  • Improving your entertainment space – An outdoor kitchen can give guests a central location to gather around and socialize while a meal is being prepared, making for a livelier and more enjoyable environment at parties.

  • Lowering energy bills – Cooking outside can help reduce your electric bills, as extra heat inside can require air conditioning to work harder to cool down your home.

  • Keeping the scent outdoors – Cooking releases scents that can stick to furniture and clothing, especially when it is too hot to ventilate a space. Using your custom outdoor kitchen means that you can keep the scents – and mess – outside while the inside of your home stays fresh.

  • Adding value to your property – Investing in your home can help improve its overall value. Adding an outdoor kitchen to your Cleveland home will have a high rate of return on investment, especially in comparison to many other outdoor home renovation projects.

The Process for Building a Cleveland Outdoor Kitchen

Building a custom outdoor kitchen in Cleveland, Ohio involves several steps to ensure proper planning and preparation. The basic outdoor kitchen building process includes:

  1. Planning and designing – This phase is where you’ll determine the purpose, budget, location, layout, and design of your outdoor kitchen. Covering each of these aspects in your preparation stage will help ensure you don’t have any major problems later on.
     

  2. Permit research – You or your builder will need to consult with the city to research local building codes and regulations to see if certain permits are required for construction. This is also when you’ll want to research utility connections (gas, water, and electricity).
     

  3. Foundation and framing – This step will require leveling the ground, clearing the outdoor kitchen area, and marking the dimensions. Additionally, this is when the base will be created to then start building the structure framing.
     

  4. Electrical and plumbing – After connecting with utility providers, electrical wiring for lighting, outlets, and appliances will need to be installed. Additionally, plumbing for sinks or refrigerators can also be done at this time.
     

  5. Countertop and cabinetry installation – Based on your planned design/layout, you’ll need to install any cabinets or storage units for organization and visual appeal. Also, your chosen countertops will be installed in this step as well.
     

  6. Finishing touches – Apply any finishing touches to complete your desired aesthetic by including backsplash, lighting fixtures, decorative handles, and more. You can also apply finishing materials such as veneer, stucco, or tile to the exterior.

Remember, the process for building a Cleveland, Ohio outdoor kitchen will vary depending on the project size. However, if you’re in the Cleveland area looking for a reliable and professional custom outdoor kitchen builder, Brian-Kyles is here to help.

Frequently Asked Questions on Custom Outdoor Kitchens

Where should I build my custom outdoor kitchen?

The placement of your outdoor kitchen is entirely up to your personal preference. However, there are some factors you should consider like wind direction, sun exposure, proximity to your home, and the existing landscaping. You will also want to have easy access and ensure the placement is ideal for any added appliances.

What materials are best for an outdoor kitchen?

Choosing a material to build your custom outdoor kitchen is another aspect that depends on the aesthetic that you envision. There are some materials, however, that are better suited in terms of durability and resistance to harsh weather, which include granite, concrete, stainless steel, and natural stone.

What do I need to do to make sure my appliances work?

For gas-powered appliances, you’ll need a gas line installed by a professional. If you plan to add a sink, you’ll need plumbing, and a refrigerator will require the appropriate electrical connections. Make sure to consult with the builder of your outdoor kitchen about these components before starting the construction phase of the project.

What can I do to protect my outdoor kitchen during harsh weather?

It is recommended to purchase outdoor covers for all of your appliances to ensure their longevity. When in the planning stages, you may also want to consider the placement of your custom outdoor kitchen to avoid areas that are more heavily exposed to the wind and rain.

Can I use my custom outdoor kitchen all year-round?

Depending on the climate, it is absolutely possible to use your outdoor kitchen all year-round. Since Ohio is prone to cold winters, consider investing in features such as outdoor heaters or a fire pit to extend usability.
