It’s been said that Cleveland, Ohio, is a PARTY town.  With all that Cleveland has to offer from Professional sports teams, downtown Cleveland’s Theater District, it’s park systems, and our summer long Rib Cook-offs, there is always a reason to get together.  And with that comes the house that everyone congregates to partake in parties all season long.  Is your house the one in the neighborhood that always has the BBQ every weekend or holiday?  If so, maybe it is time to think about installing a Paver Patio along with an Outdoor Kitchen in your yard.

When designing your Outdoor Kitchen, the functionality of your space should be paramount to the design. Just as it inside of your home, the outside should adhere to the same concept.  You want to keep it simple but usable and have your equipment in easy reach.  You don’t want to have your stove so far away from your refrigerator that it inhibits the progression of your cooking.  You need to have appliances set up in such a way that you are not running all over the area just to prepare your meal.  The same concept holds true when planning your Outdoor Kitchen.

What you first need to think about is the size and shape of your outdoor living space. Take into consideration how many people are typically at your gatherings and what you are actually using your new entertaining space for.  Other Then you need to decide on as well:

Traffic patterns – The ebb and flow of your Outdoor Kitchen / Living Space

Mingling places – Gathering areas

Seating areas – wall seating, area for lounge chairs, bar seating

How much space to devote to your new “outdoor kitchen”

Style, function and temper of your outdoor kitchen

Lighting – both for mood and safety

Electrical line installation needed

Gas line installation needed

Outdoor Kitchen

  • Are you looking for prep space and a grill?  Perhaps a straight outdoor kitchen / grill island with seating area and a bar might best suit your needs
  • Consider making your Outdoor Kitchen an “L-shaped” area with a little more prep space and perchance a seating bar
  • If you have the space, consider doing a “U-Shaped” allowing for more prep space, seating bar, and room for more accessories
  • If you have a large enough area that you can devote to your Outdoor Kitchen, perhaps a separate cooking area with an island for prep and high top seating
  • Think about appliances and accessories you would like to have in your new outdoor kitchen.  What size grill are contemplating on installing?  Grills come in a wide variety of sizes and styles and accessories with your grill.  Perchance you are a family who loves clambakes in the fall.  You can add side burners for your bakes, or keeping your favorite pot of chili or pork and beans hot while you are grilling your favorite meats for the main course.  Are you thinking of adding a refrigerator and ice drawer?  You can also add a warming drawer to help keep foods you prepared ahead of time hot.  For those who love their libations, consider adding a kegorator to your island.  There are so many different components you can install in your new Outdoor Kitchen customizing it to your specific desires, the possibilities can seem endless.
