Backyard kitchens are the best! They are a continuing trend this summer at Kitchen Designs. Our clients love cooking and entertaining outside, and the variety of outdoor entertaining products available in appliances, refrigeration, weather-proof cabinetry, and lighting makes it easier than ever to create truly special backyard kitchens. Like indoor kitchens, backyard kitchens require meticulous planning and good design. Kitchen Designs by Ken Kelly carefully plans the design and location of your outdoor kitchen to ensure the most comfortable and functional entertaining space for you and your guests. For example, we pay close attention to prevailing winds when deciding on the kitchen’s location. The last thing you want is smoke blowing into guests faces or into your home. In addition, the cook should be part of the party, and the design needs to accommodate the social aspect of cooking and grilling outdoors.
Here are some new photos of incredible backyard kitchens in our Kalamazoo Outdoor Gourmet line:
This Kalamazoo Hybrid Grill gives you the ability to cook with charcoal, gas, or wood. The hybrid fire grilling drawer diffuses heat from the burners for gas-only cooking, or you can choose to place a bed of charcoal or wood in the hybrid drawer for a live fire cooking experience. The refrigeration is suitable for storing food outdoors and maintaining food-safe temperatures even when it is hot outside. The beer keg refrigerator (kegerator) allows for draft beer at the perfect temperature. The stainless steel cabinetry is engineered with a seamless rain gutter that surrounds every door and drawer opening, allowing for a truly weather-tight design.
This outdoor kitchen showcases Kalamazoo’s artisan pizza oven. The countertop design shown here requires no installation, but if you prefer to build it into your masonry, we can do that for you.
Ken and I recently had an event where we set up two pizza ovens side by side and went a little crazy with the pizza making don’t you think?
As you can see, we thoroughly enjoy this equipment! An outdoor kitchen is a great enhancement to your home. Whether you need a smaller New York city rooftop kitchen or a sprawling, full-blown outdoor kitchen in your backyard, our designers are extremely knowledgeable and will offer you the best product advice for your needs.
