Types of Outdoor Kitchen Designs

When designing your outdoor kitchen, you will want to consider the type of kitchen you will want. When designing your outdoor kitchen consider what type of cooking style you prefer. For example do you want to grill and have a barbecue, or do you want to cook oven brick pizzas? Do you want a combination of cooking options? When you want to have an outdoor kitchen think about its purpose and what appliances or cookware you will need. This will aid you when designing the outdoor cooking area. When you consider what types of cooking features you want as part of your outdoor kitchen, it will also help you to determine if you will need electrical, gas, propane or other utilities installed during construction. Another consideration is if you will want to add a plumbing system. If you want a sink for washing or easier access to running water, you will need the plumbing system added as well.

Outdoor Kitchen Layout & Location

After determining what features you want as part of your outdoor kitchen, next you will need to determine if you have the space for everything you want. At times the backyard space isn’t big enough for all of the features you want for your outdoor kitchen. If so, you will need to get very creative during the designing of the outdoor kitchen. You may need to downsize your outdoor kitchen design ore renovate more of your landscape.

Consider Climate when Designing Outdoor Kitchen

In San Jose, CA, we enjoy warm to hot summers and warm winters that may include mild overnight frosts. When designing your outdoor kitchen, consider your local climate. If you don’t have a roof or cover, consider having one built over your outdoor kitchen. Exterior ceiling fans provide a refreshing breeze, and the cover will keep the unrelenting sun off you and your outdoor kitchen. In our climate it is often recommended to have the outdoor kitchen protected from the elements and structures are often built to ensure you can enjoy your outdoor kitchen all year long.
