One of the best ways to enjoy a large backyard is to make that area more comfortable and useful.
Turning empty yard space into an amazing outdoor entertainment area can create fun times throughout the seasons.
For homeowners looking to convert their plain backyards into the perfect entertainment spots, here are some inspirational tips and ideas on how to do it.
A local outdoor contractor experienced with outdoor lighting and other outdoor components will be happy to help homeowners come up with the perfect backyard plan!
1. Build A Patio and Pergola
At the base of every outdoor entertainment area plan is a great patio.
Whether choosing poured concrete, slate, stone, brick, or some other surface, a patio provides a blank slate on which to install other fixtures for a more enjoyable backyard.
A pergola over the patio looks appealing while offering shade as well.
2. Add Great Seating
Depending on the components planned for the space, different types of seating should be considered.
Built-in seating around a fire pit or spa can work nicely, as can adding an outdoor lounge set with comfortable padded seating.
When including an outdoor kitchen, a dining or café set is a great seating option to also add.
3. Install Outdoor Lighting and Sound
Outdoor lighting is an essential part of any exterior space design for creating an atmosphere and making the space safe and usable after sundown.
From strung lights and hanging fixtures to wall sconces and lights along walkways and throughout the landscaping, an outdoor entertainment area design should include plenty of lighting to create the mood.
Don’t forget to have a great sound system installed to add even more ambiance.
4. Include A Cozy Outdoor Fire Pit
Outdoor fire pits are great spots to sit and talk, sip some wine, or even roast some marshmallows over the flame.
They are appealing on cool summer evenings and provide warmth in the winter.
Fire pits make fabulous additions to any entertainment area, easily turning a plain backyard into a desirable place to spend time.
5. Consider An Outdoor Kitchen
For the grillers and chefs out there, including an outdoor kitchen under a covered patio can be another useful idea for homeowners who enjoy entertaining.
With the ability to cook outside where family and guests are gathered, it is easier to stay included in the conversation while impressing everyone with great cooking skills.
Outside kitchens and dining areas also make cooking for guests more convenient and cleaner.
6. Add A Spa for Year-Round Enjoyment
Another excellent addition to any outdoor entertainment area is a spa.
Whether set up on a deck or a patio, spas provide an enjoyable space to relax no matter the time of year.
Equipped with low outdoor lighting around it to provide just enough illumination to create a relaxing yet private atmosphere, an outdoor hot tub spa is a unique and fun addition to any custom backyard design.
7. Increase Comfort with Outdoor Heaters and Blinds
For those who enjoy entertaining year-round in Texas, outdoor heaters can provide just enough comfort to take the nip out of the air on fall or winter nights.
Positioned on the patio with adjustable blinds overhead to contain some of that warmth, heaters and blinds are often overlooked yet help to make an exterior space more versatile for longer seasonal use.
