Grilling season is upon us! As Memorial Day weekend draws near, we celebrate those who served our country. The weekend also rings in the start of summer and the opportunity to grill and entertain outdoors. So, grilling lovers – these outdoor kitchen setups are for you!
Modern, functional patio design
An open design allows the host to be a part of the party! Whether your guests are sitting outside under the covered patio, or inside in the living room, this space has massive doors and windows so you won’t miss a beat.
The patio’s stark black ceiling, adorned with sleek lines, provides a dramatic contrast from the light colored walls and flooring. Black trim on the windows and doors tie the elements together to give the space a contemporary, cohesive look.
And the best part? A large cutout allows guests to look out into the backyard. Nothing says serenity quite like watching the sun set from the comfort of your patio.
Grill area with bar seating
Cook up an amazing dinner and slide the plates down the bar! The gorgeous, granite bar provides so much more than functionality – pull up a seat here, and the view will make you feel like you’re at a resort.
Stone surrounding the grill coupled with wooden ceiling panels gives this space an earthy, natural vibe. Its design gives you the best of both worlds – its open concept allows for fresh air and jaw dropping views, but the entire patio is covered, so you and your family can enjoy all the perks of the outdoors, no matter the weather.
A grill setup … but make it poolside
Is there anything better than being able to fire up the grill right by the pool? Throw a few hot dogs on and then dip your feet in, you deserve it! Or simply sit tight and enjoy the view; the grill is situated so it overlooks the backyard.
Though not poolside, this setup has a little bit of everything; sleek countertops, sophisticated concrete work and an elegant water feature. The covered patio space is large enough to seat the whole family, and the relaxing sound of the fountain provides the ultimate backdrop for any occasion.
