Crafting the Perfect Outdoor Kitchen in Winston Salem, NC

Design Team


Winston Salem, NC is known for its charming neighborhoods and beautiful outdoor spaces. Recently, I had the pleasure of working on a project that combined both of these elements, designing a custom outdoor kitchen for a family who loves to entertain. The goal was to create a space that was both functional and inviting, perfect for gatherings with family and friends.

Understanding the Client's Vision

When the clients approached me, they expressed a clear vision for their outdoor space. They wanted a small, custom outdoor kitchen that included both a gas grill and a ceramic grill. Their dream was to have a place where they could cook delicious meals while still being able to visit with their guests. Additionally, they envisioned a cozy seating area around a firepit, complete with wood Adirondack chairs, to create a warm and welcoming atmosphere.

Design Strategy

To bring this vision to life, I focused on combining elegance with functionality. The centerpiece of the kitchen would be the Challenger cart, topped with a sleek Dekton countertop. For cooking, we selected the Delta Heat grill and side burner, along with a Big Green Egg for ceramic grilling. These high-quality appliances ensured that the clients could prepare a variety of dishes with ease.

The cabinetry in the kitchen was designed in a sophisticated gray, which complemented the white and gray countertop beautifully. This color scheme provided a modern and elegant look, while also being versatile enough to fit in with the natural surroundings.

For the seating area, we chose Jensen ipe Adirondack chairs. The natural wood finish of these chairs added a rustic charm to the space, perfectly aligning with the client's desire for a cozy and inviting atmosphere. Placing these chairs around the firepit created a focal point where family and friends could gather and relax.

The Outcome: Crafting the Perfect Outdoor Kitchen

The completed outdoor kitchen and seating area exceeded the clients' expectations. The elegant design of the kitchen, with its gray cabinets and white and gray countertop, provided a beautiful backdrop for the high-quality cooking appliances. The Delta Heat grill and Big Green Egg offered versatility for all types of cooking, making the space not only stylish but also highly functional.

The natural wood Adirondack chairs around the firepit created a warm and inviting atmosphere, perfect for evenings spent with family and friends. The combination of sophisticated design elements and comfortable seating made this outdoor space a true extension of the clients' home.
