If you can’t take the heat, then move the kitchen outside! There are so many things I love about this outdoor kitchen. It’s simple, yet modernly decorative with its concrete appearance and plant decor. I love the addition to the deer antlers hanging at the top of the kitchen too, it adds a bit of a rustic touch to a pretty modern looking kitchen. My favorite part has to deep the deep farmhouse style kitchen sink! I haven’t seen too many outdoor kitchens with a feature like that and I’m really digging it. This is really cool!

Are you up for the challenge of cooking in an outdoor kitchen? Aside from the sleek and modern aesthetics of a challenger designed kitchen, there is much more to these. According to the website they feature weatherproof cabinets, and they are designed and installed to customize the space in the outdoor area. I love the wooden flooring paired with the white cabinets, that style is new and in and I’m all about it! The ceiling fan is a nice addition to the space as well. I’m definitely up for this challenge!

Sticks and stones will do more than just break your bones, it’ll be the perfect exterior to an outdoor kitchen! What do you think about this wooden and stone outdoor kitchen? It is SO unique in its stature and aesthetics, and the grill as the centerpiece. I love how the trellis hangs over the grill, and how the stone surrounds each side. Plus, since this isn’t a full kitchen, this design could be placed anywhere, even on a small deck. This “ROCKS”!

Now THIS is the type of outdoor kitchen I would need as a Michigander. This comes with plumbing AND electric, so it could be used for more than just the 6 months (if we’re lucky) out of the year that it’s warm. It has a rustic brick vibe, and I love how the grill is built into the foundation of the kitchen itself. What do you think about the exposed wood ceiling? I love that this could be utilized all year long, and you could even add a flat screen TV if you so choose to. Not living in All year round warmness? No problem!

I mean seriously, how cool is this urban style outdoor kitchen? This is the perfect “backyard barbeque” set up, only a way cooler, way more decorative one. I love the style of the furniture that they use, it has a bamboo-like texture and the color is a smoky grey that matches the grill perfectly

Ahhh the great outdoors… What could be better than incorporating your very own outdoor kitchen to a view like this? I love cedar, it’s one of my absolute favorite styles of foundation and/or furniture. And this is an awesome setup! She uses cedar wood for her cabinets and as the foundation for the kitchen and builds the grill right into it. There is also a privacy screen incorporated that adds a calming vibe to the area overall. Chop it like it’s hot!

A display of modern simplicity at it’s finest with this outdoor kitchen idea! This kitchen is set up so pristinely that at first, I couldn’t even tell it was outside. The deck looks super easy to clean, the cabinets are modernly white, there is a little bar with stools incorporated, and the grill is built right into the foundation. How about the cute window in the bar area? I’d imagine this would be an awesome place to hang out if you have guests over in the summer and a place for the family to relax and unwind without feeling 100% outside. I could live outside in this kitchen!

“You’re hungry? Hi hungry I’m Dad.” Did anyone else’s dad do this to them all the time growing up? 5 year old little me would get so frustrated thinking my dad actually thought my name was hungry… Which would then make me hangry. But he thought it was hilarious of course This is the ultimate dad grilling station, I’m not gonna lie. It’s bold, beautiful, manly looking with a modern touch, and has plenty of space for dads to do what dads do best, grill! This outdoor kitchen is focused on the grill, but still has touches of decoration here and there. Plus the wood flooring pairs well with the metal grill. Show this to your dad or husband, they will want the same set up immediately

“Every luxury must be paid for, and everything is a luxury, starting with being in this world” – Cesare Pavese
This may be hands down the most luxurious outdoor kitchen I have seen to date. Not only does this outdoor kitchen features a heated pool, but fully intact appliances, an outdoor shower, a fresco machine, a grill, and gorgeous relaxation space. The cabinets are a gorgeous light brown, with matching flooring, and a stunningly huge grill to match the luxury of the rest of the space. This is seriously out of a dream you guys, I am OBSESSED! I sure would be luxuriously feeling lucky to be alive if I had this outdoor kitchen!
Pizza Oven Backyard Kitchen

