Entertain the Idea of Outdoor Entertaining
Outdoor entertaining has become a big trend in socializing, which means that simple decks and patio spaces simply aren’t cutting it anymore. Buyers are looking for more. They want houses and properties with ample space to accommodate their entertaining needs—not just inside, but outside, as well. They want outdoor living spaces that mirror the way they live in their homes, with comfortable seating areas and outdoor kitchens and every imaginable bell and whistle to make outdoor living every bit as enticing as staying inside. They’re looking past the exterior walls of their houses to expand their ideas of what home entertaining is, and the sky really has become the limit.
Naturally, everyone’s style of entertaining is different. Which means that everyone’s outdoor entertaining ideas are equally as different. True, some people are perfectly satisfied with gathering around a grill and perching on serviceable furniture that looks sturdy enough to stand up to anything that gets thrown at it. But if you want your outdoor entertaining to become epic, you’re going to need to kick things up a notch. Or many notches.
Want to show off your culinary skills? Some of the most awesome new construction ideas have amazing kitchens equipped with every imaginable appliance so that you can enjoy chef-level cooking in an al fresco setting. Want to create your own theater space? The latest outdoor entertainment systems have enabled even the techiest homeowners to set things up in style, with massive weatherproof television screens and sound systems worthy of a premier party.
Fortunately for the domestic goddess with visions of creating a stylish gathering, outdoor décor no longer sacrifices style. All-weather clunkers of days gone by have been happily replaced with pieces that look trendy enough to suit interior design, so seating is not only more comfortable—it’s also much more pleasing to the eye.
Even when things cool down for fall and winter, you can keep things warm and toasty with outdoor fire pits and fireplaces. The ambient glow and cozy, romantic feel they create make them inviting, providing the perfect way to encourage your guests to enjoy being outside long past the last days of summer.
As you plan the design of your home, remember to think past the ways you’ll live in it. Think about the ways you’ll live out of it, as well.
