From fun and functional outdoor kitchens, to unique decorative touches, here are are some ideas on how this can be done:
Go the Extra Mile with a Pizza Oven
A wood-fired pizza oven will certainly inspire joyful gatherings in your outdoor kitchen area. This unique focal point can be implemented as part of your fire feature, grill island, or countertop surface. With Unilock Brussels Dimensional Stone, you can compliment a traditional or Tuscan-style outdoor kitchen. Any concerns about the durability of the patio flooring can be put to rest with Unilock pavers featuring Ultima Concrete Technology. With Richcliff pavers, for example, you can add a modern touch of elegance to poolside surrounds, while extending the outdoor kitchen area to the pool patio and ensuring long-term strength and durability. Clean spills and stains easily and leave cracked and damaged pavers in the past with Richcliff pavers – part of the EnduraColor Plus range, exclusive to Unilock.
Unilock products offer a broad color palette, perfect not only for any landscape theme but also a range of personal styles. Whether you love gentle pastel colors, handsome greys, earthy tones or bright pops of colors, Unilock has something to suit your tastes. Extend your indoor kitchen outdoors and connect it to your pool area with Umbriano pavers. Umbriano pavers provide a non-slip, stain-resistant, durable surface that will absolutely transform your poolside outdoor kitchen. To add contrasting color and create separate, fully functional outdoor spaces, consider borders created from Courtstone in Basalt or Belgian Blue.
Fun and Functional
A bright blue swimming pool and an inviting outdoor kitchen are a winning combination that will make your outdoor social gatherings a blast. Perfect for families with kids, and BBQ parties, these two elements not only make get-togethers easier, but also ensure that no one is excluded from the fun. For additional comfort, shield your outdoor kitchen with a wooden pergola, or add a fire pit or outdoor fireplace where guests can join the chef and warm up after they swim, or enjoy a break from the sun in the shade. The Sunset Firepit Kit is ideal for adding an extra touch to the inviting atmosphere of an outdoor kitchen, dining, or gathering area. This charming fire pit offers a simple stone texture and traditional colors that contribute to a positive atmosphere.
Landscape lighting livens up a landscape, highlights focal features and contributes to better safety and security – important features of a kitchen and pool area. Illuminate accent walls, create drama, or add a subtle ambiance around the focal points of the landscape with a professional outdoor lighting plan. The proper use of lighting will enhance the radiance of the pool water and add contrast to the architecture of the kitchen. For beautiful textures to complement your lighting, consider the natural stacked flagstone look of Rivercrest Wall. This wall unit is made using Reala Surface Technology. Reala is an advanced concrete technology, exclusive to Unilock, used to craft products with an ultra-realistic texture, cast from actual natural stone pieces. Rivercrest Wall comes in the subtle shades of Buff and Coastal Slate.
