Outdoor Kitchen Ideas for the Fall

Outdoor KitchenOutdoor kitchens aren’t just for summer barbeques! You can create a cozy outdoor living space for the fall to cook all kinds of treats. Outdoor spaces are where the comforts of home meet the adventures of the natural world. It’s agreed that most people tend to be happier outside, so why not build a kitchen and patio space to give yourself a lovely excuse for staying out in the fresh air?

There are so many ways you can enjoy an outdoor kitchen in the fall. For example, simply grab some blankets for the cool air and enjoy the stars while you cook at night. Outdoor kitchens are so appropriate next to a fireplace with comfy seating. This intimate floor plan for your patio will make your house the go-to place for get-togethers.

There are some construction and design points that are unique to outdoor kitchens. Here are some outdoor kitchen essentials for you to consider this fall.

Lighting Solutions

In autumn, it gets dark more quickly. You’ll need some versatile lighting solutions to keep track of everything while you are cooking. If you have a gazebo over your kitchen, use the lights that can be swiveled and anchored in place. This way you can point your lights wherever they are most needed, and you can quickly change where they focus in minutes.


This fall, indoor designs are trending towards darker colors, like black kitchen cabinets or grey kitchen cabinets. With their construction, RTA (ready-to-assemble) cabinets are well-known for their easy customization. This is a great solution for outdoor kitchens, because the space available allows you to be highly creative. Lengthy barbeque gear can be stored in a separate cabinet if you don’t want it visible on the counter, and Rev-A-Shelf add-ons can be installed to keep everything organized.

Kitchen Island with Seating

A kitchen island with seating is a great substitute or supplement for your regular patio furniture. It’s perfect for parties and social gatherings because it’s easy for everyone to move around and mingle. Another great feature of kitchen islands is that you can add cabinetry beneath them. Again, RTA cabinets are great for custom plans, and you can easily take a great cabinet design and top it with a stone like uba tuba granite.

Make your own kitchen island with seating using our highly versatile RTA cabinets. Visit RTACabinetStore.com for details.
