The barrier between the indoor and outdoor area is blurred and blend together. Right from open air kitchen to recliners, everything can be arranged in the outdoor space to provide an aesthetic ambience.
See the world: With open area concepts dominating, what can render a better way to see the outside world other than large size glass paned windows and doors.

This not only presents the options for high energy conservation as it permeates natural light to seep in, but also connects both indoor and outdoor through a safe barrier.
Healthy ideas: Along with energy conservation, the other trend that is fast catching up is healthy environment through application of non-volatile organic compound paints. With senior citizens and kids occupying the house, there can’t be second opinion for using healthier options.
