The trend towards stylish outdoor living is growing every year. Bellacor, a leading online retailer of home lighting, furnishing and accessories for indoor- and outdoor-living, offers suggestions for making outdoor rooms livable for the whole family.

Today's homeowners are creating outdoor rooms that reflect their values and lifestyle. Outdoor living has taken root because people want to extend their living space and incorporate nature, not shut it out.

As the trend towards outdoor living increases, homeowners search for new inspiration and ideas for designing ideal outdoor spaces that suit their family. Bellacor, a leading online retailer of outdoor lighting, furnishings and home accessories, offers a few insights into transforming those dreams into reality.

According to Chris Fowler, Consumer Marketing Director for Bellacor, "Today's homeowners are creating outdoor rooms that reflect their values and lifestyle. Outdoor living has taken root because people want to extend their living space and incorporate nature, not shut it out." But outdoor rooms also need to be affordable, comfortable and have all the conveniences. That's where can help.

Summer time is an ideal season for any celebration; a time for family reunions and an opportunity for friends and neighbors to gather. A grill is a must-have for such occasions. For decks and patios, the Monarch Built-In BBQ by Fire Magic is perfect. It's built to handle party-size grilling and makes it easy to prepare whole meals outside. For smaller spaces, choices include a Portagrillo Portable Gas Grill or the portable Charcoal Gourmet Table Top grill.

Making outdoor areas livable also requires comfortable places to lounge, take a nap or eat. Bellacor's selection of Outdoor and Patio furniture, offers extensive options for seating, patio tables and umbrellas for any size deck or backyard. Outdoor lighting is another critical component to livability. Lighting of all kinds is available at, from landscape lighting to outdoor wall, deck and post lighting.

The urge to extend one's home into the outdoors is at least partly driven by the desire to experience nature and live in harmony with it. Today, it's easier than ever to be environmentally responsible and enjoy the natural world right outside your door. Be sure to visit Bellacor's Go Green pages for outdoor living products that are stylish and friendly to the environment.

For those who want their outdoor spaces to have a natural, woodsy charm, Bellacor recommends products made from sustainable resources like the practical Companion 54-inch Dining Table. Insect and rot resistant, as it ages, it develops a natural, rustic character reminiscent of cabin-style living. An aromatic wood fire in an Aspen Outdoor Fireplace will add to the impression of owning a private mountain retreat.

But enjoyment of the outdoors doesn't require a big back yard, deck or patio. Even just a small balcony can become an outdoor getaway with a simple Victorian Garden Chime and comfy, all-weather wicker Ciera Armchair. No balcony? Enjoy a picnic in the park before the 4th of July fireworks. The [Highlander Picnic Basket has all the essentials: a picnic blanket, dinner service for four, wine glasses, and more. Just pack-up an assortment of favorite summer foods and beverages and have a sun-filled afternoon.

The passion for outdoor living isn't a fad. It's a movement that continues to grow as people realize how easy, affordable and rewarding it is to expand their living space without adding rooms to the house. With Bellacor's huge selection of outdoor living products, shoppers are sure to find the perfect combination of value, comfort, convenience and style they want for their family's outdoor living spaces.
