How to make this narrow outdoor area into a wow factor not an eye sore
June 16, 2013 in Design Dilemma
We are renovating our house and we have come across a bit of a challenge and would love some thoughts and ideas. As you walk up the stairs to our open living room/ kitchen area (modern with white walls, wooden floor boards) we have a very small narrow outdoor area. It is only about 1m wide by 2.5m long and hosts the air con unit which is terribly ugly. It has clear perspects which is approx 1.7m high to let the morning sun in and to keep the room private. I've tried to grow some plants in this area but they don't get much sun so they haven't gone too well. We won't use this area because on the other side of the room we have a massive terrace but it would be great to have something in this area to create a wow factor. I would love if anyone has any thoughts or ideas as my partner and I can't decide what to do.
