Design & Construction Week in Las Vegas is a great place to find exciting new ideas and products for your home. Here are some of our favorite outdoor living trends.

The Latest Outdoor Living Trends 

Decking is a great way to extend your outdoor living space, and we learned about some products that make it a breeze! MoistureShield’s CoolDeck boards have technology that reduces heat by up to 35% — perfect for your bare feet in the summertime. Moreover, the composite material means you don’t have to worry about water damage or rotting.

To save you time during installation, CAMO has a solution with hidden deck clips. EdgeClips are extremely strong and even come with a precision guide for your drill.

Once you’ve got the deck built, let the neighborhood know what’s cooking with an outdoor kitchen! If you’re not sure of what to get, Trex has one that’s fully customizable to your deck, plus they’ve designed new fire and water features to enjoy.

Or, why not try a stainless-steel outdoor kitchen from Danver? It comes in distinct colors and realistic wood grain, with powder-coated finishes. To add more style, the folks at Caeserstone have new quartz countertops specifically designed for outdoor living. Best of all? They’re low maintenance and sustainable.

But if you want a serious renovation, including an addition to your home, try Permabase cement backerboard from National Gypsum. We love this product because it allows you to apply stucco directly to the board, saving time and money. And you can use the insulated version for increased efficiency and savings!

Making an Impression

Want to make a good impression with the front of your house? There’s no easier way to create a welcoming entry than with a new front door. Therma-Tru doors offer composite frames that won’t absorb moisture, so no more worrying about rotting, warping or water damage.

If you prefer a traditional wood door, Simpson helps you create a custom a look. So, check out their user-friendly website that helps you select the right style and color for your home.

Of course, the finishing touch for any exterior door is a beautiful and functional screen. Wizard Screens offers options for all types of doors and is the perfect way to enjoy fresh outdoor air without the pests!

Finally, top off your curb appeal with a new exterior light fixture! We love Kichler’s selection — and they offer a variety of styles to fit any home.

With a great deck, outdoor kitchen, and stunning entryway, you’re ready to invite the whole family over to get together and enjoy your outdoor living space!
