Outdoor Kitchen Islands
The three most common outdoor kitchen islands are: L-shaped island, straight island and U-shaped island. The L-shaped island includes a separate space for preparing and grilling food. The straight island is set up mainly for cooking and not entertaining large groups of guests. It typically includes a sink, a small space for food prep and a grill. The U shaped island splits the outdoor kitchen into specific sections: preparing, cooking, and eating. Don’t let your imagination stop here, depending on your needs and available space you can customize your outdoor kitchen and make it unique. Other factors to consider when designing your outdoor kitchen are the location of the grill and direction of the wind as you do not want the smoke carried towards the house. Patios and decks are ideal locations because they provide a good foundation.
