Outdoor Kitchen Checklist

Download the Outdoor Kitchen Project Checklist

Kalamazoo Outdoor Gourmet has created a kitchen checklist specifically to aid professionals in successfully designing an outdoor kitchen.

While our kitchen checklist cannot thoroughly cover every outdoor kitchen situation, it has been created to address the key design aspects that apply to most projects. Kalamazoo kitchen experts are available to help you solve the challenges that inevitably arise  when you are creating your outdoor kitchen designs.

The Kalamazoo Kitchen Checklist is available to website members who have registered as design professionals. Registration is free, so sign up now to view the full checklist that includes:

  • Outdoor site assessment
  • Gas, water and electric utilities
  • Grill and other outdoor kitchen components selection
  • Safety considerations
  • Dining, comfort, materials and more.
