Current Outdoor Living Trends

Outdoor living is the epitome of luxury, and it has become even more crucial in the wake of the pandemic. With more people spending time at home, it’s nice to have a space where you can engage in hobbies, host gatherings, read a book, exercise, cook, and partake in other leisurely activities while enjoying the benefits of fresh air and sunshine. The current outdoor living trends have adapted to this new stay-at-home lifestyle, and include:

Outdoor Kitchens

When homeowners plan outdoor areas, 60% aim to upgrade their existing spaces to provide more functionality, and adding outdoor kitchens is the most in-demand way to do that. There are two types of outdoor kitchens to choose from: satellite kitchens and independent kitchens. Satellite kitchens provide additional cooking elements, such as pizza ovens and grills, while independent kitchens include a sink, refrigeration, prep space, and storage. Take into account your goals, budget, and space when considering which type of outdoor kitchen to add to your home.


Millions of people begun gardening during the pandemic as a way to pass the time, whether it was to yield edible vegetables or beautiful flowers. Greenhouses, pergolas, patio covers, and arbors are just a few of the structures that are ideal for gardens and have become even more popular in recent years.

Outdoor Technology

Technology has permeated nearly every facet of everyday life, including outdoor living. Activities like streaming movies, listening to music, and working from home have many people amplifying their Wi-Fi signal outdoors and creating entirely new spaces—like outdoor theaters and home offices—to their backyards.

Year-Round Gathering

Covid has encouraged people to stay home and increased demand for outdoor living spaces where friends and loved ones can gather year-round. That’s why it’s no surprise that the most requested features for enhanced outdoor living spaces are expanded and upgraded seating, fireplaces, firepits, and weather protection.
