How the Correct Measurements Affect Your Outdoor Kitchen Design
26th December, 2020
When designing your DIY outdoor kitchen, getting the measurements right is critical. The size of your area, the length of your countertop and which appliances you’re wanting to include in your design will all come into play when you’re determining the measurements and fit of your kitchen.
Here are some design considerations to keep in mind when designing your outdoor kitchen.
Grills come in all shapes and sizes, so there’s bound to be a grill that fits perfectly into your outdoor kitchen space to allow for functional and practical outdoor grilling. Outdoor kitchens also act as entertaining spaces, so the placement of the grill is also something you should put some thought into to allow for practicality. Installing your BBQ in an open space of your backyard is a great way to ensure you’re able to successfully double your outdoor kitchen as just that, a kitchen, as well as an entertainment hub.
Another benefit of an outdoor kitchen is that you can avoid having to repeatedly travel in and out of the house to cook while also entertaining your guests. If you have walls in your outdoor kitchen, a great idea is to install wall cabinets that give you added storage options without taking up extra space. Make sure the measurements of your storage units allow you to effectively and efficiently store all your utensils, as well as make the best use of blank space in your outdoor kitchen area.
The countertop is your main workspace in an outdoor kitchen. Free up the space on both sides of the grill, sinks and cooktops so you have more room to play with. This also allows for a more seamless cooking process because you can place raw ingredients on one side and finished meals on the other side.
