Outdoor Home Retreat


Whatever the season, whatever the reason we’ve got some great ideas to inspire you to create a beautiful home retreat in your outdoor space. Everyone needs a place to enjoy peaceful solitude or reconnect with friends and family.

When creating your outdoor space, consider how you will use this space in real life. Is it just for lounging, dining, or both? Are your gatherings intimate? Do you like to host larger groups of kindred friends and family? These are questions you can ponder as you collect your ideas for your home retreat.

The Balance Begins with a Focal Point

Fireplaces are the epicenter of any space. Unquestionably inviting you to come and use the enticing seating and elevate your outdoor living. Adding an Amantii outdoor electric fireplace will extend the quality of time spent after the sun sets. Whether you choose to locate it in your dining, kitchen, or lounging area, it will be a perfect part of any outdoor design.

Outdoor Kitchen and Dining Ideas

Having a kitchen outside brings people together and lets everyone have a great time. From either a basic design or extravagant, outdoor kitchen and dining is at your fingertips.

Outdoor kitchens can include wine chillers, under counter refrigerators, pizza ovens, side burners, and/or warming drawers. Another design can simply incorporate a BBQ, sink, bar size fridge and counter space. It all depends on your real-life needs.

When more space is needed for food prep, add an island. This will free up countertops near your grill while also offering extra seating for larger gatherings. It will also create a more intimate layout that’s perfect for socializing as you cook. A rolling bar cart can act as a wet bar in your kitchen for your refreshments. Ambience lightning with a modern or rustic chandelier over the table and canopy lighting over the kitchen complete the look.

An enjoyable way to make your outdoor dining and kitchen area look amazing is to set the table with placemats, patio cushions, and place settings in your favorite color palette.

Before and After Lounging

Mix and match your design by experimenting with a variety of colors and furniture styles. Add your personal style with colored cushions, throw blankets and tabletop décor.

Use an attractive outdoor rug to add in defining the space. It is effective and inexpensive.

Display a mixture of container florals and greenery to bring botanical beauty and good vibes. Torches or lanterns around the perimeter add to the feel of comfort.

Arrange your furniture to enjoy the allure of your Amantii outdoor electric fireplace. Set a lamp on a small table with a cozy chair and a footstool, separate of your arrangement, and you have created a peaceful solitary oasis just for you. After all, you just finished designing a beautiful outdoor space!
