Australians love outdoor entertaining. We enjoy summer barbecues, alfresco dining and even warm winter meals around an outdoor fireplace.

Is your outdoor space inviting? Is it functional? If not, let’s look at some ways on how to get the most value out of your space.

How to create the best outdoor entertaining space for you

1. Make a Plan for your outdoor entertaining space

Creating a plan for your outdoor entertaining space will avoid chaos down the track. Look at your available space and consider how to change it to best meet your needs.

What would you like to achieve?

How much cooking do you plan on doing outdoors?

Outdoor Play Areas – Do you need to cater for children or pets?

Are you looking to create an area to entertain and relax?

There are many options that you can choose for your needs, but all this and more is achievable with a good plan.

The style of your outdoor entertaining area should match or complement your interior styling.

Add green decoration to make the space come alive:

• Plants give your space softer edges and bring it to life.
• They can attract beautiful wildlife and birds.
• Greenery adds shade and ambience to your outdoor space.
• Gives a tranquil feel

Creative use of lighting to enhance the area:

• Are you brightening up the entertaining area or highlighting garden features?
• Step lighting helps with safety and can draw the eye to different parts of the garden
• Lighting up dark corners of the garden makes guests and children feel safe to use the whole backyard.
• Would you like your lights to be solar powered, or connected to the house?
• Do you need bug zappers or tiki torches to help with summer insects?
