Designed with Outdoor Entertaining in Mind

With families spending more time at home, homeowners are looking for ways to add value and comfort to their homes through the addition of an outdoor living space. The owners of this home planned to take full advantage of their existing patio to turn the ordinary into an extraordinary outdoor living space for both informal family dinners and backyard events. 

The Buckingham Group’s design build team created an outdoor living plan that included an outdoor kitchen, an outdoor dining and entertaining area and an inviting lounge area complete with a fire-pit.

Elevating Family Dinner Night 
The Blaze Grill and Hood are the focal points of this outdoor kitchen. Designed for ease of grilling it is now possible to achieve restaurant-quality flavors in their backyard. And because the layout is designed with ample space for food prep and storage, everyday meals are created with ease on the custom concrete countertop.

Dining and Entertaining Made Simple

A refrigerated beverage center is conveniently located next to the dining area, making entertaining a breeze. This thoughtful space also incorporates storage for all serving wear, and an elegant sink and faucet so there’s limited need to head inside when entertaining.

Storage Built from the Elements

Weather-tight stainless-steel storage cabinets keep cooking utensils, serving dishes and other essentials close at hand and protected from the weather. The integrated warming cabinet provides plenty of warm food storage for larger gatherings.

Motorized Screens

If you want an outdoor living space that is insect free consider a combination of fixed and motorized screens. In Oklahoma we are plagued with flies and mosquitos who are attracted by the smell of food. A combination of fixed and motorized screens will make a world of difference. At the touch of a button, motorized screens can close or open, serving as an insect control barrier for your outdoor living space.
