Outdoor entertaining spaces are a valuable and functional addition to any home, especially if you regularly host gatherings with family members and friends. If you are considering hiring a professional to design and construct the perfect outdoor entertaining space for your wants and needs, it is important to consider which features to include in the space. As a leading provider of landscape services for all types of projects, the team at Jovak Landscape & Design knows how beneficial a well-designed outdoor living space can be. That is why we have compiled a list of 3 great features for outdoor entertaining to help you determine which features to include in your space.
3 Features for a Great Outdoor Entertaining Space
To create an outdoor space that you, your family, and your guests will love, be sure to include the following features:
1. Covered Patio
A covered patio is the foundation of every outdoor living space. If you are looking to create a space that is comfortable in various types of weather, it is important to choose the right location for your patio, select the right materials, and choose the right type of cover. Whether you choose a pergola or patio cover will depend on your preferences and the typical weather conditions you experience. For example, if you want to completely shield your patio from harsh sunlight and rain, you will likely opt for a patio cover instead of a pergola. In addition to choosing the right cover, it is important to invest in the right furniture, plants, and other elements for your patio to optimize comfort, appeal, and functionality.
2. Outdoor Kitchen
If you want to entertain your guests outside without travelling back and forth between your patio and indoor kitchen, an outdoor kitchen is a great investment. These spaces allow you to effectively prepare food, entertain guests, and dine outside without needing to step indoors. To ensure optimal efficiency and safety for your outdoor kitchen, it is crucial to consider the layout of the space and how you will move through it. For example, you will need to consider where your appliances will be, whether you will have an island in the space, and how you will keep the space sufficiently illuminated at night.
3. Fire Pit
Fire pits are the perfect feature for outdoor relaxation, especially if you experience colder evenings. Whether you are considering a cauldron fire pit, stone fire bowl, or bar and fire pit combo, there are many options to choose from for your property. To select the right option, it is important to consider where the fire pit will be located, how large it will be, and the materials you wish to use for it.
