A designer trick to make tiny outdoor spaces look larger is to accentuate height. This modest 9-foot-by-10-foot covered deck seems much larger than it actually is.

This home is designed by renowned architect Lesuisse. The interiors are mostly white to match the light-filled location of the residence. In this living room, huge sliding doors join indoor and outdoor spaces with white curtains offering more privacy when needed.
Great for enjoying warm nights with family or entertaining a large group, the French doors open up to the patio outside, a space that offers even more seating and acts as an extension of the great room in HGTV Dream Home 2015.

Both buildings have an indoor outdoor feel, with oversized sliding doors instantly connecting rooms to patios and balconies.
