How To Build An Outdoor Kitchen

September 28, 2021

In addition to adding property value and increasing your investment in the property, outdoor kitchens are a great addition to every home. They offer an ambient environment to wine and dine. Here are must-have amenities for the kitchen.


While you have numerous appliance options, one must-have appliance is a grill. Fortunately, there are different grill variants in the market that you can purchase depending on your budget and needs. However, we recommend a built-in grill. They easily slide and blend in with the work area and offer better use of space.

While they may be a significant initial investment, built-in grills offer durability, and they offer you value for your money. With numerous grill options, you can be confident you’ll find one which meets your kitchen needs.

Side Burner

Who wouldn’t like a kitchen equipped for cooking different meals? A side burner is a must-have appliance as it makes it convenient to cook different dishes simultaneously, saving time. You don’t need to keep running into the indoor kitchen for your cooking needs with a side burner. These are available in one and two-fitted burners.

Counter Space

Like any other kitchen, you will need a steady and spacious work area for preparing meals and organizing food before serving. Thus, counter space is an essential aspect of any outdoor kitchen.

Fortunately, there is a vast array of countertop selections available. If you are facing budgetary constraints, ceramic tile counter space is affordable and highly functional too. However, a granite countertop is aesthetically appealing and handles damage better.

There are numerous types of outdoor refrigerators available to hold refreshing drinks as you cook during the summer. Besides storing drinks, you can also store your dessert in the fridge until needed.

You can also add a wine cooler as wine is a fragile beverage that needs cold conditions to maintain its exquisite taste. You can buy a small wine cooler to maintain its quality and make it more accessible.

Fireplace or Fire Pit

An outdoor kitchen should be well equipped for both seasons. Having a fireplace or pit ensures your guests remain comfortable and warm even during the cold season. You can choose to have the fire area customized to match the décor.

Both fireplaces and fire pits will enhance the look of your kitchen. However, they are different structures, and thus, they will offer different experiences. To decide which you need between the two, you should consider how you intend to use the area. A fireplace is ideal when sitting directly in front of it, while a firepit is ideal if you gather around. Thus, a fire pit is considered more interactive as it resembles a campfire.

Trash Bin

An often-overlooked appliance is a trash bin. You know how fast trash can accumulate if you have hosted an outdoor party or a barbecue. Although the steak won’t create waste, your sides will. Chopping vegetables will need a trash bin to dump the waste, not to mention a place to put beer cans/bottles and paper plates, if used. A trash bin a necessity.
