February 2019 | HARDWARE RETAILING 69 While outdoor kitchen remodels can be as basic or extensive as a homeowner desires, this project will continue to be on many wish lists in the years to come, Erickson predicts. "As people continue to invest in their homes, those that finish indoor projects will be more likely to take on outdoor living projects, like kitchens," he says. "Retailers should find out what their customers' plan is and help or recommend professionals to get difficult tasks knocked off their to-do lists." In Your Store Find ways to connect with other local businesses or contractors if you can't expand into all the necessary categories that create outdoor kitchens. Some projects may require a professional. • Be sure to check with your distributor to find out what special-order options you have to meet customers' needs if they come to you for the perfect finishing touch that you don't normally stock. Inside Out Kitchen and Bath helps customers add a variety of projects to their outdoor kitchen, like this fireplace installation with built-in seating.
