The Clean, Professional Look of Stainless Steel Goes Outside

(ARA) - Vivid Caribbean-inspired accent colors in the home are hot this season. From azure blue rugs to sunset red upholstery, brighter is better in every room of the house. When it comes to home appliances, the hottest color trend for 2004 isn't a color at all -- it's metallic.

Taking the cue from professional-grade refrigerators, stoves and cook-tops found in high-end restaurants and test kitchens, more homeowners are opting for the clean, industrial look of stainless steel, both inside and outside of the house.

Because Americans are spending more of their leisure time outside, the trend has migrated to patios and decks where professional-style outdoor equipment such as heavy-duty stainless steel grills, patio heaters and exterior fans have become part of the entertaining landscape.

Although stainless steel represents professional quality, these metallic products don't necessarily have to be expensive. "Affordable luxury" defines a new line of stainless steel grills from Char-Broil, for example, that cost less than $500. Char-Broil's Terrace Grande grill pairs a metallic fašade with black steel accents and a stylized lid design, communicating high quality without the professional price tag. With this updated look come features of a standard outdoor grill.

"The Terrace Grande and our other stainless steel grills are becoming some of our most sought after products," says Rob Schwing of Char-Broil. "Being able to stylishly furnish their backyard is becoming more and more important to our customers."

The idea of creating a luxurious outdoor room with the new metallic trend might be less daunting with affordable options like those from Char-Broil. Just invite over family and friends, relax and have a good time outside.
