Think stucco or stone bases, granite counters and breakfast-bar seating—and that's in addition to fabulous built-in options including a grill, mini refrigerators and stainless steel storage cabinets or drawers.
As with the island in your kitchen, you'll need to take a few key elements into consideration before making this somewhat pricey investment. Will the outdoor island be an addition to your existing deck or patio, or will you designate a separate space entirely? Will it be open or enclosed by a roof, canopy or pergola? Next, determine the size your space can accommodate.
While budget-friendly outdoor kitchen islands consist mainly of a professional-grade grill and extra countertop space, pricier models include many amenities found on indoor islands, such as a countertop sink or burner.
