Given homeowners' affection for the kitchen and outdoor cooking, it is hardly surprising that outdoor kitchens remain one of the hottest trends in new home construction and remodels.
Gone are the days of fidgeting with hard-to-start, messy charcoal grills and broken starters on an antique propane grill. Today's outdoor kitchen consists of anything from classic built-in grills on a cozy backyard patio to a state-of-the-art kitchen with high tech appliances and gadgets that even include the kitchen sink!
We encourage you share you pictures of your outdoor living space and favorite barbeque recipes on The House Designers Facebook in preparation for one of the year's biggest outdoor celebrations. According to a recent Independence Day survey by the National Retail Federation more than 160 million people plan on staying home and celebrating the Fourth of July by hosting a cookout.

Green Living Tips
Installing an awning over your deck or patio area can really cut down on glare and on excess heat in the summertime. It will lead to greater comfort and help reduce the burden of cooling your home in the hotter months, which amount to long-term energy savings. Consider a retractable awning, to control light exposure at different times of the day, and in different seasons, too.
