An elevated outdoor space can always benefit from a built-in kitchen. From state-of-the-art grill setups to outdoor pizza ovens and anything in between, outdoor kitchens are the perfect way to create a seamless flow from your home to the outdoors. If you enjoy entertaining guests, an outdoor kitchen will make your yard the go-to spot for gatherings. Maybe you want to use your outdoor space more often or just enjoy your meals while watching the sunset. Either way, everyone can enjoy the ease and fun of an outdoor kitchen. If you’ve been interested in adding an outdoor kitchen to your Nashville home, but aren’t sure where to start, here are some of our favorite Nashville outdoor kitchen ideas.
Built-In Grill Station
No outdoor space is complete without a state-of-the-art grill. Whether you love cooking up juicy steaks for your friends all summer, or grilling chicken now and then, a grill is a kitchen staple for any home. When it comes to an outdoor kitchen, you can use a built-in grill area as the focal point of your space. Since they are built in, these grill stations are completely customizable. You can have one built right into your patio with counter space attached for food prep and cooking. If your space is big enough, you can create a designated area for your built-in grill and cooking space, creating a separation between your outdoor kitchen and dining area. Consider building a grill and entertainment area with wood paneling for a more rustic and cozy look.
If you love entertaining, then building an outdoor bar in your backyard feels like a no-brainer. What better way to enjoy a warm Nashville night than creating cocktails for you and your friends to enjoy? Outdoor bars can feature built-in sinks for easy clean-up. You can also add an outdoor fridge to keep everything cool. Why not include a wine fridge as well? To save space, you can even install fridge drawers under the bar to keep all of your beers frosty and ready to serve. The best part about the fridge drawers is they’re hidden and won’t take away from the beauty of your outdoor bar.
If you’ve ever made homemade pizza in the summer, then you know how hot and uncomfortable your kitchen can get. Instead of cranking up your indoor oven, consider installing an outdoor pizza oven. There’s no better way to enjoy a DIY pizza night with the kids, and you can take advantage of some extra outdoor family time. Pizza ovens make for great centerpieces in outdoor kitchens, and you can build them using brick or stones that blend into existing patio features you may have.
