Whatever you decide on for your personal kitchen, you're sure to enjoy many hours cooking and entertaining. Your family and friends will enjoy your efforts and you'll be the favorite host once they discover your beautiful kitchen.
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.
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.
Once you are armed with your list then make a budget considering carefully how much you can afford to pay for that outdoor kitchen. Remember that most solutions run from between $3000.00 and $30,000.00 and sometimes more.
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.
Before you actually begin building, you will probably want at least a rough blueprint of what your kitchen design will look like and you might even want to chalk out or tape out the actual dimensions in the area where your kitchen will go. This will give you an opportunity to get a feel of how your kitchen will look and how functional it will be.
Many communities have a 'Parade of Homes' where the local builders demonstrate their skills in building homes. Walking through these show homes will give you a good feel of what different ideas and concepts look like in actual settings. You can also see many different styles of kitchens and ideas on display in home improvement centers and cabinet makers' showrooms. Pictures are great to find kitchen ideas, but experiencing real kitchens gives you a better feel for the actual finished concept.
