How to Create your Dream Outdoor Kitchen

Posted by Deanna Wiegand on Thu, Dec 11, 2014 @ 08:20 PM

As we are becoming well aware, outdoor kitchens are becoming more and more popular.

 “Outdoor kitchens have exploded in popularity because they provide an enjoyable space to cook and share food in the beauty of a garden environment,”

says J. Gieo Peonsoneault, host and producer for The New American Landscape Channel, an online resource for the green industry. While your kitchen can be tailored to your budget and tastes, here are four things for anyone to consider while planning your dream outdoor cooking space. 

Click here for many great outdoor kitchen ideas.

1. Evaluate your space and design a layout that works with your area and your budget.

2.  Decide which materials you would like to use for your floor, raised structure and counter tops.

3.  Think about your appliances, and what you would like to incorporate into your kitchen.

4.  Overhead roof type of structure, such as a pergola or a pavilion.

The first thing to consider is the space you are working with and the most efficient layout for your space. You should also consider your indoor space while planning this. You want your kitchen to be visually appealing from the inside as well at outside. Your budget and preferences also need to be taken into account at this stage, but you need to think about how the layout can be the most efficient for your needs and wants.

Complete Yard Transformation: Paver patio and walkway

Posted by Amanda Bahler on Mon, Aug 06, 2012 @ 12:50 PM

"The professionalism and thoroughness with which our job was done was most impressive beginning with the sales/marketing and design team to the workers on site."

The first time this customer came into our design center for an appointment we knew we were going to have a blast. We clicked right away and the process began. They wanted to redo not only their front yard but their back yard too. Through many many questions from an engineer to lauging at his many jokes, the design came together beautifully! After many appointments and picking out the perfect pavers, the plans were set and ready to go!

The Versatility of an Outdoor Bar

Posted by Brad Wiegand on Mon, Jan 23, 2012 @ 04:16 PM

Do I have to have a bar if I install an outdoor kitchen?  This question comes to me often as I am designing a patio for a homeowner.  The short answer is 'no'.  As we design outdoor kitchens, we begin by looking at the homeowner's lifestyle.  That in of itself may determine whether a bar or serving counter is applicable to the situation.  If the grill is a place of solitude after a long day's work, or just another appliance to get a meal prepared, then a bar probably is not necessary.

How do I plan my Outdoor Kitchen?

Posted by Brad Wiegand on Tue, Nov 15, 2011 @ 12:27 PM

Ahhh, food.  This is one of my favorite topics. I love to eat... really, just about anything. But, I also enjoy the time of preparing the scrumptious food item(s).  Although I love my indoor kitchen, there really isn't anything better than grilling that favorite steak or kabob with a few friends on a beautiful summer evening.
