Outdoor Kitchens

Creative design and clever repurposing can transform a small piece of the backyard into a comfortable outdoor kitchen for open-air entertaining.

Also you need to consider what types of appliances you’d like built into your outdoor kitchen area. There are a wide variety of appliances you can go with, so consider what you believe you will get the most use out of.

Here are a few of the most popular appliances for outdoor kitchens:
Grills & Smokers:

Many people opt for a grill of some kind to be the focal point, and then add appliances around that. Realistically, if you’d like to have a kitchen outdoors, you’re going to need something to cook on. There are many different types of grills available for outdoor kitchens, so be sure to do your research before you buy.

Built-In Refrigerator:

A small built-in refrigerator is another popular choice for outdoor kitchen areas. Having water bottles, sodas, beer, or juice boxes conveniently located for your guests not only makes it easier for everyone, it also prevents them from constantly going in-and-out of your house.

Ice Maker:

If you think you’re going to need lots of ice, then it would be wise to invest in an ice maker for your outdoor kitchen. However, for design purposes, you have a couple of options you can choose from. While built-in ice makers are available, you may not have the space for one if you also install a refrigerator and/or kegerator. Alternatively, consider a portable ice maker that continually makes ice, but can be stored away when it’s no longer needed.

During the design process, keep in mind that you will need to look for “outdoor“ appliances. In most instances, the indoor version will work, but since they are not designed for outdoor use, they are less likely to last as long as they should within the elements outside.
