If you have a pool at your home, then these photos are your inspiration for adding a poolside cabana with an outdoor kitchen, comfy seating, bar seating, television and outdoor fireplace. Oh my! This combination outdoor living project in Heath, TX, represents customized outdoor living at its finest, and we are thrilled to show it off to you.
These Heath, TX, homeowners had a beautiful pool complemented by gorgeous landscaping—don’t you just love those ornamental grasses! They wanted to create their own getaway location next to the pool by adding an outdoor kitchen and so much more … They called on Archadeck of Northeast Dallas-Southlake to design the perfect free-standing cabana to include everything but the kitchen sink. It literally has everything within it but the kitchen sink.
We are huge fans of anchoring an outdoor kitchen with a large stone fireplace. The clients chose to use the same stone, Oklahoma flagstone, throughout. Even the kitchen counter surface is made of flagstone, as is the bar. The patio floor is stain-and-stamp concrete using a flagstone pattern stamp. It’s got to be one of the most beautiful stain-and-stamp concrete patios we have built. The color of the patio picks up all the right notes from the flagstone used for the fireplace and outdoor kitchen.
The outdoor kitchen is complete with a smoker, a grill and a griddle surface, too. Would you like pancakes after your morning swim? The kitchen backsplash includes electrical outlets for blenders and the like. Would you like smoothies after your afternoon swim? What you can’t see in these photos is the refrigerator; it’s tucked under the bar, behind the comfy chairs. Would you like cocktails after your evening swim?
Topping off the cabana is a rich pine tongue-&-groove ceiling with exposed beams stained in dark chocolate. The roof is shingled to match the home. Lanterns on the dark chocolate posts at each corner and recessed lights in the ceiling, along with a ceiling fan, provide the necessary comforts. Family members and guests now have a shady outdoor room where they can escape the sun’s UV rays after swimming. And with a television in the midst of all this, no one will have to choose between enjoying the family barbeque and the watching the big game. There is always going to be a big game.
