A Subtle Approach
You hardly notice the kitchen components on this patio―and that’s a good thing. The cooking area doesn’t detract from the
Mediterranean style or take up too much space.
• Use plate-glass and crank-out casement windows to protect cooks from wind and rain without obstructing the view.
• Incorporate punches of color to energize a neutral space. Here, vintage wicker furniture was painted a vibrant green to coordinate with the accent floor tiles.
• Carefully consider lighting. Size chandeliers and lanterns to fit the space. Add task lighting over kitchen prep areas, if necessary.
