Outdoor Kitchens to Envy

Personalized for your lifestyle.
Outdoor kitchens to envy! Especially in Minnesota. Clients often ask us for creative solutions in designing outdoor kitchens to not only extend their grilling season well beyond the summer months, but also to create a unique space customized to their lifestyle. Depending on their grilling passion, entertaining preferences and seasonal use, we’ve created a variety of solutions from a simple grill patio to a fully-functioning outdoor kitchen. Here are a few of our favorites to lend some inspiration for creating your own outdoor entertaining oasis.
Screened in Success!
A screened porch is a great extension of the home to use for your outdoor kitchen. Complete with living room patio furniture and dining table, you’ll have the perfect place to gather during the summer months. Screens protect you and your guests from pesky mosquitoes yet allow cool lake breezes to waft through the space helping you beat the summer heat. Add a fireplace and space heaters, and you can extend you outdoor entertaining well into fall and early spring.
Get artistically creative with your appliances! In the corner of this modern porch is a pizza oven by Fontana Forni, with space below for wood storage. The unique shape adds interest to the space while the stainless finish fits well with the traditional grill and hood nearby. If you are interested in learning more about this custom install, come check out this outdoor kitchen, and the rest of this stunning home, during the Artisan Home Tour this October!
Shelter the Sun
Want to add some architectural interest to your outdoor kitchen and grilling area, a pergola is the perfect solution to provide relief from the sun while creating a space with tons of charm and character. This free-standing island kitchen is complete with sink, beverage fridge, and grilling station. Incorporate a sit-up counter with bar stools and you have the perfect spot for entertaining guests while tending the grill.
Whether your grilling needs are simple or elaborate, intimate or large-scale, there is a design solution for your outdoor kitchen that best fits your lifestyle. Find this and other inspiration on our website to create that perfect space that’s uniquely yours.
