And whether you're looking to create a bona fide outdoor entertainment center, or simply expand the usefulness of your patio or deck, typically the design process starts with the main centerpiece: the grill.

Built-in grills (grills that fit into a base with counters and storage space, not unlike a kitchen island) are a popular choice. For many an outdoor cook, a quality grill and countertop space for prep work and serving are more than sufficient.

Other simple outdoor kitchen ideas include a countertop overhang for seating, eating and socializing; an umbrella to protect your investment (or the cook) from the elements; and at least one storage drawer for basics like paper towels, grill racks and grilling tools.
