Be The Best Home’s Kathryn Emery On Outdoor Trends & Working With The Home Depot

Spring is here, and it’s the time of the year people yearn to be in their backyard, cooking under the blue sky, relaxing and dining, splashing in the pool, chilling with beverages, and altogether enjoying outdoor living spaces. Preparing home for the warmer months has changed through the years, drastically in the past decade. What we have today, simply wasn’t available then.

Many home products are designed and produced to deliver the quality you would typically only get inside, out. From grills with an oven grade glass lid to monitor food, to multi-layer, dual-density foam cushions on patio furniture, to an app to clean the pool, and new backyard party essentials to enhance the outdoor living space. Home improvement expert Kathryn Emery has been predicting trends and telling stories on television for The Home Depot for two decades and can show viewers of all backgrounds the must-have outside trends for 2019 and beyond.

Kathryn Emery served as Director of Public Relations for The Home Depot — the largest home improvement retailer in the world — before launching Be The Best Home, an in-demand lifestyle and home improvement consulting firm. Emery answered some questions for The Hype about public relations, outdoor living and Home Depot within our Q&A, as recorded on April 26, 2019.
