For more on your new Outdoor living area, contact Parker Design today.Luxury homeowners continue to raise the bar on what they want and need in their homes, especially when it comes to entertaining guests.  So, when it comes to outdoor living areas, there is no exception!  While swimming pools used to be a defining characteristic of a luxury home, outdoor spaces are now more expansive and encompassing.  In this series, we have reviewed some some of the top trends for luxury homes.  In this article, we will coach you up to host even the most extravagant outdoor party.  Here are some ideas to get you started.


Complete Outdoor Kitchen

Put that portable grill at the end of the driveway because today’s luxury homes have complete kitchens with all the bells and whistles!  Stainless steel appliances and work spaces that rival a commercial chef’s kitchen are just the beginning.  Add in a pizza oven or built-in barbecue and you’re halfway there.  Now add in beer taps or a wine center to complete the experience!  Make sure you have plenty of seating to accommodate your average size outdoor party.


Extend Your Living Area

Whether you extend the roof-line or add retractable glass doors or walls, you can create an entire backyard living area complete with fireplace, movie theater, and bar. Add a fire pit and lounge seating for a more relaxed environment.  Make sure to have options for sun and shade so that your guests can choose to relax where they are most comfortable.  Choose materials that give the wow factor!  Incorporate natural stone options for that high-end luxury or mix and match materials to stay on budget.  Adding a pergola, chandeliers and cozy seating will set the stage for a great outdoor party!


More Unique Ideas

Want to hop out of the pool and get a drink at a genuine tiki bar, reminiscent of your most romantic island getaway?  It’s easy to add one!  Build an outdoor cabana or two so that your guests can rest and relax.  Or, perhaps you want to slip away down a quiet path to a hidden tree house?


The designs and ideas are limitless, and Parker Design Build Remodel can build the outdoor oasis you’ve always dreamed about.  Contact Parker today for a free consultation!
