Over the past decade, outdoor kitchens have become all the rage. Tens of thousands of Southern California homeowners have added kitchens to their landscape design to both entertain guests and better enjoy their property.
Hiding away in their backyard oasis, Los Angeles area residents can easily retreat from the hustle and bustle of the busy city. The cost of outdoor kitchen installation, once seen as a luxury for custom homes, has become one of the hottest home improvement projects of even the typical homeowner.
Your home expands well beyond the four walls of your house. Adding outdoor living spaces is a more cost-effective measure than building an addition. Backyard transformations also typically require far less red tape than adding square footage to structures.
As with any home improvement, projects range drastically depending upon added features and scope of work. Outdoor kitchens can be as simple as a basic grill and refrigerator housed in a pre-fabricated island unit, or be as elaborate as a custom-built , full-working kitchen with dining areas for dozens of guests.
The overall cost of outdoor kitchen installation ranges anywhere from $6,000 to $60,000+. This cost is for kitchen elements only, not the patio space they require to be built upon. If you’re adding a patio to your landscape design, and contemplating the addition of a kitchen, this article will guide you as you begin to plan the backyard of your dreams.
Most backyard kitchens Pacific Outdoor Living installs are part of a larger project that incorporates multiple elements such as a patio, plantings, and structures.

It can be done, but just adds a degree of challenge when running utility lines.
