"If you had a beach cottage with wood paneling that you let weather and go rustic, this is what it would look like," he says. "I call it coastal distressed. ere's a certain beauty to that bleached wood look and it goes with the coast very well." As more contemporary homes are built along the coast, demand remains high for stainless steel – both for its durability and natural appearance. "e old stone and masonry design can look out of place in a modern home," says Sergio de Paula, president of Fogazzo Wood Fired Ovens & BBQs. He points to the transitive properties of his firm's bolted-down stainless steel cabinet systems, which can be easily uninstalled if homeowners should move or want to relocate their outdoor kitchens. "Masonry is more permanent and will literally last a lifetime, but it's cast in stone; it's not going anywhere," de Paula says. "With our stainless steel cabinet systems, you can move them or pick them up and take them with you to another home." "e rapidly growing trend in outdoor living is having a big impact on grilling," says Robert Dischner, senior vice president, marketing, of Fire Magic Grills, a market leader in American-made premium grill products for more than 75 years. "People are spending more time in, and money on, outdoor spaces and creating beautiful outdoor kitchens with all the luxuries and bells and whistles of indoor Outdoor Living K I T C H E N S & G R I L L S kitchens," he adds. e firm's collection of premium grills and accessories is made from the highest-grade stainless steel and designed for superior performance, versatility and durability. Some coastal homeowners are forced to renovate their homes to accommodate outdoor kitchens, but according to Bill Jones, president of Electri-Chef, others – specifically residents of new high-rise residential buildings – can buy a home with one already in place. Many architects and developers, says Jones, are building outdoor kitchens into their design plans and offering high-rise residences with home kitchens installed on patios and rooftop terraces. Electri-Chef's 220-volt electric grills are providing those residents with a high-quality outdoor cooking appliance that still adheres to strict fire codes. "Oceanfront condominium owners really want to enjoy the environment that they spend a lot of money to live in," says Jones. "We can now offer them a complete electric outdoor kitchen that operates on par with a gas or charcoal grill. People want to be outdoors to enjoy all that they love about it. is is just another element to keep them outside and entertaining."
