Designing Your Outdoor Kitchen
At Ambassador Construction, we work closely with clients to design and construct an outdoor kitchen that fits your needs perfectly. There are so many choices to make: Built-in sink? Countertop material? BBQ vs. smoker? Gas or electric? Seating – how much and where and what type?
We have more than 10 years of experience creating outdoor kitchen plans that meet our clients’ lifestyles and budgets – from the simple to the elaborate. No matter the size of your outdoor kitchen project, there are a few things to consider:
- The first thing to decide, and the feature around which your outdoor kitchen will most likely be built, is the grill and BBQ equipment. This is the place to splurge – go for high-grade stainless steel (we recommend 304-grade) that will withstand rust and frequent outdoor use. Consider the depth and overall area of the grill surface, and make sure it will accommodate the number of people you plan to entertain regularly.
- Next up is the kitchen island. This is what really brings the outdoor kitchen space up from a stand-alone grill. There is a wide range of materials to choose from – tile, stainless steel, stone, granite, and many more. A typical island provides, at minimum, counter space for food prep, but can be customized to include many other features:
- Built-in fridge
- Warming drawers
- Wine cooler
- And much more
- Finally, you need to decide if your outdoor kitchen will be open-air or more sheltered. Erecting an awning or other covering over your outdoor kitchen will provide some shelter and protect it for many years to come.
