TRENDS
fully shielded luminaires that direct light beams downward are a positive
step in this environmentally oriented direction without compromising
safety. Th e easiest way to use LED outdoor lighting that doesn't contribute
to light pollution is to put the fi xtures on dimmers.
Exterior lighting can make life easier for unwelcome guests in an outdoor
living space, too. Bugs tend to be attracted to blue lights, UV lights
and LED lamps.
COMFORT & AMENITIES
With folks spending more time year-round outside, climate control is a
major comfort factor. Installed on the ceiling or wall, radiant electric heaters
are unobtrusive and emit little to no visible light, so they don't confl ict with
decorative lighting plans. Portable propane-powered heaters can be placed
where they're most needed.
Fans serve multiple purposes in outdoor living spaces. In addition to
providing cooling breezes, they can alleviate thick, humid air; disperse
smoke; and shoo away fl ying insects, which was the most-cited challenge
to enjoying an outdoor kitchen - mentioned by 29% of people in a poll
conducted by the National Kitchen & Bath Association (NKBA).
With more than 60% of respondents to the NKBA survey reporting an
Perhaps the ne plus ultra of shading structures
is a pergola with a roof of operable louvers
that can be manually or remotely controlled. Th e
smartest models have an embedded sensor array
that monitors and responds to changing weather
conditions. Th ey automatically close the louvers
when rain is detected, adjust them to mitigate
potentially damaging wind gusts and open them
wide to prevent snow and ice accumulation.
LET THERE BE LIGHTING
Illumination options vary greatly depending on
whether the outdoor living area is covered or not.
Th ere is a wide variety of lighting options for protected
areas, but it's wise to select damp-rated
designs even when placing fi xtures in sheltered
spaces. When lighting an open space, fi xtures that
are wet-rated are required by code. Post-mounted
lights are a practical option for brightening an uncovered
kitchen or dining space. For a destination
kitchen, stairstep and pathway lighting ensure safe
passage to and from the house.
Many states have enacted " dark skies " initiatives
to reduce nighttime light pollution. Using

outdoor TV at their home, it's clear that people are interested in al fresco
entertainment. Although most outdoor televisions boost the brightness
of the picture to off set the eff ects of glare and sun, designers need to think
about where the screen will be placed and whether it can be properly shaded.
Outdoor TVs come with recommendations for use in full sun, partial
sun, partial shade and full shade. Where the television is installed can also
aff ect how much weatherproofi ng it needs. Finally, it's important to know
if the TV is engineered to operate safely within local temperature ranges.
Audiophile clients may demand an outdoor-rated soundbar that makes
the experience of watching a movie or sporting event more immersive. You
could also opt for a more traditional audio setup with low-profi le speakers
or hidden speakers that are incorporated into the landscape or outdoor living
room. Wireless speakers are popular because of their clean appearance,
simplifi ed setup and smart tech functionality.
OUTDOOR KITCHENS
A Zillow survey of 1.4 million homes found that properties with an outdoor
pizza oven can sell for 3.4% more than expected, though any major
outdoor features, like a kitchen, smoker and patio bar also automatically
boost a property's desirability.
Homes with these features have been selling 39% faster than the same
period last year, according to data supplied by Realtor.com. Th e median
listing price for properties with these amenities ticked up 14.9% year-overyear
to $609,000 in 2021.
NKBA research indicates that 66% of outdoor kitchens are between 100
and 400 square feet; the area includes seating in the meal preparation space.
Outdoor kitchens that are larger than 400 square feet account for 22 % of
the survey, and 12% of homeowners report their outdoor kitchen is less
than 100 square feet. Whatever the size, it's key to maximize the potential
of the layout while tailoring it to the clients' cooking habits.
To a large extent, outdoor kitchens can follow the basic design principals
used in creating indoor kitchens, intelligently sequencing cooking zones,
wet zones, cold zones and storage/workspace to achieve effi ciency.
Russ Faulk, chief designer and head of product at Kalamazoo, shared
his approach. " First, there is a solution available for every outdoor cooking
