Ready for a Crowd

Gather your friends around while you grill their burgers. The built-in peninsula is surrounded by comfy barstools with a woven black seat and copper base, giving guests the perfect place to perch and keep you company. The stainless-steel grill creates a chic juxtaposition against its wooden base.


Grilling on the Surf

This beach cottage home brings its motto to the outdoor kitchen area with a custom tile backsplash. The simple white cabinetry resembles the board-and-batten exterior of the house, while a clean white countertop stretches across the grilling station and the bar.

Making It Convenient

Stacked stone walls encompass this outdoor area, defining different living spaces for dining, relaxing and cooking. Next to the gas grill is a small fridge for storing food you're preparing to grill or to keep side dishes cold until you're ready to serve.

Ideal in Thirds

No settling for just one grill, this station is designed to house a trio: a smoker, a gas grill and charcoal grill. The wood-and-tile surround is painted a soft blue and provides counterspace to set pans or plates of food as you prep.

Outdoor Luxury

Grill whether it's raining or shining in this top-of-the-line outdoor kitchen. Protected by a portico, the main gas grill has additional built-in side burners for maximum cooking abilities. A stainless-steel range hood vents the smoke and heat outside the covered space, which embraces an Old-World aesthetic with dark stained wood ceiling and travertine tile backsplash.

Casual Hosting

Build a dining area around your grill so you can be a part of the gathering the entire time. Industrial-style barstools easily tucked under the peninsula when not in use, and a pergola provides shade from the sun.

Bright + Contemporary

A crisp white station is built into the far wall of this welcoming outdoor space to house the stainless-steel grill. A long gray countertop provides plenty of prep area and then can act as a buffet when entertaining. Horizontal-slatted fencing adds warmth to the cool, contemporary space.

Urban Living

A getaway in the bustling city of New York, this kitchen has all the essentials for hosting an outdoor party. The long cabinetry houses storage, a refrigerator, sink and grill. Built-in lighting keeps the soiree and grilling happening after the sun sets.

Outdoor Cooking Upgraded

Natural stacked stone is clad in a smooth stone countertop for a structure that fits all your outdoor entertaining needs. A bar-height counter with stools curves around to the cooking area, which features not only the quintessential grill, but also an impressive wood-burning pizza oven. The sink area even has a dishwasher to allow for easy clean up.

Grilling on Top of the World

The barriers surrounding this rooftop kitchen are topped with glass to give an unobstructed view of the Chicago skyline. With ample countertops for prep and two grills, the area is available to use for all the high-rise building's residents.

Perfect for Game Day

Designed for family gatherings and tailgate parties, the covered stone patio has a dining table, bar area, kitchen and living space. The sunken part of the patio steps down to a fully outfitted kitchen, complete with grill, prep sink, range, pizza oven and even a beer tap. A TV is installed high on the wall above the kitchen so everyone can watch the game.

Warm + Family-Friendly

Natural wood and gray stone combine for a rustic-meets-organic outdoor kitchen and dining space. Next to the grill, a set of burners is available for additional cooking or boiling water. A built-in bench surrounds the table for cozy al fresco dining.

For the Gourmet Griller

No need to cook inside when you have everything you need outside; plus, a beautiful day to enjoy. The grill station has a gas grill with rotisserie, smoker, side burner, pizza oven and warming drawer. An oversized island centers the space, providing both a sink and prep area, as well as seating for guests to watch the flat-screen TV.

Cooking for a Crowd

No matter what size crowd you're having, this combo of double grills, side burners and a warming drawer ensures everyone will eat at the same time. With the bar next to the cooking area, your guests can eat their steak right off the grill — literally.

Lovely in Neutrals

A pergola adds shade and definition to this outdoor kitchen, where earthy stones blend seamlessly with the natural surroundings. Not only does the grill station feature multiple cooking areas, but it also has a plethora of storage options built in.

All About the Location

For those who grill as a relaxing task at the end of the day or on the weekend, this setting is ideal. Surrounded by stunning landscaping, this stacked-stone grill station has a beautiful view of the hillside flower beds, intricate stone work and cascading waterfall.

Entertain With Ease

The brick grill station features two levels of countertops to ensure you have plenty of prep and serving space. At the end of the grill station is a built-in circular dining spot with bar-height stools. Simple outdoor lanterns illuminate the space so you can cook into the evening.

Keeping It Minimal

Even in a small backyard, you can create a grill station that's functional and stylish. In this tiny space, a simple cabinet is clad in a sleek concrete countertop and houses a green egg.

Sleek + Contemporary

Chic in black and stainless steel, this grill station is a modern contrast against the natural surroundings and houses a center grill and two side burners. The elephant statues are a subtle nod to the Balinese style found throughout the rest of this luxurious outdoor living space.

State of the Art

Slightly above the yard, a polished concrete platform is the setting for this contemporary grill station. The stone façade adds eye-catching texture to the stainless-steel appliances and sleek concrete waterfall countertop.
