When you buy a Collin County home, it is your space to live in and enjoy and you can renovate and
redecorate in order to improve your surroundings in any way that you choose.
One of the ways that you can enhance your enjoyment of the property as well as
add to the value of the home is to create an outdoor dining space. On a
beautiful summer day, what could be nicer than having a place where friends and
family can gather and enjoy a few drinks, barbecue up some tasty food and
breathe the fresh air?
Here are some
tips to keep in mind when you are adding an outdoor dining space to your home:
Choose the right location. You want your backyard
dining area to be peaceful, quiet and private, so find the best spot on your
yard that will be screened from view and sheltered from street noise.
Clear a space. Choose an open area where you can
place the outdoor dining table. If you put it underneath a tree, you run the
risk of having leaves, sap, or insects drop into your food!
Lay the groundwork. Create a patio surface with stones or tiles first, which will give
you a stable and flat place to put your table, chairs and barbecue.
Invest in sturdy furniture. Outdoor tables and
chairs take a lot more wear from rain, sun, and the elements than their indoor
cousins. Make sure you buy solid items that will last you many years.
Create some shade. If you want to enjoy yourself even
in the direct heat of the afternoon, add a sun umbrella to your table. ·There are many different styles, and many can be
adjusted and tilted to provide shade as the sun moves through the sky.
Make sure your
barbecue is in a safe spot. Check that it is nowhere near anything
flammable, or that it is not too close to trees or the side of the house. Decorate and set the scene. Improve the surroundings
of your backyard dining room with some beautiful flowers, a trickling fountain or a tranquil rock
Once you have
created the ideal outdoor space, it’s time to invite some good friends over to
have a few drinks, barbecue up some burgers and relax!
