These Hot Outdoor Kitchens Turn Up The Heat in Landscape Design offering more flavor than ever!

Since the Stone Ages we’ve been cooking outside . . . and it hasn’t lost its appeal.

Outdoor entertainment has countless choices with plunge pools, custom spas, elaborate fire features and even drop down movie screens. But what brings atmosphere to the party? Food and liquid refreshment! We’re human, we eat! Isn’t that the point of moving your kitchen outdoors?

Outdoor Kitchens are here to stay and they’re sizzlin’ hot, hot, hot. So let’s get this party started – If you can’t take the heat . . . Get out of the Outdoor Kitchen!

You’d have to be completely ‘clue-less’ not to be awed by this spectacular Outdoor Kitchen with ample lighting, custom wood ceiling with heaters, kitchen appliances, and storage too! This roomy bar seats six. Can you say, ‘Bar Heaven’? Extra room for a large group and she’ a beaut!

The special lighting has fun color options. What cook can resist the tiered counters with loads of space? 2 Sinks, 2 TV’s, counters to die for . . . and this little lady of the kitchen has perfected making pizza in her wood-fired pizza oven.

The rounded stone windows add charm and ventilation. A firepit near the kitchen adds character and ambiance. See why we say this Outdoor Kitchen Turns Up The Heat? It’s Smokin’ Hot!

Tropical Outdoor Kitchen

Finding your lost shaker of salt should be a breeze in this tropical outdoor kitchen

The wall island hosts loads of counter and storage space. A retractable awning makes full-sun a choice for you and your guests.

This Outdoor Kitchen serves as a fully-equipped Outdoor Living Bar and serving station. Two built-in ice buckets in each island keeps soda,water, and other beverages ice-cold. Cerveza anyone? Not a beer drinker? A built in outdoor wine cooler is sure to please those who prefer a glass of vino. Swim-up bar stools are also located near the kitchen bar for pool service, chit-chat, and TV view.

At the other end of the kitchen, a grill island with plenty of gadget storage is located. No man is an island and we are not isolating the chef, however, it keeps smoke and sizzle away from guests, but not too far. Food is part of the fun! Night lighting adds even more sizzle to hot summer nights.
