Portable bars truly do provide a finished look to your outdoor decor. They help transition a lived-in look from indoors to out and can also lend a more formal atmosphere for when you are entertaining.
Modern lines, shapes and textures look just as good against a natural backdrop as any other style. If your home is more contemporary in design, carry that theme to the great outdoors and embrace the interest it brings.
#25 Outdoor Feasts
Save yourself the time and effort it takes to clean up after a dinner in your living room and take it outdoors. Even with company, you can purchase one-time use flatware and plates for a more elegant feel, and this way the accidental spill, or dropped food, is no longer the hassel it once was. This is especially nice if you have young children.
#26 Lounging Large
If you have the space, go large and complete your look with enough room to allow everyone in the family a comfortable spot to spread out upon. Deep cushions allow for true comfort and a place to spend hours in conversation, or simply relaxing watching a game or movie on an outdoor television.
Ready, Set , Relax…
No matter what choices you make to lend the ‘lived in’ look to your backyard space, make sure it’s everything you need for true rest and relaxation. Everything from shady getaways, reading hideouts, formal sitting and service with a smile can easily be attained through the many available design ideas we’ve provided above.
