After buying a home that offers an outdoor escape directly from the bedroom, then I have had a firsthand look at what it’s like to have this kind of luxury. Sure, it’s a very simple matter, really — we’d never bat an eye at having a door off the front of the home. It’s normal and expected. But to have a private escape the side of your bedroom is something different entirely.
Whether it’s a walkout that steps directly into the yard or one which slips off to a small retreat, the general feeling is the same. Going to bed only to see that you’d rather gaze at the stars wouldn’t longer cause a stir throughout the rest of the home. And , waking up and needing to slip outside before interacting with other people is a really nice option to have. Most of us have these mornings?
So, as an ode to bedrooms that offer such a treat, here are 13 photographs of stunning bedroom walkouts. Make sure you pay careful attention to the doorways: It seems they all have one thing in common. Wide open accessibility to from, helping the separate spaces merge into a single.
It appears that this modern home is surrounded by lush green foliage. I can only imagine how cool it is to wake up and walk outside on a crisp autumn morning. Robe and slippers, it’s time to get up!
While looking for photographs to add in this ideabook, I kept coming across bedrooms with lovely French doors but no views of the patios which rested behind them. I was pleased to see this bedroom had another perspective…
Which is this! I was amazed to observe how large the room is. What a stunning view that this homeowner has — and with just two sets of doors. A bedroom that this lavish would be difficult to leave.

A home overlooking the lake is one thing. A home with a bedroom walkout to a balcony overlooking the lake is just another. Particularly when there are mountains involved.
A sheer drape swaying involving exquisite doors looks like something you would find in the ocean-view suite on the Caribbean.
This sunny bedroom would unquestionably be a favorite hangout if it had been in my own home. And if the room does not already feel airy enough, there is always the balcony to lounge on.

Another bedroom with just a sliver of this porch glancing through. Judging by the way this bedroom loft is introduced, I am sure the porch perspective wouldn’t let us down. I am especially fond of these rich colored doorways.

Swiping that blanket the foot of the bed and heading out for a kiss from the sun are the first thing on the to-do list, I am positive. Walking outside to be greeted with Lawn Care beneath your feet after a long day would be fine, too.

Gazing through this wall of windows every morning would be a great way to get going. Until you choose a chair in one of these low-slung wooden seats, that’s. Then it is possible to depend on hanging out rather than getting dressed.
Forget waking up to the nudging nose a cat or dog — fish stay to themselves and will not wake you up at 5:30 a.m. on the weekend. A mesmerizing pet which you may visit at your leisure does not come often. But that is okay, most of us adore our budding friends and would not really trade them for a school of bass. Their calmness is merely an added bonus.
Stepping out onto this deck for a day mojito before sun-down could likely develop into a ritual . Lounge clothes on, rum cap off. I wonder if there is a bar cart round the corner?

I really don’t know if I am more attracted to the charm of French doors and their gridded panes of glass or even the smooth transition which these floor to ceiling windows offer, but either way, this specific setup works well within this area. I’d say that smaller chambers look better with a single sheet of glass head .
My favorite part about this terrace is all of the texture! Bricks below your footsteps, shake siding into your side, glossy planters down manicured plants reaching upwards — all things which make this outdoor retreat worthy of an open-door policy.
So, are you prepared for a bedroom with outdoor access on your home? Or perhaps you already have one? If you do, we’d really like to see your photographs! Make sure you share in the Remarks section below.
