The summer of 2021 will be different. Staying home and entertaining guests seem to be a better alternative to dining out and planning beach vacations amid the pandemic. It is a great idea to spend money on home improvement projects. A revamp for your outdoor space is the best way to get started if you want to have a party-ready venue in your backyard. You can plan get-togethers keeping social distancing in mind, while nothing feels better than lounging under the stars, listening to the gurgle of an outdoor fountain, enjoying the fresh breeze. Here are some ideas to revamp your outdoor space this summer.
Begin with a paint refresh
After a year of being indoors, you may want to give your home a fresh look and feel inside out. A coat of paint for the exterior gives you a great start with the makeover for the outdoor space. It makes sense to spend a bit more on weather-proof paint because you can expect it to last longer. Paint the main door to give the entrance a warm and welcoming ambiance.
Light it up
Making the home exterior summer-ready is as much about lighting it up for the events you plan to host. A few strands of fairy lights create a magical effect with warmth and elegance. You can install a vintage lantern on the main door and illuminate the garden with classic torches along the driveway. Good lighting adds to the aesthetics and makes the place safer by enhancing visibility.
Invest in a decking makeover
Perhaps the most significant part of an outdoor revamp is a decking makeover. Consider it a smart investment for your home as it helps you create a perfect party space in your backyard and increases the value. Call a decking company before the season is in full swing and get a makeover for your old deck. Choose a custom design that matches your vision and material that is easy to maintain and fits into your budget.
Build a fire pit
Eating out is passé, and dining in is the trend this year. So your outdoor space deserves a fire pit to cook outdoors and entertain your guests with delicacies from a live kitchen. You will love roasting meat and marshmallows while sitting around a fire. Before you install a fire pit, check the local regulations and get requisite permits if needed. After all, the last thing you will want to do is get in trouble with the authorities. Once you have a permit, seek help from a professional to add this feature to your backyard.
Go the extra mile with the greens
When it comes to revamping your outdoor space, you cannot overlook your garden. Mow the lawn and get some new flowers to bring colorful summer vibes to the place. Weed out the dead plants and refresh the trees and shrubs by trimming them. Regular watering and good lawn care will make your garden flaunt-worthy by the time you are ready to invite your guests for a summer get-together.
When you are done with the revamp, you can set up a table and some chairs and throw a rug and some pillows on the floor. Play some music, and you are all set to host a wonderful party!
