Basking in space and the ability to connect throughout your home is what makes open plan living an unbeatable floor plan. So, if you’ve already updated your kitchen and ticked off opening your floor plan, consider embracing the outdoors. Soaking up the sun by simply stepping straight out of your living room into a comfortable outdoor space could be just what you need.

Installing wide bi-fold doors that fully open your home to your outdoor area is a great start. Servery windows can make entertaining a lot easier; this space can double as additional seating and extended bench space.

If you’ve made it this far without adding something to your DIY list, we’re impressed. Now, this last part is what you can do to truly revolutionise how you use your outdoor space.

If you’re not keen on a complete overhaul, something simple like outdoor furniture or a fire pit could be the next best step. But if you’re ready to redesign your outdoor area, we have a few tips. Firstly, check area building codes and ensure you use experienced and registered builders.

Elevate your open plan living areas by flowing out onto a comfortable and luxurious outdoor patio. An outdoor deck or pavers can be your new retreat by extending your roofline for added shade in the summer months and enclosing the space to create an outdoor room.

Enhance your outdoor room by creating a lounge; relaxed seating and a mounted tv can allow you to enjoy the great outdoors with the bonus of modern comforts. Outdoor kitchens or service bars can complement your barbeque and add convenience to outdoor entertaining.
