As the warmer weather rolls in and the springtime is beginning to bloom, you may want to start this year off right by hosting a party or get-together outdoors. Outdoor kitchens are an amazing location to utilize because it is big enough to host a lot of people and it keeps the mess out of your home. Kids and pets are able to run around, guests and families can watch a movie under the stars; the possibilities are endless! See what your outdoor kitchen design ideas are.

Our designers at Groff Landscape Design want to help you achieve your ideal outdoor kitchen construction. We will guide you, step-by-step, until the project is completed to your satisfaction. Once it’s finished, you will be able to sit back and relax in a space that you envisioned. Below are a few inspirational tips to help you consider what to put in your outdoor kitchen space.

Find The Right Location

First, you would want to decide where you are going to place the kitchen. As you consider all of the possible places, you’ll want to make sure that the smoke from the grill doesn’t make it back into your home. Another thing to take into consideration is if you are planning to entertain guests. You’ll want to note the foot traffic around the kitchen such as, children playing frisbee, pets, guests with drinks, and more. A grill would be a hazard if it is in the vicinity of a lot of movement, so just keep this in mind as you create your outdoor kitchen design.

Start From The Foundation

Every good project needs a good foundation, especially one as important as your outdoor kitchen. When choosing the best foundation, keep in mind the floor layout as well as the material that you will be using for your flooring. The material will have to withstand the weight of your appliances and be able to survive any weather conditions. Our team can help you choose the most durable materials to ensure your project is of the highest quality and looks gorgeous.

Appliances Are Everything

Now, comes the appliances. You may want to utilize several kitchen appliances in your outdoor space, such as a sink, refrigerator, dishwasher, and more. For this, you must measure the space that you will need for each appliance and make sure that everything will fit. Be sure to leave space around the grill for plates and tools.

Shelter and Comfort

Is your outdoor kitchen going to be for just grilling or will you have events and parties outside as well? If you plan on guests staying outside while you are grilling, you may want to consider a seating arrangement for them. There are plenty of couches and chairs that will fit the aesthetic of your home, but it’s just a matter of finding them. Maybe you want to have bean bags as well for the little ones to sit on after they are finished.

If you plan on having a game night, maybe having a flatscreen TV nearby will offer a great experience not only you, but your guests too. In any arrangement that you choose, you’ll want to make sure it is weatherproof. You can also place your kitchen underneath an awning so that you can still enjoy the outdoors, even when those April showers are pouring down.
