Your Dream Outdoor Kitchen
Is Just A Few Clicks Away

No skills needed. This outdoor kitchen design software (Word-based layout program) is very easy to use and is designed for anyone with minimal computer skills. Let your imagination do the work. Here’s how:

STEP 1 – PREPARE YOUR LAYOUT

For ease of navigation, go to View > Navigation Pane. This will allow you to jump between the working space and product categories. Fill out the Project Information such as the outdoor kitchen cabinet depth, powder coat color, cabinet door style, countertop thickness, and your notes. If you don’t know some of these details, it’s okay to just leave them blank.

Using the clean workspace on this kitchen design software, start your outdoor area design from left to right.

STEP 2 – SELECT YOUR CABINET SIZES

Part 1

For ease of navigation, go to View > Navigation Pane. This will allow you to jump between the working space and product categories. Fill out the Project Information such as the outdoor kitchen cabinet depth, powder coat color, cabinet door style, countertop thickness, and your notes. If you don’t know some of these details, it’s okay to just leave them blank.

Using the clean workspace on this kitchen design software, start your outdoor area design from left to right.

Part 2

Follow this same procedure as you build the remainder of your custom outdoor kitchen. Proceed to Base cabinets, then click down below your wall cabinets. The single door cabinets will be labeled with LH (left hinge) or RH (right hinge).

STEP 3 – SELECT YOUR CABINET SIZES

Continue the process by adding a trash base, a grill base, and more. Finish off the kitchen with a side panel on the end.

STEP 4 – REVIEW YOUR OUTDOOR KITCHEN SPACE AND DESIGN

Once you’ve completed your cabinetry layout, paste it onto a new page and save the document with your project name.

For more professional applications, we have a comprehensive library available on Sketch-Up and other 3D layout programs. In addition, you can spark your creativity by checking out our Gallery, which includes photos of real life outdoor kitchen designs.
