Unfortunately, we tend to treat our homes as if they were just a nest. It keeps us warm, dry and comfortable. But there’s a huge difference between existing and living. Ask yourself, are you living in your home or are you just existing? Do you take pride in your decor and interior design style, or is it that you don’t really care? You will spend one-third of your life at home at the very least. That is an incredible amount of time. For decades and decades in one lifetime, human beings will be surrounded by four walls. Is that natural? Is that healthy for your mind? Just like most people, you’re probably leaning toward the answer ‘no’. You’re right, you should be spending more time outside. But that doesn’t mean you need to literally leave your house.
Lifestyle = A life of style
Your back garden is not free real estate. It came with the house, you bought and paid for it. So why aren’t you using it? To have a proper lifestyle you need a life of style. That’s why you should implement one of these Lifestyle Patios whereby you gain more access to the outdoors while in the comfort of your own home. Check out the flyover roof patio, whereby you gain a large outdoor hard-surface space to place a dining table and chairs so you can enjoy lunch and or dinner al-fresco. The box cutter roof patio style gives you added light and height; a little more natural light that the flyover roof style. If you want total freedom, consider the free standing patio which isn’t connected to the house’s structure. Any of these styles will make you want to sit outside more, enjoy nature and wildlife while in the company of friends and family.
In your luxury pad
So you want to get out of the house more often and use your garden space for relaxing, but you don’t want to always be outside? You’re not the only one who feels this way. That’s why building a conservatory might be your answer. Conservatories are amazing spaces that can be turned into your private luxury pad. Yes, it will still be a standing structure with a hard-surface floor. But, you can have any kind of interior design you want. Large bean bag chairs are fantastic because they allow you to lie back, be low to the floor and take a nap all while looking up at a clear blue sky. Glass roofs are highly recommended because the conservatory is about being connected with nature while still enjoying a warm comfortable living quarters.
A garden house
Some might say it’s the ultimate spare room, while others say it’s the perfect little getaway from the rest of the house. Just like a conservatory except, a luxury garden house is not connected to the main home. It’s separate, away from everything else, giving your privacy and a different environment in which to collect your thoughts.
It’s not uncommon to become tired of the same old four walls. Your home can become boring and tiresome. That’s why you need to start using your garden space as an enjoyable area where you can get outside and relax; yet still remain comfortable.
