There’s more to outdoor living than sleeping in a tent!
Minnesota residents know three things: (1) Where “up north” is located; (2) That it’s called “pop” not “soda”; (3) And that the golden days of summer last about as long as $50 at Target so you better make the best of them. How to do that? Outdoor living.
This summer make the most of those precious sunny days and warm nights by revamping your outdoor living space with these trending backyard updates.
Gone are the days of the messy charcoal grill and splintery picnic table. This summer why not enjoy the convenience and appeal of entertaining in your outdoor kitchen? Incorporate gorgeous stone, natural brick pavers, and granite countertops into your cooking and dining area to echo the look and feel of nature that surrounds you.
Extend the season by adding a stunning outdoor fireplace to your space. Cozy up on cool nights while friends and family visit, toast marshmallows, or build decadent double-decker s’mores. Fireplaces using decorative stone and offering 360 degree surround seating are particularly “hot” right now.
Whether you’re jamming to Mozart or rockin’ to “The Boss,” an outdoor stereo system takes entertaining guests to a whole new level. A professionally installed low voltage speaker with a sub-terrain sub-woofer are what all the cool kids have these days.
Whether you want to add ambiance to your patio or security to your home’s perimeter, outdoor lighting is bigger than ever this season. LED lighting is at the top of everybody’s list, popular for their effect, low energy use, and programmable functionality.
