Cooking up a Good Time in a Great Outdoor Space
Can you feel it? The sun is shining, the heaviness of the cold is lifting, the daylight is lingering and the evenings are filled with gentle breezes. It could mean only one thing- summer is almost here and most of us will soon be savoring every moment we can outdoors.
Let's Take the Party Outside. Outdoor kitchens and dining spaces have fast become a growing trend in landscape design and we believe it's because their indoor counterparts are one of the most utilized rooms inside of a home. It's where people tend to spend the most time connecting. Planning a custom outdoor living space allows you to bridge what you love most about your home's interior with the splendor of your home's landscape and in the end provides you a unique place to come together with friends and family. Whether you are preparing and sharing a beautiful meal or whipping up a conversation over a delicious cocktail, the atmosphere becomes a little lighter and the laughter more lilting when there's room to breathe in the fresh air.
It's All About Personal Taste. When planning an outdoor kitchen and dining area for a client, the first thing we consider is how they want the space to work. Some clients prefer a simple area for grilling built onto a deck or patio allowing for easy access to their indoor kitchen. Others lean towards a more substantial footprint; a pavilion style that set deeper into the landscape that gives the feeling of a retreat with all the comforts and conveniences of home such as a living and dining area, and a kitchen with appliances and storage. Our professional designers listen intently to what the client envisions their outdoor living space to be- whether it's a casual place for family or a space created to entertain and serve up a chef's table experience.
Go Beyond the Grill. Who says it has to be hamburgers and hot dogs all the time? The options for outdoor kitchens are endless! While some may choose to have a small casual spot to simply throw a few things on the grill, others enjoy exhibiting their culinary prowess and giving their guests a five star experience complete with a cocktail station. Don't cook but love to entertain? How about calling the caterer and having the chef prepare food as guests admire the show? That's sure to be a conversation piece! From double-decked gas grills and smokers to wood fire hearths, to warming plates for side entrees, there is no limit to the range of meals you can prepare and entertaining you can accommodate. Today's manufacturers of outdoor kitchen equipment make products that can withstand the elements, so even things like counter tops, cabinets and sinks are built to last.
Comprehensive & Delicious Design. It's what we are known for. As one of the premier design/build firms on The Main Line, Terren takes on the project from the design phase to the laying the last piece of stone. With experienced stone masons, master craftsmen and master builders as part of our staff, we manage the entire build out from start to finish. The added bonus is that you don't have to call in someone else to bring in the foliage to make the area burst with character. From custom urns to edible gardens that are as picturesque as as they are functional, your outdoor kitchen and dining will be the envy of the neighborhood.
