Outdoor Kitchen Design: How it works

Step 1: Select Your Layout

Let’s get started.

This tool requires very little computer skills. We meant it. Kitchen Design Software requires only an internet connection. Just a few clicks will get your creative juices going.

We will first choose the layout of our outdoor kitchen. You can choose one of five options to find the perfect layout for your outdoor patio, cabana, or deck.

This kitchen layout is ideal for small spaces, under an awning, or as a floating island. Although the traditional rectangle shape is simple, you have five options: 4, 5, 6, and 8-foot lengths.

Outdoor kitchens in L-shaped shapes are ideal for patios, decks, and porches. You can choose between left- or right-aligned layouts so that you make the most of your outdoor space.

The U-shaped layout places you in the center of an outdoor kitchen layout. This layout is ideal for any space. This design is great as a standalone on the lawn or under the pavilion’s rafters.

The galley view is a great solution for narrow spaces. This parallel alignment will double your space.

Step 2: Select Your Island Size

Next, choose the size of your islands.

Coyote Outdoor Kitchens uses modules to provide the ideal combination of affordability, custom design, and easy build.

A straight layout is composed of one module. You can choose from four different sizes islands for each of the other layout options.

The U-shaped kitchen is made up of two 8-foot long islands joined by a connector. You have many options for the size of the connector. It can be 4, 5, 6, or 8 feet long.

In the upper left-hand corner of your screen, you’ll see a 3D model of your design. This useful image allows you to identify the section of your layout that you want at any given moment.

After you have chosen the lengths for your modules, it’s time to move on to the next step: selecting your appliances.

Step 3: Choose Your Grill Island Appliance Layout It’s now time for some fun!

This step will bring to life some backyard kitchen ideas that you have been dreaming about.

Let’s first configure the layout before we choose the appliances that you want to use on your grill island. This is where our outdoor kitchen design software truly shines.

Do you prefer one or two grills? What number of accessories would you like?

You will choose the grill appliance layouts and decide where the islands should be placed. There are many options.

This stage is where you will choose cutout slots. The next step will be the selection of the appliance. It is important to decide on the overall layout. This includes where the grill should fit and how much space you have for storage and accessories.

Grills can be stacked side-by-side, or you can place an accessory placeholder for a fridge or pull-out drawers.

This tool can be used to create a wide variety of outdoor DIY kitchen designs. Don’t be afraid to get locked into one design when you are ready. You can easily navigate through the steps as many times you want to create the outdoor kitchen space of dreams.

Depending on your configuration, you might see a red indicator for island overlap. This indicates a section of an island that will be connected to another module. This tool won’t allow you to place appliances in areas where the island modules overlap or join. This area of the island is not accessible for storage, but the counter space will make it possible to create a seamless corner.

You may be prompted to add more items to your order before you complete this step. This depends on the setup. You will be able add a stand for your woodfired pizza oven or a pedestal to hold our Asado ceramic smoker.

Step 4: Select Your Appliances

Do you prefer a charcoal or gas grill? Or a self-feeding wood smoker? There are even electric grill options.

This step allows you to choose from the best Coyote Outdoor Living appliances to help bring your vision to reality.

As you get closer to finalizing the design, you will notice that small, medium and big accessories make more sense. We now have the opportunity to fill those spaces with incredible gear, including stainless steel storage bins, warming shelves for keeping your buns warm, and storage drawers.

A quick administrative note: There might be a small red dot inside with a white exclamation point. This icon indicates that the dimensions of the items that are combined in this space won’t fit together.

If you are looking for gas grill that has hood lights features a deep well, then you should consider the Cayote 36-inch gas grill. It will make it difficult to accommodate certain cabinet heights. The 31-inch double-sided steel doors of the CDA2431 model storage container are a great match. Recommended pairings will have a white checkmark inside of a green dot.

You can place many other items, such as spice racks, powerburners, refrigerators or ice chests, coolers, and sinks.
