Designing outdoor space into useable space for the entire family to enjoy is a trend that we are seeing especially as we are leaning towards more casual living. An outdoor kitchen can be small and simple or as elaborate as your budget will allow. The key elements we are seeing these days are a grill, fridge, stone baked pizza ovens, food prep area, sink and sound system and television. The gang can gather around a built in bar or outdoor sofas and tables and chairs. If you live in a climate that doesn’t have severe winters you will have more options on your design. Look through of these photo’s and pick your fav. I just finished a backyard and we also added a fireplace and it has become the family room for 6 months of the year.
Most of these pictures are quite elaborate and everyone doesn’t have the space of money to go all out but with some great design work we all can enjoy a little luxury out back.
