What's Trending In Outdoor Living for 2018

Across the country, homeowners are going all in for the outside, all year long. Here are the top ways to transform your exterior into a four-season extension of home sweet home.

Comfy Cozy

Embrace hygge—the Scandinavian term for a feeling of coziness and comfort. Inspired accents like plush cushions and protective pergolas will beckon you and your guests to unwind. For a truly Danish look, pair earth-tone boards with chunky woolens and nubby linens in soft shades of ivory.

Commercial Goes Residential

Modernists, take note: bring home the look of your favorite commercial architecture, be it a five-star hotel or chic rooftop bar. Our all-new rod rail allows for the panoramic views of cable railing, but with a high-end, industrial touch.

Hide & Chic

Why not keep everything at hand and out of plain sight? With styles ranging from romantic to deco, lattice panels enhance privacy and conceal unsightly views. Customized outdoor cabinetry and storage solutions can hide everything from trash bins to sports equipment to that essential gas grill hook-up.

Fun & Games

Outdoor leisure spaces for all ages are on the rise. Play up your playtime with swimming pools, embedded sandboxes, regulation cornhole courts, horseshoe pits and dedicated areas for volleyball, badminton and bocce ball.

Minimal Maintenance, Maximum Enjoyment

Just because people are spending more time outdoors doesn’t mean they’re willing to put in extra hours for care and maintenance. Enter Trex. Unlike wood, our high-performance composite boards need only the occasional soap-and-water cleaning.
