During the summer months it’s all about taking the indoors out, taking the kitchen and dining experience outside with dinners in the sunshine and BBQ’s at the weekend. Some even convert an outdoor living area where they can sit with a beer or glass of vino and relax in the evening. Unfortunately in the UK this option needs to be either waterproof covered or easily transported back indoors and now the winter months are upon the time has come to move back indoors completely.
It may be cold and rainy outside but what’s stopping us bringing some of the outdoors inside this winter?
If you’re opting for a revamp then think about incorporating natural materials into your kitchen, wooden cabinets and worktops and slate tiles are a great way of giving a touch of au natural to your kitchen. Find kitchen idea inspiration for the autumn months by incorporating the colours outdoors. Oranges, yellows and fiery reds are great way of adding warmth to the room and of course in the kitchen it’s all about bringing in the fresh seasonal ingredients to cook up a storm.
Bringing the outdoors inside in the living room is as easy as getting some logs and throwing them on the fire. There’s nothing better than the scent of fresh wood burning on the roaring fire whilst you snuggle up on the sofa all warm and cosy. This of course is only an option for those of us with real fires and if you don’t fancy buying one just to accommodate your logs then there are lots of other nifty ideas. It’s coming up to Christmas so what better way to bring nature into your home than with a real Christmas tree or a beautiful reef.
If you already have one you’ll know that a conservatory is a great way of feeling closer to the outdoors whilst remaining safe and sound in the warmth of your own home. In the winter when the sun is shining but remains bitterly cold a conservatory is a great place to sit and soak up the rays whilst keeping warm. Many people also find the conservatory a therapeutic place to sit and listen to the pitter, patter of the rain and at no time is it better than when the snow settles and creates you’re very own indoor igloo.
