Outdoor/Indoor Living


 

Plan on swapping the sidewalk for the woods and practically live for a sunset? Well, there is a home fit for the nature lover in you! For a percentage of home-buyers, the most important factors when buying a house is not always only how close your new home will be to the mall, public transportation, subway or highway, but to many, it is about how close it is to mother nature. To nature-lovers, ditching the concrete jungle for an actual one is the ultimate place called home.

Outdoor lovers seldom like being confined to four walls and a roof, that does not mean that those who love the great outdoors prefer living like Tarzan did. Although the conventional face-brick walled or picket fenced houses reign as the majority in the market, there are some marvellous options for semi and full-blown nature lovers.

Nature-focused homes

Many of these properties will include both the luxury of being closer to the outdoors but still contain the comfort of an indoor haven. These include homes with jungle architecture, studio homes/apartments, vega cottages, glass houses (make sure to not throw any stones from it) and pillar partitioned homes. These homes also feature modern-day tree houses, eco-friendly architecture and homes nestled deep into the forest. These examples will make sure that you make the most of your homes. Remember that the outdoors does not only mean the forest, the seaside is also the perfect location for those who enjoy a morning dip and who love listening to the waves crash against the shore.

Partly nature focused homes

If you are not opting for a house that is entirely in the woods but still includes a splash of your inner eco-friendly self then including minimalistic features to your home will do the trick. Think a splash of green and a hint of brown. Walls of windows, trees growing through the floor and architecture that blends seamlessly into the landscape. There are even city dwellings that bring nature indoors, with green life in the walls or coming through the floor. Today we even have the luxury of including little ornaments that reflect the beauty of the outdoors, creating the perfect oasis with no need to move the table or take down the shelf.

If you didn’t consider yourself a nature lover before, you might change your mind after envisioning where you could move or what you could do with the space that you have. This could see yourself turning your home into the ultimate getaway without having to open the gate.
