Building an Outdoor Kitchen? We Can Help

Are you looking to enhance your backyard living space and take your culinary expertise to the next level? Consider building an outdoor kitchen! A well-designed recreational area outside can expand your living space, create a great entertainment area, and also increase the value of your home.

However, the process of creating the perfect cooking space can seem overwhelming, especially if you’ve never done it before. There are several factors to consider, which can make the project seem daunting. But don’t worry; we’re here to help!

Here’s our official guide to building your dream backyard cuisine oasis.

Consider Your Space

One of the first considerations for building an outdoor kitchen is deciding where to put it. Consider the size of your backyard, the type of outdoor living space you want to create, and the amount of sunlight or shade it receives. Do you want to be near a pool or patio area or tucked away in a quiet section of your yard? Once you have an idea of where you want your new kitchen, you can begin to design the space.

The Style of Your Outdoor Kitchen

When designing this new project, consider the style you want to achieve. Do you want a modern, minimalist look or a more traditional design? The type of outdoor kitchen will depend on your personal preference and the style of your residence. For example, if your home has a Mediterranean feel, consider using materials like terra cotta tiles or stone to create a rustic feel.

Appliances & Features

You’ll want to create a plan that maximizes the available space while also catering to your entertaining style. A key consideration is the type of appliances and features you want in your kitchen. Here are some important items to think about:

  • Grill: A high-quality grill is an essential feature of any outdoor kitchen. Choosing a grill island with enough cooking surface to accommodate the types of meals you want to create is also crucial. Consider investing in a built-in grill, as it will give the area a clean look and feel.
  • Outdoor Sink: A sink is a helpful addition to any outdoor kitchen. It makes it easier to clean up dishes, rinse fruits and vegetables, and wash your hands before cooking. 
  • Beverage Stations and Fridges: Tired of having to constantly run inside your house to grab a cold drink? Outdoor beverage stations and fridges are great additions to your backyard cooking areas, as they add convenience, style, and sophistication. 
  • Outdoor Pizza Oven: With the benefits of versatility, an enjoyable outdoor cuisine experience, energy efficiency, entertaining guests, and home value, an outdoor pizza oven could be the perfect addition to your backyard.
