The outdoors is where we go to relax and be with nature, a place to entertain family and friends e.t.c. While a lot of us might think it's just enough to design the interiors of our homes, we shouldn't neglect the exteriors. Like I wrote in my "styling your hallways and stairs" post, first impressions matter a lot. The outdoors include; porch/balcony, gardens and sometimes the swimming pool area. I say sometimes because some people own indoor swimming pools.
Your driveway let's not forget also constitutes part of the outhouse even your garage sometimes depending on its location. So you see there's a lot to do do when it comes to designing your outdoors. It's not just about planting a few flowers and using some interlocking tiles for your driveway, it's about creating a space that wows anyone and everyone.
Following this post, we shall discuss the following topics
- Styling your porch/balcony
- Styling your gardens
- The swimming area
- Styling the courtyard/patio
- How to design your garage (this will be taken with the attic and basement designing)
- Styling your driveway
