Adding an Outdoor Entertainment Area to Your Home

by | Jan 4, 2018 | Construction and Maintenance

If you are like many homeowners, you seem to always be wanting more space for having friends and family over. For social butterflies like you there is never enough room for everyone. One way to overcome this problem is by adding an outdoor entertainment area. This could be a patio area, a deck, or a conservatory in Gravesend. Whichever you choose, there are some key things to remember to make the most of this area:

Seating – it is important to choose the right type of seating for the number of people you usually have over and the type of hosting you do- cosy night time wine and appetizers with a few friends or a big neighbourhood cook out. Seating can make or break your entertainment area so choose wisely!

Temperature – make sure you have a way for people to stay warm if it gets chilly- a fire pit is a great idea- or stay cool in the warmer months- plenty of shade or portable AC unit works great. You want to get as much use out of your space so make sure you can use it most of the year.

Eating and Drinking – food and drink are almost always part of entertaining guests so make sure your outdoor space has this covered. You can have a grill or BBQ pit, or a fire ring set up for your cooking needs. If you have access to electricity a small dorm fridge can keep drinks chilled and handy.

Socializing– you can set up your patio, deck, porch, gazebo, or conservatory with seating areas, so people can break off into groups as they want and talk and socialize with each other comfortably. This is the final aspect of outdoor entertainment areas that you will need to consider in your design.
