Assume that you already have your patio furniture picked out, assume that you already have the traditional barbeque ready to go – how are you going to impress the next time that people walk onto your patio? We have a few different features that you are going to love adding to your patio, that are going to keep guests entertained and ensure that your outdoor living area truly feels like a second living room.
Feature #1 – A Wet Bar
If you are going to entertain on your patio, you cannot go without a wet bar. Fortunately the traditional wet bar has been replaced with one that is easy to customize, giving you access to a mini-fridge for storing beverages and food items, counter space for food preparation, cabinets for kitchen utensil storage, a sink for easy water access, seats for extra seating, and many more options.
Feature #2 – An Outdoor Kitchen
If you fancy yourself a bit of a home chef, an outdoor kitchen on your patio is going to make for the ultimate addition! You can decide to make this as basic or luxurious as you want – whether you want an electric smoker, have a brick oven installed, or just have the aforementioned grill for barbecuing. Especially as the weather becomes nicer this offers you a tremendous way to entertain guests by preparing and enjoying the meals outdoors.
Feature #3 – A Hot Tub
You should be able to appreciate your outdoor living area even if you are suffering from some serious winter temperatures. A hot tub is going to provide your outdoor living space with a spa-like atmosphere and offers a great place to take a dip during the warmer months of the year. Make sure that you have a tall enough fence for some privacy. Speaking of which….
Feature #4 – Fencing/Walls
You want to make sure that your patio ‘stands out’ from the rest of your backyard, and privacy walls and fences can help you do that. This is going to offer you a far more secluded private living area. Add some decorative wall hangings or paint the walls to match your patio to make sure that it looks nice too.
Feature #5 – Built-In Seating
You do not want to have to lug chairs around every time someone comes to visit, you want to optimize your outdoor living space and promote relaxation – not have to stress about whether you have enough chairs. The built-in seating can promote a more open floor-plan, allowing you to move around freely.
