Eldorado Stone's online design tool can help you visualize your ideal backyard. Inspired by a magnetic design board, the tool allows you to drag and drop Eldorado Outdoor cabinets, walls, columns, fireplaces and fire pits in a variety of arrangements. You can also add appliances as well as stone or brick veneers to your design.

According to Kara Adams of Eldorado Stone, "The design tool is great for determining what will realistically fit in your space and what appliance combinations are possible." You start by creating space, which means you select a flooring material and enter the proper dimensions. Then you can add cabinets, a fireplace, walls, appliances and finally your choice of Eldorado Stone profiles. To ensure that your design is buildable, the tool knows what appliances will conflict with each other. For example, it doesn't allow you to place a sink over an outdoor refrigerator.

Adams notes that the design tool is useful for both homeowners and designers. "Many landscapers have their clients use the tool as a starting point for visualizing their project," she says. However, Adams stresses that the tool does not replace a professional design - there are still many other factors, such as elevations, plumbing and lighting, which need to be considered. Additionally, the appliances used in the tool are placeholders based off of standard dimensions, so double check the measurements of the ones you choose.
