Whether as part of a patio or a pool house, an outdoor bar is the perfect finishing touch to a landscape design built with entertainment in mind. From intimate evenings to small gatherings to extravagant outdoor parties, the outdoor bar can serve as the perfect place to host guests and enjoy a cool beverage on a hot summer night.
Consider the following when coming up with outdoor bar ideas for your home:
Do you want an outdoor bar designed with the family chef in mind? To create a bar area that’s well suited for cooking and meal preparation as well as serving beverages, we suggest allocating ample space for refrigeration, a grill, dual sinks, and countertops.
Do you have a patio or pool house where you’d like to build your outdoor bar or are you starting from scratch? If you already have a patio or pool house design well suited for an outdoor kitchen with a bar, you’ll want to choose materials that match the existing style and a design that can seamlessly blend in with the rest of the structure. If you’re building an outdoor bar from the very beginning, you have much more flexibility to choose the design and style elements you like best, as well as the placement of your new outdoor bar, for an end result perfectly tailored to your individual tastes.
Do you have other hardscapes in your landscape design? The rest of your landscape design will naturally impact the design of your outdoor bar. Consider the materials and styles found in any existing hardscaping to ensure your new bar can be easily integrated into the overall landscape design and keep in mind the best placement to maximize functionality and complement the aesthetic. If you have a swimming pool, for instance, you’ll likely want to install an outdoor bar nearby for convenience and to ease the flow of traffic during outdoor parties.
You may also want to think about installing new hardscapes as part of your outdoor bar design, like an arbor or pergola, or creating a complete outdoor kitchen with a bar at the forefront of the design. Give us a call for more information!
