How to Create the Perfect Outdoor Living Space This Summer

As we start to enjoy the company of our friends and family, it’s more important than ever that our outdoor areas are as inviting and welcoming as they can be. Just as with indoors, there are a number of things to consider when planning the perfect outdoor living space, from colour schemes to accessories and material choices. To help you with your planning, we’ve put together our key tips on how to create your perfect outdoor space.

Use a Mixture of Natural Materials

Here at Lundhs, we are of course big fans of natural materials. Our stones are 100% natural and as a result work beautifully when paired with other natural textures and materials. Our approach to designing a welcoming outdoor space would be to work with nature as much as you can, whether that’s taking in the natural landscape of your garden or incorporating local materials. An outdoor area that embraces nature is more likely to exude a comforting ambience as it seamlessly blends into its surroundings.

In this outdoor kitchen and dining area, the wooden pergola structure and wood panelling combine with decking, a Lundhs Real Stone surface and rustic accessories to create an outdoor space that is all-at-once stylish and welcoming. Graced with beautiful surroundings of trees and Norwegian landscape, the alfresco kitchen space shows how to perfectly work with nature to create a wonderful exterior entertaining area.
