Top New Outdoor Design Trends for 2014

Toronto, Canada (PRWEB), February 20, 2014 – Total Fence Inc., the leader in residential, industrial, and commercial fence and deck installation in the Greater Toronto Area, is weighing in on the top new outdoor design trends for 2014.

“While the Greater Toronto Area is still in the clutches of winter, spring is just around the corner, which means it’s not too early to start planning the remodelling of your backyard living space,” says Tony Defeo, owner of Total Fence Inc.

According to Defeo, homeowners in the post-recession economy are showing an increased interest in both quality and natural materials. Whereas over-the-top, showy designs were extremely popular a few years ago, scale is key to the designs of today.

“With summers being so short in Ontario, homeowners continue to blur the line between the inside and outside of homes,” he adds. “Adding a custom deck with a gourmet outdoor kitchen continues to grow in popularity as homeowners look to add more everyday living space to their homes and expand their living, cooking, and entertaining space.”

Defeo explains that homeowners are also looking for a space that embraces the outdoor environment and incorporates natural elements into deck spaces. A courtyard can showcase private amenities, including pools and fire pits, and can even be shifted to side yards. In addition, custom features, such as pergolas or arbours, can incorporate a private flower or vegetable garden.

“Whether the project is a small porch, elaborate multi-levelled deck, wraparound screened-in porch, or other custom carpentry project, the experts at Total Fence Inc. can show clients how to create style, comfort, privacy, and curb appeal,” Defeo concludes.
