If you want to evoke the feeling that you're at a resort overlooking the ocean, for instance, a thatched roof sheltering your outdoor kitchen, complete with decorative lighting and bamboo accents, can help convey a relaxed atmosphere.
Homeowners looking to blur the line between indoors and out may prefer to make the outdoor kitchen an extension of the indoors, incorporating high-style, weather-resistant pieces into the decor (rugs, loungers, a dining table or TV) to create a bona fide outdoor living space that's as comfortable as the inside, but with the added perk of fresh air.
Many outdoor chefs simply want their outdoor kitchen space to make the most of the great outdoors. Basics—like a grill, outdoor refrigeration, seating and room to entertain or breathe the fresh air—hold the keys to success.
To incorporate these features efficiently, you'll need to be aware of traffic patterns. Leave plenty of room for foot traffic around food prep areas, and make sure children's play areas aren't close to the grill.
