The 5 Steps To Creating A Magical Outdoor Entertainment Space
Ahh Summer… tis the season of balmy weather, lasting sunny days & neighborhood BBQ’s.
But what’s the use of this beautiful time of year if you don’t have a great outdoor space where you can relax and enjoy it? We’ve compiled a 5 step plan to help you turn your backyard into a magical paradise! Ready? Let’s get started…
1. Provide Shelter
The sun, although beautiful, can be intense and the summer rains could also put a damper on your party. The solution? A pergola or a market umbrella! Providing both elegance and cover, these amazing options, will ensure ultimate comfort at your backyard bash.
2. Add a Countertop
Upgrade your basic BBQ space by creating a place to slice tomatoes and plate your steaks & burgers, with a chic stone countertop or prep table. You can either tap into your DIY skills or check places like Wayfair for budget friendly options.
3. Light It Up
There’s nothing worse than fumbling in the dark when it’s time to see if the chicken’s done or where the replay button is for the music on your iPod. Lighting takes care of those troubles, while also adding charm and ambiance to your backyard oasis.
4. Spice It Up With Some Heat
The ultimate outdoor-accessory has to be a fireplace or fire pit. Think s’mores, guitar-accompanied karaoke and ghost tales… nothing says summer more than gathering around the fire as the stars come out. Websites like Pinterest can provide you with many tutorials and much inspiration on how to go about creating your own DIY masterpiece.
5. Pull Up A Chair
Your outdoor space just wouldn’t be complete without some amazing seating. From swings to lounge chairs and everything in between, the options are endless! Whether you choose to create your own pallet benches or purchase a luxury seating set from your favorite outdoor supplier, you will have the opportunity to customize the color and style to fit your overall vision. Seating is an opportunity to let your creative juices flow!
We hope this has inspired you to create an incredible outdoor entertainment space, that will be the source of many happy memories this summer!
