outdoor kitchen conceptsJune has arrived, and we are approaching the official start of summer. Since most of us are already experiencing warmer weather and have begun planning outdoor barbeque extravaganzas, we wanted to share an example of how one homeowner is capitalizing on the opportunity to take outdoor entertaining to the next level this season.

Nestled in Avon, Conn., this stunning backyard oasis, designed by Michael Gotowala, founder of the Outdoor Kitchen Design Store by Preferred Properties, a dealer of Brown Jordan Outdoor Kitchens, consists of two levels and highlights multiple cooking and grilling stations.

The upper level features Brown Jordan Outdoor Kitchens’ cabinetry, along with a stone grill island and sprawling granite countertops providing ample space for caterers to prepare lavish spreads. The cabinets, made from all stainless steel, feature a bead board door style, powder coated with Brown Jordan’s exclusive Java II color, and completed with hardware hand-crafted from solid bronze. Also included is a refrigerator that can house beverages and wines.

On the lower level is a wood-burning pizza oven station that also features Brown Jordan Outdoor Kitchens’ cabinetry and a custom hibachi griddle area. Much like the full-fledged kitchen on the second story, these grilling areas are set in stone, completing a cohesive outdoor living area made for festivities.

By dividing the cooking and grilling stations as well as the living areas, Michael and his team essentially replicated an indoor floor plan for the outdoors. The final result superseded the client’s desires well beyond the anticipated exterior living spaces to coincide with their luxurious lifestyle.
