Top Custom Outdoor Kitchen Ideas to Try in 2021

Now that winter is almost over, do you look forward to spending more time outdoors, all while playing the role of dutiful citizen and not compromising on safety? In that case, a lovely outdoor kitchen that reflects your personality adds grace to your ambiance, and amplifies convenience for both host and guests is what you need.

Outdoor kitchens eliminate the need to unending trudges in and out of the house to fetch drinks, wash up, and check on the cooking a million times. Now, what does that mean? It means that you can spend more time with your guests and entertain them better.

And the best part is that these outdoor kitchens can be customized to fit any budget —from simpler, modular kitchens for smaller plots to super-sized beauties that complete with mod cons, roof, covers, and so on.

For today’s blog, we have curated only the top trends of this year. Let’s dive into top custom outdoor kitchen ideas to try in 2021.

Add a Pizza Oven in the Backyard

Who doesn’t love pizza? Some can devour the entire thing in under 2 minutes, while some like to savor the deliciousness with a slice or two, but everyone simply loves pizza!

And to be honest, that’s why pizza ovens are not just in trend for 2021, but have always been and always will be!

Now, if you’re wondering why do I need an outdoor-exclusive pizza oven? I already have one,” well, that’s because your regular indoor oven probably just bakes pizza. On the other hand, a pizza oven’s intense heat will make the crust pop and crisp up—evoking the authentic taste and experience.

There are many options available, from rustic brick ovens to ultra-modern ones. In terms of fuel, you can choose from wood, electric, pellet, propane, and gas as well! And don’t forget: pizza ovens aren’t just for pizzas—if you find the right one, you can use it to make a brisket, bake a pie, and sear a stick.

Our favorite one is the super-popular and energy-efficient Alfa pizza oven. This oven can cook a pizza to perfection within just 10 minutes!

Add a Bespoke Drinks Section

An outdoor kitchen without a drinks section defeats the whole purpose of building one in the first place. Imagine having to go inside back and forth for drinks, ice, glasses, and so on.

Now imagine a beautiful yet straightforward outdoor bar with a kegerator or a wine fridge and a cocktail aisle. Having a fully stocked drinks section with ice and chilled drinks makes it so much easier to relax on a sunny day.

Once again, you have quite a few options to choose from. Suppose you’re looking for something simple and light on the pocket. In that case, you can incorporate our bull outdoor-rated kegerator dual tap add-on that’s made with sturdy stainless steel and allows you to pour two different kinds of beverages.

If you’re looking for something multifunctional and multi-purpose that can keep all your drinks chilled and your guests enchanted, opt for a bull premium outdoor refrigerator. This is the investment you need to make, from stainless steel and reversible door panels to digital control panels and sealed locking doors.

Transform Your Rooftop Patio

The hottest outdoor rooftop kitchen idea for 2021 is to have a well-defined section that split into different areas like a seating area for gatherings, a sun deck for lounging, and a one for food and dining. For shade, you can go all out and build a pergola right above the kitchen area and then use an umbrella for other areas. And don’t forget to add some pretty plans, play with heights, and keep the lighting heights low!

As for equipment, make sure to get everything UV-resistant, and there isn’t a bar when it comes to what you can add and what you can’t. 

Build Your Dream Modular Kitchen 

Cooking and having a meal outside is more than a simple good-weather activity. Several kinds of research have shown that houses with outdoor kitchens have a heftier real estate and resell value—it’s an investment.

Now outdoor living manufacturers have evolved to create the perfect outdoor kitchen that’s completely foolproof for the average DIY Joe. It’s tempting to do it on your own piece by piece, bit by bit, but it can be a daunting task—from taking precise measurements and optimizing the space to leveling the area and pouring a concrete pad.

Don’t worry—we’re going to take care of everything for you. The list of styles and components to choose from is endless and very much flexible to suit all budgets—a pizza oven, kegerator, sink, dishwashers, side burners, BBQ islands, drawers, cabinets, fireplace, chutes, and so much more.

Head over to our “products” section and have a look at all the versatile equipment that you can incorporate into your modular kitchen or buy as a standalone product for now!

You can entirely choose what you want and what you don’t want—if you don’t want to shell out a lot of money right now, there’s always room for upgrade. Some kitchens are so easy and convenient that they can be installed within a day! So, what are you waiting for?
