The 2023 Outdoor Living Report, produced by Brown Jordan Outdoor Kitchens in partnership with The Harris Poll, demonstrates what we have known all along...  

Outdoor Living is Here to Stay! 

Outdoor Living has steadily been building momentum and highly sought after for the past twenty years as reported in Architectural  Digest.  The demand for Outdoor Living continues to soar in the wake of the pandemic and does not appear to be slowing down.  This means outdoor living is here to stay, and even an expected feature when purchasing a home. 

One of the best investments to make in a home

Over seventy-five percent of Americans report that when looking for a new home, they would prioritize purchase of a home with an Outdoor Living space over one that did not have one.  Historically, kitchens and baths have been the primary focus when looking for a home.  However, potential homeowners are increasing their budgets for outdoor spaces. 

Bolder, Brighter colors with Durable, Sustainable Materials

Surveying over 2,000 Americans, 69% see outdoor kitchens as an opportunity for different color selections compared with their interiors, and 77% embrace the opportunity to depart from more traditional options for their outdoor design.  While a large percentage of Americans see Outdoor Living and Entertainment as a space to get creative, still 30% of the people surveyed prefer to have a more 'traditional' style.

Backyards as Resort Outdoor Spaces to Escape To

Over half of all surveyed report their design inspiration comes from resort hotels for their ideal outdoor living space.  Homeowners are now looking to create an everyday escape in the outdoor living of their backyards.  Currently, on the trend horizon are backyard bars with 40% expressing interest, and 45% note a preferred shift to more Zen-inspired escapes.
