Charlotte Outdoor Kitchens & Fireplaces
|There is nothing more enjoyable than spending time outdoors around an outdoor fireplace with your family and friends. Summertime backyard barbecues and pool parties are the common outdoor activity when entertaining in the summer months. By adding an outdoor fireplace, outdoor deck or outdoor fire pit to your yard or patio deck you can add to the enjoyment you receive while spending time outside. Outdoor fireplaces and outdoor fire pits make it possible for you to spend your evenings outside during the summer by adding the warm glow of a fire.||
Outdoor fireplaces and fire pits also extend your outdoor season by allowing you to enjoy your yard and patio long into the fall and winter months.
One of the many amenities you can consider is an outdoor kitchen that can include not only a snazzy grill, but custom tile counters with built-in Subzero refrigerator drawers to store condiments and salad makings, as well as additional storage for dinnerware, glasses, and flatware. And let us not forget the dishwashing drawers, wine cooler, and deluxe sound system.
So what do you need to create a pleasant, functional Charlotte outdoor kitchen that works for you? The essential elements include a cooking area usually centered around a grill and a counter on which to organize meal preparation. Below the counter, shelf and drawer space can easily house tools, dishes, and napkins to prevent unnecessary trips to the kitchen.
Remember when outdoor spaces were merely used as places for the roll-out barbecue grill, a haven for swing-sets and a place to contain dogs and kids? Not any more. Even entry and side courtyards have returned in full bloom -- boasting fountains, wine tasting rooms, fireplaces and comfy lounging spaces. History does indeed repeat itself, and similar to the lifestyle in ancient Roman days – homeowners are finding that the outdoors can be a place to live as well as play.
It seems Charlotte homeowners not only want outdoor kitchens, but outdoor “great rooms” as well.
More and more homeowners are looking to incorporate the kitchen, living room, and dining room with an outdoor great room concept, ideal for larger family gatherings for smoother transitions between indoor and outdoor guest traffic.
