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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Now that you've chosen your design, you need to choose your appliances! A grill or smoker is a necessity. You'll need to decide if you want a gas or charcoal grill, and what type fits best in your budget. Grills can range from very affordable to very expensive. Other kitchen ideas include sinks, refrigerators, extra burners and more. Some people opt to put in a refrigerator beneath their prep area. Adding extra gas burners can help you prepare a well-rounded meal. Whether or not you need burners depends on how much you anticipate using your outdoor kitchen.
You love cooking out of doors and do it as often as possible. Now you have decided that it is time to have your own outdoor kitchen. But where do you start? Just how do you find those great ideas?
