utdoor rooms today often must function like indoor rooms. at is why outdoor kitchens are now equipped with identi- cal capabilities as indoor kitchens. It is why audio and visual media on porches and decks are as good (or better) than those found in great rooms. e same is true with comfort in outdoor spaces. Remodelers today are putting even more thought and planning into light and heat considerations. Qualied Remodeler research this year gauged the most desirable outdoor living products. It revealed varying lev- els of interest in many types of lighting—from security •ood lights to accents like bistro-style string lights. On a scale of 1 to 10, with 10 being the highest need, the average scores varied—under-rail lighting (4.4), sconce lighting (4.7), solar-powered lighting (5.3), path lighting (5.9), spot-lighting (4.7) and accent lighting (5.7). Security and •ood lighting scored the highest at 6.5. Heat & Light With outdoor living projects growing in both scope and scale, lighting and temperature considerations require more attention than ever.
