Outdoor entertaining spaces are a must-have for homeowners in Northern Colorado. With over 300 days of sunshine each year, it’s important to make the most of your outdoor space. Here are some of our top tips for creating the perfect outdoor entertaining space!
- Maximize your space: Make sure to utilize every inch of your outdoor space. You may even consider adding a deck or patio as a designated area for entertaining or building an upper deck to create even more usable outdoor space.
- Lighting: Lighting is key to creating a warm and inviting atmosphere. Use decorative and appropriate lighting to highlight your outdoor space and create a cozy ambiance.
- Shade structures: Install a shade structure to protect your guests from the sun and create a cool, comfortable outdoor space. This can be accomplished in several ways, such as extending your roof or adding a pergola.
- Landscaping: Landscaping is the cherry on top of any outdoor space that can make all the difference. We always enjoy a good fire pit surrounded by simple landscaping that can grow with your family for every phase of life.
- Outdoor kitchen: An outdoor kitchen is a useful addition to any outdoor entertaining space. For the chef, it allows you to cook and entertain at the same time so you don’t miss out on any of the action, making it not only fun but also functional to host large gatherings.
- Seating: Seating is what gives you and your guests that ease of comfort to really encourage everyone to sit and stay a while. Consider adding a mix of seating options, such as built-in benches, chairs, and lounges, to accommodate different preferences.
- Entertainment: Don’t forget to add some entertainment options to your outdoor space! Consider adding a fire pit, speakers, outdoor games, or an outdoor TV to keep your guests entertained.
- Privacy: Create a sense of privacy in your outdoor space by adding a fence, strategically-placed plants, or a privacy screen. This will make your guests feel more comfortable and allow them to relax and enjoy the space.
- Maintenance: Finally, make sure to maintain your outdoor space regularly. This includes cleaning, pruning, and replacing any damaged or worn-out items.
