Outdoor kitchens come in many styles and price ranges with focal points that range from built-in grilling spaces to wood-fired brick ovens, depending on your cooking style and desires. They’re also made to stand up to the elements so there’s no need to be concerned about how they’ll fare in the sun, rain, or snow. KOB brings you some styles to help you choose the best for you.

 The most obvious perk of adding a backyard kitchen is getting more space. You’ll have more room to entertain, especially larger groups. Any low-porous material is suitable for an outside kitchen. Look for materials that are water-, corrosion- and grease-resistant. The easier your kitchen is to maintain, the more time you’ll want to spend using it.

 Proper lighting provides safety and ambiance everywhere, especially in a kitchen outside. You will use your entertainment space well into the night with appropriate lighting. Install useful lighting around prep and cooking spaces, and light any steps or walking paths for safety. 

 Make a budget and work within it. Things can easily get out of hand and end up costing more than anticipated, such as materials, appliances, and labor. 

Rustic style

 The easiest outdoor kitchen to construct yourself is one with a simple form and drop-in elements. White-washed wood and wicker storage baskets give it a timeless look without getting too fancy. And, the simple storage space below makes accessing logs for a patio bonfire a breeze. 

Food lovers

 You can have many different meals at an outdoor patio with a kitchen. For example, a popular item for an outdoor kitchen is a wood-fired pizza oven. You can have pizza nights or use it to make empanadas.

Adding a bar

A bar is a popular addition to an outdoor kitchen and you can do it in the style that best matches your house and outdoor space.
