Outdoor living has been an increasing market for several years, but 2020 saw a dramatic rise as people were home more. Especially in the more scenic and moderate climate regions, homeowners have embraced the idea of outdoor rooms to extend their homes' living space. This home features a budget friendly custom grill island that takes advantage of the scenic overlook of the neighboring golf course. The stucco finish makes for a smooth transition from the home's trim so that it looks like the island was original. The soft tones of the island match the property and allow the focus to be drawn to the stunning desert landscape.
The grill island features a standard "L-shape" design attached to the home structure, making it easier to extend utilities. Ceramic tile is used to provide crisp countertops that are sleek, durable, and cost less than granite. A Summerset Grills TRL grill with a matching side burner provides everything needed to cook a meal while enjoying the gorgeous sunset. Matching stainless steel storage drawers and cabinet keep the island clean and orderly. For a finishing touch, the ceramic tile is used as trim around the island's bottom and top edges. Designed to seamlessly complement the home and take in the views, this outdoor kitchen checks all the boxes without hurting the pocketbook.
