I love the look of classy outdoor kitchens! They look great and they’ll help you enjoy your summers! Try one of these DIY outdoor kitchens today!
Make it Portable
Your outdoor kitchen doesn’t have to be a permanent fixture. If you decide in a year or two that you don’t use it very often, you can toss it. Or, if you decide that you’d like to move it to the other side of the lawn, you can do that too!
Give it Cover
Whatever your outdoor kitchen ideas are, remember to give yourself some cover from rain and excessive sunshine. A gazebo is a great way to give your outdoor kitchen a rooftop.
Build a Window
Instead of building an outdoor kitchen, have you considered giving yourself access to your kitchen from the outdoors? A strategically placed window from your kitchen to the back yard can provide a great outdoor eating space.
Keep it Simple
Your outdoor kitchen space doesn’t have to be extravagant to be useful. Consider the elements you really want to have in your outdoor kitchen and find minimalistic ways to incorporate them.
Use Practical Materials
Many people immediately think “stone work” when they first start dreaming up their outdoor kitchen plans. But you can use a number of out-of-the-box materials like corrugated metal or recycled pallets to complete your project.
Cool Things Off
This outdoor kitchen has a built in ice bucket from keeping drinks cool during summer parties!
Try Some Fun Seating
Traditional bar stools are great and all. But have you sat on a swing while sipping your ice tea? This outdoor kitchen is a play place for grown ups.
DIY Concrete Counters
Some projects in your outdoor kitchen might require the assistance of paid professionals – like installing plumbing or gas lines. But DIY as many projects as you can to save on some of the cost.
Avoid The Bugs
Outdoor kitchens really benefit from things like shade, ceiling fans, and bug screens! If it’s not a particularly buggy time of year, you can roll up the screens for a bit more sunshine.
