Happiness begins in your own backyard.



In the craziness of modern life, finding calm places at your home can bring peace and reassurance. When considering remodeling, blending the inside of your home with the outdoors creates a space that encourages serenity. The harmonious connection between the two spaces transforms your home into the ultimate relaxation retreat and embraces the beauty of nature.  

Whether you want to revamp your living room, kitchen, bedroom, or bath, connecting these spaces to nature forms an atmosphere that is inviting throughout the entirety of your home. We will explore many ways to embrace the beauty of the outside world and how you can bring it into your own home.  

A Welcoming Touch 

The journey to connect your home to the outside begins at the entrance. Design a warm and inviting pathway to your front door with plants, flowers, and well-maintained landscaping. Create a seamless transition between your outdoor space and the interior by using similar color schemes, materials, and design themes from the indoors.  

     Tip: Water can create a soothing atmosphere, incorporating a fountain or a peaceful waterfall in your entrance will drown out the noise of the city and help you connect with nature.  

Power of Natural Light

Transforming your outside space into an extension of your home can be achieved by incorporating larger windows with screens and sliding glass doors in strategic locations. Doing so infuses your living spaces with warmth while inviting in the breeze of the outdoors. Picture waking up to the lush green vistas just beyond your windows, listening to the birds, or watching a late summer sunset from the comfort of your living room.  

     Tip: Identify key areas in your home where you spend the most time, such as your kitchen or study. Ensure these spaces have prominent outdoor views. This simple adjustment can make a significant difference in your daily life. 

An Extension of Indoor Comfort 

Why limit the concept of a living space to the confines of your home? During the remodeling process, consider expanding your living areas to the outdoors. Designing a spacious patio or deck that connects to your indoor living room creates a cohesive flow between the two spaces. While still experiencing the comforts of home; a patio, deck, or terrace allows you to enjoy the fresh air as you relax or entertain guests.   

     Tip: Consider incorporating comfortable and weather-resistant outdoor furniture, fire pits, and cooking facilities to enhance your outdoor living experience. Whether it is sipping morning coffee or stargazing at night, these outdoor havens will become the ultimate hangout spot to unwind.  

Connection to Greenery

To bring your outdoor space to its full potential, incorporate green walls and vertical gardens into your backyard. These living walls will not only look stunning but also provide a refreshing garden oasis. 


  1. Try experimenting with several types of plants, from small bushes to full trees, and let the greenery breathe life into your outdoor living space.  

  2. Consider adding a meditation nook with comfortable seating and a water feature to create a peaceful retreat where you can connect with nature.  

  3. Make sure to go for native plants in your landscaping to support the local ecosystem, requiring less maintenance, and making them a sustainable choice. This can help design your garden to be both aesthetically pleasing and ecologically beneficial. 

Blending your remodeled home with an inviting outdoor space is a transformative process that elevates your living experience and builds a strong connection with nature. From extending outdoor living areas to creating garden sanctuaries, the possibilities for natural serenity are endless.
