5 Simple & Affordable Tips for a DIY Outdoor Kitchen

5 Simple & Affordable Tips for a DIY Outdoor Kitchen

DIY Outdoor Kitchen

While most of us would love a sleek, state-of-the-art outdoor kitchen, the price tag may not be doable for all. That doesn’t mean we can’t cook and eat al fresco! Below are five tips for a do-it-yourself version.

Grill upgrade.

Skip the outdoor oven or stove for a nice grill. To up the versatility of your grill, consider getting a skillet top or griddle. Pancakes, anyone?

Prep space.

To make it possible to prepare food in your outdoor kitchen, set up a prep station with an outdoor butcher’s block or table. If you can, place this station near your grill for ease of use.

Consider installing a sink.

If you already have a hose hooked up near your outdoor eating area, it may not cost that much to have a sink installed so you can wash up easy. Hire a professional to get a quote.

Add seating.

A large outdoor dining table or small cafe table will turn your DIY kitchen into an eat-in space. Looking for a space to hang? A loveseat and a few comfortable chairs will do the trick. Add an umbrella overhead for sunny days.

Aesthetics matter.

To have an outdoor kitchen that looks, well, like an outdoor kitchen, it’s important to tie your aesthetics together. Installing that outdoor butcher’s block? Choose a wood stain that matches your outdoor eating table. Section off the space with potted plants or a slate patio floor so the area is clearly defined. String lights overhead for a magical vibe once the sun sets.
