One of the great things about being a homeowner is being able to make improvements however you see fit! You have no one to answer to accept maybe your partner.
One cool feature I would love to have is being able to mix indoor space with some outdoor space. Who doesn’t want to be able to throw a great party. Take a look at some homes that have successfully merged the two!
This home does a great job or bring the two together. With sliders with the kitchen countertop and full door sliders the rest of the way this is a seamless way to bring both spaces together. The use of the the space is very well thought out with extra “bar space” coming on the opposite side of the countertop.
This property took the dining room and merged it with a beautiful backyard. With the doors open this can be a very fun and livley party but with the doors closed it can still maintain its intimate feeling for dining.
This has to be one of my top choices. Not only has this home made their living room and kitchen feel like open big open space but they added some amazing architectural design to modernize the space. With a high point in the ceiling they added metal beams with a black paint and a garage door to bring the spaces together. With tons of natural light this living room will always be shining with or without the door open.
