The way your outdoor space is designed is just as important as your interior, because it adds to the beauty of your home. Being able to relax and enjoy your patio and outdoor area on beautiful summer nights or chilly winter mornings is what makes your house a home. South Africa has some of the best weather in the world – use it! You should feel like you are on a permanent vacay whenever you step outside.
Make your outdoor space a continuation of your indoor space; the two should flow and tell a story. The same things that you look for indoors for comfort and relaxation should be used outdoors too. Go for soft, plush furniture, with plenty of puffy pillows. Weather resistant fabrics and materials are essential for the outdoors.
Your patio could be closed off by crystal clear glass doors or old-fashioned shutters, for an intimate evening setting. This will make your space multi-functional, whatever the weather. Warm it up on the chilly nights with space heaters, or cool it down on hot nights with misty fans. Prepare for your guests with a gorgeous patio table and chairs for those night-time dinner parties. This area is for fun, so have a jol.
Fill your garden with plenty of plants and flowers. Succulents are all the rage these days – grown them everywhere, they are so easy to maintain. Make a cute pathway for those dreamy walks in the garden. Dig out a fire pit or build a fireplace for lekker braais and bonfires. Why not build an outdoor bar to add some beers to those braai’s.
