Why You Need A Professional Outdoor Kitchen Company When Building Your Barbecue Island

Corroded Outdoor Kitchen Structure

Building A Barbecue Island The Wrong Way!

In this article, we’ll be covering some important topics about outdoor kitchen design & construction materials. We’ll also show you some reference photos that support using a professional outdoor kitchen contractor over an amateur do-it-yourselfer. We’re writing this article to warn homeowners of the risks of using sub-par building materials and construction methods. We recommend that you don’t cut corners to save money when it comes to your outdoor kitchen area.

We’ve included some prime examples photos of what happens when your builder uses the wrong materials when constructing your custom barbecue island structure. This gentleman thought he purchased a home with a beautiful little starter outdoor kitchen, what he found, in reality, was something he would more than likely have to pay someone to remove from his property. Here at Elegant Outdoor Kitchens, we build outdoor kitchens that look amazing and are structurally sound. Which is especially important in our neck of the woods; we have to endure hurricanes that are devastatingly powerful and destructive. That’s the Elegant Outdoor Kitchens difference! Take it from us; you don’t want to find yourself in this precarious outdoor kitchen position.

Here you’ll see the damage that’s caused by natural weathering and overexposure. The original builder also used a material that wasn’t suited for outdoor kitchen construction. Sure, this custom outdoor kitchen lasted about five years, but it could have lasted 15 – 20 years. That is if it was built using the proper materials. Protect your outdoor kitchen investment and make sure your contractor is using the appropriate construction materials for the job! That’s one thing you won’t have to worry about when you choose the professionals here at Elegant Outdoor Kitchen of Fort Myers, Florida. We’re Southwest Florida’s outdoor living specialists.

Elegant Outdoor Kitchens – Starting Your Outdoor Kitchen Construction Project Guide.

Custom Outdoor Kitchen plans can be as simple or complex as you desire. The one physical factor that keeps many of us from designing the ultimate outdoor living area is space. Chances are that you have a limited amount space or physical area to work with. Unless your last name is Rockefeller, then you just got it like that. The other factor tends to be budget.

There are many practical design layouts that you can implement. Most of these layouts stem from a few basic design configurations. The base layout configurations consist of:

  • Straight or Linear
  • U-Shape
  • L-Shape
  • Split Level
  • ¾ Square

While this list is anything but extensive, almost every custom outdoor kitchen layout is based off one of these basic models. Depending on the area you have, we’re certain that you can convey to your EOK Designer which type of design configuration you want through the base styles mentioned.

The best part of designing an outdoor kitchen is the customization. BBQ Island designs are customized with everything from backsplashes, raised bar areas (split level), dining areas, even fire features built right into the counter-top. The list is quite endless when it comes to structural customizations. This section of the brochure will prepare you to talk the talk with your designer.

 

Aesthetic Finish Materials

When working with Elegant Outdoor Kitchens, you’re able to choose the unique finishing materials for your brand-new custom outdoor kitchen. When it comes to your finishing material options, the material choices are quite extensive. It’s important to understand that inferior materials and craftsmanship will deteriorate quickly in an outdoor environment.

Countertops

During the layout and design phase you will have already decided on how much counter space you have to work with. Countertops are important, as you will need them to prepare food, serve food, and ultimately use as a space to set stuff down. The material you choose for your countertop is an important one. You should consider that it will be exposed to outdoor elements, it can’t stain or chip easily, and it should match your siding. Luckily there are many options when it comes to countertops. The best choices are going to be materials like natural stone, concrete, or an outdoor tile. It’s best to speak with an Elegant Outdoor Kitchens representative before purchasing any materials for your countertop.

 

Facing Finish

The siding finish is what you and your guests will immediately notice about your outdoor kitchen. That’s why this finish should be considered carefully. It’s always a good idea to choose a finish that matches your overall outdoor environment and your countertops. Stone veneer, also known as stacked stone is an upscale and popular outdoor kitchen finish. When choosing a veneer, you must consider your climate and the weather it will be exposed to. What you will have to choose from will depend on your environment. Speak with your Elegant Outdoor Kitchens representative about the material options that are available and suitable for your climate. They’ll be happy to showcase some of the beautiful materials you can use for your outdoor kitchen.

 

Built-In Grills & Accessories

The best part of designing your outdoor kitchen is choosing from the amazing cooking & grilling components that are available today. The choices are vast and it helps to have an experienced outdoor kitchen consultant to help you realize your outdoor cooking needs. You must consider many factors when choosing your grill, stainless steel accessories, and secondary cooking components. Things to keep in mind are your budget and the space you have in your outdoor kitchen design.

 

The Built-In Grill

Let’s face it, an outdoor kitchen isn’t a kitchen without a professional grill. This will be your go-to cooking component for your outdoor living area. It’s important to make sure you choose a grill that’s durable, high performance, and will withstand the test of time. The last thing you want to do is build an outdoor kitchen with cut-out dimensions for a grill that will only last two years. What If the manufacturer goes out of business? Our recommendation is that you buy a professional style grill that will last you between ten to fifteen years. Plus, the performance you’ll get from a professional grill is unmatched when compared to some of the lower end manufacturers you find at places like Home Depot.

Outdoor Kitchen Accessories

From Pizza Ovens to Access Doors, Drawers, and more. Your outdoor kitchen can be outfitted with even more custom cooking components than your interior kitchen. There are very few limits to cooking outdoors. Speak with one of our Elegant Outdoor Kitchens designers to choose your custom accessories and additional cooking components.

Designing and outdoor kitchen for your home is an exciting time. It’s important that you choose a company that will work closely with you to plan, design, and manufacture the outdoor kitchen that you’ve always wanted. Here at Elegant Outdoor Kitchens we pride ourselves on communication and customer service & support. Building your perfect outdoor kitchen means that we must first understand what you want in an outdoor living area. Give us a call or send us an inquiry through the form we’ve included below.
