The best outdoor kitchen design will depend on how much space you have, where you live, and what you plan to use it for. Here are some ideas to consider when designing an outdoor kitchen.

But what about storage options? Here’s how to incorporate them into your outdoor kitchen design.

If you have limited space, you might need to think about using a freestanding island instead of a built-in one. This allows you to add more countertop space without sacrificing any storage. You can also choose between a freestanding sink or a built-in sink. A freestanding sink is easier to clean than a built-in sink, so it’s better for people who cook often.

Add Shelving

Adding shelves to an outdoor kitchen design will help you organize your food items and keep them out of sight. It’s also a good idea to use clear glass containers rather than opaque ones. Clear glass lets you see what’s inside and makes it easy to find things when you’re not looking at the container directly.

Create an Island

If you want to add storage space to your outdoor kitchen, consider adding an island. An island adds extra countertop space and gives you more room to cook and eat. You can choose between a freestanding island or one that attaches to the side of your grill.

Build a Bar

A bar is a great addition to any outdoor kitchen. It’s also a great place to store food and drinks. You can build a bar out of wood, metal, or concrete. Choose a material based on how much weight you expect to put on it.

Install a Wine Rack

If you plan on having guests over often, consider installing a wine rack. This will allow you to easily access bottles without opening them.

    David and his team were excellent and helping me install a bbq onto a work surface.I was so impressed with their work that they have completely 3 other jobs for me (brickwork, glass alignment and guttering) and I have asked them to quote on another job. The team are hard working and would highly recommend them.

    David and the team were exceptional. We were thrilled with our new outdoor kitchen. They certainly gave us the WOW factor. Very professional, hard working and always left the job spotlessly clean. We can strongly recommend All about Outdoor Living.

    We couldn't be happier with our installation by All About Outdoor Living. We had a very particular vision for a really awkward space that was executed perfectly. From the initial design consultation to the final finishing touches, the entire process was seamless and stress-free.Bill who led the groundworks was great to work with. With lots of challenges due to root systems, mature trees/shrubs, drainage issues and uneven ground, Bill and his team worked meticulously to lay porcelain patios, paths and turf, providing solutions for everything.David, Dale and Dean bought the whole space to life with a stunning, bespoke wooden pergola that is a structural statement in itself. And they fabricated an angled kitchen on site with water and power supply, to boldly frame and define a space where nothing is level or convenient. They were a joy to have around, and gave all the attention to detail you could want.The quality of workmanship is outstanding, and the materials used are not only durable but also visually stunning. Our family and friends are truly impressed with the results and we would recommend them in an instant. Cooking and entertaining outdoors has never been this enjoyable. Thank you, All About Outdoor Living, for creating our dream outdoor kitchen space.

    If you need anything from design to help with getting your bbq fixed, this is the place to go. I can't recommend them highly enough. David is not only incredibly knowledgeable about everything Bbq's but also really helpful and professional. Don't go anywhere else!!!

    An excellent experience from start to finish. David is very experienced in terms of site position, planning, seeing potential problems and finding good cost effective solutions. Dale and Dean were a pleasure to have working on site. As a family, we love our outdoor kitchen and cannot recommend it enough. The blinds and pivoting roof makes it a useable space for all seasons. I wouldn’thesitate to recommend David and his team to anyone.

    I think sometimes, projects like this can be so overwhelming. Although, with David’s advice and wealth of knowledge, he was able to advise and help to design our outdoor kitchen which catered for all our needs and requests and all within our budget too. Thank you!

    All about outdoor living came to see me and produced some amazing ideas, after getting the quotation and drawings I was pleasantly surprised it was in my budget. The workmen who carried out the job were clean and hard working, I can highly recommend this company for doing what they say they will do. Thank you David for overseeing the project and making the whole process comfortable for me.
