“If you have the means to cover your outdoor Kitchen, then you have the means to do much more within that same space” says Outdoor Living Fabulous designer Michael Gotowala founder of THE OUTDOOR KITCHEN DESIGN STORE Connecticut.             Today’s outdoor patio has unfolded and presented some fabulous outdoor settings for a rewarding lifestyle with friends and family. Trending in today’s outdoor living is a plethora of different outdoor heat sources for culinary, conversation and food exploration. How many times has your family been able to free up time and resources to go for an outing of Hibachi? Im guessing not as many as could have been if you have had your own stand alone Outdoor EVO grill in your outdoor kitchen. Not only is the EVO grill the perfect Hibachi, vegetable skewer, sandwich and breakfast cooker available it is the perfect outdoor attraction for outdoor dining fabulously. These types of grills were really only seen at corporate level or resort type locations until recently. We design fabulous outdoor kitchens and really consider it a must to include the EVO for any outdoor kitchen intent right from the onset of breakfast, lunch, appetizers, stir fry and hibachi. It does not replace the flame throwing grill. It complements the grill and expands the culinary dining experience outdoors. Hand in hand, The grill and the EVO along side one another are simply the best in Outdoor dining excellence. The space needed to expand your lifestyle of endless hours spent outdoors dining and entertaining isn’t physically much larger than the space you probably all ready have within your existing patio.

Outdoor Kitchens bring loved ones together for food, fun and bonding time together while spending endless hours outdoors.                                                                                      The area simply needs to be professionally redesigned. Not feeling fabulous about your outdoor living space? It is most likely because it wasn’t designed for Outdoor cooking, outdoor dining and entertaining for the entire family & their friends to be gathered upon one another for an entire duration. I can begin to tell you in our latest built outdoor Outdoor living fabulous spaces, words like “I have never spent so much time outdoors the whole time I have lived here until now” are very common.

“If designed correctly, the outdoor covered kitchen should be a great outdoor destination for friends & family at all times of the day and night.” says Michael Gotowala founder of THE OUTDOOR KITCHEN DESIGN STORE. Convenience, organization and the “wow” factor are some desirable variables we are hearing more of and implementing in our latest run of outdoor kitchen fabulous builds.

20151125_151138.jpg

Are you hungry for pizza or a lifestyle you can share with friends and family? The difference between outdoor living and living outdoors fabulously is by design. An outdoor fabulous kitchen starts with a fabulous design and surrounds oneself with fabulous things such as this Outdoor Kitchen equipped with a WoodStone Pizza Oven. Life beyond the grill delves into a wish list not turned realistic such as pizza ovens. Outdoor pizza ovens are now available as table top appliances, wood fired domes, wood fired pizza oven & fireplace combinations and newly introduced into the luxury Home market are intricate gas fired, wood fired or combination fired ovens you would see at your favorite pizza restaurant.

The ovens are easily configured into the outdoor kitchen space to add yet another variable for outdoor dining excellence. Family members now can have their own personal size pizza tailored to all the fixings they love or always wanted to try themselves and share with family and friends.

20151230_142708.jpg

Another culinary addition to the outdoor world are Power burners with higher BTU’s. These mighty cookers have higher than most side burner cooking power enabling the handling of boiling larger pots of Lobsters, sauces etc.

20151125_152438.jpg

Tasty side dishes are now brought onto the outdoor specials menu. A full breakfast menu can be coordinated poolside or buffet style with the right layout and cabinetry considerations.

So along wide the grill comes a very intricate outdoor living experience that looks, feels, tastes and entertains fabulously.

20151203_092304.jpg

A covered outdoor Kitchen enables much more than grilling. The roof of the covered Outdoor Kitchen is equipped with Lighting, heat and fans.                                                What about entertaining and conversing during food preparation? This certainly is one of the very missed upon components of outdoor kitchen design simply diminishing family time bonding. NO longer is the grill turned and faced towards a wall. The interaction of time spent outdoors starts with food preparation as friends and family help each other and while being outdoors, trying each others recipes and openly conversing about each others families, days spent on vacations and upcoming days ahead. All these rewarding hours spent outdoors with one another uplifts into a very rewarding lifestyle. All circumvented around food, conversation and fun. What anchors this emotion? A fabulous outdoor kitchen design.

20151222_094354.jpg

A design which surrounds one self with fabulous things to prepare food, cook food, dine and entertain fabulously. This is our secret success of outdoor kitchen design. Much like on a menu are outdoor kitchen design layouts, appliance choices, bar and beverage selections all centered around a great outdoor kitchen space. It’s these ideas that have interacted with outdoor fabulous spaces that put 20 of our outdoor kitchen fabulous spaces in front of reader fans from national magazines such as Luxe, Hearth & Home, Casual Living, Outdoor Home, Luxury Pool, Landscape Contractor, Signature Kitchen & Bath, Greenwich Girl Magazine & hard cover book Creative Homeowner Signature’s Best OUTDOOR KITCHENS.
