Because a ceiling protects the wood cabinets and interior-grade appliances from the weather, this fully loaded kitchen has
both indoor style and outdoor ambience.
• Maximize seating with a bar-height countertop and stools. Guests who tend to congregate in the kitchen can be near the action without being in the way.
• Paint walls and ceilings bright white to make your outdoor room appear larger.
• Choose furniture options that allow for flexibility. The covers on these director’s chairs can be easily replaced as they age or modified to suit the season.
• Mix up your flooring. Here, hardworking, easy-to-clean ceramic tile defines the cooking space, while decking sets off the dining area.
