We only get so much sunshine here in the Northwest, so when we hang out around the pool, who wants to go inside to cook and enjoy a meal? Here, we reinvented an empty, ugly outdoor passageway into a fabulous outdoor kitchen, bar and dining area. We incorporated Kalamazoo Outdoor Gourmet stainless steel cabinets, Caesarstone countertops, ample and interesting lighting and some home touches to blend the indoors with the outdoors.

Lord Design’s kitchen design was built and installed by BC Custom Construction. The new custom iron garden gate was designed by Lord Design and expertly built and installed by West-Meyer Fence. Photography by Steve Eltinge of Eltinge Photography.

Learn more about the process in this Outdoor Living article on Houzz or check out the feature in 1859 Magazine. Gorgeous!

"The biggest difference Arlene has made in my ongoing project is that she and I just "clicked." When that happens with a designer, you know the result will be perfect!!" Peggy Cvach
