7 Tips To Help You Transform Your Outdoor Space Into an Entertainer’s Dream
Is there anything better than a Sunday summer session at home? With a Pinterest-worthy spread, homemade cocktails flowing, and laughs aplenty; if you ask us, staying in is the new going out.
If this sounds like how you’d like to spend your summer, check out our seven tips to help you transform your outdoor space into an entertainer’s dream, thanks to one of our favourite lifestyle brands, Amart Furniture.
1. Start with a good base
Wondering where to begin? Well, if you’re going to add one piece to your outdoor entertaining space, it’s smart to go back to basics and get your hands on a timeless table and chair set. The key to any great outdoor entertaining area is its ability to adapt to any occasion and start with pieces you’ll use time and time again.
An elevated bar table and matching chairs, like the San Lucas seven-piece set, is the perfect addition to any space and will be sure to be a set you hold onto for years to come.
Mindful of space? The Cueta five-piece set is equal parts stylish and practical to save space when you’re not hosting.
2. Make a statement
Now that we’ve got the basics down, it’s time to have some fun and make a statement with a bold piece of furniture that reflects the personality of your home.
If you’re looking to bring a feature piece into your outdoor area, the Teramo outdoor Day Bed Pod is exactly what you’re after. You and your guests will love lounging by the pool with a cocktail in hand soaking up some of that delightful sunshine.
Wanting to make a more subtle statement? Say hello to ultimate lounging relaxation with the Caymani Deck Chair. With a stylish rattan design and sturdy galvanised steel frame, this piece is the perfect addition to your entertaining area without being too loud. Why not grab two and make them a pair?
3. Stay sun safe
In the midst of curating the perfect menu and styling your entertaining setup to the nines, there’s one element every outdoor space needs to achieve the perfect event and that’s shade! Keeping hydrated and applying sunscreen are two musts throughout an Aussie summer, but having a shady spot within your entertaining area will really help you be the hostess with the mostest.
The Shade Master MK2 Round Umbrella is a stylish and flexible shade that allows you to tilt and rotate throughout the day to keep you cool and sun-safe. Available in both black and taupe, you can match this piece to any style you’ve created.
4. Channel your favourite summer destination
Had romantic affair in Florence with a handsome chef à la From Scratch that changed your life? Spent a summer sailing the sapphire Mediterranean sea and promised you’d never forget that feeling?
While we’re not discouraging you from jumping tabs to book a one-way ticket to Europe (you so should, by the way!) why not take inspiration from your favourite overseas experiences and bring them into your outdoor space?
This summer, we’re heading to the Greek Island of Corfu with Amart Furniture’s Corfu outdoor rug. Donned in Greece’s quintessential colours of navy blue and white, this rug is an easy way to bring a taste of Europe to your Australian backyard. Or perhaps we head to the south of France with the St Tropez-inspired, Cabo rug; the possibilities are endless!
5. Add some ambience
So, we have the foundations, we’ve added a statement and we’ve recreated a special memory from a summer vacation abroad, now it’s time to set the mood.
The Malcom Cast Iron Fire Pit will no doubt be a source of happiness throughout the cooler summer nights as you gather with friends and family, sharing stories and making memories.
The deep and wide bowl is both durable and long-lasting making it perfect for longer burning and entertaining.
6. Take care of your space
It’s all well and good to have a fab outdoor entertaining space that’s the envy of your neighbourhood, but what good is it if you don’t take care of it?
Protect your outdoor furniture from the elements with the Parks Lounge Setting Cover. Made with breathable mesh panels and pull string to firmly secure in place, this cover will keep it looking brand new for years to come.
7. Have fun
Think of your entertaining area as an extension of your home and allow it to reflect your unique style. Look to create a space that’s fun and you’ll be more inclined to use it throughout summer and beyond.
