a simple outdoor kitchen that matches the indoor kitchen

This simple outdoor kitchen is visible through the indoor kitchen window, so it uses the same soapstone countertop as the indoor kitchen to present a harmonious appearance. The side burner is dropped to 24" height to make it easier to manage large pots.

In this case, the back was already finished with a solid railing, so the only thing we had to do was make sure the bottom four inches looked good.

In most cases, the simplest thing is to add a solid panel of siding inside of the railing, like cement siding, to finish out the back without replacing the railing itself. You can paint it all the same color and make it look like you did it on purpose. Be careful when planning your structure to observe the required clearances to combustibles (wood).

Do you mean the power burner to the left, mounted at 24" off the floor? It is a Lynx power burner. We usually mount them lower than standard 36" counter height if a client wants to be able to use big pots for cooking in their outdoor kitchen. It places the pot at a safer, more usable height.

Measuring across the back, the short leg of the "L" is 7'-4", the long leg is 9'-6. The countertop is 32" deep and 36" high.

We are close to the ocean, so uncovered installations close to slat exposure - where the rain can wash off the salt - actually last longer than covered outdoor kitchens.

This is a 3-month-old grill handle within 75 feet of the Intracoastal Waterway, in a covered installation.

what is the countertop?

- It is a green soapstone, which is one of the best surfaces for an outdoor kitchen. The client chose it to match his indoor countertops, since he can see his outdoor kitchen through his kitchen window.
