Australians love to entertain at home and indoor-outdoor living spaces are becoming an increasingly popular feature to add living space – and breathing space – whether it’s a seamless transition from outside to inside or bringing nature inside. Here are five inspired ideas to think about as the warmer weather approaches. 

Open-plan living
Open-plan living is perfect for creating a multipurpose space and bringing the family together. Consider creating an outdoor zone specifically for entertaining that includes a second kitchen rather than simply a BBQ. Check out the Beechwood Homes’ Asti 3 at HomeWorld Warnervale which features an optional outdoor kitchen.

Wide doors and windows
Doors and windows have the ultimate power to transform the flow of any living space by bringing in natural light and ventilation. For both function and a chameleon-like aesthetic, look to bi-fold doors, as featured in this McDonald Jones Homes’ Garden Retreat, that naturally open up the kitchen and lounge room, and nicely frame the outdoors. Check it out at our Kellyville village.

Central courtyard
A central courtyard can make a striking difference to how a home interacts with light and space. Take Eagle Homes’ Peacock modern spin on the courtyard, which skillfully interlinks its living spaces through a private, central open space. Choose evergreen plants to keep the look year ‘round. Visit HomeWorld Leppington to see for yourself.

Plants
Indoor plants are so on trend! Inject some green into your life all year round with plants that are suitable for both indoor areas in pots or create a living green wall. One stunning option is to have your kitchen splashback as a window to the garden, like the Vogue Homes’ Sevilla on display at our Leppington village.

Feature piece
To make your indoor-outdoor area even more appealing, invest in a calming, nature-inspired feature piece. Head to Kellyville and have a look at the outdoor lounge area of Wisdom Homes’ Serenity 28, with its zen-like water feature and vine-covered wall creating a welcoming and restful space.

Ask the friendly builders at our villages for more clever ideas and expert advice.
