We Kiwis have a connection with nature - it’s part of our lifestyle. So it’s no surprise that we want our homes to have a connection with the outdoors – through summer and winter. Creating the ideal getaway where you can kick back doesn't have to be difficult or costly – the trick is to choose products that are functional, stylish and durable.
Where to start? Here are some ideas …
Connect to the indoors … Outdoor living spaces that are easily accessible to indoor rooms are the most likely to get used. Design your deck or patio in a place that offers refuge, such as off the master bedroom or living room

Create patterns … You can do this in a variety of ways, including laying formal walkways using Firth Designer or Classic series pavers, creating beautiful outdoor spaces.
Create seating areas … Places that family and friends will enjoy - a quiet zone for a chat or around a table for a big dinner.

Create an outdoor heat source… If you have a fireplace inside your house, it's where you love to curl up with a good book on a quiet night or where larger groups gather on chilly days. The same is true for outdoor living spaces - a source of fire draws people in and creates a focal point
