One of the luxury amenities the homeowners wanted in their space was an electric grill, so designers installed a custom area to meet their needs. Rich toned wood cabinets give the homeowners a place to store necessities, while the concealed ventilation system rushes smoke out of the home and into the outdoors.
A stacked stone fireplace and indoor grill are two features that bring distinction to this cozy sunroom. Though the room started as an outdoor patio with retractable shades, it evolved into an enclosed, climate-controlled space for the homeowners to enjoy lounging, grilling and watching TV. The design team kept the "outdoor room" feel by using indoor-outdoor furnishings, fabrics and materials.
A covered patio accessible through both a regular door and sliding doors extends the living space from inside to the outdoors. A grilling station is easily accessible from the kitchen, and a woven ceiling lets light in while offering protection from the hot Mexican sun.
Strategic furniture groupings separate this waterfront home's sunroom into distinct living and dining areas. A window next to the indoor grill lets the cook enjoy the amazing views while tending to the meal.
This beautiful covered porch features a cozy fireplace, convenient grilling area and patio furniture with cushions of a color that is found indoors. These furnishings and appointments, set against the blue sky at sunset, exemplify the skills of Mary DeWalt, whose designs always make an unexpected and lovely statement.
This outdoor kitchen rivals the grandest indoor ones with its chef-grade cooktop grill, oven, fridge and more. Mediterranean tiles add pretty color and a wood ceiling keeps the space safe from weather.
The transition between indoor and outdoor spaces is so graceful, it's almost indiscernible. Here, a glass door slides into the limestone wall and completely disappears to connect the kitchen with a covered porch that includes a grill and fireplace.
A back door and kitchen window leading to the deck make outdoor grilling a breeze. “There is a major indoor-outdoor living element in this house,” says interior designer Brian Patrick Flynn. “The pass through between the sink area in the kitchen and the grilling area on the deck is a great example, and what’s excellent about it is when its open and you’re grilling and you have friends over you can easily pass drinks and food out the window.”
This home features a detailed terrace that connects the indoor space to the outdoor space. Glass walls put the indoor dining room in view, creating symmetry between the spaces. The terrace includes a custom pergola, wood fire feature, grilling table and raised herb planter.
French doors allow access from the indoor kitchen to the outdoor kitchen, complete with a stainless steel grill, apron front sink and gorgeous views of Seattle. Inside, upper cabinets store glassware and cookbooks while the lower cabinets provide ample storage space for other kitchen essentials.
With all the amenities of an indoor kitchen along with the fresh breeze of the outdoors, this patio includes a wet bar, bar and stools, large grill and separate gas burner to entertain family and friends. Plus, the space is close to the party so the chef can stay involved in the festivities.
