If you're lucky enough to have an outdoor living area in your home, a few design elements can enhance the entertainment possibilities and family enjoyment of the space. Whether you've got just a little bit of deck space or a large poolside-patio, adding in a few key areas will take your space to the next level!
Time spent outdoors with family and friends should be relaxing. Make sure there is plenty of lounging room and comfy seating. Light and portable furniture is best as it allows for easy rearranging when more space is needed. Consider adding an outdoor rug to bring in elements of indoor comfort. A large sofa, various chairs or even chic floor cushions allow for plenty of relaxing, lounging outdoor enjoyment!
Hamburgers and hotdogs come to mind when we think of outdoor fun. If you have the room, adding a dining table with ample seating will really enhance your outdoor living space. Much less formal than an indoor dining room, your outdoor dining furniture should be light and natural. Consider wicker chairs with big comfy cushions and tables with glass tops that can be easily wiped clean.
Grill & Bar Area
You're going to need a place to cook and prepare all your outdoor fare that you plan serving on your outdoor dining table! Backyard grilling is quintessentially American and you're lucky if you have the space to do so. We also recommend enhancing the experience with a bar area.
While good food and great company is enough to make any spectacular night, you can up the fun with outdoor entertainment options. Whether that's a fire pit, movie projector, or horseshoe game set, there's endless options for outdoor entertainment. If you are more of a laidback entertainer, consider adding in shelving where you can store books or board games.
In addition to the entertainment areas, having freshly painted exterior walls and professionally stained decks is key to creating a welcoming vibe. Your outdoor area is an extension of your home and should reflect your unique personality. Whether you prefer bright, bold colors or muted, neutral tones, quality paint is important for outdoors. For decks and fences, you'll want to use products that protect against harsh weather and the outdoor elements. Exterior walls should be painted with high quality paints that won't fade overtime.
