Outdoor living spaces for parties

Entertain With a View

Rate My Space user 10526375 created an incredible outdoor living space where the amenities are rivaled only by the breathtaking view. The pool/spa was custom-made and lifted by crane into its rooftop position; the deck was then constructed around it. To truly get the party started in style, this space also offers an outdoor kitchen and speakers placed strategically all-round for enjoying tunes while basking by the pool.

Paradise Found

Wow, what a space! This Hawaiian home boasts spectacular views and a party-ready indoor/outdoor lanai surrounding an infinity pool. Sliding glass panels between indoor and outdoor rooms can be folded back to create a seamless flow between the home's interior and exterior spaces. Rate My Space user icoffey says that \"Sunsets are a constant source of enjoyment in this indoor/outdoor house.\" We can imagine.

Party Under the Stars

This outdoor room in Arizona offers year-round entertaining possibilities. Four-watt, low-voltage lighting strung along a cedar frame illuminates the space without competing with breathtaking views of the desert night sky. A cozy weather-resistant sectional, dining table and outdoor kitchen make this patio an irresistible spot for a night cap. Design by Rate My Space user woodaz.

Tropical Staycation

Why travel to far-flung shores when paradise is in your own backyard? Rate My Space user detailedliving never has to pack their bags to enjoy a little resort-style R and R. A double-sided fireplace, multiple seating areas, pool with waterfalls (yes, plural) and an outdoor kitchen make this backyard everyone's favorite hangout.

Cozy Cottage Chic

Rate My Space user decormania put her painting talents to good use to create an outdoor lounge space that is relaxed and welcoming — an intimate spot to catch up with a friend over coffee or tea. The porch's vibrant splashes of citrus green update the setting's cottage appeal.

Party on the Patio

Al fresco entertaining is a snap with this outdoor kitchen and dining room; food can go straight from the grill to the table. An adjacent fireplace with seating group and bar-height table add extra seating and create multiple areas for partygoers to gather. Design by Rate My Space user bellaluxe.
