Outdoor Kitchens to Die For

While we can’t deny that summer is inching ever closer to its end (here in Steamboat we’ve had a sudden uptick of rain, cold nights and chilly mornings), it’s not time to pull out the winter clothes just yet!  There’s still time for one last hurrah, and what better way to do that than with an outdoor celebration?  And, where better to have an outdoor celebration than in  an outdoor living space with an outdoor kitchen?  We love the outside, and during the summertime in Steamboat there is nowhere else we’d rather be- I bet you feel the same about where you live!  Outdoor kitchens make outdoor living and entertaining a convenient and inviting option.

Most outdoor kitchens include some sort of cover/roof, a grill, counter space, and a sink… after that the possibilities are endless!  There are outdoor kitchens with ovens and stoves, kitchen islands, wet bars, fire pits, refrigerators, you name it!  Here are a few of our favorite outdoor kitchens of all shapes and sizes!


I love this kitchen because it mixes the indoors with the outdoors.  This space has all the features and coziness of an indoor kitchen, but is completely open on one side!  


This western outdoor kitchen is just adorable!  This would be a great “chuck wagon” style outdoor kitchen for a ranch or a Western Cowboy style home.

Can you guess what I love about this one?  The built in fire pit of course!  Kebab and marshmallow roasting has never been easier!  

This one is great because it is detached from any other building, and the kitchen is a little area all its own.  How much fun would it be to enjoy breakfast out on that patio?

This more traditional looking outdoor kitchen is covered by a pergola, and I love the “kitcheny” stained glass hanging from the ceiling, as well as the creative wood storage below the counter.

Here’s another pergola covered outdoor kitchen- this one has a more eclectic feel to it.  My favorite thing about this kitchen is the round butcher block table/island, and my second favorite thing is the tile backsplash!

The mix of styles in this outdoor kitchen are great!  The distressed painted wood combined with the stainless appliances and adobe wall give a really unique feel that is just perfect for summertime!
This much more contemporary outdoor kitchen is also beautiful, and fits right with the house it occupies.  The accentuated lines and stainless steel appliances make for a sharp looking kitchen, indoor or out!
I hope these lovely kitchens have inspired you to spend the rest of your summer days in the great outdoors!  We’ll have more posts coming up in the next couple of weeks that will include how to create your own outdoor living space, and tips on choosing and purchasing outdoor furniture.  For more fun outdoor living ideas, you can like us on Facebook or follow us on Pinterest!
