Parties in the kitchen are a thing of the past. Recent trends show that they are now moving out to your patio incorporating outdoor living features powered by propane. The American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA), says that fire pits and fireplaces were the most desired outdoor living structure. They estimate that 83% of consumers noted they have three or more outdoor accessories to compliment their grilling pastime. Grilling is integral to the American lifestyle. Fortunately, professional designers and builders can evaluate your outdoor space and create the perfect living area for your friends and family to spend their time in.
How Propane Helps Liven Your Outdoor Living Space
Developing Seamless Transitions
Ideally, people are looking for design consistency in their homes. Simply put – you would not want a contemporary indoor living space with tropical-style outdoor living. The outdoor space should reflect the style and decor of the inside of your home. Fireplaces and fire pits come in a wide variety of styles and designs to homeowners that can easily match the decor of the inside of their home.
Considering the Entire Space
Outdoor living areas come in all sorts of sizes, layouts, and shapes. Consider the entire area you have to work with. The best way to do this is by working with a designer. A deck or patio can be divided into separate areas to fit your lifestyle needs. This can easily be achieved by having one area with a propane-powered outdoor kitchen and dining space divided by a lounge area with a propane fireplace or fire pit. With an outdoor fire pit, you can even keep your guests warm and cozy on the chilliest of fall nights.
Selecting Personal Touches
Although kitchens, fireplaces, and pools are among the most popular applications for propane in the backyard – your options don’t end there! Some homeowners prefer more unique applications like fire columns and waterfalls. They complement the space as a beautiful centerpiece to admire.
