Parties - remember those things? The pandemic has put a stop to most large indoor gatherings, but 2021 is set to be the year when it’s once again safe for people to mingle in close quarters. That’s certainly the case for parties held outdoors.
With this in mind, let’s take a look at five amazing upgrades for hosting epic outdoor parties in 2021:
1 Build a Backyard Firepit
Even summer evenings have the potential to get a little chilly. Take steps to ensure outdoor party guests are comfortable all night by building a fire pit. Kits make it easy to do yourself, but hiring a professional ensures the job’s done right the first time. If building a backyard fire pit yourself, make sure to follow all necessary safety guidelines before getting started.
2 Build an Outdoor Kitchen
Outdoor kitchens are all the rage these days, and for good reasons. They’re safer than cooking indoors, keep the house from smelling like food for days and optimal for hosting outdoor parties. While the standard design includes a gas range, countertop space, and outdoor kitchen cabinets homeowners have the luxury of customizing their outdoor kitchens the way they want.
3 Build a Backyard Gazebo
A backyard gazebo is ideal for outdoor parties for a variety of reasons. For one thing, they provide shelter in the event of a surprise rain shower. They also shield guests from the sun on especially scorching summer days. Gazebos are also great for providing a stage for speakers and notable guests. Lastly, a backyard gazebo can be easily set up to serve as a dining area for barbecues and other outdoor meals.
4 Install Soundproof Fencing
Unless you happen to live in the middle of nowhere or have hearing-impaired neighbors, large outdoor gatherings run the risk of noise complaints. Rather than have your party interrupted by police asking everyone to quiet down, why not opt to install soundproof fencing around the perimeter of your backyard? While it’s still a good idea to keep music at an appropriate volume and ask guests to avoid screams and shouts, soundproof fencing will help muffle the noises of an outdoor gathering to the point where your neighbors will be able to sleep soundly into the night.
5 Install an in-ground Pool
When it comes to hosting epic outdoor gatherings, it doesn’t get much better than pool parties. Everyone loves getting into a nice clean swimming pool on a hot summer day, meaning an in-ground pool is sure to guarantee your outdoor parties are always a big splash. While a hefty investment - one which doesn’t increase property value as much as you might think - installing a pool has more than enough advantages to warrant your consideration.
Do you miss the days when you could host a large gathering of close friends? The good news is those days are making a comeback. In terms of providing a safe experience for guests, outdoor parties appear to be the best option. With this in mind, those with the means to do so should think about making improvements to their outdoor living space this year. That way, when it’s once again safe for people to mingle, you’ll be ready to host the epic post-pandemic party everyone has been looking forward to for months.
