An improvement to an Barbecue Island summarized:

To start off, this barbecue island was the first where we installed a back wall and roof covering using insulated panels. The customer had a big lanai area but wasn’t utilizing the space to the best of its ability and as a result, it was also open and hot. As a focus, we came in and built a back wall to back up too and also added a roof covering. A stucco façade was then applied to the back wall to match the existing stucco exterior. By keeping the area under cover, the components will stay much cleaner, need polished less often and any seams in the granite will hold up much better.

The Final Result:

A beautiful L-shaped outdoor kitchen. The cabinet base housing the grill is 7’11” in length. Coming off the front of the right side, the section housing the refrigerator is 8’2″ in length (as measured from the wall behind the grill). As with all of our outdoor kitchens, the base is framed with aluminum and wrapped with a wet weather backer board.The façade along the front, right and left sides of the outdoor kitchen is a Light Travertine stacked stone.


This is our favorite part to discuss! The countertop and backsplash are an upgraded Black San Gabriel granite. Please note, installing a larger back splash behind the grill means less maintenance since the smoke residue from the grill can simply be wiped off. So behind the grill we increase the size of the 4″ high backsplash. Further, to soften the look of this large 36” wide piece of granite that is centered behind the grill; the backsplash rises and arcs to approximately 35″ high at the center with the corners being 4” lower.

Please see the following components that were included in one of this summer’s kitchen projects:

We are so pleased with the total transformation of this space and hope the Customer gets immeasurable enjoyment from the space for year’s to come!

A total transformation to true outdoor living
