Outdoor Kitchen Austin


Design Ideas For Your New Kitchen

Start your outdoor kitchen design by making a list of must-have items. These could include a grill, sink, an island, gas cooktop, pizza oven, dining space or a bar.

Whether you go prefab or completely custom, you will need to consult with a contractor for things that include plumbing, electrical or gas lines. The location of things like a grill, appliances and a sink will make a difference in your design and budget. A professional contractor can help you get the most from your budget by positioning your outdoor kitchen for easy access to utilities.

Gas appliances require proper ventillation

Austin Outdoor Kitchen

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

Material choices

Outdoor Kitchen Austin

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
