You have a beautiful outdoor space that you’re ready to customize. Your backyard oasis is what you make of it, so let’s start brainstorming. There are several outdoor accessories that can take your patio, deck, porch, or backyard to the next level. What would you like to be able to do in your outdoor area? Whether you’d like to cook a meal, watch the big game, or simply relax with friends and family, a trusted general contractor can get the job done. Here are some of the best additions that will make you love the outdoors even more.
Why Should I Add Outdoor Accessories?
The right additions can make an ordinary outdoor space extraordinary. Customizing and upgrading your area can add function, beauty, value, enjoyment, and opportunity for activities. Not only will your personal enjoyment of the space be increased, but you’ll be adding value to your home.
If you choose to sell your house in the future, the additions below can improve your home’s desirability and increase its selling price. Working with a trusted general contractor will yield the best possible outcome and create valuable, durable, and professional results.
Food and Drink
When it’s beautiful outside, you just want an excuse to get outdoors. If you’d like to prepare and serve your meals while enjoying a nice breeze, consider these outdoor accessories.
Grills—One of the best parts about warm weather is enjoying a home cooked meal on the patio. Adding a built-in grill to your outdoor space will create a kitchen in your own backyard where you can make delicious grilled meats, veggies, pizzas, and even desserts. This addition will inspire you to brush up on your amateur cooking skills and spend time enjoying the fresh air while you eat, rather than sitting inside.
Bars—Margaritas anyone? A home bar is a must-have for any cocktail lover, and an outdoor bar combines your two favorite things—a refreshing beverage and warm summer days. This addition will make entertaining guests even easier since you won’t have to rush in and out of the kitchen making and serving drinks. Break out the cocktail shaker and serve them right on the patio.
Dining Set—Now that your food and drinks are ready, it’s time to sit down with good company and enjoy a meal together. The perfect dining set will take your outdoor space to the next level as it will create an ambiance of comfort and luxury. Find a table and chairs that fit the aesthetic of your outdoor space and create a homey feel for your personal oasis.
Spending quality time with the family outside is easy with these outdoor additions. If the purpose of your space is to provide fun and enjoyment to your loved ones, consider these accessories.
TVs—Watching a movie, beloved sitcom, or sporting event outdoors is the best way to cozy up with loved ones. Outdoor TVs can be installed to resist weather and look like a stylish addition. Adding a mantel beneath the screen allows for extra decorating room as well!
Fire Pit—Nothing says summer like the crackling of a fire. Gather round a beautiful fire pit made of any material that suits your personal style and share stories with the family over the flames. At Mancill Builders, we’re well-versed in fire codes and will ensure your pit is safe.
Playground—Kids crave outdoor time to let out their youthful energy. Give your children a place to explore with a playground. You can add slides, monkey bars, swings, or anything you know your kids and neighbors will adore.
Function and Style
Some additions are great for entertainment and luxury, but others make outdoor areas more comfortable, efficient, and streamlined. Looking to up the functionality of your outdoor space while also adding some flair? These additions will do the trick.
Lighting—Spending a summer night outside is so relaxing. The temperature has cooled off and you no longer need sunglasses or shade, but you might need some extra lighting. Light fixtures can be added almost anywhere in your outdoor space like along patio walls, steps, gazebos, or porch ceilings. You could even consider trendy globe lights on strings that will create an ethereal ambiance.
Ceiling Fans—In order to keep air flowing and your porch cool, consider adding ceiling fans. These will not only lower the temperature and make the summer heat much more comfortable, but they’ll also add some nice visual appeal to your space. A general contractor can help you choose a color and design that will fit with the overall layout and scheme of your porch.
