Outdoor Kitchen Ideas

Dining outside in the open is fun but what’s more intriguing is bringing the whole kitchen outside. Cooking meals in the open is so enjoyable that you would never want to get back to your indoor kitchen. Set up a kitchen in your backyard or on your roof, work on little details, and design a gorgeous sight to make your cooking experience more pleasant. Check out the following amazing outdoor kitchen ideas and get inspired to do something similar in your backyard or on your roof top.

1.  Blue Cabinetry:

Check this gorgeous kitchen in the open. Cabinets with Nantucket-style doors and the Caesarstone kitchen top give away the perfect water-like impression. Do something similar to your outdoor kitchen if you like. It would look attractive if you paint the ceiling with Benjamin Moore’s Blue Springs.

2.  Salvaged Materials:

This is a simple old school style. The use of salvaged and earthy colors will give the kitchen some maturity. You can use antique styled tables and chairs for that too. Buy some old-fashioned pots and vases to decorate your outdoor kitchen.

3.  Stained Oak:

Build the ceiling of your kitchen using stained oak to give your kitchen a very warm and cosy look. Use a drop-down metal gate to keep your appliances safe in case of rain.

This stunning kitchen idea is a mixture of earth and sky colors. Arrange wicker chairs around a sandstone table for seating. The Fogazzo 1050 pizza oven is just the perfect addition to this kitchen design.

Make your open kitchen’s cabinets using old cypress shutters. Outdoor dining and cooking are all about natural environment and surroundings, and these cabinets would give your kitchen a closer to nature feeling.

6.  Barstool Seating:

An outdoor kitchen is incomplete without a bar area. Set up a backsplash with a counter in your kitchen to serve as a bar area. While you cook and serve, your guests can sit around the bar and entertain themselves.

7.  Built-in Beverage Cooler:

I love this idea. Simply ask the designer to convert one of your sinks into a built-in beverage cooler with a teak top. This way, you can not only keep your drinks cool but you can also save a lot of space.

8.  Garden Walkway:

An outdoor kitchen without a dining area is incomplete. Design a beautiful walkway that leads to your kitchen’s dining area. Arranging flowerbeds on both sides of the walkway will further beautify it.

9.  Cosy Fireplace:

To give a homey feeling to your kitchen, build up a fireplace just like this. This is perfect if you like old-fashioned architecture. Set up an array of potted plants just above the fireplace.

10.  Wine Racks:

Add wine racks like this in your outdoor kitchen as a beverage center. You can also keep a keg tapper nearby.

If you like your dining area to be elegant, set up a two-tiered iron chandelier just above the dining table. A Zinc-topped table and antique chairs are sure to complement the flowery and green surroundings.

12.  Recycles Fountain in an Outdoor Kitchen:

Set up a fountain like this in a corner or against a dull painted wall. Ask your designer to make this fountain using lavabo and a horse trough. You can also add plants above and next to the fountain.

13.  Soft Spot for Sitting:

There should be a comfortable place to lounge next to your outdoor kitchen where yours guests can sit and relax while you cook. Use a curtain rod to hang a cushion. Use colorful cushions and pillows to give a warm look to your lounge. You can set up this lounge next to the fireplace.

14.  Rustic Accents:

Small details and decorations matter a lot when it comes to designing an outdoor kitchen. Put a lamp made from a barn vent on top of a shelf above the icemaker or freezer. You can also use rope handles on the cabinetry.

15.  Table Setting:

This table setting is one of my favorites. Arrange Vietri’s Paprika dinner plates on the Dining table. Simple flower vases with fresh or artificial flowers can be arranged on the tables too.

16.  Hidden Storage:

If you prefer stone shelves, table tops, counter tops, this outdoor kitchen design is what you need. Use “super strong” paving blocks to build up a terrace. Top the island with bluestone. To give the architecture a lighter look, use stainless steel for the base of the island.
