March 18, 2010

It is easy to find "Canned" or Mass produced outdoor products that will help you create your very own Outdoor Living Space, but it is more appealing to  create that unique setting with custom crafted and designed furniture and accessories that are unique, quality pieces to reflect your own individual Outdoor style.

Take for example an outdoor kitchen, this might not be something that you have considered, but if you enjoy cooking and eating outside, it would be an ideal complement to your home. Rather than buy a prefab BBQ grill,  create your very own unique outdoor kitchen by first choosing which layout best suits your needs and the outdoor space. You can choose from an island, a U-shaped center or an L-shaped island. There are numerous choices to be made from counter surfaces to building materials and outdoor appliances. Tile, concrete, slate and granite are some of the choices available. Your options are limitless, so spend some time creating the perfect outdoor kitchen that will complement your outdoor living space. Just as family and friend like to congregate in the kitchen inside your home, you will find that your guests will love to spend time with you in and around your outdoor kitchen.

Then consider your dining area, how many people would you like to be able to accommodate? There are round, square and large rectangular tables for any quantity, You have options to choose whether you want teak, aluminum, wicker, or wrought iron. Choices of color and fabrics are vast and you can have lots of fun selecting the perfect hues to create your dining space. Outdoor chandeliers, candlelabras and lighting is available for you to choose which style suits you best. Personally, I love candelabras that hang from the center of an outdoor room.

There will always be a selection of dining chairs for you to choose from, and then you can select which Outdoor Fabric matches your indoor style.  Sunbrella has a wide variety of choices, from solids, textures, jacquards and prints. Mixing and matching the fabric, while adding outdoor fringes, bullions and tape to accent your cushions, pillow and drapes will set your outdoor space apart from the rest.

Some of the best places to find the quality and custom designed furniture and accessories to create your outdoor kitchens and rooms are the casual furniture specialty retailers in your neighborhood.
