As we flip the calendar page to November, our thoughts turn more and more frequently…
Building an outdoor kitchen is a job best left to professionals. Here at Woodfield Outdoors, we have designed and built outdoor kitchens across central Maryland. There is no simple answer to the question “How much does an outdoor kitchen cost?” That’s because the scope of work, materials, aesthetics, and much more will affect the final cost.
Keep that in mind when you see the ballpark figures below for our top 5 outdoor kitchen projects. For a more accurate estimate, contact us directly to schedule an outdoor kitchen design consultation.
Gas Grill with Food Prep Area
These are the most basic elements for a simple outdoor kitchen. A built-in gas grill, a sink, and food prep area. We install granite countertops, with natural stone to support the countertops and any cabinets.
Ballpark Estimate: $13,000 for 10’ by 3’ kitchen layout
Outdoor Fireplace with Pizza Oven
An outdoor fireplace extends your options with your outdoor kitchen. Adding a wood-fired pizza oven makes it even better. Imagine gathering around the fireplace on a cool fall evening, or to watch the big game on your outdoor big screen.
Ballpark Estimate: $30,000 for a standard fireplace design
Patio or Deck
Upgrade your existing patio or deck, or build a new one to flow from your outdoor kitchen. Enjoy outdoor dining at its finest. The size of your deck or patio, the grading of your yard, as well as the materials you choose, will greatly affect the installed cost of your patio or deck. Adding multiple levels, stairs, retaining walls, or built-in seating will add to the cost.
Ballpark Estimate: $20,000 for a 10′ x 10′ patio
Your Own Outdoor Bar
We can install a separate outdoor bar with the bar, bar stools, the bar, a sink, refrigerator, storage area for liquor and glassware, and more. Happy hour is calling.
Ballpark Estimate: $10,000 for a basic bar set up with no appliances
A Pergola or Pavilion
Creating a covered outdoor kitchen with a pergola or pavilion helps shelter you and your guests from the elements. With ceiling fans and overhead lighting, you can cook day or night, no matter the weather.
Ballpark Estimate: starting around $30,000 depending on size and materials
Again, these are only ballpark figures. For a more accurate estimate of your outdoor kitchen cost, we would want to meet with you directly to go over your design ideas.
Get Several Outdoor Kitchen Cost Estimates
Once you have decided on the elements you want to include in your outdoor kitchen, it’s time to set up some design and installation consultations. Ask friends, family, and coworkers for references on general contractors they loved, and which companies to avoid.
Explore their website portfolios, check out their social media, and online reviews. Do they do the kind of project you’re looking for? Do their clients have good things to say? Pick two or three and set up appointments. It’s helpful to have a list of questions to ask all of the outdoor living specialists, so you can compare answers as well as numbers when it comes time to choose who to work with.
