Picture this: a backyard sanctuary that invites you to lounge with a good book, grill with a cold drink in hand, and laugh with friends over a home-cooked meal. This outdoor living space expertly blends style, innovation, and function. It looks and feels like an extension of your home—not an afterthought.
What if we told you this daydream can become a reality, and building this reality is feasible? Below, we break down three high-impact ways to extend your home’s interior style to your open-air entertainment space.
Pro-Tip: Homeowners can also literally bring the indoors out by configuring comfortable furniture for additional deck seating, styling an outdoor bar cart, and setting out throw blankets and pillows for pops of color. An added benefit, composite and PVC deck boards are UV, scratch- and moisture-resistant, so you can spend more time lounging on your deck furniture instead of performing deck maintenance.
Pro-Tip: Add string lights and lanterns to create an extra warm and inviting outdoor living area.
Pro-tip: To further increase hosting potential in an outdoor living space, consider bringing composite or PVC deck boards to the top railing for a wider spot to place drinks or lean into a good conversation. The Al¹³ HOME™ system offers one heck of a drink rail, as well—like it was designed for backyard entertaining.
