Here are a few tips to turn your outdoor living room or space into the ultimate neighborhood party zone! 

Covet the Luxury Cabana

Imagine having the luxury of cozy furnishings, accessible appliances, and entertaining accessories – all under one covered outdoor space! The luxury cabana is the outdoor living space trend that can be the ground zero to your backyard party paradise. 

You can start by installing a covered pergola or arbor that will provide roofed shelter so your socialization will never be interrupted. Next, think about designing an adjacent outdoor kitchen or bar, so happy hour can go all night long with tasty snacks and cocktails. 

Finally, to tie your backyard cabana all together, install the perfect outdoor entertainment system accompanied by flatscreen plasma TVs for the big game and state-of-the-art sound systems for soundtracking the perfect evening with friends or family. 

The only other thing your luxury cabana needs? Cozy furnishing every which way you look to ensure that everyone has immediate access to comfort because nobody wants to stay standing all night long!

Belly Up at the Bar 

Save yourself a trip to the neighborhood watering hole by building your own backyard dream bar in your outdoor living space! 

Whether you want to customize your own tiki lounge or complement your outdoor kitchen with a majestic, prohibition-era style martini club, nothing makes for the ultimate party hangout quite like having your own unique bar setting in your backyard. 

You don’t have to get too extravagant or excessive to build your backyard bar. You can start out by using a portable bar cart or build a custom outdoor bar with shelves, a sink, and a mini-fridge. 

Add bar stools, a chalkboard for drink menus, and some decorative touches to complete the look and feel of having your own authentic backyard bar hangout! 

Accompany Your Custom Pool With Cozy Surroundings 

If you have a custom pool design already installed in your backyard, you certainly have a focal point for any backyard party. However, a proper pool party is never complete without accompanying your pool with the coziest furnishing and decorative accessories! 

Spacious loveseats and sofas, cushioned wicker furniture sets, patio umbrellas, decorative ottomans; All of these outdoor furniture features and more are essential for creating a more inviting ambiance that accentuates your pool’s enticement! 

Assemble the Ultimate Gamer’s Lounge 

Looking to keep your family and guests entertained throughout the evening? Building out your own gamer’s lounge area in your backyard is the perfect way to keep people of all ages occupied and excited during your outdoor living space get-togethers! 

For starters, you can start the party by installing a horseshoe pit, a bocce ball court, or a cornhole board. If you have a pergola with a roof hanging overhead, this can be the perfect spot to hang up a dartboard, set up a table tennis table, or put in a brand-new pool table. 

Just be sure that there is ample seating for your guests to spectate all the fun and games, and install a storage unit of sorts for all the gaming equipment.

Spread Out Gathering Areas 

An underrated quality of a perfect party is providing multiple areas for people to mingle and fraternize with one another. That’s why you shouldn’t be afraid to spread the party out by designing various gathering areas or hangout locations all throughout your backyard! 

Perhaps in the middle of your backyard, you can install a decorative fire bowl surrounded by luxury seating that’s ideal for intimate conversations. 

Maybe you can designate a corner of your backyard to be the ultimate game zone, complete with exciting yard games while surrounding your guests with elaborate garden landscaping that will leave them in awe. 

Or, for late-night hangouts, having your own tiki lounge for evening cocktails and showing off your vinyl record collection can keep the party going as late as you want! 

Create the Ultimate Home Theater Experience 

Remember going to the drive-in theater every summer? Something is enchanting about sitting under the stars and watching your favorite movies on the big screen. 

So why not create movie magic by installing your home theater in your outdoor living space? 

For starters, be sure to invest in a quality outdoor projector and a retractable screen. Forget lawn chairs; provide cozy seating options like bean bags, outdoor sofas, or even a DIY pallet seating area. 

Purchase a popcorn machine to exceed the expectations of your audience truly, and be sure to invest in a state-of-the-art surround sound system that can replicate the experience of watching a movie in the theater!

Extravagant Landscape Lighting 

You know what can damper the mood at any party? Not being able to see anything! 

That’s why every at-home party hangout needs illuminating landscape lighting to brighten every backyard get-together's mood (and vision). 

Setting up string lighting fixtures to light up your patio or specific landscaping features will always provide a festive backdrop for your at-home hangs. You can also brighten up all the walkways or pathways surrounding your home’s exterior to ensure a more accessible and visually stimulating walking environment. 

Just be sure to incorporate landscape lighting that illuminates your backyard nightlife and highlights all of your decorative home exterior features!
