Have you been dreaming of designing the perfect outdoor kitchen space? Do you have a picture sketched on a napkin but don’t know where to turn next? Maybe you think the idea of having an outdoor kitchen paradise sounds cool but have not even begun the visualization process. Here is one of our projects to inspire you to take your paper vision and make it a reality. Get ready for a little picture overload as this kitchen is just too amazing not to share every detail.
As you approach the home you can see a beautiful stack stone fireplace in the middle of an enclosed cedar structure that joins a brick home and a new mother-in-law suite. This creates a wonderful entertaining area where the family can gather around the fireplace or cook on their amazing outdoor kitchen. If you look through the enclosure on the right, you can see the hood that is above the two grills.
From the backyard you get a different view, looking out over the pool with the outdoor kitchen to your left and the fireplace in the middle.
With this client we went through a planning process that involved visits to their home, time in our store to select appliances and finishes, and then multiple 3D renderings until we arrived at their dream design. Many times we find when we meet with clients that they find it difficult to visualize their space and the final appearance of what we are discussing and proposing. Our drawings will help you get a more accurate picture of what your outdoor kitchen will look like when it moves from paper to reality.
This client LOVES to cook, as you can tell from the variety of cooking appliances that they chose to put in their kitchen. This personal detail and others were taken into consideration and resulted in a kitchen that became truly personalized to every one of their needs and desires for the space.
In the photo above there is a moveable reclaimed heart pine table/island that was designed to be counter height, giving you the ability to use it as an additional space for cutting and food prep or for serving… it also nicely fits the Yeti “Tank” below it that can be using for cold beverages or beer.
When the reclaimed heart pine table is removed you can see the Mempis Elite pellet grill and TEC Infrared G3000 gas grill. These grills are machines and you will be able to grill anything you want, across a number of differnt cooking styles and cuisines, on these exceptional appliances.
You also will notice the dual hoods that were placed in this kitchen. These hoods will help to evacuate smoke and cooking grease and will make it a more enjoyable atmosphere for both cook and those that are relaxing in this outdoor sanctuary.
A slate back splash was also chosen to add more natural stone detail to a very sturdy and functional space and it really compliments this space well and will last for years to come.
In addition to the grills, there is a Fire Magic power burner and a sink with an extended faucet to make the sink useful for anything from filing large pots to washing off large cuts of meat.
The granite counter tops compliment the space well and really let the EVO flat-top grill pop. The EVO is a wonderful addition to any outdoor kitchen space. In addition to being a conversation piece that invites people to participate and help in the cooking process, this is just a really fun way to cook anything from your breakfast of eggs and pancakes to veggies, stir fry or hamburgers for dinner. This grill is quite versatile and you are guaranteed to have lots of fun with it.
Stainless steel access doors beneath the appliances and sink provide lots of storage and access to the cavernous interior of the strucutre, as well as access to the undersides of grills, gas lines, and plumbing for maintenance purposes.
This client designed two seating areas in this space. One for eating and the other for relaxing and game watching. Can’t you imagine enjoying the game, a beer and staying cozy by this fire on a crisp fall day while you have a Boston Butt on your pellet grill?
This is a cook’s paradise and we can make this a reality for you too. Are ready to get started? We are!
