How to Make Your Home Stand Out with a Techo-Bloc Outdoor Living Room

Your home is your sanctuary. Shouldn’t you be able to relax and unwind both inside and outside of your house? Making the decision to design and install a gorgeous outdoor living room with Techo-Bloc materials will allow you to enjoy more time in the fresh air while making your home stand out and increasing your overall property value.

If this sounds good to you, we’re here to help make your dreams come true. Today’s post will provide you with inspirational ideas for constructing a spectacular Techo-Bloc outdoor living room of your very own.

Why Techo-Bloc?

As an NJ homeowner, you’ve got a lot of options in terms of the materials you can work with to construct an outdoor living space. Why should you be interested in Techo-Bloc?

As one of the top manufacturers of landscaping materials in the world, Techo-Bloc is known for quality, variety, reliability and affordability. Whether you’re looking to install a patio floor for your living room, a recessed seating area with a fire pit, a stunning fireplace, or a wall to surround the space, you’ll have your pick of gorgeous Techo-Bloc products.

Each collection designed and produced by Techo-Bloc is crafted to emulate the look of natural materials, like stone or wood. Because the materials are actually manufactured from concrete, though, you can count on a high degree of consistency and uniformity from one unit to the next.

In addition to this, the materials are weather-resistant and durable. On top of everything else, these products are very affordable, which means that you can stretch your dollar further and construct a truly incredible Techo-Bloc outdoor living room.

Ideas for Your Techo-Bloc Outdoor Living Room

The great thing about designing a Techo-Bloc living room is that you’ll have a lot of freedom to create a space that is truly your own.

Regardless of your personal tastes and style needs, you’ll find materials that will resonate with you. To help spark your creative thought process, here’s a look at a few design ideas that we love:

Country Living

Country style is associated with a more relaxed and easy-going pace of life. This makes for the perfect atmosphere for kicking back and unwinding with the ones you hold dear.

Some of our favorite materials for this country vibe include those from the Borealis and Brandon lines. Borealis slabs are designed to look like hardwood, and when arranged in a chevron pattern, they create that outdoor rustic cottage look that will help your space to truly stand out from the crowd.

Brandon walls and fire features help to warm the space even further. Some homeowners also introduce Borealis stepping stones or Antika pavers to create lovely walkways.

English Garden

There’s just something elegant and posh about the English way of life, and many NJ homeowners like recreating the look of an English garden when designing their Techo-Bloc outdoor living room. The cobbled look of Antika pavers gives an “old world” look to your space.

You can either pave the entire outdoor living room with these materials, or you can mix them with larger slabs for a more “American” theme.

English gardens also boast a great deal of greenery, so you might consider creating a checkerboard effect between slabs and patches of lush grass. Raised planters with Borealis or Belgik edging materials can also help to create the vibe you’re looking for.

Euro Chic

Who says you have to fly halfway across the globe to enjoy European style and decor? Every day can feel like a vacation when you build a Euro-style Techo-Bloc outdoor living room in your own backyard.

Bold Seastone and Sunrock slabs can help to set the tone for a Greek or Croatian retreat, whereas a checkerboard Tux “floor” can transport you to chic, sophisticated western Europe. The smooth, clean lines and edges associated with bullnose caps are ideal for staircases and wall caps.

Rustic Mountain

If you’re a “mountain person”, you will fall in love with the idea of establishing a rustic outdoor living room, mountain lodge. We recommend starting with Techo-Bloc flagstone pavers as the patio “floor” for your living space. Natural, irregular cut stone shapes are the hallmark of mountain living, and flagstone sets the tone.

The chiseled facing of both Prescott and Brandon wall blocks are a great choice of material for the construction of walls and pillars surrounding your space, as they create a natural, stacked look. Both Brandon and Prescott fire pits are also available, making it easy to finish off a cohesive space.


Southeastern style has grown increasingly popular in recent years, and it’s simple to capture the theme with Techo-Bloc products. The sandy, desert-like tones and style of Inca slabs make for a great base for your living room. Rocka steps can easily blend with these slabs for multi-level patios, and Rocka walls complete the look.

Private Spa

Turn your Techo-Bloc outdoor living room into your own private outdoor spa or oasis. Techo-Bloc offers several collections of slabs that are designed to resemble hardwood, creating a truly luxurious atmosphere where you can relax. Both the Borealis and Dunes collections are a great fit.

Borealis steps are naturally able to easily be paired with your living room floor, or you might consider creating a beautiful visual contrast by using materials from the Travertine Raw collection to establish stairs, caps, or even a gorgeous fire pit.


For homeowners who like to be on the cutting edge of design, Techo-Bloc offers plenty of modern options that will allow you to create a captivating, and completely unique outdoor living room. Bold geometrical patterns, clean lines and simple colors are important aspects of modern hardscaping.

Blu pavers and slabs, Linnea pavers and Industry slabs all act as the perfect canvas “floor” for your outdoor living room. The exciting 3D aspect of Graphix blocks can create a modern edge for walls and fire features, or you might look to Raffinato blocks, fire pits and caps for a more subtle and sleek appeal.

These Techo-Bloc outdoor living room design ideas are only the tip of the iceberg.
