Outdoor living is not reserved only for the rich or for those with large spaces, but creating a place to relax is accessible to anyone with planning and help. This outdoor getaway features a sleek white kitchen, separate eating area, charming sitting area under a large pergola, all on a herringbone deck. Efficiently master-crafted by Designing With Elements in Huntington Station, New York, this design makes the most of the modest backyard by creating a distinct extension of desirable living space and still keeping a good amount of grass and landscaped area.
The bright white cabinetry of the outdoor kitchen creates a lovely and sleek base for the gorgeous wraparound granite countertops, and housing for the stainless steel built-in Summerset Grill, sink, and refrigerator. With ample working space, handy built-in power outlets, and bar seating for three this kitchen makes cooking outside a breeze. The herringbone deck is a warm and eye-catching showpiece that ties all three areas together but also provides a beautiful counterpoint to the horizontal white lines of the siding and pergola. The white trim of the deck provides distinction and boundary, maintaining the openness and causing the vibrant landscape to pop like colors on an artist’s canvas.
With intuitive planning and exquisite use of color, textures, and space, this backyard has been fashioned into a stunning outdoor annex of the house in form and appearance.
