ATLANTA – Belgard Hardscapes has been selected to build the first-ever outdoor kitchen component of the fourth annual House Beautiful “Kitchen of the Year,” which will be unveiled in Rockefeller Plaza in New York City on July 18.

“The inclusion of an outdoor kitchen in this year’s showcase is a testament to the growing popularity of this segment of landscape design,” said Ken O’Neill, vice president of Belgard Hardscapes. “Outdoor living is becoming more and more an extension of the home, and we’re honored to have been chosen to demonstrate this trend of family life.”

Tyler Florence, renowned chef, Food Network host, and best-selling author has designed both the indoor and outdoor sections, which actually makes this year’s Kitchen of the Year two kitchens. Florence brings his rustic Northern California style to the design of the 1,000-square-foot state-of-the-art indoor kitchen and the 1,500-square-foot manufactured stone outdoor kitchen.

“We’re excited to have Tyler designing our Kitchen of the Year this summer. His personal style of creating a warm space the entire family will enjoy really resonates with our readers,” said Newell Turner, editor-in-chief of House Beautiful.

The showcase kitchen will be open daily to the public from Monday, July 18-Friday, July 22, where fans will have the opportunity to meet Tyler Florence at free events throughout the week. In addition, visitors will enjoy daily cooking demonstrations, tastings, kitchen tours, and design presentations. For design and cooking enthusiasts outside of the New York City area, the Kitchen of the Year will be featured online at www.housebeautiful.com/KOTY with videos, podcasts, and other special features.
