Outdoor Dining Designs
Food tastes better outdoors, but that is only the case if you have a dining design that you love. If you’re ready to transform your outdoor dining space from so-so to amazing, use one of these designs. Then, you will fall in love with your outdoor space and feel excited every time you get to use it.
Old Meets New
If you have Old World stonework around your patio, you have the perfect opportunity to bring the Old World and modern world together. Add in modern patio furniture with bright colors to play off the stone. Bright colors pop against stone, creating a look that homeowners love.
Go Back to the Victorian Era
The Victorian era is always in vogue, so consider using some Victorian design elements for your outdoor dining space. Use neutral colors that blend in with one another for the color scheme, and consider a gray arbor frame to accentuate your focal point. Then, include cast aluminum furniture to get the look of wrought iron without the weight. The finished look will be elegant and beautiful.
You can feel like you’re at the Jersey Shore day and night by turning your outdoor dining space into a tropical paradise. Place tall tropical plants around the dining space, and then add in some light and airy wicker furniture to complete the look. Your dining space will transport you to the beach every time you go out for a meal. Best of all, you won’t have to hang up a wet bathing suit or wash the sand out of your hair when you’re done eating. You’ll get the beach vibe without the beach mess with this look.
Get Rustic and Romantic
If you want to add a little bit of romance to your dining area, you don’t have to fill it with flowers and hearts. No, you can get all of the romance you want by going rustic. Teak patio furniture will help you begin the look. Then, take it to the next level with extras, like pillar candles. Before you know it, your backyard space will be perfect for that rustic yet romantic meal for two.
Go Intimate and Cozy
Do you love intimate and cozy meals with friends and family? If so, a pavilion is just what you need. The sunlight will still peak through the pavilion’s beams so you can enjoy natural light during your meal. At the same time, it will make the space feel intimate and cozy. Throw in a few candles, and you will have a cozy meal to remember.
Add a Natural Chandelier
Show off your creative side by adding a natural chandelier to your next outdoor dinner party. This is so easy, it’s amazing that more people don’t do it. Prune your trees and shrubs, and then turn the clippings into a chandelier. Hang the chandelier from a tree branch so it dangles over the table. Your guests will be amazed by how coolly creative you are.
If you’re the type who likes to have big parties with lots of friends, you know how bothersome it can be to find seating for everyone. People have to bring chairs in from inside, and that throws off the flow of your outside space. You can avoid this problem by adding two long tables to your patio. Connect them for a grand outdoor dining space. Then, you can seat lots of people at your next function. The flow will be much better, and entertaining will be more fun than ever.
Don’t Forget the Bar
If you entertain a lot, you can add an outdoor bar to your outdoor dining area. Choose to have a standalone bar or incorporate it into the dining area. Some people even choose to have the bar with seats, and then a separate dining area with additional seats. When you only have a few people over, everyone can eat at the bar. When you have more guests, you can move to the larger dining table.
