Sit back, relax, and enjoy looking up designs from the list below that will perfectly entertain your urban patio or small backyard while you take a few sips of your favorite beverage. Below are some creative outdoor kitchen ideas we have collected for you.
#1. Hit By The Sun Kitchen
Don’t risk getting hit by the ultra-violet vicious sun rays by showcasing market umbrellas and casting them as the heroes of your culinary adventure while you sway your way cooking in the open air next to the clear blue sky and singing canaries overwhelmed by the green environment surrounding you from every corner.
#2. Outdoor Kitchen With Long Lifespan
Brick counters make an endurable choice for the coating material of outside kitchen counters. It can stand all the natural pressure like heavy rain, wind, and strong sunlight and thus it takes a very long time to weather out and decay. It’s a design that will last longer than you’ll expect it to yet, you’ll never get bored of it!
#3. Pergola Prop
In architecture, when designing landscape architects tend to use pergolas (the grid-shaped wooden roof-like structure) as props or a decorative element more than a functional one. You can use a pergola to mark the territory of your miniature outdoor kitchen and look stylish as ever when you cook up heavenly goodness while you have some nearest and dearest friends over.
#4. Matching Fire Pit
Matching the texture of your alfresco kitchen and the texture of your outdoor fire pit is a great outdoor kitchen idea for a bonfire party right there in your own backyard. The kitchen and fire pit ensemble never looked better as they are covered in white stone near the flamingo seats.
#5. Outdoor Kitchen With Sticks & Stones
Sticks and stones may break bones but they sure look fascinating as covering material for outdoor kitchen counters. They look harmonic to their surrounding atmosphere and that’s what makes them so great. Plus, they can be strong against natural pressure and bear the heat and cold pretty well. Cleaning them up is pretty easy too, prop up your garden hose and spray away!
#6. Outdoor Kitchen With Seating Arrangments
Let’s get out of the basic components and stretch our limitations a little farther and make this outdoor thing more comfortable and practical. Simple place under the pergola high chairs to go with the granite counter top you might want to use as a quick meal eating bar. Or you can use as a place you go to have a refreshing drink after brutal football practice with your kid in your backyard.
#7. Shape It Up!
When all else fails, make up a silhouette of a particular shape with the outdoor kitchen counters. This adds the level of playfulness and sensuality of your design by a factor of 10 and ensures getting a fascinating view from both top AND side views.
#8. Entertainment At Your Service
Entertainment is everything these days. One doesn’t go anywhere without their digital companion to keep them from getting bored when they got out to buy groceries and have to wait in line at the cash register or when they have no good view to stare at from the window when they take a cab to work in the morning. And for that reason, you should consider entertaining your patio with a small cozy out-in-the-open kitchen so that it won’t feel lonely when you spend a lot of time there cooking up meals and eating delicious platters of food on the mini sidebar.
#9. Zesty Zoning Kitchen
If you think picking out the right hardware, appliances, and countertops for your outdoor kitchen was the only thing you had to worry about, you were wrong. Choosing “The Spot” for your culinary tropical island is not something you do out of random. It needs previous logical planning based on several aspects. For example, the outdoor kitchen should be near to the dining place for food serving convenience. Also, it should be not too close to pools(if any) because water splashed may interfere with the cooking process. Moreover, it should be away from the children playground zone due to the fact that kitchens possess sharp pointy utensils and objects that are not suitable for youngsters. Finally, it should be placed away from the bedrooms in which it is rotated in the wind direction so that the cooking odor would not fill up the house and disturb the residents or neighboring parties.
#10. The More The Merrier
Counters are not just there for the view, they are there to be used as storage closets or even better, you can have those built-in garbage disposals and dishwashers. The more the merrier and the easier house chores get to be!
