As an example, an oak garden room could be the perfect complement to your patio area. If you also install a through view, you blur the lines between your interior and exterior living spaces and create a genuine sense of connectivity to your surroundings.

More traditional interior design embraces open-plan living. The broken-plan trend keeps the open concept alive, but it also breaks up your space into more functional zoning.

5. The Modern Loggia?
