Making the Most of Your Space with Outdoor Exterior
Do you have an outdoor eatery, or do you have an outdoor choice for your guest as an addition to your indoor choice? Are you planning on getting started on your outdoor exterior soon?
Urban areas are highly populated areas with houses and residences crowding into each other. This leaves many city dwellers to have no lawn to relax and take a breather. Clean air and just lounge in the outside, especially in the summer, is a change of scenery we all need.
For people living in an urban area, they cannot have this opportunity as much as they want. Instead, many depend on restaurants and cafés that offer an outdoor experience even just for a while to dine or drink.
Sometimes restaurant building has some spaces that can still be utilized for an outdoor experience. Even though small, an exclusive space might intrigue more customers.
Front Yard Patio
Depends on your location, you can choose several outdoor exteriors for your patio. If you are located in a seashore, you’d want to make your open area to face the sea. Offer the scenery as people will sit down and enjoy their meal.
Don’t forget to make it instagrammable.
Social media affect every layer of the community. Showing what they are doing and what they feel are common among even the older generation of people. That is why make your front yard patio to be as beautiful as possible complementing the sea view you are offering.
Then there is your backyard. Especially if your restaurant is located amidst the busy city life, you might have a backyard patio instead of a front yard patio.
With a backyard patio, you cannot boost any natural view the earth can offer men. However, you can make it a romantic garden dining experience instead. Depend on the space you have in your backyard, you could make it several people only area or an open area for anyone of your visitors. A secret garden with exclusive access will make people feel special, but giving the chance for everyone to feel the garden is wholesome too.
Even an unused open rooftop may give you an advantage. Instead of deserting it, why not make a bar instead?
You can convert your rooftop into a seating area with a dedicated bar in it. Make your rooftop outdoor exterior with the kind of vibe you’d project will suit the surrounding of your building and you are good to go.
Long benches or other lounge chairs might be best for this bar. Side table and even ottoman can also complete the look. You might want to give shade in some areas to provide for some guests who’d prefer to be under the protection of shading.
Waiting Area Outdoor Exterior
The concept of an outdoor waiting area is to make room for more people or sometimes to make use of the space available. This waiting area is suitable for high traffic businesses with limited spaces indoor. Instead of benches and tandem seating, individual armchairs will look more sophisticated. Occasionally put some tables in between chairs too to give a surface so that people may put their belonging on it.
Outdoor Exterior for Café
This type of café puts ‘scenery’ in the main menu of their design. With the same relaxing ambiance, you can get from the usual café, an outdoor café adds a natural feeling.
Outdoor café table will be best made of wood or the mixing of the wood surface and metal legs. If you are planning on making a permanent table, you should consider installing a canopy to shade your table from the sun and the weather.
Unlike restaurant patio design and concept, outdoor café is best with wooden or metal chairs without cushion. This will enhance the natural feeling better with its rawness. You might even consider using bamboo as a material. Though, bamboo will be beautiful as partitions as well.
The canopy provided much-needed shade for your furniture in the open area. Your furniture may be weather-resistant, but it is not invincible. UV from sun rays can also damage your property. That is why a canopy is very essential for permanent furniture that can’t be stored when the weather is at its worst.
Some guests might need and appreciate it as well. As much as people want to see nature in their surroundings, most of the time people need to be protected from the sun.
- Order counter
The order counter for an outdoor café is usually located in the front part of the area along with the kitchen. You can add stools or benches to give seating for people who wait for their turn.
The Right Furniture for Outdoor Exterior
Not all furniture can survive outdoor. Couches, sofas, and loveseat are not made for outside. Their color will fade faster and the fabric might wear off or even crack under the heat of the sun. That is why choosing furniture for your outdoor exterior needs some planning too.
- Make a List
How do you want your outdoor exterior would be? What function does it serve? Do you want an outdoor space that serves a dining area? Or do you want it to be a casual cocktail area such as a rooftop bar mentioned above?
Each concept would bring about different kinds of furniture. A dining area will require you to provide tables and chairs, while a casual cocktail area may need lounge chairs and side tables.
If you are pursuing furniture for your private garden, then metal chairs and benches that are durable under the sun might be your choice. You can also choose wooden furniture and put weatherproof through its surface to make it last longer.
- Choose the Right Furniture
Seasons coming and going will affect your outdoor exterior. To that extent, the weather will affect your furniture too. Great furniture will last you through season changes and keep the comfort it provides just like it holds the first time you buy it.
The first thing you need to consider is the material selection of your furniture.
Wood is sturdy and comfortable. It gives your exterior a more traditional look and if your concept is natural, wood will compliment it greatly. However, wood requires regular maintenance. They are not resistant to weather changes and UV after all. Several kinds of wood like teak, cedar, and redwood may require less maintenance as they are more weather resistant. If you think they fit your design, then those are the woods for you.
Steel and wrought iron are two materials that have been used for centuries in the patio. They are extremely sturdy but both can rust. A weatherproof finish is needed periodically to prevent rust from forming.
Aluminum and plastic are a popular material for furniture nowadays. They are more affordable and easy to maintain. However, since they are lightweight, you may need to secure them from winds.
These materials tend to look fresh for years. Keep in mind though, no matter how weatherproof they are or how much you put weatherproof on them, you still need to store them over winter. For summer, some canopies would be good too in some cases so you should consider that as well.
- Good Quality Furniture for Your Outdoor Exterior
