In the past, outdoor dining mainly consisted of someone manning the grill with trips back and forth between the main house and the patio with plates of food to be grilled. Today the outdoor kitchen has become more sophisticated and convenient and can even be enjoyed all year round. To design an outdoor kitchen you must have the following:
1) A Concept
Decide whether you want an open, fully enclosed or partially enclosed outdoor kitchen. With an open- air concept you can build the kitchen assembly onto the already existing patio or deck or configure a courtyard within the backyard. Partially enclosed options can be a screened-in patio or deck top pavilion with wide open views using large windows, skylights or retractable awnings. Pergolas using a wall on one side of the house with wood beams are most popular.
2) A Layout
L-shaped, U-shaped or floating depends on the location for the power outlets, ventilation systems, if required and drains for your sink if one is included in your layout.
3) A Design
There are two options: prefabricated or customized. There are off- the- rack kitchen assemblies that you can choose from a grill and several cabinets up to an all-inclusive food preparation station. Thee units are stainless steel and can be built in stone or brick surrounds. In a custom built kitchen, you can have cabinets that look like wood and upscale appliances such as terracotta pizza oven, ice maker or warming drawer.
You can create a tranquil space with a wood burning fireplace, cozy cushions and fragrant votives. There are countless options. Create your outdoor kitchen.
