Rustic Style Custom Outdoor Kitchen Design
Custom Rustic Style Outdoor Kitchen Designs from Custom Image Hardscapes
Here at Custom Image Hardscapes, we have a lot of customers come to us wanting a rustic style outdoor kitchen. Basically, they are looking for something that has the look of a backwoods, old-fashioned log cabin, but also has all the amenities of civilization that we have grown to know and love. As it so turns out, we specialize in rustic style designs.
Here are just a few of the ways that we can give you that rustic look that you crave:
- Natural stone: Most of our outdoor kitchens feature natural stone on the walls and under the counters, because this is such a popular look in Sacramento, CA. We have a wide variety of colors and patterns you can choose from, so that whatever the style of your house is, or whatever your own artistic tastes are, you can be assured of getting an outdoor kitchen that suits you perfectly.
- Concrete countertops: We use concrete countertops both for their durability and their versatility. It is possible to make concrete look like just about anything you can imagine. For some people, a rustic style means the look of unfinished concrete, so we just give it a polish to help seal it and keep it food-safe, while also giving it that raw, industrial look. For other people, a rustic style means the look of butcher block or wooden counters of some sort, which of course you can’t put outside unless you want it to weather incredibly fast and to always require re-staining and protecting. But with concrete countertops, you can have the look of butcher block with the durability and weatherproofness of concrete. What’s not to love?
- Open fires: There’s something about an open fire that connects us with our ancestors, all the way back to when the first caveman learned how to rub two sticks together to make a spark. We can build you an outdoor fire pit to go in your outdoor kitchen or patio, or if you want to be able to cook delicious food while also enjoying an open fire you might opt for an outdoor pizza oven. Believe us, you have not tasted how delicious bread can be until you’ve tasted bread that has been cooked on a wood-burning outdoor pizza oven.
- Built-in benches: For those homeowners who have enough room to spare, built-in benches are a popular rustic style touch to an outdoor kitchen. These benches can circle a fire pit, form a border around the patio itself, create a retaining wall for a planter, or be in any other pattern or configuration you can imagine. The sky is the limit here, so let your imagination run wild! The best thing about built-in benches for your patio is that you can put comfy pillows out when you want to use them, and then throw the pillows in storage when it looks likely to rain – no need to lug heavy furniture under an awning.
- Custom swimming pools: While swimming pools by themselves might not seem rustic per se, at Custom Image Hardscapes we can put in the decorative and design elements you crave to achieve the rustic look in your Sacramento, CA back yard. From natural stone effects to waterfalls, we can make your swimming pool look like it is really an organic element in the landscape.
