We get it. Outdoor kitchen research can be overwhelming. So you've found your ideal pre-assembled outdoor kitchen design and grill brand, but it's missing something. Maybe you want to upgrade your grill, or you'd like to replace the power burner for a flat top hibachi-style grill. Or your perfect pre-assembled design has a sink, and you won't have access to running water. 

The good news: Your dream outdoor kitchen is possible, even with pre-assembled designs. BetterPatio partners with top outdoor kitchen island manufacturers including Cal Flame, NewAge and Kokomo (coming soon) to customize outdoor cooking appliances and storage for pre-designed islands.

The five questions to ask about Your Outdoor Kitchen plans 

How will our outdoor kitchen be assembled (or built)? 
Outdoor kitchens can be categorized on assembly requirements: Pre-Assembled, Quick Assembly (under 2 hours), DIY (Do It Yourself) and Contractor Build. Check out our articles on the benefits of Pre-Assembled Outdoor Kitchens and What You Need to Know about Quick Assembly Outdoor kitchens

What design is best for an outdoor kitchen? Primary designs include linear islands from 4 feet to 11 feet in length, L-Shaped islands and U-Shaped Islands. BetterPatio can also help with custom island designs here. We've broken up our categories based on BBQ Islands (with grills), Bar Islands (no grill) and Modular Island Cabinets (add ons to your existing outdoor kitchen.) We prefer L-Shaped Kitchens because of the space and functionality for both cooking and entertaining, but not all home owners have the space. Buyer beware: Big Box retailers will only sell a design with pre-determined color combinations. BetterPatio can order island designs with personalized material combinations.

What materials should we use for our outdoor kitchen?
Materials are dependent on the manufacturer, and mainly consist of stainless steel, stucco, stacked stone, composite and concrete. Your choice of materials may be based on your proximity to water, design preferences, among other factors.

How much will our outdoor kitchen cost? 
You can spend as little as $2,000 on a pre-assembled BBQ Island, or as much as $20,000 for a true customized island delivered directly to your backyard. 

What is the best grilling brand for us?
This is a personal question, with many factors influencing your decision.  If you have questions about the grilling brand best for you, feel free to chat with us below or call us at 1-866-412-1555.
