Are you wanting to make the best outdoor entertainment area so you can host all of your friends and family like the one below? Are you secretly hoping that you get so many compliments on it and hope it’s the best in the street? Well here are a few tips to help you create the perfect space.
Before you start to do anything about the area you’re creating, you must have a layout planned. You have to consider the things you definitely want to include. If you have quite a large space to work with, it is best to spread things out and make different zones.
Flooring is everything. You want to have a floor that is sending a warm and inviting vibe up through the space. Having gorgeous engineered timber is a major hit and creates such warmth. Having pavers that compliment the colour of the timber you have chosen is a beautiful feature. Just remember, the flooring you choose has to match your home to keep the same vibe. Acquiring the help of a landscaping contractor could most certainly help you create the best outdoor area.
Putting lighting around the yard will make the space feel more lively and will allow you to spend more time out there on those beautiful warm summer nights.
Every garden needs a focal point. It could be a stunning vertical garden, a gorgeous outdoor dining set, or it could be just a feature. Including something in your outdoor design that gives off a wow factor is key to draw people in.
Bringing The Outside Inside
Have you ever planned to host people over and then when the day comes it rains and you can’t have everyone outside? Well to avoid having to shuffle everyone inside, create an outdoor area that can be closed off when it is cold and rainy. Putting bi-fold doors in the room is a fantastic feature and allows you to accommodate to every time of year. You just make sure that you keep the same design in both areas. For example, if your home has a lot of timber throughout it, make sure you include various timber products in the outside area to keep the flow.
You might think, ‘why spend money on an outdoor kitchen when you already have one inside?’ but hear me out. If you are cooking on the BBQ outside and you have all of your guests outside, why would you want to carry all of the dishes all the way into the house? You could also include a stove and fridge in the outdoor kitchen, which means that you can cook more things on the stove and you don’t have to keep walking through the house just to get a drink out of the fridge. Spending the extra money is definitely worth it, and plus, it gives you more room in your main kitchen!
