Like a perennial shrub, the outdoor living category crops up on the retail radar with seasonal regularity. But as homeowners begin to spend more and more of their time outside, the entire concept of “outdoor living” has become more literal.
The demand is solidly in place for trimmings and products that allow homeowners to enjoy the same comforts of a kitchen or a living room on their deck or patio.
Here’s a smattering of products that can arguably play a role in creating this atmosphere. From the beer koozie to the treated decking that one drinks it on, these products all come together to form an experience that directly speaks to lifestyle trends in 2017.
GCI Outdoor Slim-Fold Cook Station
For tailgating needs (and all those other times when outdoor living is done on the fly), the Slim-Fold Cook Station can be assembled and broken down at will. It features an aluminum counter top, lower storage rack, four plastic fold-out side tables with beverage holders, stem glass holders and hooks for garbage or utensils. (gcioutdoor.com)
