A wet bar is another nice touch to creating a summertime oasis in your backyard. Make sure to clearly define your wet bar with running water, drinks on tap, ice maker, fridge etc…. To truly make it a wet bar versus a dry bar. Yes, a dryer bar is easier to achieve and maintain however a wet bar is classy and more interesting add more value to your home and summertime oasis. Comfortably keep your wet bar fully stock like pro with suggestions from The Guide to a Well-Stocked Wet Bar. I love this list because it is a complete list of everything you should have for the perfect wet bar even down to the type and number of glasses. Add or subtract to this list according to your desires however use this guide for the key to your wet bar. Consider a liqueur refrigerator and a non liqueur one and balance them out around a grill or fire pit. Have everything makes sense and let it flows correctly as it does inside your home.

The hot tub life can be grand whether you have seating for two, four, six or eight. I am particularly fun of the cup holder options and the extra jets. Go big and spoil yourself as well as your guest. Another fun options is to color coordinate your hot tub with your deck.
Party life should be very entertaining with all the above selections just make sure to invest in an awesome entertainment system complete with music, television and even a drop down movie screen for full enjoyment.
