Outdoor Kitchen DesignYour outdoor kitchen addition should be well thought out. When building an outdoor kitchen, you want to consider the size of your patio, deck, or space where the outdoor kitchen will be located. It is important to make sure that the outdoor kitchen footprint is proportional to your space, providing enough room to walk around and congregate.
The three most common outdoor kitchen configurations are Straight, L-Shape, and U-Shape.
Straight Island – S-SeriesStraight outdoor grill stations or islands are perfect for small spaces. They can be built on patio’s perimeter or along an existing exterior wall. You can also add a detached, parallel bar or refreshment station.
L-Shape Bar-Island – L-SeriesL-Shape outdoor kitchen/bar-islands, similar to a Straight island can work well in small to medium size spaces and can be located on the perimeter of a patio. L-Shape layouts are a great way to add convenient prep and bar space
U-Shape Kitchen – U-SeriesU-Shape outdoor kitchens are the ultimate in prepping, cooking, and entertaining outside. A U-Shape requires a medium to large space. The U-Shape also offers convenience of all appliances, utilities and components in one place.
Additionally, you will want to consider an aesthetic look that will complement your existing landscape from home. Our kitchens come in several timeless stone profiles: Ledge Stack, Dry Stack, and Random Rock, all with a number of different color options.
Outdoor Kitchen ConstructionIt is important to consider the environmental stress and climate when building an outdoor kitchen structure to house your grill, appliances, and storage. Using materials engineered for the outdoors is critical to long-term durability and enjoyment.
