If you have some outdoor space on your estate there are so many things that you could do with it. If you have the right design, it could add a stunning effect to your home.
Make sure that you use all the trendy shapes, materials, textures and colors of the moment.
To achieve this you should have stucco walls, bright colors and some tropical plants. If you would like to enjoy nature and to entertain guests, you should opt for an Asian inspired small oasis in the backyard. In order to tie all the elements together, you should make sure that you have a large umbrella. This allows people to enjoy outdoors in the shade.
Table for entertaining
If you have enough space, you could have a cooking area and a seating area and in between make sure that there is room left for a dining table. Ensure that the table has enough places for a dinner party. To achieve the perfect tropical vibe you should have a patio with turquoise stained concrete.
If you want to have a balanced patio, you should opt for strong geometrical shapes. The structural elements, such as the wall of the patio can be offset with some bold patterns. For the tropical feel, think about pillows with floral patterns. The stripes of a rug can draw the attention to the seating area. Adding paper lanterns is also a good idea because they illuminate the place and they add an Asian feel to the place.
If you have an outdoor kitchen, it could turn your patio into the perfect place for entertainment. To have a complete kitchen, it is best to have a grill as well along with a sink, refrigerator, and plenty of space for preparing the food. Building cabinet boxes is also a good idea for storage space and you have to make sure that this is insect resistant and durable. For more protection, you should also apply some UV sealer.
When it comes to the counter tops, you should opt for natural stone such as limestone. This is a good choice because it can withstand freeze. It is best for the counters to be placed away from the house so that water would drain and they wouldn’t have any standing water.
As you can see, there is a lot you could think about before planning your perfect place for entertainment.
