Keep it in Line (above)
A long, narrow lot is the perfect place for a linear outdoor kitchen. Anchored by a fireplace and mounted outdoor TV, the resident chef never has his or her back turned to guests. The post-and-beam covering makes the space even more warm and inviting.

Who wouldn’t want to be invited to a BBQ at this house? A waterfall provides the soundtrack for the covered cooking/ dining zone, which offers protection from the summer sun, while the fire pit keeps the fun going well into the off-season. Joined by a relaxing hot tub, this outdoor living space is certainly the place to be.
Stone in Love (below)
Sometimes, the basics will do just fine, and this outdoor kitchenette is a prime example that you don’t have to be elaborate to enjoy cooking outdoors. Located on the lower-level patio, the stone foundation, flooring and island surround are fire-safe and easy to clean.
Let the Good Times Roll (bottom)
This space is tricked out for the party of all parties! Joining the gas grill in the array of cooking options is a kamadostyle cooker and a wood-fired pizza oven. Tons of seating suits a crowd, and the timber-framed pavilion allows the festivities to go on, rain or shine.
Rustic Fare (above)
Rustic posts frame the lush woodsy view from this outdoor culinary area. The centerpiece is the grill, of course, but it’s accompanied by a gas cooktop, and a warming drawer, plus a minifridge and a wine cooler.
Fireside Delight (right)
This outdoor space is much more than a kitchen — it’s an outdoor great room in a compact space. A stone fireplace flanked by comfy seating is strategically placed near the cooking area, which also features a raised breakfast bar.
