Southern California is known for mild weather and beautiful sunsets, and these homeowners have extended the living space of their home into their backyard with a relaxing outdoor kitchen. With a modest-sized footprint, the stone patio has been remodeled to accommodate a stunning grill island and an eating area, allowing for extended stays outside without having to return inside. The use of white textures and lighter shades in smaller spaces helps to brighten the atmosphere, make it seem bigger, and allow vegetation to add pops of color and life. The stone flooring of the patio adds sophistication and detail, bringing a sense of warmth and curiosity to this open-air hangout.
The outdoor kitchen has all the essentials for entertaining and relaxing throughout a perfect California day. Using white faux stone to surface the "L"-shaped island makes the kitchen cheery and attractive while causing the shiny stainless steel appliances to stand out. A built-in Summerset Grill provides more than enough cooking power to handle any event or party, while a built-in sink delivers the utility to keep the kitchen clean. Matching cold and dry storage round out the convenience of the outdoor kitchen so the host and cook can stay outside with guests. Topped with gorgeous granite countertops, the island provides plenty of stylish counter space for serving and prepping. Outdoor living is desired across the country, and this patio shows how much can be achieved and enjoyed regardless of the size of the backyard.
