Primary Design Considerations for Outdoor Kitchens in McLean, VA

Outdoor living spaces, including the wildly popular variations of outdoor kitchens in McLean, VA, continue to bring McLean families and neighbors together while adding significant home resale value for homeowners.

While there are an amazing number of design considerations when planning outdoor kitchens, Mclean, VA homeowners need to focus on a few basic necessities before losing themselves in the many decisions regarding materials, finishes, components and appliances, space configuration, storage needs and traffic flow. Here are a few of the primary design considerations to explore before planning your outdoor kitchen in Mclean VA:

  • Examine your outdoor space in its current state.
    • Is there an existing patio or porch in place? Is it structurally suitable?
    • If not, can the ground be leveled and re-graded?
    • What is the size (available and desired) of the workable outdoor space?
  • How will home utilities be connected to your outdoor kitchen?
    • plumbing
    • electrical
    • propane
  • How will placement and orientation dictate design elements for shelter from sun, rain or wind?
    • Think about a private, quiet space uninterrupted by the world outside. Ensure none of the appliances pose a fire risk to your home, a neighbor’s house or nearby buildings.
    • What are your prevailing winds? Where will smoke blow?
    • Do you have natural sun protection or do you need to install overhead shade?
    • Note any overhead power lines, call Miss Utility Virginia for the location of underground utilities, and estimate the position and growth expectations of nearby trees.
    • How stable is the site soil? Does it need to be leveled, graded, reinforced or controlled with retaining walls or other means?
    • How will stormwater drain through the surface? To where?
