Outdoor Kitchens in Seattle

An outdoor kitchen area can be as simple as a fireplace and parking spot for your Weber grill, or as complex as a myriad of water features, pathways, patios, and custom structures. It’s an extension of your indoor living area that should reflect your own unique style and taste.

Many Seattle residents want to extend the outdoor season as long as possible. There’s no better way to do so than with an outdoor kitchen, where friends, family, and neighbors will gather to eat, mingle, and celebrate. Heaters, umbrellas, rain shelters, and even smart lighting can help keep your outdoor gathering space alive and flourishing deep into the cold winter months.

Types of Outdoor Kitchens

There are many different kinds of outdoor kitchens such as:

Kitchen Kits – These are prefabricated islands that normally come with a grill and counter space. Some higher-end models will come with a freezer, refrigerator, and even a sink with running hot and cold water. The outside of these islands can be layered with tiles and stucco or stone and brick veneers.

Modular – A modular outdoor kitchen is comprised of several individual units that can be mixed and matched, depending on your requirements. Extra counter space, grills, fridges, sinks, and other amenities can be added as you see fit.

Custom Outdoor Kitchens – A custom outdoor kitchen is where the only limits are your imagination and budget. They’re built out of the highest quality materials and require a team of our custom craftspeople and skilled artisans to design and build. Wet bars, custom outdoor lighting, unique water features, or built-in pergolas are just some of the many options available.

Questions to Consider

When we help our clients design and build their dream outdoor kitchen, we put a lot of thought into the planning before we move a single shovel of dirt. We want to help you get the most out of your space which will ultimately bring you the greatest joy for your investment.

We’ll help translate your dreams into reality through our experience, attention to minute details, and hands-on management of the entire planning and construction process.

Here are a few questions you can ask yourself to help get a better idea of what you’re looking for in an outdoor kitchen:

Where will everyone be eating their food?

Do you currently have an outdoor seating area big enough to fit everyone, or will you need more tables and seats? If the guests tend to crowd around the BBQ, then perhaps a wet bar, additional counter space, and barstools will help alleviate potential crowding issues.

What kind of cooking activities are you planning?

If you’re only planning on grilling steak or hamburgers now and then, a simple BBQ grill might suffice. But if you’re planning on cooking other foods that require alternative methods of preparation such as ovens, sinks, and cutting boards, a modular or custom kitchen might work best.

How often will you use your outdoor kitchen area?

If you think you’ll be using it more than a few times every year, then it might make sense to add additional appliances and features that will make the outdoor eating experience of you and your guests more comfortable and enjoyable.

Are you planning on moving anytime soon?

If you’re currently living in your dream home and have no intention of leaving anytime soon, a more significant investment and custom outdoor kitchen might be justified. After all, you’re going to want to get the most out of your backyard kitchen area, and it makes sense to spend what’s needed to achieve that goal.
