Long Weekends Outside: Entertaining in Your Outdoor Living Space

With the long weekend’s arrival, we’re thinking about comfortable, inviting, and stylish ways to welcome guests into your outdoor living space. When you love to entertain, expanding your home to an outdoor living space makes every occasion more festive and memorable. Here is some inspiration for backyard entertaining in your whole home remodel or new home.

What’s Your Entertaining Style?
Lifestyle questions are essential when you’re working with a professional designer to establish the best layout and space planning for your outdoor living. Are your events usually an intimate group gathering? Do you like to invite a friendly crowd over to watch sports on TV? Is a pool party your favorite way to have fun? This Backyard Dream integrates an automated screen for movie nights! A professional designer helps you select the elements that will work best for how you entertain, from kitchens and BBQs to pools and seating areas.

Integrated Design
One of the most important aspects of your outdoor living space is that the transition from inside to outside is visually integrated and works well functionally. Our professional designers are experts in balancing the inside and outside of your home with appealing harmony, whether your space is a simple backyard patio or an expansive design on a grand scale.

Entertaining in Any Season
In San Diego, we are lucky to have many more days we can entertain outdoors than in other parts of the country. Still, a smart design includes elements that protect from both rain and intense sun. Carefully planned features such as fireplaces and fire pits or a louvered roof with a heating system are ideal for nighttime entertaining. The outdoor kitchen for this Historic Hideaway outdoor living space is protected by a louvered roof with a fan and lighting so comfortable cooking can happen day or night.

Make the most of your weekends at home with an outdoor living space that expands your home and lets you enjoy and share beautiful natural surroundings. When you work with a unified team of architects, designers, and construction professionals, you can bring new possibilities to your home, inside and out, with a style all your own.