All of the foliage and plants in this gorgeously modern outdoor kitchen will definitely have you feeling the outdoor vibe more than ever! How stunning is the plant decor featured here? The kitchen is surrounded by bright green plants, textural foliage, and an outdoorsy nature like calming vibe that I am obsessed with. And the mix of charcoal brown and grey cabinetry? Modern with a charming and rustic expensive feel. I love how unique this is, and so minimalist like while still having that decor factor. But since I’m Italian… my favorite part has to be the built-in pizza oven!

The grill. The grill, the grill is on FIRE! Wow, the foundation of this outdoor kitchen/grilling station is absolutely stunning! I’ in love with the patterned flooring, space to grill ratio, and the way the grill itself is built into the stone foundation. This is the perfect set up for family get-togethers, parties, and days spent outside in the summer sun. It’s modernly rustic, which is my favorite style, yet simple enough for the king of the grill him or herself to get to work without any distractions. Set up for grilling to perfection!

You can make an outdoor kitchen that much more stunning by just adding one simple and relatively inexpensive thing. Can you guess what it might be? Once you take a look at this outdoor kitchen idea you will know RIGHT AWAY what it is
This backsplash is everything! The geometric uneven patterns of the grey and white colors give such a unique and lively look to an otherwise simple yet effective kitchen. I love the dark circular decorations too. More than just hot dogs are being made here, but art. After seeing this I will definitely be adding a backsplash to my outdoor kitchen, how could you not?

Raising the roof with this outdoor kitchen idea! I think adding a small roof to an outdoor kitchen would only ever make it better and more effective, and there are a lot of reasons to do it. Weather isn’t perfect, and I know my husband often wants to grill… rain or shine. This also makes it possible to keep furniture safe and dry, and adds extra decor. I love this simple metal roof, and how it pairs with the white, grey, and brown rocked appliances. Brown and white are in, and I love the “non-matchy, matchy’ look (if that makes sense lol)

Somewhereeeeee over the rainbow… I love the grill set up in this outdoor kitchen! The grill itself is the centerpiece to the kitchen and to the right of it is a sink, and across from it, there is more counter space making it an effective yet modern looking outdoor kitchen. My favorite part about this grill is the fact that it kind of has its own backsplash to it. There’s a gently curved stone surrounding it that gives it a decor factor that I can’t get enough of! It’s simple yet attractive in it’s aesthetic, perfect for your very own grill master. Taste the charred rainbow this summer!

“Great views are not just meant to be captured, they are meant to be experienced” – Anonymous
The view looks great from this outdoor kitchen, don’t you think? I love the idea of utilizing a higher up back deck as a kitchen, and they created this design perfectly. There is a nice grill located center to this kitchen, gorgeous cabinets with plenty of stocking room, counter space, and stunning wood decking that make up this area, all within a perfect view of the landscape and their yard. I love the grey stone and dark brown chocolate wood pairing, it’s very elegant yet

Rustic farmhouse vibes to the max with this outdoor kitchen idea! This kitchen entails a nice big fridge, a wooden “picnic table looking” bar with square grey stained bar stools, a bunch of wooden counter space… Plus, the old appliances and pots and pans hanging on the wall for added decor. The kitchen itself is surrounded with wood, which gives it that rustic farmhouse feel and charm that I love so much! It’s unique in its design yet sleek and protected from the weather under the roof, almost like an enclosed outdoor space. Cockadoodle YES to this kitchen inspiration!

