How to Get Your Home Ready for Summer Entertaining

How-to-Design-Backyard-for-Summer-Entertaining Design Your Backyard for Summer Entertaining
It’s March, and for people living in Arizona, that means it’s time to start getting ready for warm weather entertaining. Living in such a beautiful city gives us the opportunity to have BBQ’s and outdoor gatherings at our homes as early as February and March. But how do you get your home ready for summer entertaining? Is there an area of your home you should focus on specifically? Don’t stress. Here at Imperial, we have the materials and expertise to help you get your home ready for whatever entertaining needs you may have, just in time for the warm spring and summer months! Here are a couple of ideas to help you get your home’s summer transformation underway:

Summer Entertaining in the Backyard

1. Make sure your patio is ready for hosting. Summer means being outdoors and enjoying the weather, but an inadequate patio can make this difficult. Installing a flagstone patio can help you solve this issue. Flagstone patios add beauty to your backyard while also providing a sturdy and durable surface to center your entertaining.

2. In the summer months, having artificial grass in your backyard can have numerous benefits. In addition to saving you money and effort keeping your yard looking in top condition, artificial turf for your backyard can stand up to the rigors of the summer entertaining season. Ensure green grass during the hot summer months with artificial grass.

Summer Entertaining in the Home

1. Is your kitchen ready for your friends and family to descend on it in search of food? Just about every summer gathering is sure to have food, but it is important that your kitchen is ready for entertaining. A solid and attractive counter-top is one way to improve your kitchen. Our Onyx counter tops provide a stunning surface to prepare your delicious food on while also adding beauty to your kitchen. Consider installing backlighting under your Onyx counter top for an even better experience.

2. When it comes to hosting a summer get together, things can get messy. Instead of fretting about keeping your flooring clean, install a durable and lasting tile, like porcelain. Stronger than hardwood and most tiles, porcelain tile allows you to focus on your guests instead of your home, and it comes in styles and patterns that give you the look of hardwood without the hassle.

General Summer Home Transformation Tips

  • Cover fireplace openings with candles and a painting. No need for an empty fireplace in the summer.
  • Complement your flagstone patio with flowers that thrive in the summer months.
  • Add string lighting to your backyard to give it that extra bit of beauty for when your gatherings carry on into the evening.
  • Make sure your grill is ready for barbecuing and cooking.
