As homeowners look to remodel, a main concern is making sure that the entire house flows, in both layout and design. Now more than ever, homeowners are including their outdoor spaces in this flow. They want to bring indoor comforts out into the fresh air, often choosing to use amenities like fireplaces and couches on their new patios and decks. Other homeowners extend this flow further by creating a second living room complete with outdoor kitchens, TVs, and stereo systems.

But bridging the gap between home sweet home and the great outdoors is difficult, so homeowners rely heavily on professional remodelers to bring their vision to life. Some remodelers nail this flow between indoors and outdoors so well that it’s difficult to tell where one ends and the other begins.

From screened-in outdoor living rooms to al fresco urban spaces, we’ve collected some of the coolest outdoor oases for any landscape, home style, and taste. Look through the gallery above to get ideas for your next remodel.
