Imagine stepping into your own piece of outdoor paradise from the comfort of your own home. The idea of bringing the inside out not only enhances your living space but also offers a space for much-needed relaxation and entertainment.

It can be difficult to strike a balance between our time spent indoors and out enjoying the benefits of nature. Adding an outdoor oasis to your home gives you the best of both worlds.

Outdoor Living Spaces Offer a Breath of Fresh Air

What is your idea of an outdoor oasis? A peaceful place to rejuvenate? A fun area to recreate in the fresh air? A space to draw inspiration and be creative?

The ideal design for outdoor living looks different for everyone—but the benefits are the same.
Incorporating the natural world into our living spaces is transformative when we embrace the beauty of the outdoors and experience the healing power of nature.

Design Your Perfect Outdoor Haven

When planning new outdoor living spaces, we need to incorporate function and aesthetic appeal in our design. How can you achieve both?

Ask yourself what’s necessary for the elements to function and what’s needed for the space to allow the natural aspects you desire to be front and center. Do you need to avoid obstructing the view of a scenic landscape? Are there fragrant plants that need to be preserved? How can you ensure the sound of a nearby waterway is not muffled by new construction?

Outdoor Oasis Design Ideas

You know you’d like to bring the inside out but need some inspiration—here are some ideas to bring to the table as you plan your renovation.

All-in-one Living Space

Start by envisioning a spacious outdoor living area that serves as an extension of your home. This space can accommodate a variety of activities, from quiet reading sessions to lively gatherings. Comfortable seating arrangements, cozy fireplaces, and elegant lighting can all contribute to an ambiance that invites relaxation and connection.

Gourmet Kitchen

More than a barbecue or grill area, consider a state-of-the-art outdoor kitchen equipped with high-end appliances, ample counter space and plenty of room for you and your guests to savor a delicious meal—all while being surrounded by nature.

Fire Pit

Nothing is quite as inviting as a warm and glowing fire pit with comfortable seating and refuge from the elements. A fire pit provides a focal point for gathering to share stories, roast marshmallows and enjoy the light of the stars in the night sky.

Swimming Pool

Swimming pools are not only a source of outdoor entertainment for children—they offer refreshment from the heat of the day, a tranquil spot to float and unwind, and an excellent way to exercise right at home.

Pool House with Comfortable Lounging Areas and Bathroom

A pool house extends the comfort of your pool by offering a retreat from the sun, a place to change, and a restroom for added convenience. Add comfy lounging areas by the water’s edge and a gaming area for fun when it’s time to dry off.


Never find yourself short of refreshments—consider an outdoor bar that is fully stocked with everything you need to stay hydrated and enjoy some adult beverages.

Making It All a Reality

Creating an outdoor oasis involves translating your idea of an ideal outdoor living space into reality. It’s about envisioning a space that resonates with your lifestyle and preferences.
