5 Tips To Help You Design a Dream Outdoor Entertaining Space

  • Written by

As soon as the weather starts warming up, most people love getting outdoors. You instantly feel more positive and capable of doing almost anything. Naturally, you’ll want to share these feelings and get friends and family over to enjoy time together.

However, to ensure everything runs smoothly, you’re going to need a good outdoor entertaining space.

Fortunately, it’s easier than you think to create a dream space.

  1. Consider Shade

The right cover will give you shade from the sun and some protection against the wind and rain. While many people consider gazebos because they seem like the perfect solution.

However, they are vulnerable to the weather, especially the wind. They can also effectively block light from inside your home. While this can help with shading, it doesn’t help the inside of your home feel great.

A better option is to check out the latest Sydney awnings and fit one to your home. They offer shade and rain protection. But, they can be retracted when not needed, protecting the light in your home and reducing the risk of damage from the weather.

  1. Seating Areas

You need a comfortable place for everyone to sit, relax, and chat. That means investing in wicker chairs with nice soft cushions. Ensuring everyone is comfortable helps the entertaining to go well.

But, you should also consider having multiple entertaining areas, especially if you have children. This gives the younger ones their own spot to sit in, everyone will be grateful for this.

  1. Outside Kitchens

If you’re all outside the last thing you want to be doing is heading in and out of your house all the time for food and drinks. Instead, invest n a simple outside kitchen and create the cooking area near the table and chairs. Ideally, the outside kitchen should allow you to stay connected to eating and sitting areas, ensuring you remain part of the event

It also makes it easier for others to help themselves.

  1. Lighting

To create the right atmosphere you’ll want to add some simple lights around the entertaining area. These should improve the ambience without being too bright. You can choose between plain lighting or coloured lighting.

But, while green energy is great, your lights should be connected to the mains. You’ll want them to stay on for as long as you are outside.

Having more than one set of lights in each area is a good idea to help create the right balance between light and atmosphere.

  1. Make It Feel Natural

Finally, you can’t entertain outside unless you have plenty of natural elements in your design. Without these, your entertaining area could just as easily be inside. Embrace nature with a variety of plants. However, you don’t want to spend hours maintaining them all. That’s why it’s best to have them in pots around the edge of the entertaining area. The right plants don’t just look good. They can also help keep pests away from the area.
