4 Summer Updates for Your Outdoor Living Space

For many homeowners, outdoor entertaining is the only way to live. From March to October, if there’s an opportunity to move a party outdoors, you’re going to take it. There’s something about the backyard that makes birthday parties, summer cookouts, and graduation celebrations sizzle (and no, it’s not just the burger on the grill). Does your outdoor space need an update before this year’s entertaining season? Transform your outdoor space with these simple additions from Ace of Gray.  

4 Additions That Will Make Your Outdoor Living Space

  1. A new grill. When your old one starts to creak, it’s time for something fresh. Use the opportunity to talk your wife into that Big Green Egg you’ve always wanted. Trust us, she’ll love serving juicy, smoked salmon to friends and neighbors as much as you love cooking it.
  2. bench swingA swing. Think porch swings are just for the front porch? Think again. Hanging a porch swing in your outdoor living space gives the grill master a place to relax, the guests a place to chat, and the hostess a place to oversee events in peace. It also adds a classic, nostalgic feel to your outdoor space. Add colorful pillows to make that porch swing as inviting as it is elegant.
  3. Fire pits. One of the great outdoor living trends of the last few years, fire pits add a touch of fun to your entertaining space. Build one out of brick or stone or buy a freestanding iron fire pit for the backyard. Not only does it give the kids a place to roast marshmallows, it’s the perfect location to relax with a refreshing spring drink or a mug of hot cocoa in the fall.
  4. Finishing touches. Is your outdoor dining set looking a little drab? You don’t have to sacrifice it on the altar of home entertaining. Give it an easy update by hosing down the table and chairs, repainting the frames, and updating the style with a few throw pillows or a cozy blanket for cool nights.
