A backyard outdoor bar table is a relaxing place to retreat to after a hard day. It is also an ideal place for an end weekend together. A backyard bar can be as simple as a pair of stools and a table, or as elaborate as an outdoor kitchen. Even the smallest patio can accommodate an outdoor bar. Start with these simple plan then add your own touches to organize a bar for your outdoor. The addition of an outdoor bar to your deck is a way to relive that experience. But there is more to it than just adding a table and a refrigerator. To truly capture that outdoor paradise, you must think outside the box. Here are some ideas for creative juices to flow. Buy a bar and bar stools that can support the items, even if your patio is covering.
Consider the use of high-end bar plastic to limit breakage. Place the bar close enough to a free air intake so you can install a mini-fridge under the bar. Consider placing the outdoor high top table right next to the house so you can use the plumbing in which to install a small sink to wash and prepare drinks. Use umbrellas, solar sails or a retractable awning to protect against the elements, or place the bar area under a large tree. Grow bushes to act as a barrier against the wind. Choose decorative patio lights, torches or outdoor lights with dimmers for romantic nights. Create the impression of an intimate room only by the lighting of the patio or terrace. Create a seating area with comfortable chairs and a table or the use of living rooms and side tables.
Place candles or lanterns on the tables. Buy furniture that can withstand the inclement weather. Purchase outdoor patio heaters or build a fireplace to expand the bar’s usage capacity in the colder seasons. If the patio bar sets clearance area is in a covered patio install a ceiling fan for warm days and nights. Use some form of insect control. Buy an insect exterminator or use citronella candles. Grow plants that provide natural protection from pests. Keep a hose on hand to clean up spills and to put out fires that are accidentally started by candles or torches. Use furniture and a moving bar in small yards that can be moved out of place folding when you need the yard for another purpose. Look outdoor bars and playground equipment in the home and garden stores.
