Spring is here! Create outdoor spaces that suit your lifestyle in 2015

As the weather improves, it’s a perfect time to highlight some trends for outdoor living in Spring/Summer 2015.  The idea of creating functional outdoor living spaces has been popular over the past few years and there are a tonne of new products that will help to ensure your space meets your needs.

Outdoor Kitchen Design Trends: 

Always a mainstay for entertaining, the kitchen is moving outdoors for 2015.  You no longer need to cook on a small bbq off to the side of your patio as creating new outdoor kitchen can bring all of the comforts of an indoor kitchen into your yard.

  • Like any kitchen, the quality of your appliances and installation will be foundation of your experience and you truly get what you pay for in an outdoor space.
  • Looks for products that are built to handle the elements as wind, sun and water will cause metal parts to rust and plastic parts to crack.  Longer lasting stainless steel products like these Broil Chef ranges , and outdoor natural gas appliances from BuildDirect.com are an excellent choice
