An out­door space done right can be a stand­out fea­ture of any house or apart­ment. Whether it’s a place to en­ter­tain, a re­treat or ca­sual din­ing area, it can eas­ily be­come one of the draw­cards of your home.

For Shan­non Vos, in­te­rior de­signer and for­mer win­ner of The Block, a great out­door space doesn’t have to cost a for­tune and can be added to over time to en­hance its prac­ti­cal­ity and ap­peal.

“If you have the room, it’s great to di­vide your out­door space into zones – ide­ally one for chill­ing out and one for din­ing,” says Vos.

“I also ad­vise to keep your out­door spa­ces sim­i­lar in colour and tone to your in­door spa­ces to in­crease the flow from in­side out,” he says.

“Re­peat colours, tim­bers, tones, tex­tures and fin­ishes to make your in­door/out­door aes­thetic work. Out­door light­ing will also help to make the space more ap­peal­ing.”

“With sum­mer here, now’s the time to up­date and make the most of your out­door area.” SHAN­NON VOS, IN­TE­RIOR DE­SIGNER
