11 Outdoor Kitchen Ideas in 2022

When you dream about the perfect outdoor kitchen, what is the first idea that comes to mind? Is it the way the kitchen will look or maybe what you’re going to create in that space? We’ve got all kinds of outdoor kitchen ideas & inspiration to match your lifestyle and personality.

1. Powder Coated Kitchens

Powder coat finishes can come in all kinds of colours and even mimic a natural wood grain finish The powder coating provides added protection from the elements while providing design options. Powder coating also creates a virtually maintenance-free outdoor kitchen which means more time enjoying your space.

2. Coloured Outdoor Kitchens

Add a splash colour to your palette and space. Make sure the manufactured cabinets are outdoor rated and UV-resistant to hold up against the elements. With almost every colour of the rainbow to choose from, there is something for everyone.

3. Stainless Steel Kitchens

Stainless steel is highly durable and still very on trend. There are many options to choose from such as brushed, shiny or black. One thing you must consider when thinking about finishing your kitchen with stainless steel is location. If your kitchen is located close to a pool, you may be annoyed by splash marks or water spots and rust. This is why it is also important to use a marine 304 or 316L grade stainless steel.

4. Landscape Design/Build Kitchens

Perhaps you think the task of building an outdoor kitchen is daunting. The great thing about using a professional landscape designer is, this is what they do. They have heard and seen it all and are ready to help you pick out the perfect location and components depending on your lifestyle and how you want to entertain. Both outdoor kitchen designs in the space include Urban Bonfire, and Danver Outdoor Kitchens.

5. Pizza Oven in Your Backyard

I think we can all agree that everyone LOVES pizza. There is no better way to entertain than baking fresh hot pizza in your own backyard. Don’t just dream about being a Paisano, do it! Pizza ovens range in looks from super modern to rustic brick ovens. They also range in fuel sources from gas, propane, pellet, electric and wood. The look you choose and fuel source depends on what you are comfortable with but the styles and choices are endless. Remember, pizza ovens aren’t just for baking pizza’s. If you buy the right oven, you can also sear a steak, make a brisket or bake an apple pie. 

6. Foodie Outdoor Kitchens

The foodie outdoor kitchen is stocked with all the components and accessories to make ANY meal you could imagine. Loaded to the hilt, the foodie kitchen needs a few different grilling options such as a Kamado Cooker, a gas grill head and maybe even a pizza oven. No foodie kitchen would be complete without a built-in sink for prep and cleanup as well as a refrigerator for food and drink storage. This kitchen is complete with a hood fan and mounted heaters for the colder months. Divine!

7. A Modular Kitchen

Outdoor living manufacturers have made building the perfect outdoor kitchen absolutely foolproof for the average DIY/handyman. It’s as easy as picking out your components, leveling the area you want the kitchen and pouring a concrete pad or laying stone. Take all the components, screw them together, drop in the grill head, Kamado cooker or pellet grill and finish with a durable counter-top. Some kitchens are so easy they can be installed within a day. The list of components to choose from are endless, such as: refrigerators, kegerators, sinks, dishwashers, side burners, garbage/recycle containers and more….

8. Beer/Wine Outdoor Kitchens

Can you imagine a simple but beautiful outdoor bar with a kegerator and/or wine fridge & cocktail centre? Having a fully stocked cocktail centre with ice and cold drinks makes it easy to cool down on a hot sunny day. Ahhhhh.

9. Multi-function Outdoor Space

Perhaps you want an outdoor area specifically for drinks and storage to fit into an unused space. Imagine how convenient this bar area would make entertaining. Family game nights outside under the stars would make for an unforgettable experience.

10. The PitMaster Dream Outdoor Kitchen

This kitchen is all about performance and durability. If you consider grilling an art, then you need top equipment to get the job done. This type of barbecue kitchen would have competition style cookers. Maybe a charcoal Kamado cooker as well as a drum smoker. Aesthetics aren’t as important as what rolls off your grills. Ribs cooked low and slow over a period of hours would probably require a beer fridge for the odd ale. Cheers! 

11. Roof-top Patio

Just because you live high in the sky, that doesn’t mean you can’t have the perfect outdoor grilling area. Sometimes it takes a little more leg work to figure out how to get the components up, but roof-top patios are created all the time and the view makes it all worth while.
