A sure way to make your home one-of-a-kind is to personalize your backyard. Your outdoor living space is an extension of your home that can serve multiple functions, such as a private sanctuary for relaxation or an elegant oasis for evening entertaining. From an irresistible sunken fire pit to a fabulous al-fresco dining room that feels like the Tuscan countryside, these cool backyard must-haves are hot with high-end homeowners this summer. Here’s an overview of some of summer’s hottest luxury outdoor trends as we start our five-part series on fabulous transformations that will make you fall in love with your outdoor living area.

Outdoor Kitchen

You have a fabulous kitchen inside, now have a fabulous cooking area outside! Take entertaining, barbecuing and unwinding after a long day to an entirely new level by turning your grilling area into a resort-worthy gourmet kitchen with all the latest bells and whistles for everything from fall-off-the-bone ribs to beer on tap. Your next outdoor party will be convenient and hassle-free so you can spend your time where it matters – with your loved ones.

Outdoor Fireplaces and Fire Pits

Outdoor fireplaces and fire pits can easily become the focal point of any backyard with stunning, customizable styles in various finishes such as stone, brick or stucco. Additionally, during a cool night out, fireplaces and fire pits provide a warm and cozy ambiance for outdoor gatherings with family and friends.

Pool House

With summer right around the corner, transform your pool experience from ordinary to amazing with a one-of-a-kind pool house. Customize your pool house to meet your family’s unique needs and desires — from a simple addition like a changing area and bathroom to a game room with storage space for pool equipment. Add a complete bedroom, bathroom and kitchenette, and the pool house can also double as a guest house for family and friends, giving them – and you – their own space when they visit.

High-end Outdoor Furniture

Furniture is essential to any outdoor space and should be functional while complementing the space aesthetically. One of the keys is to have furniture that looks vibrant throughout the seasons and over years. It is important to invest in durable, well-built furniture that is complemented with high-quality fabrics. Whether you’re shopping for outdoor cushions, pillows, or umbrella canopies, look for fabrics that will maintain their quality while weathering the seasons. Rediscovering and revamping your yard gives you an opportunity to enjoy some of the latest luxury outdoor trends in style, color, and materials while creating a comfy oasis for you and your guests.

Outdoor Technology

Cutting-edge technology is not confined to interior spaces — you can enjoy the same accessibility and connectivity when you’re outside reclining by the pool as you do when you are in your kitchen. Automated, voice-controlled, audio, lighting, water features and other amenities let you be in control without ever leaving your pool raft.
