NJ Outdoor Kitchen Design
Custom outdoor kitchens add tasteful elegance and superior functionality to the outdoor living space. Rivaling extravagant luxury kitchens inside the home, state- of-the-art outdoor kitchens feature ultimate convenience and distinct character. Natural stone veneer, custom corbels, granite countertops, and stylish glass tile backsplashes produce high-performance cooking areas that also benefit the aesthetic appeal of the landscape design.
Cipriano’s landscape architecture division designs custom outdoor kitchens that integrate not only into the lifestyle of the homeowner but also into the new or existing landscape and pool design. Balusters used to line an upper patio may reappear in pockets of the natural stone kitchen for added interest and integration. Natural stone veneer can be borrowed from the home or cabana to look as if the structure were built alongside the home or pulled directly out of its surrounding architecture. The depth of design can even occur in the details of matching stone corbels for the outdoor kitchen and outdoor fireplace mantle. Beyond simply fitting into the scenery, custom outdoor kitchens have the ability to stand out with stylish backsplashes, statuesque pergolas, and unique stone detailing and engraving. –Outdoor Kitchens NJ
Landscaping ideas with outdoor kitchens must consider function as well as fashion. High-performance outdoor kitchens will increase the convenience and usability of the back yard. Warming drawers offer a place to keep anything from hot food to pool towels at a comfortable temperature. Refrigerators and kegerators provide cold beverages to help fight off the grueling summer heat at the outdoor bar. The highest quality grills and side-burners give homeowners every reason to cook delicious meals outside. For increased functionality, electrical outlets can be included to plug in appliances, televisions, or speakers for an iPod. To wind down at the end of a long day of entertaining, outdoor dishwashers and sinks can be used to clean up in the comfort of lush landscaping on a warm summer night.

Case Study: Backyard Outdoor Kitchen/Bar and Grill Design for a Corner Lot in Saddle River New Jersey.
Our prospect reached out to us because they wanted to create a unique outdoor entertaining area. He told us he had purchased home with the swimming pool but there wasn’t enough entertaining area for the adults, he also felt the new area should be its own destination somewhat away from the home.. In addition to the outdoor kitchen/ bar area there were concerns with the functionality and finishes of the existing grill.
The homeowners described their dream backyard as a vacation destination, the kind of place in which a whole family could spend time together. As the homeowners wanted to be able to entertain guests in their new backyard, we had to design it to be comfortable for a family of four people, but also large enough to accommodate several parties of fifty or more. The main challenge was incorporating all of the aspects desired by the clients while remaining within the stringent lot coverage specifications of the Saddle River zoning department and, also, being sure to leave enough room to play on the swing set or to throw the baseball around in the grass.

Landscape and Masonry Features:
This property had an existing pool, but was lacking ample space to entertain guests and was also lacking sufficient shade for relief from the summer sun. The space was designed to have two full service bars with a decorative pergola above for shade. Guests can get a cold drink at the curved serving bar during parties and take a seat on the seatwall while enjoying conversation with the other guests. We created a full service outdoor kitchen & bar, including two sinks, a refrigerator, an icemaker, an outdoor television and a sound system. We also renovated the existing grill to match the new design. The result is a beautiful full service outdoor kitchen and bar on the patio. As with all Cipriano products, no detail was overlooked. Everything; the pre-cast profiles, the brick accents, the patio stone, and the tile selection, everything was chosen specifically to add to the functionality of the project and also to create a beautiful backyard landscape. The finished product is a luxurious and inviting space perfect for outdoor entertaining.
