Outdoor Kitchens

When you’ve gone out of your way to design a one-of-a-kind pool paradise to extend the beauty of your home into the outdoors, hot dogs on the hibachi just won’t do! If you want to keep the party poolside and out of the house, take your backyard to the next level by adding an outdoor kitchen tailor-made to suit your individual needs. Whether you just cook for yourself or a small family or like to entertain multiple guests and throw parties, we can design the perfect outdoor kitchen for you.

Depending on your needs and budget, your outdoor kitchen can be as simple as an outdoor grilling island or as complete as the kitchen you have indoors. And with attention to details of materials and style, it will be well-integrated into the style of your home and your pool.

With the possibility of all the conveniences you have in your indoor kitchen—plus a great deal more freedom—it’s no wonder that outdoor kitchens are becoming so wildly popular. Instead of cooking for your guests while they party outside, an outdoor kitchen allows you to be in the midst of the party while you cook!

At Montgomery Custom Pools, we work with you every step of the way, from the layout and design process, through the choice of materials, countertop options, and exterior finishes, and on to the choice of desired amenities and specific appliances. While the exact details of what to include in your outdoor kitchen are limited only by your imagination, here are some things to consider:

  • Grills, fire pits, ovens, stovetops, and smokers—Choose your cooking appliances based on your style of cooking and how many people you will be cooking for. Gone are the days of being limited to the charcoal or gas grill outdoors; if you can cook on it inside, there’s an outside version of it … and more! Open-flame cooking appliances may be made for gas, wood, or charcoal, depending upon your preferences and needs.
  • Refrigeration—You can limit your outdoor refrigeration to beverages—with wine chillers, keg tappers, and beverage refrigerators—or you can include food refrigeration under the counters or as full-size units. For a cooking experience that’s totally independent of your indoor kitchen, outdoor freezer units are a possibility, as well.
  • Cabinetry, Countertops, and Seating—Wood, stainless steel, tile, stone, or whatever else integrates with your home and backyard design, your outdoor kitchen cabinets and countertops can be built for as much or as little space as you need. And if you like to be surrounded by your guests while you’re cooking, consider counter seating in your outdoor kitchen and stay at the center of the party!
  • Sinks and Dishwashers—Water is an essential for cooking and washing, so a sink is a valuable element of your outdoor kitchen. From a small wet bar to a full-size double dish sink, you can include whatever kind of sink you need in your outdoor kitchen. And who wants to wash dishes in the middle of a party on a beautiful summer night? Consider adding a dishwasher for added convenience in your outdoor kitchen!

If you’ve got one in your indoor kitchen—and even if you don’t—you can have one in your outdoor kitchen, as well! As with our custom-designed pools and pool remodels, if you can imagine it, we can design and build it. Let us help you choose just the right elements for your outdoor kitchen as the perfect complement to your outdoor pool paradise.
