Entertaining family and friends will be much more enjoyable if your home has a strong connection between the indoors and out. To create this connection, many homeowners are opting for oversized glass doors that, when opened, remove the traditional division between interior spaces and yards.

Nearly the entire back wall of this Melbourne, Australia home opens up to the backyard deck and garden. The removal of the traditional division between indoors and out makes it so residents and guests can mingle and flow between the spaces as if they were one. I like how the deck provides a smooth transition into the outdoors, but the rest of the yard sits on a lower level.

With accordion-like glass doors pushed aside, the interior living and dining areas of this house flow out onto the patio. I love that the color of the interior flooring and the exterior paving are similar, adding to the connection between the indoors and out.

If you would like to achieve this effect at your home NanaWall is a great option. NanaWall panels will help you seamlessly blend the indoor and outdoor spaces of your residence.

Another, less modern approach to creating an indoor-outdoor connection, is to install three sets of French doors along the same wall. When opened, you will get the same strong sense of connection and flow, but with a little more charm. Notice how the interior flooring and exterior paving are quite similar. When trying to achieve fluidity between an interior space and a patio you should always avoid abrupt material changes.
