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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
If you are remodeling your old kitchen, you may be somewhat limited in the design options available to you. This may be especially true if your house is older and your kitchen space is smaller. This is where consulting with a kitchen designer can be very beneficial in helping you pull together the look that you want for your kitchen. You can show the designer your portfolio of kitchen ideas, and together you can design your dream kitchen. The designer will have the experience to steer you toward the design features that will work well together, and which ideas need to be discarded. After seeing which kitchen ideas you prefer, a good designer will introduce you to ideas that you may not have considered to compliment your basic ideas. A kitchen designer will be able to maximize the efficiency of your kitchen by creating the best layout within your existing kitchen space, or maybe rework your available space to make your kitchen more functional.
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.
