Whether you’re a casual fan or a die-hard, never-miss-a-game supporter, college football takes the sports world by storm every fall and provides the perfect excuse to get together with friends each weekend. As we look to spend more activities outdoors during the beautiful weather, an exterior living space with a flatscreen tv is an ideal location to root for your favorite team!

You’ve got your grill close by for delicious food, you can easily throw the old pigskin during commercial breaks, and it’s not a big deal if you spill food during touchdown celebrations. Of course, Horizon Stone veneer is an exceptional material choice to craft the cool, sophisticated outdoor space that will handle the elements with ease. You can appreciate these outdoor spaces perfect for fall football no matter what your favorite team colors are:

Outdoor Stone Kitchen

One of the biggest reasons we love to watch football together with our friends is chowing down on our favorite tailgate grub! You can design an outdoor space complete with a kitchen and grill to ensure that your guests never go hungry during the season– and you won’t have to miss a play. This striking combination of Ledgestone and Handcrafted series stone (below) is luxurious enough to improve your property’s bottom line while providing the ultimate culinary space for your resident gameday grill-master:

Stone Outdoor Space that is Projector Screen Suitable

When one flatscreen TV simply isn’t large enough for your crowd, consider a home theater projector combined with an outdoor projector screen! Not only do projectors provide an immersive viewing experience, but today’s models also have built-in apps that allow you to easily connect a streaming device, cable box, or TV tuner. This outdoor space created from 19th Century stone in color Hermitage (below) is perfect for setting up a projector to watch a nighttime kickoff under the stars! In addition to the ample seating, you have plenty of room to select your favorite viewing angle for a premium watch party:

Rain-Proof Relaxing Stone Porch

There’s no need to let the threat of afternoon showers put a damper on your outdoor college football marathon when you can design a space that’s prepared for precipitation! For this exterior space, charming Ledgestone columns in color Mossy Creek (below) support a sturdy roof that makes this covered area the prime location to catch all the gridiron glory without getting rained on. Combined with a full-size outdoor fireplace, it may be hard to get your guests to leave after the final play is called. Football never looked so chic!
