Whether you are building a home for the first time or planning renovations to achieve your dream home, Eakman Construction is the design and construction company that will help bring your vision to life. When building your dream outdoor kitchen, there are many important factors that you must consider before breaking ground. Homeowners on a budget must maximize practicality. An outdoor kitchen can look absolutely fabulous, but if it is difficult to maneuver and awkwardly designed, then your money has been wasted, and you’re left with an outdoor space that is less than you desired.
For these reasons, we at Eakman Construction have compiled some practical outdoor kitchen ideas for residents of the Kirkland, Washington, area that will help you navigate your next project effortlessly.
Develop a Plan
Of course, before beginning any build or renovations, you should first formulate a plan. Begin by deciding what type of space you are looking to achieve. Whether you are looking for a small patio area with a grill and store-bought countertop or a grand, fully functional outdoor kitchen with all the bells and whistles, you need a set budget. Knowing your budget before you begin will give you an idea of exactly what you will be able to achieve when your outdoor kitchen is complete.
Once you have found the perfect space and created a reasonable budget for what you are wanting to spend on the project, you should then contact a reliable and experienced construction team such as Eakman Construction. With our help, there is no added stress. We will work with you during every step of the process to ensure that your outdoor kitchen is exactly how you imagined
Make the Most of Your Space
Next, with your individual budget in mind, our company will work with you to maximize the space that you have chosen to build your outdoor kitchen and in a way that is as practical as possible.
Even if your outdoor space is rather small, you can still have an outdoor kitchen that is both stunning and functional. So long as you have a grill, countertop, and comfortable seating, your outdoor kitchen will still be a success. When on a budget, choose design features that are simple yet elegant, such as a wooden pergola rather than an expensive add-on connected to your home. Additionally, when exploring seating options, instead of choosing custom bars and built-ins, opt for more budget-friendly tables and chairs that can be endlessly rearranged and customized with your evolving tastes.
Choose Practical Appliances and Materials
It doesn’t take very much to create an incredible outdoor kitchen. What it really comes down to is maintaining practicality while keeping in line with your budget. Therefore, by purchasing stainless steel appliances and sturdy building materials that will withstand the elements, maintenance costs and time will be minimized, allowing you to spend more time enjoying your space.
