A key (but often overlooked, at least initially) part to these outdoor luxuries: the plumbing and electrical work required—so plan accordingly, both for your dream design and budget.
Before you banish your coffee pot completely, consider these design solutions for conveniently storing your appliances, swapping them for smaller models or cleverly concealing them in your small kitchen.
While outdoor kitchen appliances help extend the use of your kitchen, think of other elements that will extend through the seasons—like a heater for cooler winter nights or a bar for entertaining.
Another option for making more room in your small kitchen is to downsize your appliances — literally. European appliances are typically much smaller than American models, although they work just as well. Gourmets may cringe initially, but an under-counter refrigerator drawer is a space-saving alternative to the upright behemoths we're most familiar with. A refrigerator/freezer combo drawer installed within the kitchen cabinetry is a smart design solution and ideal for cramped galley-style layouts.
