A hillside home in California designed by Scott Lee of SB Architects is a LEED for Homes Platinum-certified house with stunning architectural details, such as the beamed and vaulted ceiling and items made of recycled materials. The home, including the outdoor kitchen, is defined by the relationship between indoors and out, with the use of wood and view-driven design.
Natural stone in a classic L shape is a stylish and functional base for this hardworking outdoor kitchen. Designer Scott Cohen incorporated all the entertaining essentials, including a gas grill, cooktop, ice drawer and wine refrigerator.
Like the walkways, the dining terrace is also made of Lilac Bluestone. It includes an outdoor kitchen designed to withstand the harsh Vermont winters with Corten steel and a cast concrete countertop. A kitchen garden conveniently borders the space.
Outdoor meals are nearly always comfortable because of this patio's careful design: The louvered roof can rotate as needed. There's a deluxe outdoor kitchen, that includes a pizza oven, as well as outdoor heaters and lighting.
When designing an outdoor kitchen with a built-in grill, the layout and width of the countertops can be expanded to accommodate a bar. This outdoor kitchen and bar area in Chicago uses Belgard products for the bar and flooring.
Interconnected barn-like structures, designed from stacked stone and rustic lumber, house the main living areas. A covered outdoor living space features comfortable seating areas, an outdoor fireplace and outdoor kitchen that overlook the beautiful Texas ranch.
Stainless steel appliances stand up to outdoor elements. KitchenAid designs drawers for utility, trash and extra storage for convenient grilling. A mini fridge and separate sink area help make this outdoor kitchen muti-functional.
On the lower patio, an outdoor kitchen and dining area was crated as an extension of the outdoor kitchen space. The styles and colors were chosen to complement the neutral, contemporary color palette of the home in order to create a cohesive design throughout the home's spaces.
A retractable door enables this kitchen and dining space to open onto the deck. This genius design instantly turns the deck into a functional outdoor entertaining area with immediate access to the kitchen.
