Outdoor Dining Spaces for Summer

As we launch into summer on the heels of the solstice, we turn our attention to all-things outdoors…including dining. As sunlight lingers longer and the warm evenings draw us outside, there’s no better place to unwind than your own backyard. Here are three outdoor dining spaces our Juanita home designers love.

Outdoor Kitchen

Grilling is a staple of summer fun. From gourmet kebabs to corn on the cob, there’s something scrumptious for every palette. A thoughtfully designed outdoor kitchen provides the space and tools you need to create your favorite summer meals without needing to run into the house frequently. A grill, sink, small fridge, and secure storage space are great features to get your started.

Outdoor Dining Spaces

Perched on an outlook in the San Juan Islands, Casa del Sol is a haven for summer luxury, and the outdoor dining space is no exception. Exposed to scenic vistas yet shaded by the exposed beams of the extended roof, the dining deck is the perfect space to dine with friends. Even long after the last plates are cleaned, the outdoor fireplace can radiate warmth for extended outdoor time.

Outdoor Lounging

Sometimes you simply need a perch from which to savor your morning coffee and take in the sunrise…or sip your wine and breathe in the sunset. An outdoor couch and lounge area brings your living room outside, making it the perfect space for appetizers with friends or quiet retreats for yourself.

As Juanita home designers, we understand that you want to embrace everything the Pacific Northwest summers have to offer…we share that desire! What’s your dream backyard space look like?
