  1. BE PARTICULAR ABOUT POSITIONING YOUR OUTDOOR KITCHEN SPACE. A correctly positioned outdoor kitchen becomes the centralized hub for outdoor leisure activities and still remains conveniently useful nearby the indoor kitchen.

2. A WELL EQUIPPED AND ORGANIZED OUTDOOR KITCHEN KEEPS THE PARTY OUTSIDE. With everything at hand in the outdoor kitchen, friends and guests have no reason to go in and out of the personal space of the owner's indoor kitchen.

3. A COVERED OUTDOOR KITCHEN OFFERS SO MUCH MORE THAN REALIZED. A covered outdoor kitchen extends the season ten fold. Shade is a must. The ability to mount overhead heat, fans and lights in the ceiling is essential in hosting the Outdoor Kitchen space for the many family celebrations throughout the year both day and night.

The secret success to a really outstanding outdoor living space is that it elevates the quality of life for all family members. A rewarding lifestyle shared outdoors with friends and family circumventing around the mainstay of the outdoor kitchen. A fabulous design incorporates each and every family member's lifestyle indoors and portrays part of that comfort level outdoors. Designing and building a fully equipped Outdoor kitchen for both culinary and recreation allowing guests to mingle freely and self indulge in the surroundings. A grande outdoor kitchen also invites guests to help participate in food preparation and serving.

A nice sit up bar counter keeps friends and guests engaged in the entire process. Food, conversation and fun is now in the mix to make OUTDOOR FOOD FABULOUS.

4. YOU CAN NEVER HAVE ENOUGH OUTDOOR COUNTER SPACE. Outdoor counter space welcomes guests to place their belongings, encourages people to sit and also supports a great buffet presentation as food becomes ready for guests.

5. OFFER MUCH MORE THAN GRILLING. A grande fireplace with an OUTDOOR WOOD FIRED PIZZA OVEN equates to pizza by the pool. What a way to enjoy the afternoon.

6. CAREFULLY CRAFTED OUTDOOR FURNITURE IN VIBRANT COLORS PERSONALIZE THE SPACE. The red striped pillow tufts add comfort and visual presence to the outdoor living space. Note the Solid red umbrellas in the background near the pool splash deck.

It seems the larger the Outdoor Fireplace is, the more dramatic the outdoor living space becomes.

7. DESIGN YOUR OUTDOOR LIVING SPACE TO ACCOMMODATE THE ELEVATION. This free form gunite pool with raised beam upholding the elevated splash deck makes for a great escape. The pool form is literally dug into the slope. A more expensive approach with rewarding benefits worth the effort. The sound of the waterfall coming over the splash deck into the main pool tells it all.

8. PROFESSIONAL OUTDOOR LIGHTING ADDS BEAUTY, SAFETY, USEFULNESS AND EMOTION. A close look at the sconces direct the light upward and downward without seeing the source. The hidden bulb set produces no glare making it easy to look inward into the Outdoor Kitchen from anywhere in the backyard. Large mirrors mounted on the back wall magnify the illuminance and visually electrifies the space. The lights hidden up in the overhead ceiling shining down onto the outdoor kitchen can be controlled and dimmable with your hand held.
