Outdoor Fold Down Bar Ideas to Transform Your Yard

The outdoor bar is a popular pastime. Here you can meet up with good friends and have a great time in this sweet place of summer. And if you live in the city, it can be a welcome escape from the summer heat, especially if you don’t have a garden at home. But what if you’re a little further from the city or prefer entertaining at home to going out? Well, build your own bar of course!

In this blog post, we’ll look at three types of home bars (that are somewhat realistic for the average homeowner!) and how you can recreate them in your own backyard before those sultry summer nights.

It may seem a little over the top, but a good bar should match your garden renovation plans in both style and size, and this can really make or break the type of bar you want to create. Create a plan drawing for an outdoor bar that includes the rest of your yard to scale. These plans will help determine the best angle in the garden, both for entertaining and making the most of the sunshine.

Once you have an idea of size, visit Pinterest and Instagram and take a look at the different styles others have designed. If you’re hiring help, it’s worth asking them for advice and benefiting from their experience. If you’re planning a DIY project, check out important tutorials on YouTube.

How you build it really depends on the level of complication you want to achieve. However, you always need a solid foundation. If you don’t have space yet, we recommend that you start by laying a concrete base that is the right size for your creation, level and silky smooth. For more information, see our dedicated outdoor guide in our knowledge base.

Next, you’ll want to tile your room. This makes maintenance easier and the tiles last longer even with lots of foot traffic and of course the British weather!

Once your foundation is complete, you will want to begin building your structure. Always remember to treat your wood structure appropriately to ensure it lasts for many years. Regular maintenance is required. If you don’t have much time, you might think about simplifying the overall design.

As we are in the UK and the weather can be somewhat unpredictable, we would recommend choosing a full roof structure rather than an open pergola. In this case, you could make a feature of it and choose corrugated iron, but if you want something to blend in, then you might feel it like a shed.
