Outdoor Kitchen with Island - IBDODR.com

Outdoor Kitchen Islands

We started our business designing outdoor kitchen islands, and we continue to specialize in this area. We work hard to be sure that your island will work in the outdoor space you choose, fits your decor, and meets all safety requirements and local building codes. We offer six different basic designs that can be customized, mixed, and matched to accommodate your outdoor kitchen area. No matter which of these six designs you choose, we can make any adjustments or additions you need to create your ultimate outdoor kitchen island. We will carefully take every measurement to ensure the plans are drawn exactly to scale to be sure your island is correctly designed from the beginning. We can incorporate your grill into the island, even if you have a Kamado-style cooker such as the Big Green Egg. We also provide both stainless steel and Naturecast cabinet units to give you the storage area you need in your outdoor kitchen for convenience and aesthetic purposes.

Wood-Fired Ovens

If you have always wanted to cook a wood-fired pizza at home, IBD Outdoor Rooms can design the perfect wood-fired oven unit for your outdoor kitchen. With five different design options, we can also add extra components to your wood-fired oven, such as a wider base cabinet and a firewood holder. The added bonus of having a wood-fired oven in your outdoor kitchen is that it can be used as a fireplace throughout the year, which allows you to enjoy your outdoor living space even when the temperatures drop.

Outdoor Fireplaces

To add the perfect focal point to your outdoor kitchen, IBD Outdoor Rooms can design a fireplace or fire pit that suits your tastes. We even offer eclectic Art of Fire fireplaces that will give your backyard a unique and artsy look. We do strongly recommend that you hire a chimney and fireplace technician who is certified by the National Fireplace Institute (NFI) or the Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA) to install any fireplace or fire pit we have designed. This will protect you for important safety reasons because these technicians know exactly what they are doing. Additionally, many manufacturers’ warranties will be voided if you do not hire a certified technician to do the installation job.

Choosing an outdoor fireplace that’s just right for your home, your needs, and you style can be hard. We at IBD Outdoor Rooms can help you pick out the best one from among our wide array of options.

While summer days are hot and sunny, the nights of the season can be cool, and it is really never too warm for a soft, crackling fire after dark. Adding an outdoor fireplace to your patio creates warmth, both literally as a heat source and figuratively as a focal point for your family and friends when relaxing or entertaining. IBD Outdoor Rooms offers a variety of outdoor fireplaces, including Art of Fire, visual expressions of art functioning as outdoor fireplaces. Our team can help you customize the perfect outdoor fireplace and install it on your patio, allowing you to enjoy the beauty and warmth of fire outside your home.

Modern Look

If you need design inspiration for how to set up your outdoor fireplace with your patio, the website for the cable channel HGTV posted 20 Cozy Outdoor Fireplaces, with pictures of different patio designs integrating indoor fireplaces. One features a large outdoor fireplace as the star centerpiece with its stone facade, highlighted by a black iron-accented patio. Another highlight, a double-sided outdoor fireplace you can enjoy from a covered section of your patio, if it rains. If you want the more contemporary, modern look, an idea infusing an IBD Outdoor Rooms favorite, Art of Fire-like mod circular metal fire pit with curved deck seating was eye-catching in the HGTV collection of outdoor fireplaces blended in with patios, lakes, and decks.

Traditional Look

Into more of the traditional outdoor stone hearth fireplace style? With choices between two different series of fireplaces, IBD Outdoor Rooms recommends Estate Series as these outdoor fireplaces are customized to fit anywhere they are CSIA-certified to be installed, meaning they can be any size, any fuel type (wood, gas, bio-fuel, or gel fuel), and can be vented or vent-free. This gives you so many options in just about everything! These fireplaces start out with a cabinet and a hearth base, with options for extended hearth bases and dress out bands. Chases are then selected, with a choice of Classique 42-inch and 72-inch heights, Stratford 36-inch height, Tuscan 42-inch height, and to add vertical appeal to an existing chimney, the Venetian Chase – 1872 is also used commonly to clear out wood-burning smoke or vented gas log fumes, as it adds height.

Contemporary Classic Look

If you are seeking a more contemporary classic look, you may be more drawn to our Veranda Series. Providing a ready to finish surface, the fireplace cabinet surrounds a manufactured outdoor fireplace. This cabinet is the required piece to be pipeless and serves as the base for all components of the fireplace. The qualified staff at IBD Outdoor Rooms will be able to help you build on with choices of front and side hearths, a chase top dress out, and the elegant Veranda wood box. You then choose between chases; like the Estates, your choices are Classique, Stratford, Tuscan, and Venetian.

As you can see, you have so many different outdoor fireplace design ideas to warm up your patio, so contact IBD Outdoor Rooms today to request a consultation with our experienced staff about designing your own outdoor fireplace.
