Using your outdoor living space for entertainment is a great way to spend time together with friends and family. But in the midst of the summer heat, it’s important to make sure your guests are comfortable. Adding shade to your living area will ensure your friends and family stay comfy and cool. For extra shade, consider adding an awning, pergola, or a large, decorative fan or umbrella. You might also consider investing in a roof over your deck or patio or a screened in enclosure, allowing everyone to enjoy the shaded comfort for years to come.

A Word from the Breyer Team
As you are planning your family get-togethers, our Breyer team encourages you to think about the lighting of you space. We feel that a well-designed outdoor living space deserves good lighting to add to your enjoyment and safety. Adding a few strands of twinkle lights or a bunch of tiki torches can instantly create a “homey” feeling to any space. To help further illuminate your deck or patio, add a low voltage LED lighting system that is relatively inexpensive and easy to operate. We hope this helpful tip will increase the enjoyment of your summer parties.
