Are you ready to have an outdoor kitchen that sizzles? Outdoor kitchens are the biggest trend in outdoor spaces right now. Homeowners are adding kitchens to their backyards to experience the benefits of preparing and enjoying food with friends and family in the beautiful surrounding provided by Mother Nature herself.
When you’re ready to design your own outdoor kitchen, there are many styles and themes to choose from.
Do you enjoy spending time in your outdoor space all year around? A stylized winter-themed kitchen could suit your lifestyle perfectly. This kitchen could include stainless steel appliances, a large, decadent outdoor fireplace and slate surfaces. You could complete the space with a cozy hot tub for some relaxation after your meals.
Are the hills of Tuscany and the flavours of the Italian countryside calling your name? Your outdoor kitchen design could include long, family-style seating, rustic European pottery and décor, and a wood-fired pizza oven. Now that’s Amore!
Do you enjoy the organic lifestyle? Your outdoor kitchen could reflect this natural way of living and eating. Of course you can “go green” both literally and figuratively.
Cool colours will set the backdrop for an elegant, natural setting. Use eco-friendly appliances and materials for your patio furniture. Try to incorporate plants and nature wherever possible. Ananda’s custom cedar deck stain that uses ingredients straight from the rain forest could be the perfect foundation for your green outdoor kitchen.
A traditional coal oven and large grill area will transport your backyard right to the dessert. Complete the look with large rocks, southwestern plants and warm-coloured patio furniture.
You have a backyard that reminds you of your favourite exotic beach vacation. Go for a sophisticated tropical paradise with high-quality tiki umbrellas and custom water features to set tone both visually and with the soothing sounds.
If you enjoy spending your afternoons on a swanky restaurant patio, you can recreate the experience in your own backyard. A dark colour granite or marble counter top and matching bar area will set the mood, along with stylish outdoor furniture grouped into conversation areas.
We hope these outdoor kitchen styles inspire you to start dreaming up the possibilities for your own Calgary backyard kitchen!
