Outdoor Dining Remodeling Ideas [Infographic]

Romantic, festive, and family-friendly inspiration for dining al fresco.

If you’re like many homeowners in the Madison-area, the dining room in your home gets a break in the summertime. Grilling and outdoor dining seasons are in full swing, and we want to take every opportunity we can to soak up those warm evenings under the stars. If you’ve been thinking about outdoor dining remodeling ideas to make your space more romantic, festive, or family-friendly, read on for inspiration that will make your warm-weather dinners even more enjoyable.

One of our outdoor dining remodeling ideas is to build pergola for a romantic hideaway in your backyard.

Romantic Hideaway

Are you after a quiet, serene space where you and your special someone can spend a romantic evening at home? Then you may want to create a romantic hideaway right in your backyard. Work with a licensed contractor to construct a pergola featuring plenty of lush vegetation and garden cover. Hang flowing outdoor curtain panels, string lights, and install a water feature or outdoor fireplace to help create the right mood.

Ready to Party

If festive backyard summer soirees are on your agenda, create an outdoor dining space complete with a chef’s kitchen so you can cook and entertain at the same time. Instead of a formal dining table, serve dinner at the bar. When you’re hosting a movie night or fall football party, there’s no need to take the party indoors. Install a big-screen TV, fireplace, and comfortable lounge seating for viewing. 

Family Friendly

For a family-friendly feel, use a creative landscape design that will allow you to place your outdoor dining space near play areas. A raised patio under a shade tree offers a perfect spot for your table and chairs. Add a swing to a sturdy branch for the kids to enjoy the summer breeze while dinner is cooking. Plant grass on the lower level for enjoying barefoot lawn games after your meal.
