There are several options when planning your outdoor kitchen. The most common design styles include the basic island, a \"U\" shaped island and an \"L\" shaped island. What you put into your kitchen island is up to you. Some outdoor kitchen ideas for the basic island would be to include a grill, a sink and a little work space. This is adequate for occasional light cooking. A \"U\" shaped island may have room for a grill, a sink, some storage and some work space. Because of the compact shape, it would fit in a small yard and allow you to visit with guests while you are cooking. \"L\" shaped islands tend to be larger, giving you a lot more room for food preparation. A grill could be located on the short side of the \"L\" while the longer side may contain a sink, a refrigerator, storage and other accessories.
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. 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.
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. Finally, when you are going through your outdoor kitchen ideas, don't forget seating and dining room for your family and friends. It is more fun to cook if you can join in the fun when you are entertaining. Choose seating that is comfortable and positioned for dining. Bar stools may work well if you have a high counter top. Another option is to locate an outdoor dining table nearby. If you live in an area where it gets colder in winter, you may want to include a fireplace of some sort to keep everyone warm while you enjoy your outdoor kitchen. Likewise if you have hot summers, you may want to include either umbrellas or some other covering to shade the area. If you get a lot of rain, be sure you have a waterproof grill cover to protect your investment.
