Every home needs an outdoor kitchen to make the best out of its backyard. Not only are they great for entertaining in the summer months, but with certain upgrades, they can be used all year round. Check out these 7 upgrades for the ultimate outdoor kitchen to take your kitchen to the next level.


7 Upgrades for the Ultimate Outdoor Kitchen


Pizza Oven

Pizza makes everything better. If you’re a pizza lover, or you have a pizza lover in your family, you’ll definitely want to add a pizza oven to your outdoor kitchen. You can, of course, cook more than pizza in them (but honestly, why would you want to?).

Outdoor Bar and Bar Seating

An outdoor bar can really take your backyard to the next level and give it an elegant, luxurious feel. Outdoor bars pair perfectly with swimming in the summertime because you don’t have to dry off to go inside and get a drink.

Ice Maker

What better to put in your outdoor kitchen with a bar area than an ice maker so that you can have cold drinks all summer long? Having an ice maker will not only save you money on ice, but ice maker ice lasts longer than bags of ice in a cooler!

Patio Heaters

Patio heaters let you use your outdoor living space all year long. With patio heaters in your outdoor kitchen and dining area, there’s no reason that you can’t enjoy a meal outside in the cooler months (with no bugs!).

Food Prep Stations

Having an area to prep food is essential for a backyard chef. It expands your counter space for food prep and serving and makes cooking outdoors a breeze.

Entertainment Centers

If you love to entertain guests in your yard, you’ll definitely want an entertainment center in your outdoor kitchen! Whether it’s a television to watch the latest sports game, or a rockin’ music system, the options for creating the perfect entertainment space in your kitchen are endless!

Fireplace or Fire Pit


Make your outdoor kitchen cozier than ever with a fireplace or firepit. Perfect for relaxing or roasting marshmallows!
