4 Ways to Enhance Your Outdoor Living Area for a Luxury Backyard




There's nothing quite like enjoying a beautiful summer night in your backyard, surrounded by friends and family. You've just finished grilling a delicious meal in your outdoor kitchen, and now you are gathered around, eating, drinking, and enjoying each other's company. The gentle breeze and the sound of laughter create the perfect atmosphere.

But why stop there? Elevate this scene even further. Let accent lighting illuminate the natural beauty of your yard, highlight the lush greenery, and showcase architectural features. An outdoor TV is ready to put on the big game or your favorite movie, creating a cozy outdoor theater. Meanwhile, a high-end audio system softly fills the air with your favorite songs, providing a soundtrack to the perfect evening. Here are four ways to take your outdoor living space to the next level.

  1. Elegant Outdoor Lighting
  • Description: Create a captivating ambiance with energy-efficient and stylish outdoor LED fixtures. Use a mix of accent, pathway, step, and uplighting to highlight landscaping, architectural features, and provide functional illumination.
  • Tips: Opt for smart lighting solutions that can be controlled remotely and set on schedules to enhance convenience and energy efficiency.
  • Recommended: Coastal Source for lighting solutions. Their product is elegant, hearty, and high-performance. We love its all-weather ruggedness, even in seaside communities.
  1. Resort Quality Outdoor Audio
  • Description: Enhance your outdoor entertainment experience with top-quality outdoor speakers and sound systems. Choose weather-resistant and high-performance audio equipment that delivers clear, powerful sound. Having two speakers cranking poor-quality audio will leave you and your guests underwhelmed. Consider a professionally designed and installed landscape audio system that evenly distributes audio throughout your property. These solutions can play at high volumes for a concert-like sound but also distribute sound evenly at low volumes so music can be heard, but conversations are not strained.  
  • Recommended: Look for brands like Coastal Source, JBL, Revel, or Tru-Audio
  1. Outdoor TV for All-Weather Viewing
  • Description: An outdoor TV can make your backyard the perfect place for watching movies, sports, and shows. Choose a weatherproof TV designed to withstand storms while delivering high-quality visuals.  4K TVs are now available and can handle frigid winter temperatures or stand up well to the heat of summer.  The better outdoor TVs offer different models for Full Sun, Partial Sun, and Full Shade. 
  • Recommended: Samsung “The Terrace”, SunBriteTV, Séura.
  • Installation Tips: Position the TV in a shaded area to reduce glare and enhance viewing comfort. Use a weatherproof TV cover for added protection when not in use.
  1. Luxury Outdoor Furniture
  • Description: Invest in durable, comfortable, and aesthetically pleasing outdoor furniture. Polywood offers a range of high-quality, eco-friendly furniture, perfect for creating a stylish and sustainable outdoor living space.
  • Recommended Products: We recommend Polywood products due to their balance of comfort and beauty. Their catalog is large including chairs, dining sets, and lounge furniture in many styles and colors.


Enhancing your outdoor entertainment area with these luxurious touches can transform your backyard into a haven of comfort and style. Whether you're hosting a party or enjoying a quiet evening, a well-designed outdoor space adds value and pleasure to your home.
