Few activities in life are more enjoyable than indulging in a delicious meal and relaxing with great company in a pleasant atmosphere. Many of us are inclined to pay a hefty premium to dine at restaurants that create a heightened appreciation of setting through aesthetic architectural design, an incredible view, or appealing decor. At times it’s hard to put a finger on why, but dining spaces can conjure wonderful feelings and memories, as they are one of the only places in everyday life that cater to all five senses at once.

For the past several years, outdoor kitchens and dining spaces have been soaring in popularity in new residential construction and home additions, while formal dining rooms have been in rapid decline. When afternoon weather conditions are perfect, as they often are this time of year, an outdoor eat-in kitchen is the perfect place to unwind, socialize and feast with friends and family.

The built-in brick parilla protruding from a stucco wall give this patio an authentic spanish feel.

Following along the trending paradigm that homes aren’t designed just for the homeowner, that they should be designed with entertainment and hospitality in mind, these outdoor spaces provide a place where people naturally gather and enjoy themselves and each other’s company. Check out these inspiring examples of backyard dining havens, some of which are featured from Bost Custom Homes.
