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.
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.
The poolhouse features a sunken design, which gives a different perspective of the landscape, as well as heightened connectivity between activities.The poolhouse has all the comforts of home: an outdoor TV, wood burning fireplace, bathroom/changing room, storage room, full fridge and a high-end kitchen with a martini sink. Storm shutters drop down with a push of a button to provide protection on a stormy night or keep the sun out in the late afternoon. The three main arches facing the pool have screens as well to block the sun and reduce wind.
