This is the kitchen from the last post. There is large Green Egg, a refrig,, infrared grill and sink. The lower doors are made from reclaimed barn wood which adds a great touch to the stone cabinets. The counter top is stained concrete at both levels.


Same project with a view of the see though fireplace with dual fireboxes. The hearth is stained concrete.

A local Murfreesboro restauranteur is now enjoying his newly renovated backyard thanks to Rhonda, project designer and manager. Yes - the  pool liner is black showing off it's lagoon shape. What a sight in the evenings when the pool is lit! Pavers also cover the pool decking and uncovered patio area.

The pavilion covers a paver patio, stone see-through fireplace and kitchen. Not shown is a heated spa off the left side of the pool and  a water slide for the kids on the right!
Come back and see more picks next week!


Elegance at an Affordable Price!

Bio-fuel Fireplacesno construction or gas lines necessary! You can put them virtually anywhere. The fireplace models, both wall hanging and free standing are ventless and create beautiful real flames. The required biofuel comes in liquid or gel depending on the model and is smokeless, odorless, and clean burning. Tabletop features add a certain elegance to any room or outdoor space. A quart of fuel burns up to 5 hours and produces between 4,000 - 8,500 BTU/hr easily heating a 375 square foot room. The cost is comparable to pretreated or wood logs. Great for any outdoor living space or patio!


Tabletop Bio-fuel Fire Features... also available!

The creation of an outdoor room requires the combination of many products made by many manufacturers. Making the right choices results in an exciting outdoor space for cooking, dining, relaxing, and entertaining. In the meantime, with all the options and decisions to be made the process could be overwhelming.
Where does one begin?

First, ask yourself, “how will I use the space”? Explore magazines and the internet for ideas and preferences. What would be your ultimate dream or ideal outdoor space? Remember, projects can be done in phases. Planning big eliminates most problems later done the road.

Secondly, consider the style of your house and size/dimension of your outdoor space. This includes the geographic layout with respect to the movement of the sun, slope of the yard, drainage, and surrounding areas beyond your property. This is where your outdoor design specialist can be of great help. Solve these issues with a consult from a CREATIVE DESIGN OUTDOOR specialist. In designing your custom outdoor living space we provide a 3-D walk-through rendering to assist you in visualizing your “dream space”.

Thirdly, depending upon your style and chosen features you will need to determine type of surfaces/covering you prefer. For example, amount of grass, use of concrete, brick pavers, natural or fabricated stone, wood or composite decking, metal, and coverings (roof/pavilion, pergola, cloth sails, etc.) all need to be part of your thinking processes. In today’s market, there is an inordinate amount of options so if you can dream it, CREATIVE DESIGN OUTDOOR can design it (and build it) so you may live it today and for many tomorrows!

The growing popularity of outdoor kitchens has spurred the use of a greater variety of  top materials. Granite and ceramic tile have always been the most popular. Click for comparison.
Lately stained concrete has entered the design scene for both indoor and outdoor use. Used primarily as decorative flooring we are now witnessing the move to counter tops rivaling the solid surfaces currently being offered (as seen on HGTV).
Concrete is porous and  neutral in color thus serving as a blank canvas allowing colors and finishes limited only by your imagination. Staining requires a specific acid mix with colorant plus a sealant for increased durability. You can even embed glass, stone, bottle tops, wine bottle bottoms; just about anything!

We at Creative Design Outdoor display both a hearth (below) and pub table top made from stained concrete. Pricing varies by fabricator/installer and of course any special components. Usually cost is similar to granite.

With the nights getting cooler we can help extend your outdoor living time into the evening hours with one of our fire features.  Whether you are interested in a fireplace to nestle up to, a fire pit to roast marshmallows, or a table top bio-fuel burner to keep you warm we can meet your needs. 

I find that the fireplace is the perfect place to sit and enjoy a glass of wine while I  unwind from a long day and enjoy the cool fall evenings.  My preference is to use natural stone on the fireplace with a nice hearth to sit on while I play with the fire.
