Frequently Asked Questions
An outdoor living room is really whatever you want it to be. Whether your goal is to have a place to entertain, a secluded space away from it all, a covered kitchen area or simply somewhere to sit back and enjoy the beauty of being outside, there’s an outdoor living room design for you.
The location of your outdoor living room can either be conveniently attached to your house, or a separate structure in your back garden. Your outdoor room can be complementary to your house with a similar style, colours and materials, or it can be something completely unique like an outdoor movie space or beach house.
An outdoor room doesn’t have to be weather-proof but if you want to enjoy all year round use, a permanent covering is the best option for you. If a summer beach house or a winter firepit area is more what you’re after, your outdoor room doesn’t need to be an enclosed and weather-proof room, but simply zoned in a different way to make it a separate space.
We have outdoor living room plans and designs to help you get the most out of your outdoor living area.
The only limit to your outdoor living space is your imagination. Remember, your outdoor living room doesn’t have to have a weatherproof roof or walls, it can be an entirely open area in your garden but landscaped and ‘zoned’ to create a different functionality to the other spaces in your garden.
The best outdoor living room is the one created just for you, but here are some outdoor living room design ideas:
- Dining and entertaining area

An outdoor room can cost as much or as little as your budget will allow. An outdoor living area may be much cheaper and quicker to build than an structural extension to your home and you’ll get year-round use and enjoyment from it.
There are no hard and fast rules for what an outdoor living space should have. You can incorporate anything from a full outdoor kitchen, comfortable chairs, even a TV or screen for movies, or keep it simple with a small patio area, BBQ and seating. You could add bench/seating and an outdoor fit pit or an outdoor water feature to create a tranquil setting. The options are endless! The features you choose, and your available space will have the largest impact on the cost of your project.
A more substantial outdoor room will need to be built by an experienced and licensed builder and you may need building approval.
When you’re considering designing an outdoor living room there are various factors to consider.
