Small, special design elements make a house into a home. This rustic stone sink near a garden is built in an asymmetrical manner, making it look like an element from a centuries-old structure. The round window is unique and cheery.
The rough tile base of this outdoor kitchen compliments the rough finish on the retaining wall for a beautiful texture effect. The smooth, bright blue marble countertop is a gorgeous texture contrast and adds bright color to the design. A marble panel slides over the built-in sink opening for extra work space.
Bronzed faucets, white-washed cabinets and steel sink create a classic traditional look in this bright, airy kitchen. Bare windows allow an abundance of natural light into the space and offer an outdoor view that makes dish washing less of a chore.
A long wall, that had separated the kitchen from the living space, was removed as well, creating the opportunity to add a large island that helps define the space. Corbels on either side of the columns adds an architectural touch that mimics that on the outdoor columns, and helps further delineate the space.
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.
There's no need to ever leave the patio with a fully-equipped grill station just steps away from the dining table. Complete with a sink, refrigerator and grill, this mini kitchen makes dinner outside a breeze.
Originally a guest house, this space was converted into an indoor-outdoor cabana with Carrara marble and French White Oak accents, a custom wet bar complete with a sink, refrigerator, ice machine, storage, and 20-foot-long glass doors that pocket.
Moroccan-inspired moldings and bright patterned tile lends an Old World feel to this outdoor kitchen. The crew of HGTV's Bang for Your Buck added a stainless steel grill, gas cooktop, sink and dishwater for thoroughly modern cooking power.
