Designs for Outdoor Kitchen and Grills

Depending on the space available, you can create different types kitchens outdoors. Each design layout varies in price so just pick one that suits your budget.

  • Single Counter: This is the most affordable of the outdoor kitchen layouts. You can have a single, standalone counter with a length and width of your choice. This counter can easily be tucked into a corner and won’t take up too much space if your backyard is small.

  • L-shaped counter: While this will cost you a little more, the L-shaped counter one of the most popular layouts. It offers optimal amount of space and is economical. The layout also allows a separation between the cooking or grilling areas and food preparation space.

  • Outdoor Kitchens/Grills
  • U-shaped counter: This counter is three-sided and is very close to a fully-functioning kitchen that you have inside your home. You can add cabinet spaces, bar stools and have all the latest appliances. Our clients with large families or those who like to throw big parties prefer this design. This is a bit more expensive to construct and requires some overhead covering to add fans and lighting. This outdoor kitchen design is also very popular.

  • Split-level counter: This counter is great for those who love to entertain and throw a performance as they cook. With the addition of bar stools, a person can easily communicate with their comfortably seated guests.

  • The 3/4th Square: This layout is excellent for those who wish to utilize the space productively. A portion of this layout serves as a dining spot with bar stools for comfortable seating. There’s a separate space on the counter for grilling and food prep. This layout is a great option for those who don’t have enough space to create a separate dining area.

Unbelievable Patio design and installation. I had about 10 different companies come out and give us a quote for our patio, and nobody could touch Randy's "vision".

He won us over at the first meeting, and I could not be happier with the end result. Our patio and fire pit are amazing, and we now have the official impromptu party house of the neighborhood!
