When Mom said to go outside while it was nice, who would have thought we could take the TV outside with us? Outdoor living really adds to family fun. Here are pictures sent to use from 9 of our clients outdoor family living areas featuring an outdoor TV or theater screen.
Tip: There is a lot more sunlight in the outdoors than there is in the living room and glare can be problematic. For viewing, position the television so that the sun is behind you. It works best so the sunset will not be shining in your eyes. Providing some shade to keep the glare off the screen will also make viewing more pleasurable and comfortable.
“We could go interview all of our neighbors they could tell you that the Harbertsons were out here all summer long using this pavilion. I mean, we already used our backyard a lot. But this just doubled our usage. And it is great, you want kids here. You want to use your stuff. So it really helped extend the use of our backyard, and make it more functional. Even during the day, I could come sit out here by the pool and watch the kids swim and not be baked by the sun.” – Megan Harbertson – UT
