An outdoor kitchen expands your living space and allows you to cook, eat and entertain without having to book a reservation at a fancy restaurant in Oyster Bay, Stony Brook, or Ronkonkoma. Summertime in Long Island is the ideal time to enjoy backyard BBQ’s and grilling, and most importantly, a well designed outdoor kitchen allows for superior luxury and enjoyment even beyond the busy summer months. At the Outdoor Kitchen Factory our mission is to create the perfect backyard kitchen for your home, no matter what your style or your budget. To start planning your outdoor kitchen, here are a few things to keep in mind.

When you’re planning out your ideal outdoor kitchen keep in mind that the best outdoor kitchens are as functional as an indoor kitchen, as welcoming as a living room, and as entertaining as a family room. But, that doesn’t mean your outdoor kitchen has to be overly complicated either.

An outdoor kitchen can be as simple as a grill, table and chairs, or as elaborate as a fully outfitted kitchen complete with built-in appliances and seating. Although a simple and straightforward outdoor kitchen can be set up by a homeowner, designing a generous and powerful outdoor kitchen is best left to a professional like a concrete contractor, patio contractor or landscape designer. With so many different types of outdoor kitchens, designing the best kitchen for your family takes time to plan and may require permitting from your local municipality. The experts at the Outdoor Kitchen Factory are a great resource for learning more about your specific situation.
