With the right outdoor kitchen plan and appliances, you can transform any ordinary yard into the perfect venue for hanging out with family and friends. If you'd like to get in on the action, check out the following outdoor kitchen plans to see what the options are and how they'd suit your needs and tastes.
Extension of the Home
Some homeowners opt to set up an outdoor kitchen on a patio or even build a pergola over the area to create an outdoor kitchen that's essentially an extension of the home. The spot may include a bar or dining room table, refrigerator, cooler, outdoor sink, counters, and/or a grill. A TV is also typically included in the set-up for entertainment purposes.
If you want an open-air kitchen, your deck is likely the best place to build it. You can build a pizza oven, put in a grill, add counters for food prep, and build an area to hold firewood or charcoal. Add a table and some chairs, benches, or even a sofa to the area, and you're all set.
Flexible Outdoor Kitchen Set-up
Would you like a flexible outdoor kitchen set-up, so you can also use the area for other purposes? If so, consider one of the following ideas:
- Build outdoor storage cabinets with a cement slab on top. The set-up can be used as a buffet for a crowd when the need arises. This can be an ideal option for a small patio.
- Build (or purchase) a bar cart and set it up on the patio, deck, or even the front yard whenever you want to have some drinks and snacks with friends. You may not be able to prepare a full meal, but there'll be no shortage of good food.
- Start by building the outdoor pizza oven or an outdoor fireplace. You don't need other furnishings to enjoy homemade pizza or roasted marshmallows. In fact, you can even spread a blanket on the grass to sit and eat if there aren't enough tables and chairs for everyone.
