Many pre-built outdoor kitchen islands come hand-in-hand with a complete barbecue station, including a grill, workspace and stovetop cooking area. Cabinets and storage areas are also typically included in these designs. If, however, you plan to construct an outdoor kitchen island, then it is important to make a list of the features that matter most to your design. If you already have a grill, then perhaps what you need is an area for food preparation. Stainless steel, granite and slate countertops all work well in an outdoor space and will hold up well in various conditions.
Storage space is generally at a premium in outdoor living spaces, so a cabinet system can make a lot of sense, especially if you plan to do a fair bit of entertaining and cooking on your patio or deck.
Lastly, you`ll just need to decide who`s installing your cabinets. You can do it yourself and save money (but you`ll need some expertise) or you can hire a contractor to install your outdoor cabinets—this will cost more but you`ll likely end up with a sturdier and longer-lasting end product.
