Hard as it may be to believe today, there was a time when no importance was attached to having an outdoor space inside one's home. Terraces were no longer a paved transition area to the interior of the house, while gardens were luxuries reserved for the owners of grand villas.
Fortunately, the Mediterranean lifestyle has evolved to the point that today we cannot conceive of a single home without having an outdoor space: gardens, glazed porches, terraces, patios or roof terraces.
At PATIO, we aim to equip your outdoor space down to the last detail, so that you can enjoy it as you deserve, from a modular corner sofa to sun loungers or parasols. If you are one of the few sceptics who still doubt the importance of having a piece of home outdoors, here are some advantages that might change your mind.
Leisure and sports.
Make the most of your outdoor space to get fit. You don't need to set up a gym, with a ping-pong table, a game of darts, a football goal or a basketball hoop you will see how you can have fun and exercise your body in the meantime.
Forget for a moment the stress of everyday life, work issues, traffic jams... Take a deep breath and let your mind go blank for a few seconds while you breathe fresh air. If you also have plants, it has been proven scientifically that their daily care produces a relaxing effect that helps to combat depression or anxiety.
Urban vegetable gardens are becoming more and more fashionable, where we can produce our food, fruit and greens healthily and ecologically. You don't need to have a large area of land, a couple of pots or planters can serve as a starting point. You will see how you will rediscover the flavours you thought you had lost.
You can also create your solar garden to install solar panels and reduce your electricity bill. It's not very aesthetically pleasing but at the end of the month, your wallet will definetely appreciate it.
Children love to play, run, jump and get dirty and having an outdoor space is the ideal place for kids to burn off all their energy. It is not even necessary to have a large swimming pool surrounded by sunbeds with adjustable sunshades, sometimes they have a better time in a simple inflatable pool or with a set of trampolines. Try also making swings or circuits with wood, they are sure to have a great time.
Family & friends.
When we want to get together with our family or friends, our outdoor space is the ideal place to do so. A good barbecue for the barbecue is a must. And if there are more people than expected, there are solutions such as extendable garden tables, folding deckchairs or multifunctional outdoor stools.
Aesthetics and decoration.
The outdoor space of our home is an extension of our indoor space, which is why we are paying more and more attention to ensuring that the decorative elements are in harmony in both rooms. If we have opted for a modern, natural, classic, oriental or nordic style indoors, we will also try to reflect it in our terrace or garden so that they follow the same line.
Work or studies.
In the open air, we feel at ease and relaxed. This is why many people find a creative outlet here that is denied to them in the impersonality of an office block. It is our own zen garden of wisdom.
If you are studying it is always beneficial to take advantage of natural light and fresh air. Choose an aluminium outdoor table, a comfortable fibre armchair and a parasol to protect you. You'll see how your grades go up.
Having a properly equipped and furnished terrace or garden will increase the value of your house. When selling or renting your property, having an outdoor space is always a sure value that will be preserved over time.
And you, what other advantages do you find in your outdoor space? We'll read you in the comments.
