27 chic outdoor kitchen ideas
<p> If you want to use your outdoor kitchen all year-round, then investing in a high-tech pergola could be the way forward. Sure, it's not the cheapest approach, but it will provide all the comforts of an indoor room whilst allowing you to cook out in the fresh air. </p> <p> A louvered roof that adjusts at the touch of a button will enable you to control how much shade and shelter your setup gets – so even if it's swelteringly sunny or pouring with rain, you can cook in comfort. LED lighting will add a warm and enticing nighttime glow, whilst heaters mounted to the sides will mean that you'll be tempted to fire up the grill even in the cold depths of winter. </p><p></figure></div><div class=caas-carousel-slide-bottom><div class=figure-meta><div class=slide-current><span>2</span><span>/</span><span>28</span></div><div class=slide-description-wrapper><h2 class=slide-description-headline>Shelter your kitchen with a high-tech pergola</h2><div class=slide-description-caption><p> If you want to use your outdoor kitchen all year-round, then investing in a high-tech pergola could be the way forward.

Take a cue from this stylish setup that’s perfect for small gardens. It’s the ideal accompaniment to a nearby grill as it provides all the surface area needed for chopping, marinating, and mixing. Plus, the useful shelf up top can be used to store spices, utensils, and small snack bowls. And if you fancy a refreshing tipple alongside your meal, the design can be used as a bar, too.

Once the meal’s over, simply fold it back up neatly out of the way. We love the living wall above it too – if you want to recreate the look, why not fill it with easy-grow herbs for boosting your culinary creations?

This is due to the consistent use of warm-hued stone used for the fire pit, worktops, surrounding half walls, and traditional-style pizza oven.

Clever use of integrated lighting is dotted around the scene to cast a welcoming glow at nighttime, meaning that the area can be used well into the evening for hosting guests and cooking up a storm.

The paving adds another layer of visual interest whilst still complementing the zone. Meanwhile, plenty of potted plants add a welcome shot of greenery.

Continue the wooden theme for cabinetry, shelving, and adjoining fences for a homely, rustic look. But to keep things looking fresh, try adding a statement piece of garden furniture. For instance, a bright red bench, as seen here, adds a surprising twist of color and looks great against a neutral table. Add plenty of comfy cushions and you’ve got a perfect setup for all the family to enjoy.

Double up your worktops as a chic bar – just add overhanging pendant lights for a cozy feel when the sun goes down.

You can soften the look and up the feeling of romance further by encouraging climbing plants along a back wall, as seen here. Then sit back and admire the rest of your plot with a cold drink and a plateful of barbecued goodies – bliss.
