Plan the Perfect Outdoor Grilling Station


Storage space beneath or beside your grill can help to keep items you use frequently close at hand. It can also help to keep your outdoor grilling station neat and organized.


Whether you’re marinating steaks or like to keep your beverages cold, a built-in refrigerator is the perfect solution.

Prep Space

Even if you do the majority of your meal preparation indoors, you’ll appreciate some additional counter space adjacent to your grilling station for chopping, tossing, or plating.

Island Living

Just as family and friends tend to gather in the kitchen, the same holds true when grilling outdoors. Provide your friends, family, and guests with a comfortable place to sit while they keep you company, with a raised island and some outdoor bar stools.

Wet Sink 

You won’t regret adding a small wet sink to your grilling station that’s perfect for washing your hands during meal preparation, wiping up spills, or cleaning your utensils after use.

Mouthwatering Fall Grilling

Enjoy the best that fall has to offer by incorporating seasonal ingredients into your grilling menu.
