The contemporary home is changing—it is the restaurant, the workplace, the gym, the family zone all wrapped into one. And with the return of entertaining, the longing for connection and a beautiful space in which to connect is stronger than ever.
“Over the past year, we’ve also seen peoples’ homes transform from a place to sleep into a safe haven, a sanctuary,” says Lyle Perry, President of Kerrisdale Lumber Home. “Of course, people will start to travel more and be at home a bit less than they have been, but having a home base be their ‘everything’ may be a trend we continue to see.”
More and more, homeowners and multi-family developments need their outdoor spaces to be as fully functional and beautiful as their indoor spaces, and as more multi-family developments spring up around Vancouver, families want to make the most of their spaces.
“We want to show customers that the outdoor kitchen is part of their home,” Perry says. “It is an extension of their living space and not a separate part of the home that should be forgotten about.”
Adding a small outdoor kitchen in a single-family home can increase the value of property for future selling purposes, and the options for replicating an indoor kitchen outdoors are nearly endless.
“Elements like outdoor fridges for hot summer nights and cozy fire tables for the chill in the fall evenings can transform your space and encourage more time outdoors in your extended kitchen,” Reza Mofakham, General Manager of Kerrisdale Lumber Home. “Our team of outdoor living experts have worked on hundreds of high-end custom outdoor kitchen builds and can offer custom plans for nearly any space.”
