                      Outdoor Kitchen Concepts

    Outdoor Living continues to prevail as a major trend as buyers remodel backyard patios and add on outdoor kitchens to make the outdoor encounter more pleasurable. Outdoor rooms are an extension of the family, living and recreational rooms. Expansive doorways are helping to make a seamless transition from the interior of the home to the exterior living space. It has never been easier to coordinate outdoor furniture and fabrics with the indoor furniture because of the varied selection of durable, weather resistant designer fabrics and trims. People are mixing and matching solid fabrics with patterned designs, while adding textures, fringes, bullion, cording and tassels.
