Summertime is peak season for visiting with family and friends and spending time outside. If you have volunteered your home to be the location for your family reunion, then you may be thinking of ways you can make your outdoor space more inviting, with everything from lights to awnings . These tips will have everyone enjoying the fresh air at your home for your summer family reunion, and for many seasons to come.
Add an Awning
If you have a patio or deck outside of your home, an awning will make it more inviting. When the summer sun is beating down, you and your family can take cover from the rays under the awning, where it will feel cool and comfortable. Choose between a fixed awning or a retractable version that you can open and close as needed.
Although you won’t need lights during the daytime, if you want to keep the get-together going well into the evening, outdoor lighting is key. Use lights from different sources, such as wall-mounted features along the back of your home and in-ground lighting along pathways. You can also install standing lanterns in other areas of your outdoor space to make it look inviting. Although lighting has a functional purpose when you have guests, it can also enhance the aesthetics of your outdoor area by spotlighting certain features of your landscaping.
Choose a Cabana
If you have a pool, you can count on your family sticking close to the water during hot summer weather. A cabana is the perfect addition for a pool area, as it gives people a quiet space to escape from the heat and activity. Set up a few table games in your cabana and have some food and drinks on hand so people can relax inside when they need a break from swimming.
