Headquartered in Lenexa, KS, Designer Outdoor Kitchens was founded in 2002 as a design/build firm specializing in quality, cutting-edge outdoor cabinetry. Today, Designer Outdoor Kitchens includes an equipment sales division which offers a variety of ultra premium outdoor appliances and electronic equipment. As a leader in the design and building of custom outdoor living spaces, D.O.K. has expanded its offerings to include; OUTDOOR bar counters, fireplaces, fire pits, (outdoor)home theaters and premium overhead structures.
Designer Outdoor Kitchens continues as the only exclusive designer and builder of custom outdoor kitchens in its marketing area. With all products being custom-made, our designs are unmatched in quality and built to provide our clients with a functional, low maintenance and luxury outdoor living space, changing the way they spend their time out-of-doors.
Designer Outdoor Kitchen’s design calls for an all-steel framing system on virtually every kitchen we build. Where others settle for exterior grade lumber and plywood, Designer Outdoor Kitchens insists on the strength and longevity of Steel. Our framing is cut and formed into walls and partitions which are stronger and lighter that traditional wood frame structures and will not twist, warp, or rot. In addition our framing technique will allow for a more detailed finish than a std. masonry structure.
Our boxing material or substrate is a concrete product which provides a strong solid surface, for bonding our exterior finishes. Designed with a much lower water absorbency rating than other similar products it is ideal for with-standing the drastic change in temperatures without affecting the integrity of cabinets finish.
Perhaps no detail of Designer Outdoor Kitchens construction says more about the overall quality than the finish work. We enlist the expertise of the finest craftsmen, who have spent years mastering their trade, to put the final finishes on each cabinet. From the facings, utilizing brick, stone stucco, or any other exterior finish to our countertops of granite, concrete or tile, our craftsmen will create a look that emulates the finished look you desire.
