When the weather's this lovely, I find myself exceedingly jealous of people who have grills and can cook outside. But I'm even more jealous of people who have kitchens like these, with doors and even walls that can be peeled back to create an entire kitchen that's gloriously open to the outdoors.

The house pictured above, a lovely remodeled Victorian in Cape Town, has a kitchen that opens up to an internal courtyard. You can see more of this home on House and Leisure.

Although this kitchen from Desire to Inspire doesn't connect to an expansive backyard, the architects have cleverly achieved the same indoor/outdoor effect with a little patio, where folding doors allow the whole kitchen to become an outdoor space.

This stunning kitchen from New Zealand Design Blog has walls that completely retract, uniting it with the backyard beyond.

You don't need to have a huge kitchen, or a huge outdoor space, to make this idea work, as evidenced by this lovely space from House Beautiful.

This kitchen from Location18 offers the option of dining indoors or out.

Here's a lovely idea from Houzz: an outdoor bar that connects to the kitchen via a folding window.

And finally, a kitchen from My Domaine whose wall of folding doors allows it to become one with the outdoors. Are you jealous yet?
