Outdoor Kitchen & Lounge - Design Inspiration
Outfit your outdoor kitchen and lounge area with comfortable and casual outdoor furniture and fixtures.
When the sun moves around for a direct hit, pull the cord for instant shade on this retractable pergola. I bought this pergola last summer and absolutely love it! The canopy was removed late in the fall, but the frame stayed up and remained intact all winter. Just waiting another week to make sure we don’t get any more snow before I put the retractable canopy back on for this summer.
For all you lounge lizards out there, did you ever think you’d be making a move from your indoor La-Z-Boy recliner to an outdoor La-Z-Boy recliner? The outdoor model features quick drying cushions in colorfast, UV-resistant fabric and a rust-resistant steel frame wrapped in all-weather resin.
Belly up to the backyard bar or take a seat in a funky low-back outdoor bar stool. Resin wicker seems to be a theme with the outdoor furniture featured in this outdoor kitchen inspiration board. The Utby bar table from Ikea would make an excellent patio bar for your outdoor lounge area. Set it up under the pergola or under the stars.
You won’t break the bank or the dishes when you use melamine dinnerware for your outdoor dining.
Never one to pass up an opportunity for a play on words - the Island Gas Grill from Home Depot has received sizzling reviews! It has the style of a built-in gas grill with the added convenience of portablility.
At the top of my summer wish list for outdoor accessories is a set of rechargeable lights. With no outdoor electrical outlets, these provide the perfect alternative to having extension cords trailing out my patio door. Second on my wish list is some colorful outdoor pillows. Two would never be enough, but the ones from Pottery Barn shown above would be a great start.
