Outdoor Trends for the New Year

The top outdoor trends for 2020 focus on ways to comfortably enjoy being out in nature. Consumers looking to furnish ceiling-less rooms want convenience and durability paired with respect for the environment more than ever before. Product designs for the new year are all about sustainability and ease. Furniture made responsibly in earth tones, outdoor appliances that use natural fuel and eliminate treks to the indoor kitchen, and smart-home connectivity all are in top demand for outdoor living.

Outdoor Furniture and Decor

For 2020, outdoor rooms need to feel as comfortable as, if not more so, than indoor rooms. Furniture pieces with a sturdy, no-nonsense design in colors found in nature are preferred. The keyword in outdoor furniture this time of year is eco-friendly and durable. Consumers want pieces that will last and look good year after year.

The days of the solo charcoal or propane barbecue grill on a patio are over. Today's grillers want the latest options for delicious food. That leads us to the latest trend in barbecues, cooking with wood. Understanding smoke is the key to flavorful meat and real wood is the way to get the most beneficial smoke; Traeger WiFIRE® enabled grills are the top-of-the-line in wood-pellet burning grills. The WiFIRE® technology allows users to monitor and adjust the grill from any location using Wi-Fi and the Traeger smartphone app. The makers of the Traeger grill have been in the wood-burning grill business for the last 30 years and their Pro-, Ironwood-, and Timberline series are the first to offer this capability. 

Flat Top Cooking

The BBQ Hack Griddle Hack is a great accessory to go along with the grill. What this handy product does is allow the barbecue grill to be used as a griddle without having to close the lid. The Griddle Hack sits on top of the grill while heat is directed upwards rather than around it. This is useful for adapting the grill to activities like making breakfast outdoors.
