Planning to spend more time outdoors this summer? An outdoor kitchen can help you accomplish your goal! Step outside and enjoy the warm summer air, all while cooking some delicious food for you and your loved ones. Take a look at how you can start planning your ideal outdoor kitchen.

Do Your Research

There are many types of outdoor kitchens you can build. Determining the best type for your home will depend on things like your budget, lifestyle, and space available. A basic outdoor kitchen can include an outdoor grill and possibly a store-bought outdoor bar. You can also opt for a fully-functional outdoor kitchen. No matter what type of outdoor kitchen you choose, be sure to do your research first. 


Assess Your Space

Next, assess your outdoor space. If you have ample space, you’ll want to consider keeping the outdoor kitchen close to the house. You don’t want to end up walking far from your indoor kitchen to your outdoor one. Most properties have less available outdoor space, therefore limiting the options of where to put the outdoor kitchen. However, regardless of how much outdoor space you have, make sure to build your outdoor kitchen in an area that makes the most sense for you. 


Permanent vs. Portable Outdoor Kitchen?

Do you want a permanent outdoor kitchen, or would you prefer a portable one? If you’re a renter or plan on moving out of your house in the near future, you may want to consider building a kitchen that can move with you. If you don’t see yourself moving anytime soon, a permanent outdoor kitchen may be your best option. Determine the optimal place to set up your outdoor kitchen and start designing. 


Set a Budget

With every project, you should set a budget and stick to it. Essential materials, appliances, and labor can easily eat away at your budget. You can also end up paying money for unexpected expenses such as permits, designers, tools, and professional help for things like electricity and plumbing. However much you think you need for your outdoor kitchen, be sure to budget some additional money for those unexpected expenses.
