An outdoor kitchen area includes a grill, wood-fired oven and island for prep at this modern Dallas home. The kitchen is centrally located in the home's public entertaining area near the pool deck and open-air dining area.
The wooden deck and stairs were problematic for the homeowners in terms of maintenance and also entertaining. So, it was replaced by a new stained concrete deck featuring steel railing and supporting columns to coordinate with other site elements. Designer Heather Garrett and her team increased the deck's footprint by a few feet to allow for additional seating and a convenient grilling space right off of the main living area. The new structure was designed to keep rain out of the patio below, so Garrett and her team seized the opportunity to improve the ground-level patio space by adding motorized screens, five ceiling fans, wood storage for the fire pit and an outdoor television. The aging patio slab was replaced by a new contemporary paver system and its footprint was enlarged to create more area for lounging.
The columns and circular overhead element help define the space while preserving the panoramic views of Calgary. The seating design incorporates natural stone to match the structure of the fire pit and columns.
Stay cozy on a cool evening at this custom outdoor table and fire pit combination. Crafted from natural stone with wood and metal accents, the clever design features a long, raised table attached to an outdoor fireplace. Three brown cushioned chairs are positioned around the table.
With a desire to host year-round soirees, these homeowners traded in their old picnic tables to create a one-of-a-kind outdoor dining oasis. The space's true focal point is the wooden gazebo at the far end of the yard next to a fire pit surrounded by Adirondack chairs and a decorative stone wall. The grilling, cooking and dining area are all in one spot, making the grill-to-table transition an easy one.
A gray stone fire pit is centered on the stone patio next to an outdoor kitchen space. Wood adirondack chairs provide seating around the fire pit, and a pavilion covers the kitchen area for an ideal entertaining atmosphere.