This outdoor kitchen using marine grade plywood is absolutely stunning. I love the white foundation with the black countertops, and it pairs perfectly with the brick backsplash. It’s neat, it’s protected, and it’s sleek and stunning in it’s aesthetic. This kitchen is more than marine grade, it’s magazine grade

What’s your favorite thing to grill? In the summertime, my husband and I meal prep on the grill for all week long. My favorite is lean steak, grilled brussels, peppers, and chicken. My husband is more a brat/fatty steak kind of guy. I can’t figure out what I like more about this design, the outdoor kitchen or the patio itself! The tan stone colors paired with the light brown wood flooring is absolutely STUNNING, and the grill looks expensive in its built-in setup. This definitely has an expensive feel to it, while still giving off a homey charm. Whether it’s brats or brussels, this kitchen will do it for you!

You can stand under my umbrella ella ella AY AY AY! These big red umbrellas attached to the grill and counters in this outdoor kitchen add such an adorable feel to a stunning kitchen set up! I love the dark metal and stone counters in this flawless design. This is the perfect kitchen area for summertime, and the umbrellas keep the area and the food cool on a long and hot day. If you’re a fan of dark shadings of color and a modern look to your design, this will be the kitchen idea for you!

“The woods are never solitary–they are full of whispering, beckoning, friendly life. But the sea is a mighty soul, forever moaning of some great, unshareable sorrow, which shuts it up into itself for all eternity” – LM Montgomery
Wood on wood and wood, basically beauty on beauty on beauty in my opinion. This outdoor kitchen is big, wooden, and absolutely stunning! There is a ton of seating room with big open spacing, a nice grill, and some gorgeous lighter color stained wooden countertops. Plus, a fenced landscape to match in the background. It’s rustic while still having an expensive feel, and charming. “Wood” you look at the beauty in the design of this kitchen?

You can’t make everyone happy, you aren’t pizza. You also aren’t this stunning outdoor kitchen featuring an awesome giant brick pizza oven either. Wait until you see the beauty in this design, it will knock your pizza socks off… everyone has a pair of pizza socks, right? This modern, stunning, and aesthetically unique outdoor kitchen idea has an incredible countertop with plenty of storage space! But the best part is the brick pizza oven that will keep you from ever buying pizza again
I think if you’re going to go as far as having an outdoor kitchen as beautiful as this, you might as well install an oven. Why would you want to bake inside when you have THIS? I am obsessed!

This outdoor kitchen set up has that European charm to it, with its yellow colors, big pizza oven with curtains underneath, and greenery surrounding. It reminds me a lot of what you would see at a nice Italian restaurant, or in a fancy Spanish place. It’s elegant, it’s stunning, and it’s full of life and color. Amo questo!

Already have the pool in the backyard and now looking to complete the setup? This outdoor kitchen would be the perfect addition to finish off any backyard… pool or not! I love the seating area to the left of the grill with the trellis above. I’m sure that’s the place to be during those summer nights and afternoon cookouts. The simple design lends its self perfectly to this backyard! My favorite feature of this kitchen has to bee the tile pavers they used… They really finish off the entire look and I could totally see myself hanging out here!

If you’re an avid DIY’er and love saving money… then I’m sure this amazing black themed outdoor kitchen will give you some ideas! I love how they painted the storage space to the right of the grill black to match. It really ties everything together and it’s something I would have never thought of. I can totally see hanging some string lights around this setup and seating area to really make things pop at night. This DIY outdoor kitchen is the perfect solution when sticking within a small budget but still getting all the functionally you need to have fun this summer! Save money and transform your backyard with this one!

It’s perfectly built into this backyard and utilizes the area for maximum room to work. I love how much counter space this has… plus, if you were to add some barstools the to bottom right, you’d have all the room you need. Pack a punch with this small backyard kitchen!

This simple but elegant outdoor kitchen would be the perfect addition to your shared wall and would definitely give you an excuse to grill out more often! Plus, if you are particularly fond of your neighbors, the privacy fence on top the stone wall goes perfectly with the setup while making it feel completely like your own space. But let’s not skip over those cabinets. I’m loving the color… especially against the green of the fence!
