#1. Custom Outdoor Kitchens 

Let’s kick things off with outdoor kitchens, which are soaring in popularity. Cooking and dining al fresco has become more than just an occasional treat; it’s a regular part of home life. This trend isn’t just about BBQs and pizza ovens anymore; we’re talking fully-equipped kitchens complete with refrigerators, sinks, and ample counter space. 

Our favorite things to include in an outdoor kitchen are:  

Whether you love grilling up a storm or prefer chilled backyard cocktails, an outdoor kitchen can add value to your home and make entertaining a breeze. 

#2. Sustainable Furniture  

The eco-conscious trend is extending to the great outdoors, with sustainable materials becoming increasingly popular in garden furniture. Homeowners are opting for furniture made from recycled materials, natural woods, and rattan, which not only looks good but also helps reduce our environmental impact. 

Don’t worry. Sustainability doesn’t mean sacrificing style or comfort. Modern sustainable furniture pieces offer durability and weather resistance, making them an excellent investment.

#3. Fireplaces 

To add both warmth and an engaging focal point, a patio firepit is utterly indispensable, no matter the season. While round firepits have often played the starring role, prepare for the new wave of grand fireplaces complete with hearth and surround arriving in 2024.  

Meanwhile, fire tables, an already popular choice, will expand their presence even further this year. These gas or electric fireplaces create the perfect gathering space, offering a visual feast, some added warmth on a cool evening, and a general ambiance of comfort. 

Plus, a new twist that has grabbed everyone’s attention, the petite tabletop firepit went viral in the past year, and anticipate its popularity soaring even higher in the forthcoming year, bringing an enchantment of its own to your outdoor spot.

#4. Warm Color Schemes  

When it comes to color schemes in outdoor décor, warm shades are all the rage. Earthy tones like rust, mustard, and terracotta help to create a cozy, welcoming atmosphere. 

You can incorporate these colors into your outdoor area through decorative throw pillows, blankets, ceramic plant pots, and even outdoor rugs.  

Accent pieces made of weather-resistant materials are not only trendy but also practical. Consider accent furniture in metal, teak, or resin, as they are durable enough to withstand outdoor conditions and richly hued to amplify your warm color scheme.  

What about lighting? Warm-toned lighting, such as soft orange or yellow, can create a cozy, inviting atmosphere. Whether it’s through traditional outdoor lanterns, path lighting, or even modern solar orbs, the choices for stylish and efficient lighting are endless.

#5. Creative Gardening  

Last but certainly not least, gardening continues to be a major trend for outdoor living, but in a more creative way. Vertical gardens, edible landscapes, and container gardening are hot right now. These unique and creative gardening methods don’t require a large space and bring a vibrant energy to your backyard, not to mention the added benefits of home-grown vegetables and herbs.  

So there you have it! A quick rundown of what’s trending in outdoor living for 2024. Incorporating these elements into your backyard will ensure you create an outdoor space that’s stylish, functional, and ahead of the curve.
