Outdoor kitchen plans enable us to design and built our outdoor kitchen accurately. The first question of planning outdoor kitchen is, of course the location. Actually, when our outdoor kitchen is entirely self-sufficient with running water, we can put it anywhere. However, it is better if we locate it as close to our indoor kitchen as possible so we can run to the sink or fridge quickly. Then, we have to also consider prevailing winds, sun protection, overhead power lines and the trees as well as choose the stable soil and wind blowing.
Outdoor kitchen plans also can be achieved by considering the water we use, whether it will be hot and cold or just cold. A plan for waste water is also important to be considered. We need to have a qualified plumber assess and check the local building codes before. The next consideration is about electrical. We usually use it to operate some electronic stuff like blender, oven, microwave or refrigerator. For these cases we will need outlets above the counter and below the counter. It is always best to install switches for any outlets so that the units can be turned off without pulling them out to be unplugged.
Besides, counter tops are also important to be considered in implementing outdoor kitchen plans. We can try to pick a counter material that will handle a hot pot and resist stains and grease. We have to also make sure to specify a solid brass faucet using ceramic valves or a solid stainless steel one. In addition, we should also think about ventilation to manage smoke, soot, and food particles from the grill. We may need to think about a hood with a power ventilation system but consider the noise level of fans. Besides, it is better for us to not to mix and match appliances, since each manufacturer uses specific stainless whose differences can be noticeable when side by side.
