Outdoor Kitchens & Bar Areas


The Structure

There are several ways we can build the base cabinet of your outdoor kitchen, but generally it will be constructed of concrete masonry block with a brick or stone-wrapped exterior. In the case of unusual shapes or designs, we will build it with steel framing. There are many different designs and shapes to choose from, such as curved, straight, island or “L” shaped. Whatever your needs are, we can design and build your outdoor kitchen to fit your style and budget.

Plumbing

Installing underground pipes, drains, and gas lines are typically required with outdoor kitchens for the sink, grill, and ice maker. Our licensed plumbers will handle all of the plumbing work associated with the outdoor kitchen. Our plumbers will run the underground gas and water lines/drains and make all connections from your home to the gas grill and sink.

Countertops

There are many options for countertops, but one of the most popular choices is granite. We use 3cm granite which is better suited for outdoor climates/temperature. The 3cm granite is very heavy and durable and there are many options for your edges such as full bullnose, half bullnose, beveled, flat polish and chiseled. We have thousands of slab colors to choose from. Granite is a natural material and can vary from slab to slab, so we allow our clients to hand select the exact slab that will finish off their outdoor kitchen or bar. All of our granite is separated into levels depending on color and origin and you will have the option to upgrade to any color you like. The showroom also has a wide variety of sinks and faucets to personalize your sink just the way you want it.

Another design options for the countertops is adding a high bar or incorporating the high bar with a round table at one end for additional seating. You can turn your outdoor kitchen into the neighborhood bar & grill for entertaining your friends and family! Granite is a beautiful choice that will last for a very long time with very little maintenance. Nothing beats the beauty of our polished or leather finish natural stone!

Tile

We can build a tile backsplash with a unique design and there are an unlimited number of designs to choose from. If you can think of it, we can do it. From natural stone tile to ceramic and porcelain, mosaics, glass, or accent tiles, the sky is the limit on what you can do with tile design. Together we will go over your options so you can pick out the tile that you want to fit your style and budget.

Stainless Steel Components

There are many different kitchen components that can be used to make your outdoor grilling experience more functional and efficient. Stainless steel storage doors, utensil drawers, trash can slide-out drawers, paper towel holders, ice makers, fridges, wine coolers, crawfish boiling stations, and many other options are available. We have been the sole builder for outdoor kitchens and fire components for The Fire Box (link “The Fire Box” to www.thefireboxinc.com) in Humble, Texas now for over 8 years. At their Humble location you can preview a wide range of different grills from Fire Magic (link “Fire Magic” to http://www.firemagicoutdoor.com/), AOG (link “AOG” to www.AOGGrill.com) and RCS (link “RCS” to www.rcsgasgrills.com). Each manufacturer will have a wide variety of sizes and features to best serve your cooking needs, whether it be a gas grill, a wood-burning grill or a combination of the two. You will also be able to choose other options such as LED lighting, side burners, infrared searing element and rotisserie. The grills we recommend are beautiful and very well-built, and will last a very long time if maintained well. A local service tech will handle any warranty needs for your new grill.

We will install all of your components, including the grill and appliances, so that you will have a very functional and efficient outdoor kitchen!

Fire Features

Adding a fire feature will give you a warm, cozy feel that will beautify your outdoor living space. Features such as outdoor fireplaces, firepits, and table-top flames can be a great focal point of your outdoor living space. We also can build brick-fired pizza ovens and open-flame grills. Gas lanterns and gas tiki torches are also great ways to add unique lighting and a completely different feel for you and your guests.
