Outdoor entertaining can start during the daylight hours and go well beyond sunset. Keep the party going (and safe) well into the evening by thinking about outdoor lighting. There are a many beautiful options that can add magnificent ambiance as you entertain your guests.

Outdoor Fireplace

Speaking of ambiance, an outdoor fireplace or fire pit adds a great atmospheric element. The warm glow from the fire creates a cozy atmosphere for your home that brings people together for great conversation and connection.

Outdoor Kitchen

What’s the next best thing to have at a party other than your awesome guests? Awesome food of course! Having a well-designed kitchen integrated into your outdoor space is a great way to enhance your entertaining experience. By adding a refrigerator, wine cooler, and pantry to your outside kitchen you can minimize having to go back into the house for food items and allow you to do a great job of hosting and enjoy the night with your guests.

Take your outdoor experience to the next level by installing outdoor all weather televisions and wireless bluetooth speakers. Imagine being able to spend an afternoon with friends watching the game or a movie or listening to calming music while reading a book. By including outdoor entertainment in the design of your custom home, you can add wonderful value of your home both practically and in your level of enjoyment of your new home. By integrating an outdoor kitchen into the design of your custom home you will create wonderful memories that will last a lifetime.
