Being outdoors in a peaceful nature setting is relaxing. Just being outside and close to the sky, earth, water, and plants can make us feel calmer and more refreshed. In the Dallas area, there are many ways that homeowners can bring a touch of the outdoors into their own homes.

French doors are an excellent way to bring the outdoors into your home.

One of the best ways to bring a bit of nature into your home is to have large screened windows that allow natural light to flood into rooms, and that can be opened up to let in the fresh air. French doors leading to your outdoor space are a stylish way to connect the outdoors with the indoors, and create a sense of spaciousness. Large windows or doors that look out on your garden, pool area, or plant-filled patio are not only scenic, but also add a touch of nature to the room. Wood frames or shutters on windows can also contribute to bringing the outdoors inside.

Instead of using man-made flooring, which can often feel a bit cold, try using natural materials. Wood, cork and other natural materials are flooring choices that make a room feel warm and inviting. You can expand on this and use natural materials for your furniture as well. Furniture and textiles made from hemp, jute, rattan and wicker are great ways to bring a touch of nature into your home. Using the same natural materials (and colors) in your outdoor view as you have indoors provides an uninterrupted flow and sense of continuity.

Adding natural materials in the architectural elements of your home contributes to the feeling of nature’s calmness. Exposed beams overhead and rock fireplaces are good ways to bring a touch of nature indoors while not disrupting your décor. Kitchen countertops with granite, marble or wood can create a natural feel to your workspace. Shower enclosures and bathtubs can be surrounded by natural materials such as rock, brick, and wood to make the room relaxing and warm.

Of course, adding a conservatory or outdoor kitchen and dining area that is connected to the main part of your home is a wonderful way to bring nature into your living space. And, don’t forget about foliage plants! A variety of indoor potted plants or trees make any home feel welcoming. Plants provide an excellent and natural way to keep indoor air clean and provide more oxygen.
