At the beginning there is the question: blotting or paddling. We recommend the second option and thus a complete outdoor kitchen with seating areas, bars, sink and refrigerator, wine chillers, storage, smoker, grill and pizza-oven. Modular in design, this type of outdoor kitchen is a complete kitchen, which allows the host to prepare whole meals in front of his guests or cook them together with the guests.
This variant is particularly attractive when it is covered and surrounded by stone walls on three sides. Then you will be, regardless of the weather, able to enjoy the outdoor feeling to the fullest even on less warm evenings.

What goes into planning an outdoor kitchen? Where do you begin?
I suggest beginning by defining your goals for the space. The biggest decision is whether or not you want a completely self-sufficient outdoor kitchen -- one that can operate independent of the indoor kitchen. An outdoor kitchen like this needs to include most of the features you would find indoors: cooking appliances (typically a grill and a cooktop), refrigeration, dry storage, a sink and ample countertop space to work with. These outdoor kitchens are naturally larger, but they can be located more remotely from the indoor kitchen. An outdoor kitchen that is conveniently located to the indoor kitchen can be supported by the indoor kitchen. It can be smaller, and it can get by with less features.
Could we quote price levels for high end outdoor kitchens such as the one in the image attached? Or, at give a starting point, or a range?
The average price of a Kalamazoo Outdoor Gourmet kitchen suite is about $30,000, but larger kitchens can exceed $100,000. The Kalamazoo appliances and cabinetry are typically just a part of the outdoor kitchen project cost. The cost of masonry, utilities, fixtures and additional amenities all need to be factored in.
