outdoor kitchens and bars
We design outdoor kitchens to fit your needs
Your Elevate Outdoor designer or landscape architect can help you design an outdoor kitchen (or custom outdoor bar) that fits your needs and lifestyle. Whether you want to keep it pretty basic or go big by including special features, like a wood-fired oven, ice makers, a wine or beverage cooler, sound systems, or other amenities — our design-build process makes planning, budgeting, and building your landscape easy and efficient.
In addition to a quality grill, many homeowners design their outdoor kitchens to make entertaining and food preparation more accessible and enjoyable. A fully equipped outdoor kitchen allows cooks to prepare and clean up some or all of a meal without running back and forth to the house.

Benefits of Outdoor Kitchens
Your outside kitchen should be both functional and stunningly attractive. Enthusiastic hosts and cooks will enjoy the convenience of a fully-equipped outdoor kitchen. If you grill year-round, your outdoor kitchen can be equipped with lighting and a heat source for when the days are shorter and cooler. In addition, outdoor structures can provide shelter from the elements. Standard features of outdoor kitchens include:
- A bar area where guests can comfortably interact.
- Refrigerator or cooler for beverages, food, and ice.
- Grill, adequately sized for the average number of guests at any time.
- Trash bin and recycle bin tucked away for convenience.
- Extra storage such as drawers, shelves, and access doors.
- Counters for food preparation and service.
- Sinks with running water for food preparation, hand-washing, and easy cleanup.
- Pizza ovens to prepare fabulous feasts for friends.
- A kitchen island to make large-scale food prep a breeze.
How much does an outdoor kitchen cost?
An average outdoor kitchen typically costs $20-40,000. Basic modular kits start at $10,000. The “gourmet” version could run from $60,000 to $70,000. The number of amenities, type of materials, size, and location will primarily determine the cost of an outdoor kitchen.
