Poolside Outdoor Kitchen

A festive Ballwin, MO family throws a lot of parties, which is why an in-ground pool is perfect for them. After a couple of years of summer swim fun, they knew they wanted an outdoor kitchen to perfect their entertainment experience. They also wanted to enlarge their existing deck with a way to tie it into the outdoor kitchen.

Mosby designed and built a screened porch addition off the master bedroom, which flows into the enlarged deck and creates a perfect spot below to insert the kitchen. Stone-based columns create the "walls" of the new kitchen. The cabinets are made of a water-resistant and durable teak wood, the countertops are a black marble with a decorative inset. There's space for a Green Egg, gas grill and refrigerator. A TV mounted to the ceramic tile backwall makes this the perfect place to watch baseball.

The screenporch has become a great way for the parents to keep an eye on their kids as they play below, and they love how the deck connects to the party center below. The owners even threw a pool party for the Mosby team that worked on this project with them, and we learned firsthand just how inviting and exciting their backyard paradise really is!
