Building your dream outdoor kitchen with sink and wood frame + plan

Do you love spending the cool summer evenings on the patio, too? Outdoor dinners are finally here, filled with food, drink and conversation. But what to do, when the main course is finished and some plates need to be washed out for dessert? Would it not be a pity to have to break up from the company and go use the sink inside the house? Build an outdoor kitchen out there instead! With water and sewage, it’s even more fun to cook outdoors! Smart storage, fresh herbs and utensils are close at hand, as well. Plus, there are no wooden floors to take into account. Wonderfully!

how to build an outdoor kitchen step by step wood frame

The sink, featured in this outdoor kitchen, has dimensions 600 x 2200 mm. Or, this is 23 inches by 86 inch/2 x 7 ft. You can customize your BBQ grill in the design, as well. If you do not find stainless steel, it is good to put your worktop in place instead of installing a lowered hood. Of course, the surface must be weather resistant – maybe concrete? You can also think of a shorter sink that is extended with a piece of hard-wearing countertop.

The drain on the image is linked to a small, simple grey water filtration system called: “Stenkista” that cleans and recycles water. Perhaps you’re lucky and have a sewage nearby? In the faucet there is only cold water, the hot water pipe is plugged, as well. On the cold water pipe is a quick coupler so you can easily put on a plastic hose for incoming water.

DIY outdoor kitchen from pallets

Pallets are not just for shipping and storing goods, they can also be repurposed into beautiful and functional pieces of furniture. And what better way to use them than to create your very own outdoor kitchen?

For example, you can use whole pallets to create the base of your outdoor kitchen. Simply stack them on top of each other and secure them with screws or nails. This will give you a sturdy and durable base for your outdoor kitchen. You can also add a coat of paint or stain to give it a more polished look.

For the countertop and sink, you can use a one-piece stainless steel sink and countertop. This will not only give your outdoor kitchen a modern look but also make it easy to clean and maintain.

Alternatively, simply cut a hole in the top pallet to fit a plastic washbasin and secure it in place. You can also add a faucet and plumbing for convenience.

This will not only be functional, but also add a rustic touch to your outdoor kitchen.
