Summer is here! Building an outdoor entertaining area is a great way to make use of your outdoor space – here are some ideas to get your backyard in tip top shape for entertaining your friends and family.
Lay out your idea plans
Have you considered what you want in your backyard? Are you wanting to build a BBQ area or do you want to improve your veranda, pergola or deck? Draw up a rough sketch of your top wants for your backyard. Don’t forget to think about seating, pavers and water features.
Outdoor BBQs are the staple to any outdoor kitchen. Are you giving your existing BBQ a needed update or are you building and installing a new one? What space do you have available to use for your BBQ – and will your BBQ area be against a wall or out in the centre as a feature? Other appliances and features that you can consider include a fridge, a sink, shelving and cabinetry as well as lighting and heating.
Furniture to withstand the weather
Outdoor furniture brings comfort and function to any outdoor space. Be careful to consider the weather – how much rain or sun will it be exposed to and do you live near the coastline?
Backyards provide an amazing space to entertain, unwind and let your kids run free – what do you enjoy most about your backyard?
