Believe it or not the best place to start is with you and your family. Make a list of those things that you feel you will most need in your outdoor kitchen and then list those things that you think will be beneficial. For example, most families agree a good grill is a must at backyard, but do also want to make breads, pies and pizza out of doors? If so then you are going to want a wood burning oven as well. You might even want to include an open fire pit for guests to gather around, a dining set and of course cabinets and counter tops.
There are several options when planning your outdoor kitchen. The most common design styles include the basic island, a "U" shaped island and an "L" shaped island. What you put into your kitchen island is up to you. Some outdoor kitchen ideas for the basic island would be to include a grill, a sink and a little work space. This is adequate for occasional light cooking. A "U" shaped island may have room for a grill, a sink, some storage and some work space. Because of the compact shape, it would fit in a small yard and allow you to visit with guests while you are cooking. "L" shaped islands tend to be larger, giving you a lot more room for food preparation. A grill could be located on the short side of the "L" while the longer side may contain a sink, a refrigerator, storage and other accessories.
Don't forget the lighting! Outdoor kitchen ideas for lighting include ambiance lighting with soft white or colored bulbs, solar lighting and LED lighting that can give you the brightness you may need to cook after the sun goes down.
