What You Will Learn
Prime patio season is right around the corner, and outdoor entertaining will once again take center stage. Last summer was a banner year for backyard renovations, and we forecast even greater demand in 2022 and beyond. The great outdoors offers extended living space, a semblance of escape, and a safe place to come together.
Outdoor living is becoming a three-season or, in some cases, all-season affair. Adding an outdoor patio heater, fireplace, or three-season room extends the season. Draw inspiration from your favorite resorts with amenities that will keep clients comfortable under the stars. For larger estates, consider a secondary easy-access grill near the home for evening grilling.
Outdoor kitchens are more attainable than ever. There is a plethora of options in the world of outdoor kitchens and entertaining. Learn more about trending outdoor kitchen appliances, including gas and wood- fired pizza ovens, gas and alternate-fuel grills, wine coolers, and cocktail stations. Explore products that tailor to clients’ cooking styles, storage needs, and entertainment preferences. Whether you’re specifying a massive renovation or simply adding a grill to the backyard, personalizing your outdoor living area is an investment that can make a world of difference.
During this session, you will:
Establish the value of adding an outdoor kitchen to clients and other key constituencies.
Define outdoor appliances across five major categories: grilling, specialty cooking, cooling, storage, and clean-up.
Identify hot outdoor kitchen trends such as outdoor appliances with custom color and hardware, adding heaters to extend the season and a greater focus on permanent structures.
