Materials Matter

Personalization is key when designing a signature outdoor space for the home. Consumers are no longer satisfied with the materials and aesthetics that dominated the market just a decade ago. Now, outdoor designs—from fully-outfitted kitchens to stand-alone bars and butler’s bars—must be made with the same caliber of materials and aesthetics homeowners decorate their interior spaces with, while still being able to withstand the elements.

These requirements are no small production feat, but since we make everything in-house at True Residential and benefit from a commercial arm with decades of experience in creating handcrafted, high-quality appliances, our indoor/outdoor units fit the bill. They are not only built to perform in any environment, but are designed with some serious style flexibility. While we cater to a wide range of tastes—offering 48 unique color combinations through our Build Your True program of custom finishes and hardware—homeowners in metropolitan/urban areas are increasingly seeking a modern aesthetic.
