Start your outdoor kitchen design by making a list of must-have items. These could include a grill, sink, an island, gas cooktop, pizza oven, dining space or a bar. If you`re worried about being budget-friendly, split your list into necessities and extras and make changes as your design and budget take shape.
Your first task in planning an outdoor cabinet system is to determine the scale. Work within the size of your outdoor space, and remember that guests will need to be able to move through the space comfortably, accounting for tables, chairs and other furniture as well.
Whether you go prefab or completely custom, you may want to consult a contractor for things that include plumbing, electrical or gas lines. The location of things like a grill, appliances and a sink will make a difference in your design and budget. A contractor can help you get the most from your budget by positioning your outdoor kitchen for easy access to utilities. Also consider your four walls and ceiling (or lack thereof). If your design includes a grill or cooktop, make sure you have proper ventilation above. Lighting is another important element that may require electrical work and fixtures, which will affect their positioning.
