There’s so much to cover when it comes to the outdoor living trends that we had to break this down into two parts!

Without further ado, let’s get into part one of outdoor living trends of 2022!

Outdoor Living: Part 1

One of the best things you can do for your body is to get outside.

We’ve compiled a few ways that you can extend your living space outdoors! For the host or hostess in you, check out these functional spaces!

Lounging, but make it Outdoors

We know about modular homes (or maybe you don’t, click here to learn), but what about modular lounges?

The idea behind a modular lounge or couch is that you can reconfigure the layout to fit your taste or desire for that given evening.

Another perk with this type of seating is that they’re smaller and more easily maneuverable, meaning it can be a one person job to revamp your space.

You can buy all sorts of different modular lounge sets, but if you’re DIY-minded, there are lots of plans on Pinterest to take you step-by-step through a build.

When doing it yourself, you have the freedom to build and stain how you’d like.

Don’t be afraid to step out of your comfort zone to create your dream space!

Outdoor Kitchens

So you like the idea of outdoor lounging, but what about outdoor cooking? 

We’re not talking burgers on the charcoal grill (even though you can’t get much better than that)!

Think outside the box! Think stationary grills, griddles, pizza ovens, let the ideas fly.

Since we are trying to extend the living space outdoors, why stop at lounging when we can extend to the kitchen!

Bring your prep and cooking outdoors to a fun and inclusive environment to spend more time with your family and friends!

Here are a few trends to try in your new outdoor kitchen that’ll keep you up to date with 2022.

Stationary Grills

Stationary grills come in many shapes, sizes, and price ranges, so there’s something for everyone.

Our favorite type of stationary grill is an island grill with the bar-top attachment for seating and extra prep space.

You can grill and mingle at the same time, no more worrying about burning the burgers because you get distracted in conversation!


Two words: Hibachi Night.

Need we say more?

Hibachi isn’t the only thing you can do on a griddle, but it sure is one of our favorites! 

Maybe you’ve mastered the grill and you’re ready to branch out into a new style of cooking to spice up dinner time.

A griddle would be the perfect addition to your outdoor kitchen, not to mention it makes cooking for large quantities super easy.

Pizza Ovens

Can you imagine pizza nights during summer, but instead of Dominos pizza, it’s pizza that you made yourself!

You choose the seasonings and sauce, and unlimited toppings at NO EXTRA COST!

If you’re not already sold on a pizza oven because you’re afraid there’s no versatility, let me reassure you, it’s not only for pizza.

Basically anything you would do in a conventional oven, you can do in a pizza oven, there’s just more variation in temperature control.

Which makes it yet another area for you to broaden your culinary skills!


We love outdoor living and 2022 is such a big year for getting outside!
