Outdoor Kitchen Ideas

Print Email

Outdoor kitchens can be put together like any regular inside kitchen, but the materials need to be weather resistant. The design should also consider the climate, if you're in a high precipitation area then some sort of overhead protection would greatly increase the longevity of an outdoor kitchen. Any outside water supplies to a sink should have an easy way to shut off and completely drain for those cold nights, or for the whole winter.

Exterior cabinets are typically done by using exterior grade wood cabinets, or by building a stone structure and using stainless steel built in cabinets, and appliances.

These outdoor wood cabinets are made of marine grade plywood boxes, and solid thermal hickory doors. These cabinets are built to withstand any exterior weather. We carry these cabinets by Crestwood on our ABC Kitchen and Bath web site exterior cabinets page.

Often exterior cabinets are done by building a structure out of framing lumber, facing the wood with cement board, and then doing a stone veneer. With this method openings for stainless steel built in cabinets, and appliances are built to the size of the fixture.
