoor space.
- Seating – Whether it’s a single bench or a table for twelve, every garden room needs a place to sit – be that to reflect, to sip a glass of wine, or to dine.
- Unity – Your outdoor room doesn’t have to match every other space in your yard, especially if you’ve done a good job of defining the space, but it should work together well itself, in terms of plants, colors, shapes, and ambiance.
Outdoor spaces are wonderful places to spend those sultry summer evenings. Whether you plans call for an active area, a quiet meditative garden room, or a patio entertainment center complete with outdoor kitchen, we can help you with all of your materials, furnishing, and accessory needs.
