Building a full backyard kitchen or just an outdoor kitchenette can transform your outdoor space into the perfect place for entertainment and relaxation. The modern conveniences that make life more comfortable inside your home can be elegantly integrated into your outdoor entertaining area. From a custom outdoor grill, to a built-in barbeque or pizza oven, outdoor kitchens can be as beautiful, and functional, as the kitchen inside your home.
An outdoor kitchen can be much more than a patio table and a barbecue grill. With all of the options available today, planning the right design for your home can be a challenge. Do you want a stone outdoor kitchen, or a brick one? Do you want a prefab outdoor kitchen or one that’s been custom built for your home? A professional landscape designer can blend all your ideas and preferences into a design that will make outdoor cooking practical and enjoyable.
Once you have an idea of the look and purpose of your outdoor kitchen, it’s time to choose the accessories, appliances and construction materials you want to integrate into your backyard kitchen design.
The complete outdoor kitchen island is also an option for modern outdoor kitchen designs. Either custom built or prefabricated, they can be designed to enhance and blend with the overall style of your home. Wood, brick, or weather-resistant polymer are typically the materials used to construct a backyard kitchen.
There are hundreds of other appliances and accessories that can make your kitchen more functional and personal from outdoor refrigerators to outdoor pizza ovens. At a clients request we can also match outdoor kitchen appliances to the ones inside the home. While we do install every type of barbeque component, some of the products we commonly work with are Napoleon, Lynx Grills, Wolf, and Broil King to name a few.
Another element that perfectly complements a backyard kitchen is an outdoor kitchen bar, complete with wine storage, kitchen cabinets, and beer taps, is essential for outdoor entertaining. Smokers, like The Big Green Egg and infrared sizzlers are also becoming popular options.
For whatever purpose, a carefully planned outdoor kitchen landscape design will add value to your home while also giving you an outdoor entertaining space you’ll be happy to spend your days in.
The most important appliance in your kitchen landscape design is the outdoor kitchen grill. There are many models of kitchen grill available today. Also, there are a few other things to consider when picking the best grill for your home:
- Choose a grill with an ample amount of cooking space to meet your everyday needs.
- If you plan to cook full meals, select a grill with side burners. Some models offer one or two burners, or you may choose a full-sized outdoor stove top.
- Consider other grill options that may add convenience to your outdoor entertaining, like storage cabinets and electric ignitions.
