Outdoor patios are often located in residential backyards and can be constructed from a variety of materials in many shapes and sizes. Patios provide a level and attractive surface for outdoor amenities, such as outdoor kitchens and outdoor seating areas. When designing your Danver stainless steel outdoor kitchen, a backyard patio is one of many options for the placement of your outdoor kitchen. This article discusses the materials, benefits, and layout options for your outdoor patio space, as well as reasons for choosing Danver for your patio outdoor kitchen.
Outdoor Patio Design Ideas and Benefits
There are many factors to consider when navigating how to design an outdoor patio. Several material options are available for outdoor patio construction, such as concrete, pavers, brick, and stone. Your material choice will depend on budget, as well as the location of the backyard patio, layout needs, and aesthetics of your outdoor area. Some materials, like concrete or brick, tend to be inexpensive options. Concrete will offer an industrial look to your backyard patio, while stone will add a natural touch. Brick and stone can be laid in intricate designs and color patterns to enhance the design. Most materials can be painted in a variety of colors as well.
For cooking, eating, and entertaining, a patio for your outdoor space offers a finished surface in your backyard for your outdoor kitchen, as well as for other features like a seating area. A patio is also a great option for placement near your pool for lounging in the sun. Since you will not want to place your outdoor kitchen directly onto grass or dirt, a patio offers a clean, level foundation for your outdoor kitchen installation and the rest of your outdoor living space.

Best Patio Outdoor Kitchen Layouts
The best outdoor kitchen layouts for patios will be functional in accordance with the size and shape of your outdoor space and patio. You will need to consider the size of your patio area and how much space your outdoor kitchen will require, plus the addition of other features and amenities. If your patio area is against your home, you will want to consider where to place grills and other heating appliances, as you will not want to place them against your house.
If your patio is limited in size, a straight run of cabinets may be your only option. For medium sized patios, an L shaped outdoor kitchen is a more functional option, as this backyard patio design offers a work triangle for effective food prep and workflow. On large patios, a U shaped or a G shaped layout will provide the most versatile and functional outdoor kitchen experience for cooking and entertaining.
