Entertaining can be difficult in a small house. That’s why we’ve seen the rising trend of adding an outdoor living space to many homes. An outdoor living space is more than a deck or a patio. It can be as cozy and enjoyable as your living room or your kitchen. Or both.

Here are a few things that you can add to improve your next get together.

Plenty of seating

A large deck or patio allows room for cozy couches or chairs, chaise lounge chairs and tables. In addition to furniture, hardscape walls can offer the chance to gather around a fire pit on a cool fall evening. And speaking of fire pits…

Heat sources

As the sun sets on a spring or fall evening the temperature can drop creating a need for some warmth. Fire pits or fire places are great options. You can also add propane heaters or chimineas for heat.


Nothing offers the beauty and serenity of a garden getaway like lush landscaping. Hire a professional to design something that suits your needs. Things to consider are temperature zone, amount of sunlight and your commitment to taking care of your plants.

Outdoor kitchen

An outdoor kitchen is a great way to bring the indoors out. A grill is just the beginning with this attractive amenity. Many kitchens include a sink, a refrigerator and storage.
