7 Picture Perfect Outdoor Kitchen Ideas

7 Picture Perfect Outdoor Kitchen Ideas

Outdoor kitchens are all the rage. Indulge the chef in your family (or yourself) with a custom-built outdoor kitchen for your pool area or backyard. Gone are the days when you have to run back and forth to the house to grab condiments or potato salad. Everything will be at your fingertips when you install an outdoor kitchen. Here, we present our seven best outdoor kitchen ideas.


Outdoor Kitchen Ideas for Small Spaces

People often assume that you need a lot of space to build an outdoor kitchen. This is not the case. Attractive and functional outdoor kitchens can be built in a small space with enough planning.

1. Do what you want!

The amount of space devoted to countertops, storage, and appliances is up to you. Do you want a large countertop for prepping food but do not mind a smaller-sized refrigerator? Easy enough. Outdoor kitchens in small spaces work best when they are constructed with the specific user in mind.

2. Granite Countertops? Why Not?

When putting together your strategy, keep in mind that more high-end materials can be used in a small space at a less expensive price. Flagstone, round stone, bluestone or granite are affordable for most budgets when they are not used in large areas.

3. How About A Top-of-the-Line Grill?

More expensive options are a reality with a smaller space. Choosing higher grade products, such as a larger grill, are feasible in a smaller space for the same reason high-end materials are easier on the budget. You have less space to cover so special items can be a little pricier and still not break the bank.


Outdoor Kitchen Designs with Pool

The personality of your landscape can dictate the personality of your outdoor kitchen. What type of kitchen would you choose?

4. A Rustic or Modern Feel

If your in-ground pool and deck have a rustic feel, combine it with a rustic kitchen. Model your kitchen after an 18th-century Tuscan farmhouse or place a hood over the oven with antique wood beam framing. The only limit is your own creativity.

Likewise, if you have modern touches throughout your inground poolscape, your kitchen can be constructed with streamlined countertops, unique track lighting, lots of stainless steel or other to-die-for modern accouterments.

5. Pizza, Anyone?

A pizza oven or fireplace with an attached oven is a great idea for families or young people. Swimming can make you hungry! Everyone enjoys hot fresh pizza. Working with brick, stone or other suitable materials of your choice, an oven can complement the look of your outdoor kitchen and, hey, you can even toast marshmallows.

6. Party Responsibly

There are many ways to make your outdoor kitchen and pool area more kid- and family-friendly. If you have very young children, stovetops that are hot to the touch can be put out of reach, as can cabinets containing Mommy and Daddy’s adult beverages. Did somebody say pool party? No worries! The kids are safe.

7. Use Your Outdoor Kitchen, Even When It’s Raining


Covered outdoor kitchen structures allow you to use your outdoor kitchen no matter what the weather is. Options include custom wood pavilions, thick timber, arched pergolas, etc.. Providing a cover for your appliances will also provide a protective benefit in inclement weather and covers protect from heat and damaging UV rays emitted by the sun.
