2022 Trend Watch: Take the Inside Outside for Your Whole Home Remodel or New Home

After last year’s understandable inclination to expand our homes to embrace outdoor living, the trend continues this year with the focus on maximizing comfort. Spaces that feel like they could be indoors – from roomy, comfortable furniture to elements that add light, heat, and protection from the elements, redefine the meaning of “indoor” and “outdoor.” Here are some ideas to explore for your whole home remodel or new home:

Mountain View Retreat
The great room of this mountain view estate takes the concept of indoor/outdoor living to a whole new level. The 20’ glass doors can be opened and closed with the touch of a button. Sheltered from heat during the day, or gathered around the glittering fire pit as the sun sets, contented relaxation is inspired inside and out.

Coastal Outdoor Experience
The outdoor living space of this stunning coastal home now is the ultimate experience in indoor/outdoor living. A louvered roof, glass side panels, automated screens, a fireplace, and recessed infrared heating elements combine for a sense of luxurious comfort in any weather. Retractable screens and glass railings provide protection from the elements while carefully protecting the view. The kitchen can be open or separate, depending on the easy adjustment of folding glass doors.

Choose a Focal Point
Indoor and outdoor living are seamlessly unified in this La Jolla Shores home. Its verdant outdoor space works both as a peaceful oasis for intimate dinners and a stunning natural area for festive gatherings. A cozy modern seating area is layered with inviting pillows around a concrete fire bowl taking comfort into evening hours.

Connecting with nature calms the mind and is good for overall health and wellness and expanding living space to the outdoors makes your home feel more open and inviting. Our unified team of architects, designers and construction professionals can help you create your own unique vision for an outdoor living space that makes the most of indoor/outdoor San Diego living for your whole home remodel or new home.
