Planning Your Outdoor Kitchen

Outdoor Contractor Builder along the Eastern Shore in  Fairhope, Daphne, Spanish Fort and Mobile

Building an outdoor kitchen is an exciting time. You’re probably already envisioning all the gatherings and great food you’ll eat. And for good reason! You’re in for years of enjoyment and unforgettable memories.

Red Branch Outdoor Living can be your outdoor kitchen contractor to walk you through the process!

New research from a study by Atlas Ceramics has crowned outdoor kitchens the most in-demand kitchen trend of 2022, with over 2 million annual Google searches, 71 million views on TikTok, and more than 475,000 Instagram hashtags.

Outdoor kitchens are also on the top of the American Institute of Architects’ project trends list.

You may be asking where do I start? At Red Branch Outdoor Living we have come up with some ideas to help you with your initial planning stage.

  1. Establish your budget and determine your needs. Figure out what is most important to you so that you can be sure to include it in your costs. If you want a grill with all the bells and whistles, plan your space around that. If you want to have enough seating for a huge group of friends and family, focus on that first. If you think you will get the most use from an outdoor bar, make that your budgeting priority.
  2. Consider the views, both from the house, from the outdoor kitchen and from the neighbor’s yards and houses when you are choosing a spot.
  3. Think about positioning your kitchen to take advantage of natural sunlight and optimum shade; will it be to your advantage to position your kitchen to the north, south, east or west?
  4. Plan your kitchen so that you have easy access to existing utility lines if possible.
