The kitchen is the most used area of a home where families make meals and spend quality time. Now that the weather is warmer, you may find yourself wishing you could entertain outdoors. Here are a few outdoor kitchen ideas so that you can spend more time outside.
Create an Outdoor Kitchen With an Industrial Look
Does an industrial look appeal to you? Choose a concrete countertop for an industrial-style outdoor kitchen. Pair the countertop with a stainless steel sink and grill.
Choose an Upcycled Theme
Another popular outdoor kitchen idea is an upcycled theme. Look for a kitchen cabinet at a thrift store or salvage yard. The piece doesn’t need to be perfect; you can repaint or stain it. Find an old bookshelf that you can repurpose for more storage. Using upcycled furniture for an outdoor kitchen is simple, affordable, and functional.
Build an Island on Wheels
Maybe you’re having a difficult time deciding where to build an outdoor kitchen. Use an upcycled kitchen island or build one and install wheels to create a mobile food preparation station. If you prefer flexibility and versatility, a mobile kitchen may be best for you.
Rustic Outdoor Kitchen
Building a rustic kitchen outside can be simple and inexpensive. Look online or ask businesses if they have pallets for sale. You may be able to find pallets for free. Using just a few basic tools, you can build a frame to house your grill and a sink.
Add a Bar and TV
You may already have a grilling area set up outside, and maybe even an outdoor sink. Upgrade your deck or patio to the next level by adding a bar area with a TV. This area should be covered, so add an awning or roof extension. If you enjoy watching sports or the news while cooking, this is a worthwhile project.
