How to Build an Amazing Outdoor Kitchen Using Patio Pavers
If you have dreamed of using patio pavers to design your own gourmet kitchen, now you can. At Go Pavers, our designers can take your wish list and the paving stones you select then create a 2D or 3D model of your new kitchen. This allows you to see what your new space will look like and make changes before ever breaking ground. You can be as creative as you like and incorporate all of your must haves during the design process.
If you know that you want an outdoor kitchen but aren’t sure what should be included, here are some ideas to get you started.
Select your paving stones. Browse through our online collection of pavers and compare the paving stones price across various manufacturers. We carry multiple brands so that you can select the color, texture, and price that meets your design goals while fitting within your budget.
Consider your footprint. Buy stakes at the hardware store and use them to mark off the area of your yard that you want to become your outdoor kitchen. Move them around until you can visualize the size of space that you need. Next, measure the area where your patio pavers will go. This will give you an idea of how many features you can fit into your new kitchen.
Plumbing. If you want your outdoor space to function as well as an indoor one, you need to have kitchen plumbing. Those that love to cook and entertain outdoors should have a sink installed for easy access to water and for cleaning up.
Electrical. By wiring your outdoor kitchen, you can use it no matter what time of day it is. This allows for lighting and for important features like a refrigerator. When you have an under the counter refrigerator, you can fill it up in the morning with the food you will be cooking during the party. That way the chef never has to go into the house but can stay in the middle of the action all day.
Build a grilling station. Your outdoor kitchen would not be complete without a built in grilling station. This can be made of the same patio pavers that are used for the flooring, or you can select pavers in a complimentary shade. The grill will be tucked away so that when people look over they will see your beautiful pavers instead of the backside of the barbeque.
Design a counter for eating. When building your grilling station, we can create a long or curved counter using the paving stones. Purchase some durable bar stools so that you can have an outdoor space to hangout and eat that seats everyone in the family. It can be as large or as small as you like which makes it perfect for when you throw an outdoor party. If you have a pool, this becomes an excellent spot for kids to eat when wet from playing all day.
These are only a few of the ways that you can use patio pavers to create your dream outdoor kitchen. For more inspiration look through our online pavers collection or call to speak with one of our designers.
