How to Design the Ultimate Backyard Space for Entertaining

Is your house the place that tends to be the natural meeting space for family and friends? Are you considered the entertainer of your group and just love hosting people at your home? Do many of your gatherings take place outdoors in your own backyard? If so, it may be time to jazz the space up a bit and design the ultimate backyard space for entertaining.

Here are a few ways that you’ll be able to accomplish just that.

Create a Fully-Functioning Outdoor Kitchen

When it comes to entertaining your guests, there’s nothing better than being able to provide them with fabulous food and drinks. Rather than having to go in and out of the house, and feeling as though you’re not really spending time together, why not design the ultimate fully-functioning outdoor kitchen.

As you design your outdoor kitchen, you’ll need to include a grill, a sink, a worktop for food preparation, an outdoor fridge, and storage space. You can also elevate the experience with cool features like a wood burning pizza oven – that would really create quite the meal for all your guests.

Don’t forget to also include plenty of comfortable seating for you and your guests that offers a shade when needed.

Install Your Own Putting Green

If you’re looking for an activity that you and your guests can enjoy while entertaining, your own personal putting green can certainly do the trick. A backyard putting green installation is easier than you may think and gives you the ability to transform a rather bland space into one that is engaging and fun for all ages. The kids will enjoy putting just as much as the adults, and it really can act as a conversation starter when you have guests drop by.

Now, if you happen to be a golf enthusiast this also provides you with the perfect place to practice. Many of these greens can be customized too, so you’ll be able to create something unique and beautiful.

What About a Water Feature?

Depending on the space you have available in your backyard, and your budget, a water feature can also help to add to the experience. A pool will provide endless hours of fun, whether you’re looking at an in-ground or above-ground model.

If a pool isn’t in your budget, or not exactly what you’re after, then perhaps you may want to consider a hot tub or spa. Today you can find hot tubs that seat anywhere from two to 12+ people. Some even act as a lap pool or exercise pool. They often have their own sound system wired in, lights, and even television monitors. A hot tub can seriously elevate the entertainment factor in your yard and is perfect for smaller spaces.

Each of these tweaks and additions will help you to design the ultimate backyard entertaining space that all your friends and family will want to flock to, and that you’ll take great pride in.
