Outdoor Kitchens

Outdoor Kitchens Aliso Viejo, CA There are several great perks of having an outdoor kitchen that the property owner can enjoy. One is the sheer enjoyment of sharing sumptuous meals and desserts amid a cool outdoor breeze. Another is the added functionality to the landscape with the addition of such amenity. Lastly, the property increases its market value since outdoor kitchens are considered as add-ons and not as usual features.

Outdoor Kitchen Ideas

The beauty of having a kitchen right smack in your yard is that you can prepare mouth-watering dishes, drinks, and desserts and dine al fresco style with family and friends. But just having a plain kitchen won’t make the entire experience as fun and effortless, so it’s best to have all the accessories and add-ons.

For example, the kitchen could be placed beside the patio or pool area, so you can easily transfer the cooked meals or call your hungry family and guests over to the kitchen dining area. Meanwhile, your kitchen should have all the features and accessories such as countertops (can be metallic or granite/marble), grills and side burners, sink, pizza oven, personalized cabinetry, and refrigerator/ice maker. You can build a roofed-kitchen or go full au natural with an open type design. Your kitchen can be modern or Mediterranean or any theme that you want – it all depends on how you’ll convey your design needs to your contractor.

Outdoor Kitchen Designs

As mentioned, you have the freedom to have your outdoor kitchen built however you need it to be. You may choose between the typical layouts for outdoor kitchens, such as L-shape, island, U-shape/horseshoe, galley/corridor, G-shape, and peninsula. The layout will depend greatly on your budget, the available space in your yard, and the exact location where the kitchen will be placed.

Meanwhile, the outdoor kitchen island design is generally classified into two types: prebuilt and custom-built. Pre-built outdoor kitchens are highly popular among property owners because they cost cheaper, easier to install, and already have the basic amenities that a property owner need. On the other hand, some property owners prefer customized kitchen islands since they can be design to exact specifications, which means that the look and actual amenities and features can be determined by the owner. And while they cost higher than their pre-fabricated counterparts, they offer greater satisfaction to people who want a personalized appeal and functionalities.

Outdoor Kitchen Plans

When it comes to plans for outdoor kitchens, you may find a lot of samples online. The good thing about this is that you won’t have to have headaches thinking how the kitchen should look like or what amenities should be included – all you need to do is download the desired plan and have the specifications followed by the contractor. However, since these are plans made for other property owners, the problem is customization. In this case, it’s best to hire professionals to do the outdoor kitchen plan for you.
