Grand Gazebo

An arched gazebo with a Moroccan look contains an upscale outdoor kitchen with a romantic feel. The outdoor kitchen is located at the foot of a pool on a Miami Beach estate.

Rock Star

In this galley-style outdoor kitchen, guests can chat while the hosts prepare a meal with the built-in appliances underneath the shelter of a pergola. Use of stone and rock give the space, by Atlanta Deck and Fence, a rustic yet traditional look.

Everything Close at Hand

This expansive outdoor kitchen, by Atlanta Deck and Fence, has an abundance of appliances, such as a built-in refrigerator, warming drawers and storage. The stone islands are topped with durable countertops, and lighting is suspended from the pergola. 

Guest Stars

Guests have plenty of room to move around in this spacious outdoor kitchen and entertaining area. A double-deck countertop provides space for food, drinks and more. The patio and kitchen use Belgard products.

Tropical Touches

A waterfront estate in Naples, Fla., boasts an outdoor kitchen worthy of entertaining year-round. The kitchen has a bar and dining table, along with high-end countertops, stainless steel appliances including a wine cooler and oversized grill with a vent hood and a vaulted wood beamed ceiling. The home was listed by Premier Sotheby's International Realty in 2015 for $18.9 million.

Traditional Style

A beamed wood ceiling and columns define this spectacular outdoor kitchen, which has a built-in grill, refrigerator, sink, storage and warming drawers. Speakers and lighting line the inside of the vaulted roof. The kitchen uses Belgard materials.

Inside Out

Selecting a granite countertop and planning out an outdoor kitchen for a sink, bar seating, and built-in grill and refrigerator are among the ways homeowners are turning up the heat on outdoor entertaining. The possibilities for granite are endless, says Shayne Newman, president of Connecticut-based YardApes and a member of the National Association of Landscape Professionals. This outdoor kitchen uses Belgard products.

Compact Counts

This compact yet opulent outdoor kitchen holds an array of built-in stainless steel appliances, including storage and warming drawers, a refrigerator and a grill. The kitchen, which uses Belgard materials, shows how some homeowners are investing in outdoor entertaining.

Architectural Arches

A series of round arches sets off an outdoor kitchen with built-in appliances and ceiling fans, created by Ideal Lawn & Landscape in Shawnee, Kansas. The kitchen opens to an extensive patio space with rocks, Belgard products and cushioned patio seating.

Entertainment Haven

Licensed contractor Chip Wade, host of HGTV's "Elbow Room," added a garage door that transitions as the clear ceiling of the wood trellis on the Atlanta patio. With the addition of a garage door for easy indoor/outdoor access, a custom concrete table, an outdoor seating area and new appliances, the kitchen area is perfect for entertaining large groups.

Old-World Style

Dine al fresco underneath an awning, such as this one made with Sunbrella fabric for a Texas home. The built-in grill and storage back up to a sandstone wall in the intimate courtyard space. 

Rustic Lines

Outdoor kitchens are moving beyond basic grills with built-in appliances, refrigerators, garbage cans, storage cabinets and special features such as pizza ovens and side burners. This outdoor kitchen with bar seating is created by YardApes.

Pizza Al Fresco

Want to take your outdoor kitchen beyond the basics? Pizza ovens are among the items that companies such as YardApes, based in Connecticut, are helping homeowners incorporate as they splurge on outdoor spaces.

Moroccan Features

Tables seat up to 10 people in this outdoor kitchen housed in a Moroccan-style gazebo on a Miami Beach estate. Fans hanging from the wood paneled ceiling bring bay breezes into the outdoor kitchen, which has tile countertops, built-in stainless steel appliances and architectural elements such as gorgeous arches.
