Ultimate Outdoor Kitchens
Outdoor kitchens are experiencing a surge in popularity as growing numbers of people are transforming the exterior spaces around their homes-backyards, patios, decks, side yards-into open-air living spaces that serve as extensions of the house and, in the process, forge indoor/outdoor connections that greatly enhance any property.
Ultimate Outdoor Kitchens showcases twenty-six kitchens across the country, in a spectrum of styles and for a variety of budgets. Whether a simple stone cook station or an elaborate outdoor entertainment room, each outdoor kitchen in these pages has been selected to illustrate the beauty and practicality of alfresco cooking and dining.

Whether you're looking to create a budget-friendly kitchen with plenty of character or something a little snazzier with special design elements or a kitchen equipped with lots of extras and no budgetary limitations, this book serves up abundant ideas for creating your own ultimate outdoor kitchen.
