Gas appliances require proper ventillation
Consider your four walls and ceiling (or lack thereof). If your design includes a grill or cooktop, make sure you have proper ventilation above. Lighting is another important element that may require electrical work and fixtures, which will affect their positioning.
- Task lighting
- Fans for air circulation on still days
- Indirect lighting
- Convenience outlets with GFI protection
Beyond a gas-burning or charcoal-burning grill, simple amenities such as additional countertop space, a storage cabinet and under-counter refrigeration can go a long way in improving your overall design.
Another bonus of working with a smaller outdoor kitchen space: high-end materials, when used in small quantities, aren't as much of a budget-buster. Use this opportunity to make surfaces like the countertop and base stand out with materials like flagstone, quartzite, bluestone, round stone, concrete or even granite.
- Custom tile splashes and inserts
- Create countop overhangs for breakfast bar style seating areas
- Custom built in appliances like warming drawers
