4 Steps To Creating Your Outdoor Kitchen

Ideas For Outdoor Kitchens

Outdoor kitchens have become a growing trend as people seek to divide their backyard space into outdoor “rooms” that expand their daily living area. People are no longer wanting to settle for just a BBQ in the backyard. The bigger focus is on an actual outdoor kitchen that incorporates a BBQ, but functions as much more.

Here’s 4 main areas of questions you should ask yourself so you can zone in on what type of outdoor kitchen design may be right for you.

1. What are your entertaining needs?
  • How many people will you regularly entertain outdoors?
  • How often will you be using the grill?
  • Will you have large parties?
  • Will you need to have room for a bartender or caterer on a regular basis?
2. What is your equipment wish list?
  • What size grill do you plan to use?
  • What other accessories and appliances would you like to include in your design?
3.  Have you thought about the layout or configuration?
  • Do you want a single level or split-height?
  • Do you need a portion of the counter a bartop height?
  • How many people do you want the counter to accommodate at one time?
4.  Where in the yard is the best location?
  • Look at which direction the wind will primarily blow from.
  • What are the angles of the sun at the time of day you will primarily be using the outdoor kitchen
  • Will you want to allow space for cover?
