You don’t need a lot of room to get a well equipped outdoor kitchen space incorporated into your Phoenix patio design. Design for today’s smaller backyards may be a challenge, but great things are possible in a very compact footprint.
This conveniently located u-shape outdoor kitchen has beauty that is far more than skin deep. You could cook up a storm with this layout and entertain guests or visit with family while you’re at it. The footprint here is roughly 6′ x 8′ – not much bigger than a walk-in closet. Still there is ample room on the counter for cooking, prep work and even some light serving area just behind the bar for those impromptu gatherings and easy access to snacks. The bar top can also be put to service in providing more serving space if need be.
It’s never a good idea to be far from the grill when you’ve got something on the flames. Having the bar just a few steps away allows the chef to relax while keeping a watchful on on what’s going on with the food. Efficiency is everywhere in this outdoor kitchen with the cooktop in easy reach just around the corner from the built in gas grill’s location. The sink and outdoor refrigerator are just to the right of the cooktop, but there is open counter space between giving ample room for creating a meal, and everything needed at your fingertips. Under counter storage space sits behind the bar to keep utensils and patio glassware or dishes available at all times.
Adding a bar area to any outdoor cooking space is a hot ticket with our clients and it’s a no-brainer with an outdoor kitchen. This one is small, but gives plenty of room for two roomy bar stools and comfortable conversation space. With the porch roof in close proximity, everyone can stay out of the sun on hot day’s too, yet be right there close to the cooking action.
This Phoenix patio design is installed with gorgeous and colorful travertine pavers. The outdoor kitchen’s cabinets are block and stucco construction faced with natural stone to add great accent and texture on the bar side. The counters and bar top are crafted from natural stone for long lasting beauty.
