These outdoor kitchens show that there is no need to be cooped up inside when the weather is warm just because it is meal time.
I spend a great deal of time in the kitchen. Sadly my little kitchen is a narrow galley design with not much counter space.
So I find myself drooling over home improvement sites and other online sources, day dreaming about the perfect place to cook.
One of my items on my “dream list” is a fully equipped outdoor kitchen suitable for summer time entertaining.
My favorite Outdoor Kitchens – A Girl Can Dream Can’t She?
Here are some of my favorite outdoor kitchens that take in a lot of nature.
This wonderful outdoor kitchen features cinder block, flagstone and stacked stone.
More flagstone leads to the natural stone”deck”.
The stone makes this one for me! Shared from Houzz.
A pergola over an outdoor kitchen. What a great way to entertain on the Patio.
Not only is the kitchen amazing, but the pergola appeals to me too.
This lovely setting features colored concrete counter tops and a black glass tile back splash for a dramatic effect.
A pergola made of stained redwood enhances the top-of-the-line look. Fully equipped and perfect for entertaining.
So serene! A boulder water feature surrounds this Southwestern-style outdoor kitchen.
The large bar area and an alfresco oven are perfect for pizza nights or for any laid-back occasion. I love the way this one sets a mood.
The pool and the view say it all for this lovely patio setting with a long table for entertaining.
This rustic log cabin style seems more cozy but loses none of the features of the larger styles. This one would suit smaller patio spaces.

The example you gave of a rustic log cabin outdoor kitchen and how cozy and comfy it looks really caught my eye. I've always wanted a small nook where I can have barbecue cookouts and family outdoor dinners, and I wanted to know the best way to keep it consistent with my natural-looking house. With how snug and cozy this example looks like, I'm sure that my family will love to tuck in and have a nice meal outside, so I'll talk to a home construction contractor and see if they can help me get something like this.

Wow, I'm also mesmerized by the outdoor kitchen with a cinder block, stacked stone, and flagstone. It truly has a very natural appeal. I'm also planning to make some home improvements on our house. I like to build an extension sunroom and an outdoor kitchen. The brick with grasses idea is my pick. My family also loves barbecuing, so I'm gonna have to buy an outdoor barbeque kitchen equipment to match it.

Creating a unique outdoor kitchen is such a great addition to any home and will increase your value immensely. I am a big fan of creating a pergola to provide some shade without blocking out the sun. They are beautiful and fairly inexpensive to build.

Hi Chad. We hope to enlarge our deck this year and add a pergola. Can't wait to get a bit of shade on it. Carol
