4 Inspiring Outdoor Living Ideas for Your Backyard

At the end of a long day or when you’ve got free time to spend with family and friends, you’ll want to get outside and enjoy your backyard. But don’t let yourself be limited to a basic patio or decking area, there’s so much more you can get out of your backyard on top of it being somewhere you can sit when it’s sunny.

This month, at Morehead Pools, we’ll give you four inspiring outdoor living ideas to help you create a backyard you’ll never want to leave.

Outdoor Kitchen

If you’re tired of walking in and out of the house when hosting a BBQ or you just want to make more of the weather when it’s hot out, an outdoor kitchen is a perfect addition to your backyard. You can design your kitchen space outdoors to your specific taste, so whether you love grilling, smoking, or baking, you’ll be in your element as head chef.

Plus, with the addition of sinks and granite or quartz countertops, you can do all your preparation and cleaning in the wide-open space of your backyard as well.

Outdoor Fireplace

Extending the use of your backyard throughout the year, an outdoor fireplace brings warmth, light, and a touch of luxury to your outdoor living space. Imagine yourself reading beneath the stars late into the evening or entertaining friends into the night as you enjoy drinks around a roaring fire. You can easily get fire features that complement your backyard design, regardless of whether or not you have a pool.

Covered Living Spaces

Outdoor living is about more than just taking a dip in your pool, and with a covered living space you can spend more time outdoors than ever before. A covered space in your backyard gives you shelter from the elements, while also providing a place to relax, dry off and entertain. It’s also great in the heat of the summer as you can always continue to enjoy your backyard from a recliner in the shade until you’re ready for the sun again.

Entertainment Systems

If you’re a big sports fan, enjoy your music or you want another way to entertain and wow your guests, including an entertainment system in your outdoor living area is the way forward. Enjoy the big game on the big screen outdoors with friends or pump in the hottest tunes with a sound system that blends into the aesthetic of your pool area. However you set up your entertainment system, it’ll be your backyard where everyone wants to spend their free time.
