In this amazing makeover by landscape designer Ahmed Hassan for HGTV, a custom deck doubles the family's available living space. Under the cedar pergola, custom daybeds invite serious lounging (and napping).
The home boasts an outdoor living space so comfortably furnished it feels like the indoors. A large daybed and two chairs are nestled by a stately fireplace and flat-screen TV for entertaining or relaxing.
The homeowners wanted an outdoor space they could use for entertaining throughout the day, so designers proposed situating the space on a covered patio to provide protection from the daytime sunlight. At night, extra lighting is put in place around the space so that it can be used throughout the day and into the evening.
Ceiling beams break up the concrete, while an outdoor rug sets the foundation for comfort. Drapery provides coziness, but also privacy for this space, just off the master bedroom. Designer Bea Pila incorporated daybeds and sofas, as opposed to individual upright seating, to promote relaxation and connection. Tree trunk elements were incorporated to take away from a matched set look.
This unique indoor/outdoor patio is furnished with antique 19th-century beds and soft, Colombian textiles. A wall of windows made from reclaimed antique pieces salvaged from old buildings allows for maximum light and a beautiful view of the outdoors.
This modern tiny home uses wall to wall windows to make the space feel large and bright. Light colored maple wood makes up the floors, ceilings and cabinets and reflects the natural light of the outdoors, giving the space an open feeling.
Relax and play in ultimate comfort in this game room designed in shades of teal. Large double doors open out onto an outdoor patio space while indoors has a Ping-Pong table and luxurious hanging daybeds on which to relax.
The family-friendly home is designed to seamlessly blend the indoor and outdoor living. Comfortable wicker chaise lounges and daybeds surround the swimming pool, and the manicured lawn is surrounded by lush flower beds that bring color to the backyard.
