If it were up to most homeowners, living outside closer to the clean air, magnificent landscapes and the greenery, would be a much-preferred option. However, you have to consider that this would come with severe consequences among them being rained on and constant sunburns! Which is why most people will try and get as much of the outdoors as they can into their house. You will have live plants in the house try to cut as little trees as possible around you and even have a larger window. But, there is more that you can do especially with the help of architecture.
Have an around-the-corner window
One of the methods that architects are using to get more outdoors into the house is building and designing houses that have a window at the corner. Traditionally, you will have four walls each with a window. You can break the norm by incorporating this corner window. It helps you feel like you’re part of the view and quickly becomes the highlight of your home. It is important to make sure that you capture the best scenery around your home so make sure that your corner window gives you courtside seats to all the outdoor beauty.
Create a seamless flow
Over the years, architecture has always come up with new door designs to fit the different buildings that they come up with. One of the best ways to keep your outdoors in your home is to make the transition seamless. Make it impossible for one to realize when they are going to the house. How you ask? Architecture has the answer. You have to start with a sizeable pivoted door. Then have that door paired with a back wall made of glass. That way you have an interrupted flow from the back to the front of the house. You never have to miss a ray of sunshine or a breeze of wind.
Have a private entry to the garden
Sometimes, the best way to appreciate the outdoors is to make the change so big that you can’t help but feel it. You can have a little garden designed at the back with an entrance from the master bedroom. A sliding glass door would make for a great entry point since it will also allow you to see what the garden has to offer even from the comfort of your bed. If you’re a stickler for privacy, make sure that you have a small shrub or trees fence that helps with that. These are preferable, so you don’t have to interfere with the flow.
There are other more conventional methods that you can use. Sheltering an outdoor space like a patio where you can sit and enjoy the outdoors is one of the ways to go about it. If you have a home office, you can design it in a way that allows you to see what the vast outdoors have to offer. You can also design your family room to have doors. Any of the effects that these architectural ideas has will make your connection with the outdoors much closer.
