Keep in mind though that brick isn’t the only option for building outdoor cabinetry.  In fact, you can easily use wood, especially if covered.   Your countertops can be similar to your indoor countertops… my point is that your outdoor kitchen need not take on a rustic Mediterranean style, which you see so often.  With some planning, you can create a modern or contemporary or chalet style outdoor living space that will look fabulous as part of your overall property design.

An outdoor kitchen would be incomplete without at least a dining area.  There are exceptions such as small balconies, but otherwise, if you built a full outdoor kitchen, you should incorporate a dining table.  This makes for full outdoor living space.

Another important element, in my view, is a dining area adjacent to the kitchen space.  If you have just a grill and then you eat inside, it’s not really an outdoor kitchen space.  But when you add a dining area, you’ve created a full outdoor dining and kitchen space.

This rustic outdoor kitchen is ready for summertime barbecues. To create this spacious entertaining spot, the designers used flagstone for the patio and red cedar to create the pergola above. The kitchen offers a large island, gas grill, side burner, refrigerator and bar seating. On the other side of the patio guests can gather around a cozy fire pit and seating area.

Grill: The grill is the heart of the outdoor kitchen.  While you can have an oven, stove and wood-fired oven, usually the grill is the primary cooking appliance.  You could argue a grill is a necessity for an outdoor kitchen.

This fully equipped outdoor kitchen is separate from the rest of the living space, allowing the two areas to be utilized entirely on their own. Greg Schaumburg of Hursthouse Landscape Architects & Contractors says an outdoor kitchen is most efficient when it’s zoned into logical uses. According to Greg, your cook space should have plenty of prep space, room to set down utensils and stage ingredients, and a comfortable buffer from the seating island to keep guests protected from the heat.

Whenever possible, I think it’s a good idea that your outdoor space be created in a similar style to the home exterior and interior.  For instance, if you have a chalet style home, continue the chalet design to the outdoor living space.  Same with modern, rustic, cottage, craftsman, etc.

The compact grilling station, encased in synthetic limestone, features temperature zones, stainless steel cooking grates and an infrared rotisserie burner. To make summer entertaining even more enjoyable, an awning with a natural cedar underside was added to keep the deck and outdoor kitchen shaded and cool.

Designer Trent Hultgren created an extension of the home’s interior by leaving the entire outdoor space covered. Floor-to-ceiling draperies provide shade, privacy and protection from the wind, rain and cold. Outdoor cooking is simple and convenient with a fully equipped kitchen and bar right next to the dining area.

An outdoor kitchen is a cooking space outside.  It’s more than a solitary grill.  It requires additional elements that a kitchen has such as counterspace, refrigerator, cabinetry, etc.

This outdoor space boasts plenty of Texas charm and was actually created to resemble an open-range saloon. To shade the existing concrete patio and add Southern flair, the designers created a cedar arbor in a fan-shaped pattern. The kitchen and grill area were built with block and dry stack stone. Adjacent to the kitchen, there’s even a fire pit and additional seating for extra guest entertainment. Design by Dean Marsico and Derek Stearns

Counterspace:  I think some counterspace is necessary for any grill area to be considered an outdoor kitchen.  The materials used to create the counters can vary and include rock, brick, wood and stainless steel.  Brick and rock are very popular for creating the base in which the grill is placed and counter tops placed on to of.

I also love outdoor living rooms with patio sectionals and lounge chairs.  Of course having a kitchen, dining area and living room area requires a huge patio space, which is not always possible.

When redesigning this tiny backyard, Jamie Durie used his recent trip to Egypt as inspiration. First he focused on ensuring the homeowners received the functional outdoor kitchen and dining space they wanted. Then he transformed the remainder of the space into a tropical, Cairo-inspired oasis with a water feature, Egyptian papyrus and palm trees and an earthy, desert-style color palette.

With breathtaking countryside views and a brand-new accompanying outdoor room, these homeowners now have even more reason to be outside. To make use of the existing white and cream limestone patio, the designers built a barbecue unit and a two-level L-shaped grill area. For a Texas-style touch and extra shade, a hand-scraped cedar and stained pergola covers the entire space. Design by Dean Marsico and Derek Stearns
