What is an outdoor kitchen?

The point of an outdoor kitchen is to bring the comforts of home outside. This means creating a dedicated outdoor space for cooking, entertaining, and relaxing. An outdoor kitchen offers more than a typical picnic table and grill set up, providing all the essential “ingredients” for cooking and dining outdoors.

While there’s no out-of-the-box option for adding a kitchen to your backyard, MKD’s Outdoor Kitchens Collection provides a unified process that covers designing and installing custom outdoor kitchens.

From durable outdoor kitchen cabinets and grill stations to statement-making outdoor kitchen islands and pizza ovens, there are so many ways to personalize your outdoor space. No matter what kind of climate you live in, an outdoor kitchen is a great way to make the most of your backyard and the great outdoors. 

While the benefits of outdoor kitchens are vast, we go over our favorite features to give you an idea of why investing in your backyard living space is a must this summer.
