When you’re a homeowner with a family, you likely already know that it’s important to get everyone outside from time to time to enjoy the outdoors. Unfortunately, it can be hard to figure out how to plan an outdoor living space that not only appeals to you but appeals to the rest of your family as well. That’s why we’ve done the brainstorming work for you. Here are a handful of great outdoor entertainment space ideas that can be enjoyed by the whole family.

1. Swimming Pool

This one may be a bit obvious, but everyone can enjoy swimming pools no matter how young or old you are. Especially with the Texas heat that last well into fall, there’s still plenty of time to have a swimming pool installed or renovate your current pool to make it a space you can spend more quality time as a family. Kids will easily spend hours upon hours in a pool, and adults can enjoy relaxing by the pool and taking a dip to cool off as well. You also get the benefit of increasing your home’s value when you invest in a swimming pool, and they will make your outdoor living space look much more inviting.

2. Concrete Patio

Concrete patios are a simple entertainment space the whole family can enjoy. You can install one that is large enough to include a sitting space for relaxation or an outdoor kitchen to cook meals for the whole family, as well as provide space for things like a basketball goal or even just open space for kids to draw on with chalk. This allows you to have an area that still looks refined and cozy without it feeling boring to children.

3. Treehouse

This option is definitely geared more towards the children in your family, but it can benefit you as well. Treehouses are the perfect things to get kids outside and in nature, which means you get to benefit from a little peace and quiet! A treehouse will give kids a good place to store their outdoor toys so they aren’t scattered across the backyard, and they won’t take up as much ground space so you can still have full access to your yard.

4. Porch Swing

Installing a nice, big porch onto your home will really boost your home’s value and curb appeal. It’s a great way to change the look of your home with just one project, and the great thing is, it’s a wonderful place for relaxation outdoors. Adding a porch swing will give you the perfect seating area for spending time with your family and friends and allow you to make wonderful memories with them.

5. Fire Pit

Fire features are well-loved by just about everyone. They give your yard a good focal point to gather around, and you can bask in the warmth of the fire, roast hot dogs and marshmallows, and tell stories. They can keep you warm year-round which is one of the biggest benefits of having one installed. They’re also just attractive additions, especially if placed on a patio or near an outdoor kitchen.

There are definitely some great options for making your home a space everyone can enjoy, and you don’t have to sacrifice your outdoor living space’s beauty to do so. You can truly get the best of both worlds with any of these additions.
