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.
Oxidized woven-steel is used to create a textured backdrop to the outdoor kitchen. Colorful tiles add southwestern flair and repeat the same colors used throughout the entire outdoor living space. Turquoise chairs surround the rustic dining table.
After: The homeowners now have an outdoor kitchen complete with a built-in gas grill with side burners, a Big Green Egg and a large commercial hood. The porch is designed by Mosaic Group to include a built-in trash receptacle and storage, along with a raised bar with bluestone countertops. The backsplash is tile.
This outdoor kitchen is adjacent to a new gravel patio with elevated vegetable gardens. This provides both better access to the garage as well as overflow space for entertaining. Another unique feature to this design was the paving material. The patios are laid with a 2’x4’ porcelain tile imported from Italy that had a 12-week lead time for delivery. The stairs had to be carefully designed and ordered because only the manufacturer could bullnose the edges of this material and maintain the proper color.
As a personal retreat or for entertaining, the outdoor areas of this Arizona home offer an inspired living space. Framed by the mountain views and lush desert landscape, the double negative edged pool and spa are the perfect spot to relax. Flower beds inset into the patio offer color and life to the space.
Archways open this outdoor dining space into a vibrant yard with glass retaining wall border. Marble tile flooring and a roof above create the perfect surroundings for enjoying a meal at the long dining table and wicker chairs.
Concrete stepping stones laid in a rock bed create a simple and textural walkway up the side of the home and yard. Mulched garden sections add natural decorations and levels of plant life beside the crisp, cut uniform yard. An outdoor living room is situated on the patio complete with stone fireplace and chimney.
Hints of blue are sprinkled throughout this outdoor area: as a tile backsplash for the pool, different patterned pillows, in ceramic form as a large planter. The color and varied textures are a welcome note of dimension in the outdoor space.
Multicolored mosaic tile and fountains turn this swimming pool into an outdoor retreat. The pool house uses similar exterior elements as the main house, tying the architecture of the structures together.
This eclectic kitchen boasts cabinetry in pure white and black. A black kitchen island is paired with vivid orange chairs complemented by unusual, glossy orange pendant lights. The large window over the sink provides a beautiful view of outdoor greenery, which is echoed by the forest green subway wall tiles in this thoroughly modern, and unforgettable, kitchen space.
