This contemporary outdoor kitchen features a stacked stone island with a sleek waterfall countertop. Chic barstools line the island for casual dining, and a large grill creates ultimate barbecuing potential.
A small outdoor kitchen is still plenty big enough for entertaining friends and family. Six black stools line the bar, while a pretty wooden bench nearby can provide extra seating when needed. Beautiful landscaping improves the view and surrounds the area with a lovely floral scent.
The swings-as-barstools idea in this modern kitchen came from the family's travels – they saw similar swings in a bar and never forgot them. The kitchen was designed to be a fun space for the parents, their kids and their friends. Since they often entertain, the goal was to make the kitchen and living room one open, flexible space with an airy feel and a strong connection to the outdoor view.
As seen on HGTV's House Hunters Renovation, homeowners Tyler Goeckner-Zoeller and his girlfriend Arielle Pugmire were both happy to find a house on a cul-de-sac with lots of outdoor space and more than one bathroom. Here, their beautiful kitchen features white and gray decor punctuated by turquoise leather barstools.
This outdoor space rests on the roof deck of a historic Chicago building on Lake Shore Drive. The space features blue-cushioned lounge chairs, colorful planters and an outdoor bar area. Overlooking a gorgeous view, this deck is perfect for hosting parties and entertaining.
Two islands work double duty as both prep areas during grilling and bar seating. A sink sits next to the grill for easy access. Industrial barstools stay out of the elements when not in use under this outdoor island.
The large pergola allows for plenty of shade in this outdoor space, while the lounge area is perfect for those looking to soak up some sun. This outdoor lounge includes plenty of seating and is perfect for large crowds.
Cushioned, wrought iron barstools surround this outdoor bar with a sleek countertop and rock base that blends in perfectly with the natural, rustic surroundings. With stunning mountain views and a nearby infinity pool, it's the ideal spot for entertaining friends and family.
Custom hand-carved stone statues add an artistic element to this outdoor space with swimming pool. A decorative concrete staining technique using acid chemical stains tints the concrete plinths and nearby fire bowls to match the look of the aged statue fountains. Black iridescent glass with charcoal gray grout surrounds the spa that spills into channels and back to pool.
