Elisa Wynn. Kitchen Ideas. October 11th , 2018.
Just remember there are a lot of sources out there where you can get your ideas from and don't be afraid to throw in a few ideas of your own. After all, you want your kitchen to be functional, unique and a fun place to do all your outdoor cooking.
Believe it or not the best place to start is with you and your family. Make a list of those things that you feel you will most need in your outdoor kitchen and then list those things that you think will be beneficial. For example, most families agree a good grill is a must at backyard, but do also want to make breads, pies and pizza out of doors? If so then you are going to want a wood burning oven as well. You might even want to include an open fire pit for guests to gather around, a dining set and of course cabinets and counter tops.
If you decide on an island, there are more decisions to make. You can have one custom made for you, or you can use a pre-fabricated island. Customizing your outdoor kitchen can allow you to go more upscale with granite, slate or other unique materials. Pre-fabricated islands are less expensive and come in a variety of configurations and finishes. Be sure to choose materials that will hold up well in your climate.
You are next going to need to decide if you are going to leave the building of your outdoor kitchen in the hands of experts or if this is going to be a do it yourself project. Once these decisions are made and you know roughly what features you can and cannot afford then it time for you to start looking at outdoor kitchen designs and plans in order to get a few ideas about how you want your own outdoor kitchen to look.
You can begin by looking through magazines dedicated to homes, home decorating, architecture, and fine living. Start a scrap book by clipping photos you like, or just one aspect of a kitchen you find appealing. Don't be afraid to save pictures of even small design ideas, such as: cabinet hardware you like, backsplash accent ideas, or special cabinet detailing. It's these little items that can truly customize your kitchen and make it your own. It won't take long before you have a good idea of exactly what features you would like in your kitchen.
There are several options when planning your outdoor kitchen. The most common design styles include the basic island, a \"U\" shaped island and an \"L\" shaped island. What you put into your kitchen island is up to you. Some outdoor kitchen ideas for the basic island would be to include a grill, a sink and a little work space. This is adequate for occasional light cooking. A \"U\" shaped island may have room for a grill, a sink, some storage and some work space. Because of the compact shape, it would fit in a small yard and allow you to visit with guests while you are cooking. \"L\" shaped islands tend to be larger, giving you a lot more room for food preparation. A grill could be located on the short side of the \"L\" while the longer side may contain a sink, a refrigerator, storage and other accessories.
Don't forget the lighting! Outdoor kitchen ideas for lighting include ambiance lighting with soft white or colored bulbs, solar lighting and LED lighting that can give you the brightness you may need to cook after the sun goes down.
