Modern Outdoor Kitchens

More than a basic barbecue setup, an outdoor kitchen is an open-air cooking area which includes enough amenities to eliminate trips in and out of the house. This luxury allows friends and families to enjoy more time outdoors and makes life a lot more convenient when trying to entertain. Outdoor kitchens exist as extensions of a living space and include some or all of the following: a grill with side burners, sink, refrigerator, wet bar, pizza oven or fireplace, cabinetry, and lighting. You can hire a professional to install a large built-in with custom details or DIY it with modular mobile pieces—just be cautious, extravagant contracted projects can cost tens of thousands of dollars. Cooking and eating outdoors means very little clean-up, too! Some cookerys can practically be hosed down after use. Here are some impressive outside canteens to get inspired by:
