Floor-to-Ceiling Windows & Doors

One of the biggest trends right now and one of the best ways to create a seamless indoor/outdoor experience is with large, floor-to-ceiling windows that double as doors. Even when they are closed, you will still have an unobstructed view of your outdoor living space and if you’re entertaining, you can just open the doors up and let people come and go as they please. You can even opt for pocket doors so the windows will be out of sight completely when you open them.

If you’re not big on entertaining, you can still utilize this space as a place to rest and relax when you have had a long day. You can soak up the ambiance of your backyard and even if the weather isn’t cooperating, you will still have a stunning view of your outdoor spaces. Large windows that double as doors to your patio space is one trend that is sure to stick around.

Outdoor Kitchens

For those that are wanting to truly make the most out of their indoor/outdoor space, you may want to incorporate an outdoor kitchen. You can upgrade the traditional grilling area and create a full kitchen space that will have all that you need. With an outdoor kitchen area, you won’t have to worry about running back and forth to your kitchen and you will be able to fully participate in conversations with your guests. Even if you aren’t entertaining, you can still gather with your family in this space and enjoy a meal outdoors when the weather is nice.
