As the weather warms, mastering the art of outdoor living becomes an increasingly prevalent focus from coast to coast. While just a decade ago this simply entailed coaxing flowers into bloom, decorating with chic planters and vessels, and refreshing your garden and outdoor seating options, today, it means an entirely different thing. Gone are the days of a throw-away grill and coolers—outdoor living now means an entire entertaining suite customized to your needs.


The kitchen might truly be the heart of the home, but where that kitchen is located is another issue altogether. At True Residential, we believe a kitchen should be wherever you want to entertain—and these days this means indoors and out, or even a space that transitions from indoors to out. Our UL-rated for indoors and outdoors undercounter units offer designers and homeowners unparalleled design flexibility—especially as they also just launched in our Build Your True program of custom finishes and hardware. But not to digress, our clients are investing in kitchen configurations indoors and out, and we are investing in them.

Our indoor/outdoor undercounter units, which range from 15” to 24”, provide a compact way to include everything one may need to supplement cooking and/or provide a full entertainment center outdoors. We recognized the growing demand for indoor/outdoor entertaining in the residential market at its earliest development which has left us in a unique place in the market. Our solutions-based products for chic outdoor living include a Wine Cabinet, a Beverage Center, spacious Refrigerator and Freezer drawers, a single and dual tap beer Beverage Dispenser, and the most efficient Clear Ice Machine on the market. From barbeques to pool parties, each of our units is designed with functionality, performance, and unparalleled style in mind. Not only do our units help homeowners increase gathering space square footage by allowing the kitchen to spill into or claim the outdoors as home, but it allows the hosts to take part in the festivities as well. From cocktail parties to food preparation stations, hosts are no longer relegated to a kitchen tucked away indoors.


And best of all? As we mentioned before, designers and homeowners can now apply our Build Your True program to each undercounter unit. The new shades we just introduced—emerald and ultra matte black—which we will touch on more in a subsequent post, join a wide array of available custom finishes in the Build Your True collection. They include Stainless Steel, Cobalt, Gloss Black, Matte Black, Matte White, and Antique White. Together with hardware options that include Chrome, Copper, Brass, Gold and Pewter—designers and homeowners can now choose from 48 unique combinations available in both full-size and undercounter units. Likewise, the added customization options to the undercounter units yields a variety of new stylish possibilities for indoor/outdoor bar and entertainment areas.

For a seriously True experience, we recommend visiting the True Customizer to visualize various customization options. Happy designing!

For those in New York next week, we will be exhibiting at The Architectural Digest & Design show from March 21–24th (booth 369). Come see our designs in person!
