How to Create an Outdoor Living Room
You may be asking yourself, what is this whimsical concept of an outdoor living room and why should I want one? An outdoor living room (sometimes referred to as a winter garden in other cultures) is an extension of your living space designed to relax and do some light entertaining. This is an especially beautiful concept for those who enjoy the outdoors and all that nature has to offer.
When designing an outdoor living room, the main factors to take into account are the environment and the weather. If constructing one in warmer climates like South Asia, an efficient cooling system must be taken into account. A useable outdoor living room space must be compact, take the sun’s direction into account and allow fresh air for ventilation. There are a few ways to go about designing an outdoor garden:
1. Heat Reflective Glass Walls and Ceiling: These will allow you the benefit of a beautiful view and natural daylight pouring through while protecting you from the heat.
2. If you’d like a little more privacy, you can opt for a grill structure that will allow fresh air to come through while you go about your day. It is important to plan the cooling mechanism accordingly.
3. If you’re tight on space or want to try an outdoor living space before implementing it, we suggest a mesh tent structure made of white reflective material (depending on the climate). This will give you a taste of what it’s like to work and play outdoors. However, you must take into mind that this is not a permanent or preferable alternative to an outdoor garden because maintaining a tent is no easy task.
