I almost feel guilty covering this topic now, in the midst of fall weather moving into KY. However, a little inspiration now can provide proper planning for how to make the extension of our home more enjoyable once spring rolls around again.
Outdoor kitchens are a major trend right now. Depending on your budget, you can go from simple (a brick grill surround and outdoor fireplace) all the way to elaborate (concrete countertops, stainless refrigerator, sink, all the bells & whistles). Not only are outdoor kitchens enjoyable, but they often raise the value of a home and make the property more appealing to potential buyers when selling.
Bringing the indoors out provides additional space to relax outside the confines of your walls. Plus, you're friends and neighbors will be jealous of your gorgeous backyard oasis. Happy Sprucing!
