Four Outdoor Amenities that Go Well with Audio and Video
The Great Outdoors Is More Fun with Your Favorite Entertainment
As spring rolls into the Chicagoland area, it's time to shed winter's heavy coats and accouterments and enjoy a little more time outside. And this is the time you might be looking at adding something to make your outdoor areas at home more inviting and entertaining in the warmer months.
Whether you are looking to extend the patio, build a fireplace, add a pool, or renovate the landscape, may we suggest that all of these go better with audio and video entertainment. Bringing music, movies, shows, and other pastimes outdoors will help you make the most of your outdoor investment and spend more time outside. Keep reading below to see how outdoor audio and video add the crowning touch to all the alfresco activities in your Naperville home.
A New Patio
Are you extending or building a new patio or seating area? Maybe you’re looking to add an outdoor fireplace or fire table? Outdoor audio is the perfect complement to your new amenity. You can add speakers in adjacent landscaped areas that hide among shrubs and flower beds, providing a rich soundtrack to your entertainment. Why not add a TV too? Outdoor models can sit in both full-sun and full-shade areas and anything in-between. Extend the days and nights outside, keeping up with everything from news to sports to your favorite workout routine.
An Outdoor Kitchen
Kitchens are the modern home hub. You can make it that way outdoors, too. Outdoor speakers can be installed on a wall, in the ceiling, or adjacent areas around the kitchen. Put on a favorite playlist for grilling the perfect steak or catch up on news or a podcast. Or go all out in your outdoor kitchen with a bar area for entertaining. Add a TV for the bar, and you now have your outdoor hub for a mix of cocktails, cooking, and entertainment that doesn’t let up, day or night.
A New Pool
One of the ultimate outdoor amenities, the pool pleases in many ways, from aesthetics to exercise to entertainment. Adding sound is a plus to all things pool related. Relax in the sun to music, throw a rollicking pool party, or play background classical music softly for a relaxing scene even when nothing is going on, all it takes is outdoor speakers! You can choose from speakers disguised as rocks to bollards that are like modern tower speakers for the outdoors. Did we mention you can add an outdoor TV that you can watch from the pool?
Whether your water feature is part of your pool, the landscape, or the patio, it's another opportunity to augment the soundtrack. Few things are more calming than flowing water, except the sound of flowing water complemented by your favorite calming music. Create your own outdoor Zen with speakers around your fountain, stream, or bubbler. From rock speakers to landscape speakers to bullet speakers mounted on trees, there are many ways to add sound to water features.
Make sure you enjoy your open-air entertainment to the fullest by incorporating outdoor access points for your network. This will allow you to have complete access to your internet connection from outside and, with the right equipment, effortlessly control your music and outdoor TV from your smartphone. Perfect to enjoy the sunshine on those days working from home, or simply surf the web while breathing some fresh air!
