A home’s outdoor space is just as important to the property value as the interior of the home. When it comes to designing outdoor spaces for luxury real estate, homeowners typically want to splurge on every detail. 

There are myriad ways to upgrade your outdoor space. With the following ideas from Eide Industries, enhance your outdoor entertaining and add value to any high-end property. 

Pool or fountain

Every captivating outdoor space on a luxury property needs an amazing focal point around which to center the design. Outdoor elements such as a pool, water feature, or fountain can immediately capture attention and visually anchor your outdoor living area. Make your pool or fountain a central feature of your outdoor space for a standout design that will add value to your property.   

Bifold glass doors

When coming up with creative ideas for connecting the indoors to the outside, consider bifold glass doors. While bifold doors can give you unobstructed views of your outdoor space when closed, they can also literally open up to the outside, enhancing the indoor-outdoor connection. This is an excellent option for hosting gatherings or simply enjoying the weather. 

Outdoor kitchen

Outdoor kitchens for your backyard entertaining space are popular for adding value to your home. An excellent way to make entertaining easier and more enjoyable, outdoor kitchens allow you to cook for and visit with guests without having to go in and out of the house. In addition to an outdoor grill, you can also include an outdoor stove, refrigerator, sink, prep counters, and more.


Designing outdoor furniture into your backyard can add value to your home. There are many options for outdoor seating and tables, but you can also install built-in seating (usually made of stone, concrete, metal, or wood) to further customize your outdoor space. Add comfy cushions and pillows to make the space pop against the natural surroundings, and be sure to include shade above with something like a retractable structure or pergola.


A cabana can instantly create an alluring lounge area for your outdoor space. While cabanas are functional in shading you from the sun or light rain, they can create a mini destination for your backyard with an air of luxury. 

Fire pit

The element of fire can add a lot to the ambiance of your outdoor space at night, whether it’s summer or winter while snuggling up on your comfy outdoor furniture on the patio. It’s a great way to create a conversation area and add value to your property.


Use outdoor lighting to your advantage for your outdoor entertaining area. In addition to general lighting, you can use a variety of uplighting and accent lighting to show off the beautiful details of your home’s exterior, your landscaping, and any other design features of the space.


Every home and every backyard boast a unique design; use your landscaping to further personalize and match with the style of your outdoor space. Beautiful landscaping such as a lush lawn that’s meticulously manicured and accented with trees, flowers, and plants can transform your outdoor space.

As you design your outdoor space, think about the value you’re adding to your property. But most importantly, keep in mind how you want to spend time in your backyard.
