Here in the northeast, seasons come and go every few months bringing drastic changes in the weather. These seasonal changes inspire a range of home improvement projects from enclosed outdoor living spaces to pools and spas for summertime fun. Another outdoor living upgrade inspired by the summer is outdoor kitchens. For any patio project regardless of the budget and usable space, the outdoor kitchen is a versatile and trendy feature to add.
A quality outdoor kitchen combines functionality and appearance, and the use of natural stone veneer on an outdoor kitchen hits the mark for us every time. This Old New England Rounds outdoor kitchen (below) is compact but has a set in grill and fridge, which is all you need to start cooking while enjoying a cold beverage.

When highlighting functionality, the outdoor kitchen below and its wrap-around design check multiple boxes off including a bar-height countertop for guests and family members to sit at, all the counter space an outdoor kitchen could need, a built-in grill and custom pizza oven, along with enough storage to avoid heading back inside for cooking supplies. Whoever is using this space is set up for success, whether hosting a pizza night with family or throwing a large bash.
Starting a project looking to completely transform a large outdoor space?
