Creating Outdoor Kitchen Bars

Things to know when considering an outdoor kitchen bar.

What are the most important factors to consider when designing an outdoor kitchen bar?

What's better than a backyard equipped with a top-of-the-line grill and plush, comfortable seating? The backyard with an outdoor kitchen bar. (Think increased entertainment capabilities.)

Like the indoor kitchen island's much-used breakfast bar, the outdoor kitchen bar provides a designated space for family members and guests alike to pull up a chair, eat a meal and stay a while. Not to mention a prime place to interact with the chef or enjoy the scenery.

As with the indoor kitchen island, the outdoor kitchen bar requires forethought on functionality in addition to aesthetics. While similar design considerations will apply (think countertop work space, single-height or double-height counters, an overhang for leg room and drawers for storage space), you'll also want to keep factors like weather resistance and durability in mind.

Perhaps the most important element of creating an outdoor kitchen bar: keeping it covered, whether via pergola, umbrella, thatched roof or overhang. This will not only help shield your investment from the elements, but it will also extend the life of your appliances, surfaces and materials.
