People inspired to integrate gardens with interiors

Homeowners have become motivated to combine the exterior of their living spaces with the interior, resulting in spaces – such as conservatories and terraces – that are extensions of the home and also the perfect introduction to the garden.

An article on online resource explains that numerous different features can be incorporated into such a space, including informal seating spots and dining areas as well as a station for a laptop if people can work from home.

It suggests that suitable decor will provide a space with a sense of flair and character.

"This should be a continuation of your interior style to create a real sense of fluidity. If your home is modern and contemporary, think about using edgy materials such as metal and concrete as a canvas," the piece suggests.

Meanwhile, the BBC suggests that plants such as potted shrubs can help to brighten up a drab-looking patio area.
