Inside a Growing Trend with Boulder’s Artisan Outdoor Kitchens
Outdoor kitchens are having a moment in Colorado, and it’s no surprise why. With the state’s 300 days of sunshine, exciting new kitchen technologies, and more cabinetry and cooking appliance customization options than ever, homeowners are eager to create outdoor kitchen spaces that can satisfy all their entertainment and outdoor cooking and dining desires.
“A well-designed outdoor kitchen not only adds tremendous value to a home but creates a new space for entertaining family and friends,” says Jeff Stone, owner of Boulder’s Artisan Outdoor Kitchens. “For us, outdoor cabinetry is as close as it’s ever been to being designed and customized just like indoor kitchens, meaning homeowners can create outdoor kitchen spaces that look and function exactly how they want them to.”
Stone notes that the days of stucco and industrial-style stainless steel panels as the only options for outdoor kitchen cabinetry are over. Homeowners can now use powder coating to add stylish finishes to their stainless steel cabinetry and can choose from a newfound variety in cabinet door styles, opening up ample opportunities to create outdoor kitchens synonymous with the style of their indoor kitchens or wholly unique, stand-alone spaces.
There is also the pure fun of incorporating distinct cooking appliances and amenities into outdoor kitchen spaces. From pizza ovens to rotisseries, bartending set-ups, oven hoods, and more, outdoor kitchens are now being created in the visions of any number of styles, tastes and functional needs.
