Outdoor Kitchens Will Be a Major Trend This Summer

Home improvements skyrocketed in 2020. After all, we were all spending a lot of time there. But if you still have a little way to go with your outdoor space, you might want to consider an outdoor kitchen.

John McClain, a home design professional, has found that what clients are asking for most are outdoor spaces that blur the line between interior and exterior.

“Our clients are looking for the exact same amenities that they currently have in their indoor spaces in their outdoor spaces,” McClain said in an interview with Forbes.

With more intimate, at-home gatherings remaining the norm for much of spring and summer, an outdoor kitchen would make entertaining a breeze. But kitchens aren’t the only indoor living space experts see moving outdoors.

According to McClain, living room-esque areas are also in demand, with “area rugs, comfortable furniture, beautiful lighting, cozy blankets, and enough flat surfaces to place food and drink on are essential.”

And if you really want to be on-trend with your indoor-to-outdoor space, don’t forget the macramé, cause the ’70s are back, baby!
