Entertainment in the great outdoors!
Now is a great time to be adding to your outdoor living spaces so you’re ready when the steady stream of guests are invited over for BBQs, graduation celebrations or to sip cocktails in the evening around the firepit.
If it’s getting hot, consider one of the hottest trends in home design – a more elegant outdoor entertainment space. A swimming pool and a well-appointed grilling station get the good times rolling, but how about adding music, lighting, and video when taking your parties—and even casual family dining—alfresco?
Music is a perfect companion for every outdoor area and activity. Today’s outdoor speakers can be hidden virtually anywhere. New wireless versions spread audio far and wide without the hassle of wires. And there’s more choice with speakers disguised as elegant light fixtures, rocks, and even planters. For control, the clear blue sky is the limit. You can stream songs through wireless music players to awesome quality speakers across the yard. With new control methods, you’ll tap an icon on your phone and never leave the volleyball game to adjust volume or skip to a more pumped up song.
On the video front, the latest TVs and flat screens come in remarkably robust designs that withstand the elements yet produce images bright enough to see on the sunniest of days. A weatherproof remote (you can even find one that floats on water) completes the package and can completely control the TV and music.
Last but not least, consider adding smart lighting to the landscape. In addition to making your yard look great and setting the mood, smart lighting is controllable from a keypad or smartphone, which adds a newfound layer of unbeatable home security protection.
