Amazing Outdoor Kitchen Areas To Swoon Over

It may be fall, but that won't stop me from swooning over these gorgeous outdoor kitchens featured via House Beautiful. 

 Now is the perfect time to start planning your backyard design for next year! 

There's an organic feeling to the outdoor kitchen designed by Mick De Giulio, thanks to a variety of colors, shapes, and textures of stone — from Medina Slab pavers to the island built of Weston Stone, all from Belgard Hardscapes.

In designer Bonnie Edelman's Connecticut house, the pool kitchen's stained oak ceiling pours warmth over cool stainless-steel cabinets. A drop-down metal gate protects appliances from rain.

The U-shaped layout of a Nantucket kitchen is zoned from hot to cold, moving from the grill on the left to two refrigerator drawers and an ice maker on the right. "Usually an outdoor kitchen is more of an adjunct, but this is complete," designer Kris Horiuchi says. "The client wanted the whole shebang — grill, cooktops, refrigerator, sink, pizza oven."

In Malcolm James Kutner's Key West house, the outdoor kitchen cabinets are made from old cypress shutters supplied by restorer Liz Devries. "With outdoor living in general, it's about being friendly with nature and inviting it inside instead of trying to draw that heavy line in the sand that says, 'This is the outside and this is the inside,'" he says. "Key West is all about living harmoniously with nature."

If you can't splurge on a second kitchen, this extra-wide window might do the trick. Designer Erin Martin extended the marble counter from a beach house kitchen outside to make passing food easier. We also love the Tolix Marais stools from Design Within Reach.
