Outdoor living areas are becoming increasingly popular, even in Wisconsin.  Regardless of our fluctuating climate, many Wisconsinites are making their home welcoming and comfortable both inside and out.  Here are some outdoor living trends that are possible and popular in Wisconsin!

Electronics

According to the 2011 American Society of Landscape Architects Residential Trends Survey, exterior lighting is the most popular outdoor living feature, as 96.2{447216cae66a4d332ab0ac71eb11e27716218036a4f422ac40162b059a195e14} of respondents rated it somewhat or very popular.  Also, nearly 60{447216cae66a4d332ab0ac71eb11e27716218036a4f422ac40162b059a195e14} of these respondents said the same for stereo systems.  Lighting and music can create a comfortable environment for all of your outdoor get-togethers.

Fire and Grills

You can build permanent outdoor fire pits and grills that are weatherized to last year-round in Wisconsin.  With the proper materials and shelter, you could even enjoy an outdoor fireplace.  The ASLA Residential Trends Survey revealed that 94{447216cae66a4d332ab0ac71eb11e27716218036a4f422ac40162b059a195e14} of respondents found fire and grills to be somewhat or very popular in outdoor living areas.

Seating and Furniture

Plastic lawn chairs and picnic tables are no longer your only options in outdoor furniture; you can now find everything from bar stools to sofas that are weatherized for outdoor use.  Modern furniture and dining areas will instantly bring warmth and comfort to your outdoor living areas.  Keep in mind, outdoor dining areas are extremely popular for barbeques or other get-togethers and they are much easier to clean than indoor areas.
