Admittedly, dining outdoors is a dream. The words themselves are reminiscent of images of European sidewalk cafes, rooftop bars in major cities, and boardwalk restaurants overlooking the sea. However, if you are lucky enough to have your own outdoor space, you don’t have to go out and enjoy outdoor cuisine. All you need is a table, a chair and the company of your friends and family.
But if you want to make some improvements, there are many design options you can use to turn a simple outdoor dining area into a real dream space. Is that what we dare say? It rivals even the most beautiful garden restaurant in the world.
Ready to turn your outdoor space into a dining area worth booking? These 13 stylish outdoor environments are sure to inspire.
1. Built-In Bench Seating
The owner of the California Desert House uses built-in benches as the basis for outdoor dining areas. Rustic wooden tables, a set of vintage chairs and plenty of black and white pillows complete the space.
2. Moody Matte Black
The frosted black siding on the Pasadena house is stunning in itself, but maintaining the appearance throughout the space makes the impact stronger. Not only the French doors are painted black, but the simple matte black chairs echo the look.
3. Green Oasis
This four-person dining table is hidden in the backyard of this Spanish-style house in Los Angeles. The dining area is surrounded by potted greenery and is almost dreamy.
4. Hanging Lanterns
Although this sturdy table looks too sharp, non-slip chairs have been added to make the area warmer. The lantern hanging from the tree adds a weird feel to the backyard.
5. Take Cover
This alfresco dining space may be covered, but technically it is still outside. The owner of the house uses the ceiling by installing gorgeous chandelier, but the two-tone chair is also eye-catching.
6. The More the Merrier
The backyard is packed with seating areas, but still full of cohesion. Behind the classic dining table is a conversation area with matching sofas and hanging chairs.
