Back yards are being transformed into luxurious extensions of the house. They're the new favorite room to relax, entertain, and cook.
The outdoor living craze is the result of North America's interest in 'cocooning,' the trend toward a more casual lifestyle, an aging population and the popularity of porches, decks, and patios, according to the Hearth, Patio, and Barbecue Association.
The Pool and Spa Institute says an increasing number of homeowners are going all out with outdoor kitchens, furnished seating areas fireplaces, pizza ovens, elaborate water features, and more.
While many Americans choose concrete for their patios, many are extending concrete to pizza ovens, bartops, and outdoor seating, including benches and tables.
"Concrete is one of the oldest, strongest and most durable materials that humans have ever made. Because it is mixed and poured, its variations and design potentials are almost infinite ... Applications are limited only by the imagination."
