With the digital age that we now live in becoming bigger and bigger as time passes, the need for real, human interactions and connections has never been greater and going into the new year, your outdoor living space can play a vital role in making these connections happen.
The once simple patio with weatherproof furniture and bbq, which has worked for so many people for so many years, just isn't enough anymore. People now want a comfortable space where they are able to relax and connect with family and friends that match and in most cases surpass, the comfort of their indoor spaces. With this in mind, we take a look at some of the predominant outdoor living trends that can be expected to continue gaining popularity in 2019.
Combine with Nature

One of the most exciting up-and-coming trends is to combine or 'entangle' hardscape installations with the surrounding nature and landscape, which can be achieved in a number of different ways. For example, installing a detached veranda in an area of your garden surrounded by beautiful greenery or placing plants and flowers inside to create a natural environment within it.

2019 will most definitely see many homeowners continue following the trend of transforming their outdoor living spaces to match the clean lines of contemporary design found within their inside spaces. People often associate textures and colours with contemporary design, so we can expect this to continue over the next 12 months. Another aspect of the contemporary trend focuses on monochromatic colour schemes with bright pops of colour.
Transitioning Inside to Outside

One of the biggest outdoor living trends for 2019 is distorting the line between indoors and outdoors. This usually involves a lot more than just patio doors and windows, with a number of our SunSpaces providing the perfect opportunity to achieve just this! A garden room is a perfect solution if you're looking to extend your outside living area and with a number of additional features available such as lighting and heating, you are able to make the transition feel even easier.
Grey & Greige Tones

From light grey to darker charcoal colours, grey continued to dominate indoor and outdoor colour trends in 2018 and we do not expect this to slow down anytime soon! However, a recent trend has started which sees colours leaning back towards warmer tones, resulting in the rise of 'greige', a fine blend of grey and beige tones. Homeowners are expected to utilise these tones into new hardscapes, taking advantage of its ability to work extremely well with both cool and warm design palettes.
