Summer may be waning, but that doesn’t mean those backyard barbecues have to end.

There’s still plenty of open-air fun to be had this fall – from taking a breather from back-to-school anxieties with hotdogs and S’mores to hosting the Sunday afternoon football game. A qualified outdoor kitchen builder can help you maximize the season’s unlimited potential.

Here are just four suggestions to get started.

  • Add a firepit for a natural fit. What is autumn without the alluring flicker of a flame and the snap, crackle, and pop of kindling? Explore the possibilities of a custom hardscaped fireplace or firepit. Once you’re cooking with fire, invite family and friends to gather around for a spooky tale on a crisp, cool evening and create cozy autumn memories together.
  • Try a Pergola, perhaps? Custom pergolas can be a great way to attractively frame your outdoor living space. Not only do these appealing and versatile structures provide a bit of shelter from the elements, but they also add that extra dash of poise to any outdoor cooking space.
  • Be a part of the upper crust: You can make every night pizza night (or kabob night, or barbecue chicken night, or baked potato night…) with a wood-fired pizza oven. These increasingly popular additions to the outdoor kitchen tableau add a robust, rustic flavor to any fall festival or football party, and keep guests clamoring for more.
  • Let it glow, let it glow. As dusk arrives earlier and earlier throughout the season, be sure to equip your outdoor kitchen with ample lighting to successfully navigate your burners, barbecue supplies, and more. LEDs are long-lasting and eco-friendly, and available in a variety of configurations. Your outdoor kitchen builder should be able to point you in the right direction.
