If you love throwing dinner parties, consider decking your rooftop with a full dining set. Candlelight always works to set a romantic glow, yet this wired chandelier completes the look with unexpected glam.
If you’re a lucky rooftop owner with loads of space, go all out by creating an outdoor living room. This is perfect for entertaining a group of guests or playing family games under the sun all day long.
For the ultimate entertaining rooftop, combine seating and dining. Consider incorporating an overhang of sorts, just in case the weather turns bad during your party.
Of course, not all rooftops come with a ton of space. But even the smaller ones can be furnished with a sofa or chair, creating the perfect spot for an afternoon read.
Maybe you’ve always wanted a little patch of green. Create a garden space on your rooftop and accompany it with simple seating so you can enjoy a cocktail while overlooking your beautiful flowers.
Outside of basic seating and entertaining amenities, there are a few other elements you may want to consider. A fireplace will keep you warm and cozy late into the evening.
A grill and minifridge prevent the hassle of going back and forth from your kitchen indoors, making it much easier to dine on the rooftop. I wouldn’t mind flipping burgers with this view on a lovely summer evening.
In terms of aesthetics, don’t fear going bold. Make a statement with an unexpected color, like this bright orange. Weather-resistant materials are available in a large variety of options these days, allowing you to choose one that makes just the impact you desire.
Consider different layouts. Instead of incorporating freestanding chaise longues, add built-in benches around the perimeter to free up space without compromising seating.
Choose a rug made of weather-resistant artificial grass. It provides texture and color, and you'll feel as if you’re sitting in a backyard.
