A strong indoor/outdoor connection in your new home will give you more functional living space and make it seem like your home is much larger and roomier. Sage Builders LLC suggests the following ways to create connections between the outdoor and indoor spaces and bring in abundant light, improve indoor ventilation and provide you with easy, comfortable access to your outdoor living areas.

  • Reduce blockages and improve flow: Install a glass wall with a pivoting glass door to create a feeling of flow between the inside and outside. Improve the connection by using the same type of flooring material, like stone, for the inside and any external decks or floors.
  • Include corner windows:¬†Break from tradition if the view is right and turn that usual walled corner into a beautiful¬†corner window. This unique feature can easily become a room’s focal point while helping make the indoor/outdoor connection you’re looking for.
  • Create a covered space outdoors: Design a porch or deck with adequate coverage from the weather to make an additional space where you can enjoy the outdoors even if it’s raining or snowing.
  • Enclose breezeways with glass walls: Putting glass walls in breezeways will let in plenty of natural light, both in the walkway itself and adjoining rooms. Plant a lush garden outside the walls to make the connection with nature closer.
  • Put doors in a family room or walk-out garage: Large accordion or similar style doors can let you completely open up a family room, recreation room or walk-out garage. When these doors are open, the indoor/outdoor connection between the two areas is complete.
