outdoor kitchen

An outdoor kitchen is a great way to enjoy your backyard. If you are planning family cookouts and neighborhood barbeques, this is a great way to start with the tools you need. Whether you want a kitchen with all the amenities or you want a little set up around your grill and a place to eat, we have some of our top tips on how to create an outdoor kitchen.

How Will You Use Your Kitchen?

At the beginning of any project, it’s important to ask yourself what you are looking for and how you will use it. Are you planning big parties or small family dinners? Will you use your outdoor space three times a week or once a month? What amenities do you need and what are your key items?

Cooking Appliances

  • Stoves
  • Outdoor Oven
  • Grill
  • Side Burners
  • Pizza Oven
  • Smoker

Kitchen Amenities

  • Coolers
  • Refrigerators
  • Sink
  • Lighting
  • Dishwasher
  • Kitchen Island
  • Counters
  • Bars
  • Stools
  • Tables
  • Fans
  • Décor

There are many items you can include in your outdoor kitchen so before you begin planning your floorplan, really think about what you need to avoid being overwhelmed by the range of options.

Kitchen Materials

Building outside, you will need to think about things such as the weather and sunlight. Light-colored counters will not hold heat such as dark counters will so you will want the lighter option to keep surfaces cool. In the rain, treated wood, stainless steel, and plastic furniture and materials will be the best weather-resistant choices.

How will you use your next kitchen? There are so many items to think about and choose from with your outdoor kitchen but no matter what, the result will be a good one. Start planning and reach out to professional craftspeople to schedule estimates and discuss their pricing for home improvement services. With their help and your ideas, see how you can transform your backyard in no time.
