There’s no better way to take advantage of the awesome Phoenix climate than integrating indoor and outdoor entertaining. Dazzle our guests with a space that flows seamlessly from inside your home to the great outdoors. Read on for our favorite ideas.
Using the same flooring in an indoor space leading into an outdoor space adds a sense of continuity and invites use of both spaces while entertaining. All weather flooring is the perfect foundation for any indoor/outdoor space.
Any space that combines indoor and outdoor entertaining should have a unique waypoint to connect the two spaces. Some of our favorites are large, pivoting glass doors, hanging barn doors, or double doors that open wide and nest against the walls to create as much openness as is appropriate for any given event. You could even install carriage doors that act as removable walls!
Any space that invites indoor and outdoor entertaining should showcase the views from your space. Large windows, wraparound windows, and even art windows (think stained glass) are great choices for an indoor/outdoor space.
Make the Outside Shine
To truly make your outdoor space a part of your home, you’ll want to make it feel like a room in and of itself, with thoughtful seating and design elements like a fireplace, firepit, grill or even an outdoor entertainment center that allow your guests to enjoy being outside as much as inside.
Consider the Views
When creating an indoor/outdoor entertainment space, it’s a good idea to consider what the outside looks like from the inside and vice versa. The two views should flow together seamlessly while highlighting what’s special about each space.
