Summer LovingPublished on 3rd July 2013
It’s never too late to fall in love with your home again, and a side extension can be the perfect place to start. With Apropos Outdoor Living you can turn a patch of neglected ground into a fabulous and functional space. All it takes is a little imagination.
The first step towards getting the best from your garden room is to decide what you want from it. Are you looking for a rain-proof barbeque area, a sheltered spot for the kids to play, or a luxury room to make your own? Do you dream of trailing grapevines along a beautiful glazed pergola, or is alfresco dining key? Like any other room in the house, a garden structure is only what you make it.
With Apropos Outdoor Living, we can supply you with the lifestyle accessory to suit your needs and your budget; stylish single-glazed constructions that will fit in with your home aesthetic and maximise the potential space available to you. Personalisation is where you come in. An empty glass box can seem an imposing object to make your own, but with a little creativity marvels can be achieved.
Choose furniture to suit your style – if you don’t like the look or feel of the space that you’ve created you’re never going to be able to enjoy it as you should. Patios needn’t be about barbeques and table sets; if you want a banana hammock, have one! We can’t think of a better place to lie back and enjoy the sunshine.
You’ve heard of glamping? How about glamorising your garden room? – a splash of colour, gorgeous rugs, pillows, cushions, throws and maybe a chandelier suspended from one of the aluminium roof struts; an Apropos lean-to with fixed side glazing and bi-fold doors could become your very own Bedouin retreat.
Lighting – candles and lanterns can create the most atmospheric of spaces, making the outdoors feel greater and wilder than it is, turning your little space into a comely haven.
Soften the edges – plants are a great way to bring a homely feel to any room, blurring the boundaries between indoors and out while taking the angles away from the inevitable corners.
Warmth – even in summer our nights can get chilly, a chiminea or firepit is not only an attractive focal-point, but adds heat to a veranda, extending the functionality long beyond May-September; mulled wine and toasted marshmallows work wonderfully when winter star-gazing.
Accessorise –From sharp and sleek to shabby-chic, if you coordinate and theme your structure it will feel consistent, comfortable, and yours. Check out your local market for tables, chairs, outdoor grills and water features – upcycling offers unique and beautiful opportunities.
In short, an Apropos Outdoor Living structure can really be anything that you want it to be; we’ll guarantee form, you just need to choose the function that will help you to love summer as much as we do.
