Go rustic

Create the rustic kitchen of your dreams by emphasizing the use of brick and wood cabinets. Cover the area for shade, add the typical kitchen appliances such as a range, dishwasher, mini-fridge and sink, and don’t forget the lighting. Custom cabinets add to the appeal and functionality, allowing for storage and equipment right at your fingertips.

Go poolside

You can bet the pool party will always be at your house with these ideas. A sunken outdoor kitchen complete with grill, sink, fridge, and storage is made memorable by including a swim up bar. This is where you serve your guests delicious BBQ food and cold beverages while they say cool in the pool.

Make your swim-up bar functional by adding underwater stools and a covered bar area along with plenty of counter space for buffet-style entertaining.

Go homey

Bring the inside out with glass doors that span the entire wall…opening up the space between the inside and out in a seamless manner. Add an outdoor kitchen island, a fireplace, and comfortable furniture ideal for relaxing. A covered area with ceiling fan, outdoor rug, and a TV complete this true outdoor living space.
