Fun Upgrades for Your Kansas City Outdoor Kitchen

In Kansas City, nice weather is an open invitation to head to your favorite outdoor patio for dining and drinks. But when you have a functional and beautiful outdoor kitchen, you can enjoy all the things you love about patio dining just a few steps out your back door.

Whether you’re hosting a game day barbecue or enjoying a quiet family dinner under the stars, the right outdoor kitchen features can make all the difference. From budget-friendly enhancements to luxurious additions, here are a few fun upgrades to turn your outdoor kitchen into your family and friends’ favorite hot spot.

Weather-Proof Entertainment Systems for Your Outdoor Kitchen

Make your outdoor kitchen the ultimate entertainment destination with a weather-proof entertainment system. Consider installing a high-definition outdoor TV that remains clear even in bright sunlight and a surround sound system to play your favorite playlist or listen to the game. These systems come in various price ranges, so there’s an option that fits your budget and enhances your outdoor entertaining.

Install a Fireplace in or Near Your Outdoor Kitchen

An outdoor fireplace isn’t just a beautiful focal point; it’s a functional addition that lets you enjoy your outdoor kitchen well into the cooler months. In Kansas City, where the spring and fall evenings can be chilly, a well-placed outdoor fireplace is a warm gathering spot for friends and family.

Whether you opt for a traditional wood-burning fireplace or a modern gas-powered model, adding a fireplace to your outdoor kitchen creates a cozy ambiance perfect for roasting marshmallows, sharing stories or simply enjoying a quiet, starlit night. With a range of designs from rustic stone to sleek contemporary styles, you can tailor your outdoor fireplace to complement your home’s aesthetic and meet your entertainment style.

A Pizza oven adds a Touch of Gourmet

Why not add a gourmet flair to your outdoor culinary space with a pizza oven? Not only are pizza ovens a crowd-pleaser, but they also add a rustic charm to your outdoor decor. Choose from wood-fired models for an authentic taste or go for a modern, gas-powered oven for convenience.

Integrate a Smoker and/or Grill, of Course!

Kansas City is a barbeque town, so a state-of-the-art smoker or grill is a hot commodity. Integrated units that combine grills, smokers, and even rotisseries offer flexibility to cook everything from brisket to rotisserie chicken. Tailor this setup to your specific needs and budget, ensuring you’re always ready to throw down for a barbecue.

Set the Mood with Adjustable Lighting

To truly make your outdoor kitchen a year-round evening retreat, invest in adjustable lighting. From ambient lighting to enhance the mood to task lighting for cooking, a well-lit outdoor kitchen extends the usability of your space beyond the daylight hours. LED strip lights or solar-powered lanterns can add both functionality and charm without breaking the bank.

Outdoor Heaters to Keep Your Outdoor Kitchen Cozy All Year

The series of outdoor heaters perfectly sized for your outdoor kitchen will keep your outdoor kitchen functional even in cold months. Our outdoor kitchen designers recommend Infratech. Depending on your model, you can choose a wall, ceiling, or recessed mount. All Infratech outdoor heaters are available in eight standard colors but can be customized to match your space and style.

Add a Beverage Center to Your Outdoor Kitchen

No outdoor kitchen is complete without a dedicated area for drinks. A built-in beverage center with refrigeration keeps drinks cold and accessible, perfect for entertaining. Go as simple as a standalone cooler or as sophisticated as a wine cooler with an ice maker. This addition not only ups your hosting game but also keeps guests mingling in the kitchen with you.

Extendable Awnings or Pergolas Keep the Party Going

Kansas City weather is unpredictable, but with extendable awnings or pergolas, you can ensure that your outdoor kitchen is usable, come rain or shine. These features not only provide protection from the elements but also add a stylish architectural element to your outdoor space. Motorized options allow you to adjust the coverage with the push of a button, making it easy and convenient.

Have an Option for an Underdeck System?

If you have space under your deck for an outdoor kitchen, an underdeck system can turn it into usable living space, perfect for an outdoor kitchen installation. An underdeck space has lots of potential. Whether you’re looking for a cozy nook for intimate family dinners, a sheltered outdoor kitchen, or a quiet place to relax, Complete Home Concepts has the perfect solution with our Underdeck Ceiling System.

With these fun and functional upgrades, your outdoor kitchen will boost your home’s value and be a place for creating memories. Whether you’re looking for minor enhancements or a major overhaul, there’s an array of options to fit every desire and budget. Ready to take your outdoor kitchen to the next level?
