Embracing the Outdoor Room Concept
The notion of the “outdoor room” continues to be a prevailing trend in 2024. Homeowners are investing substantially in transforming their outdoor spaces into functional extensions of their homes. The concept centers on creating versatile, multipurpose areas that foster family gatherings, entertaining, and relaxing. From outdoor kitchens and bars to seating arrangements and entertainment areas, these spaces are designed to be enjoyed year-round, maximizing square footage and providing comfort.

Space Planning
The success of an outdoor room hinges on strategic spatial planning, especially regarding flow and connectivity. Careful placement of stairs, for instance, is key to ensuring seamless traffic flow to the different spaces within decks of varying sizes. Space planning will foster ease of movement and encourage interaction in the different areas of an outdoor space.

Evolving Outdoor Kitchens
Outdoor kitchens have undergone a significant transformation, surpassing their traditional role as an area to grill. Homeowners now demand sophisticated features, such as extended counter spaces and integrated appliances, creating collaborative spaces that allow hosts and guests to engage in meal preparation and conversations simultaneously.

Color Preferences
Regional nuances dictate color preferences, with varying trends emerging across different parts of the country. While some areas lean towards earthy tones like browns and khaki, others prefer lighter colors or minimalist palettes. The move towards neutrals and muted shades allows for versatile design accents and easy updates in line with evolving trends.

Privacy Walls, Shade Structures, and Heating Elements 
Privacy walls and shade structures are in high demand, serving dual purposes of privacy and weather protection while offering opportunities for creative design expression. Effortlessly elevate privacy and style with our easy-to-install Privacy Screen System, offering a variety of panel styles and double-sided slat colors for a personalized touch. Additionally, outdoor heaters and fire features are increasingly popular, extending the usability of outdoor spaces into colder months and creating inviting atmospheres for gatherings.

Elevated Dock Spaces
Docks are no longer just functional spaces for boats; they've evolved into versatile areas for socializing and connection. Our mineral-based composite decking, powered by our patented Surestone™ Technology, provides durable, water-resistant decking options ideal for these waterfront settings, combining style with functionality.
