After this past winter, we are beyond ready to enjoy the great outdoors, whether it’s a high-energy sport, a game among friends or simply lounging on the back patio. Here are five tips to prepare your home for this year’s casual entertainment season.

Tip #1: Comfy, Weatherproof Seating
Nothing can make your patio more welcoming than a cozy place to sit. Brightly colored or patterned cushions for outdoor lounging may make the space your new favorite “staycation” spot.

Tip #2: An Ever-convenient Outdoor Kitchen
Outdoor rooms are an extension of the home, so keep everything you could possibly need outside. For example, our outdoor kitchen will keep your beverages cool, the food hot and your guests continually impressed by the aesthetic appeal of your stylish outdoor cooking area.

Tip #3: Discreet Pest Repellant
Prevent the discomfort of your welcomed guest by blocking out the unwelcoming ones. Decorative, pest repelling burners can be subtle yet effective; some even double as outdoor lighting. Thank us later!

Tip #4: Shade Systems
This time of year brings the beauty of sunshine, warm rain showers and oh-so-hot ultraviolet rays. Whether you opt for a pergola, gazebo, retractable awning, or a large umbrella, a functional shade system will help keep the party going, no matter the weather.

Tip #5: Nice Tableware
Outdoor tableware is where you exercise your attention to detail. Selecting a table setting that complements your seat cushions and shade system will make your entertainment space an all-around design success.
