When you are planning a backyard outdoor kitchen, it is important to consider not only the way you want to use this space, but to what degree. If money and space are unlimited, it is fine to put in every possible appliance and feature under the sun. Since that is not the case for most of us, taking the time to plan properly to set priorities is necessary.
Specialty features, such as a pizza oven, can seem like great ideas. However, you should consider how much you’d use them. For example, a pizza oven is incredible as long as your family not only enjoys pizza, but will take the time to create homemade ones rather than continue the quicker route of calling for delivery or pulling a frozen one out of the freezer. If you love entertaining and the thought of serving up freshly baked pizza and other baked items sounds great to you, then a pizza oven will make a great addition to your backyard outdoor kitchen. Take this same close look at each feature you believe you want for your design and you’ll be in great shape.
That is not to say that you shouldn’t think outside the box a bit and cover a few “what ifs.” For example, what if your area suffered an extended power outage? What if you were to hold a large gathering of guests for a special occasion? What if you want more relaxation spots for your retirement years? What if your needs change? Incorporating entertainment areas, gas and wood fueled cooking appliances, and a relaxing nook into your backyard outdoor kitchen can take care of tomorrow’s contingencies.
