If you’ve been reading our blogs for a while, then you know that we’re all about creating a complete outdoor experience.

We are not just designing, installing, and maintaining beautiful spaces (which is important) but we’re looking to give you a functional space that enhances your life.

That’s why an outdoor kitchen is so much more than just food! Having a well-designed outdoor kitchen will allow you to interact with your backyard and generate the social interaction it’s meant to have.

Creating an Outdoor Kitchen

When it comes to your outdoor kitchen there are endless possibilities; we’ll walk you through some of our important aspects today to help you get started.

Good design is paramount to creating a focal point as well as a practical space for cooking. Here are our top three items to consider when planning your outdoor kitchen.

1. Location is Key

Cooking, especially when it’s a BBQ, is inherently social and something people will naturally gravitate toward.

When deciding where to put your outdoor kitchen, you’ll want to choose a spot that doesn’t make the cook feel like they’re left out but also respects the space.

Generally, the closer BBQs or kitchens are to the home, the more they’ll get used.

2. Determine Priorities

This is an exciting addition to any home, and it can be easy to get carried away, but depending on the space you have chosen a simplistic approach may work better for your space.

What will you use your outdoor kitchen for? BBQs, pizza, a wok oven?

You can mix in different elements, but it’s best to find a balance between appliances and sitting/standing space. Choose the appliances that you’ll regularly use and that will instantly make the space more refined.

3. Compliment Your Home

Remember, this is an addition to your existing home so there should be some flow between the indoor and outdoor.

Matching the architecture is key for a polished look and can be achieved by incorporating similar materials from inside the home and around the garden.

Using paint colors from inside the home on your cabinetry, or simply by keeping the same design structure.
