Outdoor Kitchen Design
An outdoor kitchen is as personal as you are, so we incorporate your personal style throughout each focal point while making the most of your space, extending the overall living space and adding value to your home. Whether you want a clean and contemporary look, a kid-friendly space, or a rustic outdoor kitchen, our design team can bring your outdoor kitchen ideas to life.
We marry form with function so that an outdoor kitchen can do everything an indoor kitchen does, and more! Ideal for entertaining larger parties with shorter prep times, a kitchen designed around the grilling area lets you maximize counter space and functional zones for simultaneous cooking, prepping, and entertaining.
Today’s outdoor kitchens can range from this larger space to a simple outdoor grilling island to help hosts prepare for any type of company.
Outdoor Kitchen Planning
We work with our clients to plan the entire outdoor entertaining space as part of a single functional plan. Our planning process seamlessly incorporates dining areas, cooking areas, and even pool areas that need to often coexist.
Our design team will help you consider the flow of traffic as part of your outdoor kitchen visualization. We plan the outdoor kitchen so that the flow moving from refrigerator to counter space to cooking area is easy to navigate by understanding how you’ll store food and drinks, along with what you’re likely to retrieve from inside the house.
Moscarino also plans for the future, as many of our outdoor living projects are phased over several years. As a part of this future planning process, we assist in creating the road map for how every connection will be made above and below ground.
Extending Kitchen Functionality
When exploring outdoor kitchen ideas, we get a better understanding of the type of cooking you’d like to do outside that your indoor kitchen doesn’t permit.
Meat smokers and custom outdoor pizza ovens are great ways to bring more functionality to an outdoor kitchen.
Open Air Structures for Your Outdoor Kitchen
The most significant difference between indoor and outdoor kitchen design is often the shelter and durability considerations due to exposure to the elements
We work with homeowners to design open-air patio structures to keep sun and rain as well as hungry birds away from their outdoor kitchens.
Our outdoor kitchen designs incorporate ways to protect expensive cabinets, appliances and counter tops from inclement weather to extend their lifespan.
