Indoors-outdoors gives you plenty of choice when it comes to how you can utilise your beautiful Indian Sandstone paving slabs. So, what exactly is the indoors-outdoors trend, and what does it it involve?
What is the indoors-outdoors trend?
As we’ve mentioned above, the basic idea behind this trend is to blur the boundaries between your indoor living space, and your garden. This design offers you an open, expansive feel which shines a spotlight on both your living room and garden aesthetic. A beautiful hybrid of style and practicality, there’s a reason this trend has only increased in popularity since it first burst onto the social media scene a few years ago.
How to achieve the indoors-outdoors look
When crafting the perfect indoors-outdoors design scheme, there are a few elements which you need to pay close attention to if you want to get the full effect. For starters, we advise that you opt for large-surface windows and modern glass walls, as these will help to eliminate the boundaries between your living space and your garden.
It’s also important to be consistent when blending the look of your furniture. To achieve the indoors-outdoors look, be sure to carry over the same design elements from your indoor space. Whether it’s minimalist, chic, or more traditional, your outdoor furniture must match up with your indoor design.
We’d also advise taking extra care when selecting the type of paving slabs you use to decorate the floor of your indoor area, leading out into your outdoor space, as this plays a key role in the achieving the ideal indoors-outdoors effect.
