No matter what time of year it is, you love to entertain! However, indoor parties always got so crowded and you spent so much time in the kitchen that you missed out on all the fun. That's why you took the party outside and installed a beautiful outdoor kitchen. Not only did you expand your living space and increase the value of your home, but you can now fully prepare meals in an open-air setting and still be a part of the action.
While you love your outdoor entertaining space, you have decided to take things up a notch by adding a pool to the mix. The right pool and outdoor kitchen combo can help you create a stunning resort-like oasis that highlights your signature style, so take a look at these design ideas for the ultimate poolside living experience.
Your current outdoor kitchen is the embodiment of island spirit, complete with palm frond accents and your very own tiki hut. So why not carry on this theme with a kidney-shaped pool and swim up bar? Your outdoor kitchen will fit perfectly within the middle indentation of the pool and give you lots of surface space to install a large eating area and swim-up barstools. You can incorporate island designs in your tile work and add fire bowl or waterfall features to complete your tropical paradise.
Inspired by the simple beauty found only in nature, your outdoor kitchen design is overflowing with stone masonry, granite countertops, and rustic wood accents. Straight lines and symmetrical shapes are not commonly found in nature, so you should consider installing a freeform pool. With natural rock waterfalls, an elevated pedestal spa, and redwood or stone planters full of greenery, you can create a serene oasis that even Mother Nature would approve of.
Clean lines and stainless steel are major components of your eye-catching outdoor kitchen, so your pool should be equally as dramatic! A simple rectangular pool may be your first inclination, but there are many ways to add a little extra flair. Try using a slimmer design (more of an "I" shape) with an infinity edge and in-pool lighting elements to punch up the drama. Or keep the rectangle shape and section off a square at one end to seamlessly incorporate the hot tub without taking up additional patio space.
