Outdoor kitchens save time and add convenience by eliminating the endless &back and forth to the house& so common with outside entertaining. An outdoor kitchen may be as simple as a stone-veneered barbecue grill on the back patio, while more elaborate kitchens include commercial-grade charcoal or gas grills, smokers, full-size kitchen appliances, sinks, wet bars, ceiling fans, seating areas, and plasma-screen televisions. Arrangements and styles of kitchens vary but most are designed to complement the exterior decoration of the home. Popular decorating trends for outdoor kitchens include stained concrete floors, rustic flagstone veneers, natural woodwork, and stainless-steel appliances.

Creating relaxing outdoor rooms with fireplaces or fire pits is another common theme in home landscaping. Most fireplaces and fire pits are crafted of stucco, concrete, or stone such as Oklahoma Flagstone, Austin Chalk, and Pennsylvania Bluestone. Fireplaces and pits are available as wood-burning, charcoal, or gas. Exterior fireplaces are typically upright structures similar to home fireplaces while fire pits may be sunken into the ground or built just above ground. Fire pits and fireplaces are typically surrounded by plush, comfortable weather-resistant seating and may be accented by potted plants, seasonal color beds, specimen trees, and landscape lighting.

Outdoor kitchens, fire pits, and fireplace pricing can vary depending on size and materials used. A small project may start around $3,000 and larger projects can go as high as $15,000 or more.

Things to consider

  • Browse project portfolios in magazines and on Yardhookup.com to get a sense of what outdoor kitchens, fire pits, and fireplaces cost.
  • Avoid disappointment and wasting time during contractor appointments by having a clear plan for your proposed project that aligns with your project budget. If you would like a sizable outdoor kitchen with all of the trimmings, ensure your budget could support such an expense.
  • Request a project portfolio and references from potential contractor candidates. Take time to check all references.
  • Understand any signed contracts, maintenance requirements, as well as appliance and project warranties.
