They might be small in size, but these compact outdoor kitchens are big on ideas

 

Long to cook outside but worried about a lack of space in your backyard? With some clever planning, there are plenty of small outdoor kitchen ideas that can transform your backyard. From small scale pizza hubs, slide out sink and prep stations to statement hobs that belie their size, there are plenty of designer tips and tricks to transform your yard, balcony or patio.

Sharing the joy of cooking outside with friends and family is a real game changer, so you shouldn’t let the size of your yard get in the way of that. With an outdoor kitchen, brunch, lunch or evening meals can become a leisurely affair where everyone can pitch in as and when needed. It’s also the perfect excuse to flex those culinary skills and experiment with innovative cooking techniques.

 

If you carefully plan an outdoor kitchen, it is possible to turn the smallest patio, courtyard or rooftop into a sociable outdoor cooking space, with room for alfresco dining too.

Blend In Your Kitchen Units For Space-Enhancing Results

Concerned about an outdoor kitchen cramping your space or style? Take a tip from luxury interior designers Kern & Co and use your yard’s backdrop to inform the design and finish of your cabinets in your outdoor grill station.

By matching the housing units for your grill and outdoor appliances to the surrounding walls or garden fencing you can soften boxy shapes, blur harsh joins and awkward gaps, creating a feeling of space-enhancing calm. It’s a really simple but effective way of making a backyard look bigger.
