The Basic Steps: Designing Your Outdoor Kitchen

If you enjoy outdoor cooking and entertaining, you should consider investing in an outdoor kitchen. The outdoor living areas that people are designing today not only add value to your home, but also allows you to spend more time with your family and friends. When designed efficiently (with outdoor kitchen kits and modular outdoor kitchen cabinets) an outdoor kitchen will bring your entertaining to an entirely new level. Designing an outdoor kitchen requires more than just plopping down a grill and a table and chairs.

When designed correctly, a kitchen design will allow you to enjoy your guests without running back and forth to your indoor kitchen. Consider the whole outdoor kitchen experience; entertaining, grilling and relaxing. Design your outdoor kitchen with stations in mind. Think about the space you have and divide it among the Entertainment Station, the Cooking Station, and the Prep Station. Shown within each station are some popular Summerset products.

Entertainment Station

Having an entertainment station allows your guests to “help themselves” while you are doing the grilling. When designed with a Beverage Center, an Ice Chest or a Refrigerator, your guests will always have a cold beverage at easy reach. There’s no refilling the plastic ice bucket in 90-degree weather, or reaching into a bucket for a “floating” drink.

Cooking Station

The cooking station is the hub of the outdoor kitchen, and where the magic really happens. Spend the extra money on the grill and get the best your budget will allow. Whether you are entertaining 6-16 people, our Summerset grills can accommodate your crowd. The grills have heat zones so you can cook with 2 zones for smaller parties or all four zones for larger groups. Don’t forget about the side burners. The side burner allows you to easily finish your cooking outside. With the most efficient design you will become a one stop cooking station. Our newest addition to the Summerset products is The Oven. The Oven is constructed of high quality stainless steel and serves as an all purpose oven. Not only does it cook pizza, it cooks chicken and cookies!

Prep Station

Your prep station should be next to your cooking station so you can conveniently move your food to your grill. Use a sink to rinse off your vegetables, a trash drawer and cutting board/chute to “chop and toss”, and extra storage to store your utensils and platters.
