If your new home has a backyard deck or patio, you’re well on your way to hosting the best summer party in town. If you’re looking to sell your Tampa area home, staging your back yard to be as inviting and festive as possible can result in a quicker sale.
Make it Barefoot Friendly
Whether your yard features a deck, porch or patio, you’ll want it to be pleasant for bare feet. Keep concrete clean and patch any holes or pits. Replace cracked tiles or pavers, and sand any rough spots in your decking.
Provide Shade for Guests
If your yard doesn’t have an awning to protect you from sun and rain, you have plenty of other options. Shade sails, which are quick and easy to install, come in an array of shapes, colors and sizes. Umbrellas are another great option to keep the sun from roasting you and your guests.
Places to Sit and Relax in the Yard
Outdoor furniture ranges from inexpensive folding chairs to heavy wood or metal seating. Whatever you choose, go for comfort and style. Cushions can add color while padding hard seating surfaces. Ottomans, storage benches and porch swings are all popular choices for an inviting outdoor living space.
Food and Drinks Outside
Most outdoor gatherings revolve around the grill, so it deserves a prime location in your yard. A sturdy table next to the grill will provide the chef a place to cut, chop, stir and prepare foods. It’s also a great place for condiments and salads, so your eating table has room for guests with plates.
On the other side of the grill, set out a festive ice tub filled with drinks. Much more festive than a cooler, and more convenient too. By surrounding the grill with food and drink items, you can also help parents keep their little ones from burning themselves on a hot grill.
