Looking to improve your home’s outdoor entertainment options?
There are plenty of fun home improvement projects that will spruce up your outdoor spaces and turn your back garden into an entertainer’s paradise.
Here are five renovation ideas that will maximize the fun that you, your family and friends can have this summer in your garden.
1. Spruce up the Landscaping
If you want to have the coolest garden in the neighborhood, you’re naturally going to need to have impressive landscaping.
Use your outdoor area as a space to reconnect with nature by planting a variety of trees and flowering shrubs and plants.
As you plan your landscaping strategy, try to mimic the overall style of your home. For example, if you have a Tudor-style home, a classical English garden will be a perfect match.
For ultra-modern homes, a simple, clean design with lush grass and meticulously ordered shrubs and flowerbeds will make a striking style statement.
If you don’t have much of a green thumb, hire a landscaping service to create and maintain it. The beauty of your property will become the talk of the town when done right.
2. Install a Fire Pit
Is there anything more relaxing than time spent with friends and family near a warm, crackling fire on a cool night? Add a fire pit to your patio for a cozy way to keep warm while you’re outdoors with your guests.
This is an easy project that you can complete on your own with some retaining wall blocks and concrete pavers. Add comfortable seating for you and all of your guests and you’ll be enjoying this classic gathering spot for family and friends from the comfort of your own home!
3. Build a Pool
For the ultimate way to add outdoor entertainment install a brand-new in-ground pool. This beautiful addition to your garden will open your house up to so many exciting entertainment options – it’s truly an addition that your whole family will enjoy.
Consult with professional installers of custom pools before diving straight in though…They will be able to help you customize your pool to best fit your needs. A quick Google search will find many suppliers in your area.
Think about the features that you and your family would like to have in a new pool. Include fun elements like a water slide and a swimming pool basketball hoop to give kids (and adults!) plenty of options for play.
For the adults, a custom built-in hot tub will provide a luxurious way to relax after a long day. The customization options for pools are truly endless – the only limit is your own imagination. And budget!
4. Add Outdoor Lighting
Outdoor lighting is quickly becoming one of the top landscaping design trends due to the dramatic effect it can have on your outdoor spaces. Use lighting throughout your garden and around your home to highlight interesting landscape and architectural features.
If you have a pool, patio or other hardscape area, it’s important to prioritize safety by making sure these areas are well-lit at night. In addition, install solar-powered outdoor lighting along paths and walkways to light the way for you and your guests as you continue to enjoy your property after dark.
5. Build an Outdoor Bar
Adding an outdoor bar to your entertainment options can really transform your outdoor space into an exciting entertainment destination.
You can build a standalone bar or include a bar in your plans if you choose to build a full outdoor kitchen. If you want to set your home apart from the rest, design a custom bar around your favourite theme.
You could go tropical and create a tiki bar with plenty of island flair. Alternatively, you could go for a more rustic look using reclaimed materials. Don’t be afraid to let your personality shine!
Make these upgrades to your garden to exponentially increase your home’s fun factor. By following these tips, your home will become the coolest spot in town to hang out and have friend over.
