Building an Outdoor Kitchen

So you want to build an outdoor kitchen? Good news! Your options are almost limitless. Outdoor kitchens have become not only an enjoyable outdoor space but add real value to your property. Another great reason to consider installing an outdoor kitchen is that you can invest as much or as little as you want. A simple structure for a grill can be attractive, useful, and cost less than $3,000USD. Of course, on the high-end, the sky is the limit. I have helped spec out installations of up to a quarter-million.

The first step when building an outdoor kitchen is to decide on a budget. From there you should select your grill. There are so many to choose from these days. For an installation primarily focused on a gas grill, the grill will be half to a quarter of the overall budget. Selecting your grill first will let you determine everything else you want as a part of your outdoor kitchen.
