Methods Used to Prepare Outdoor Kitchen Price Estimates
The total cost of your outdoor kitchen will depend greatly on the quality of materials used. The contractor will discuss what kind of materials and appliances you would like to use in your outdoor kitchen and determine a price based on those individual components. If your outdoor kitchen requires pouring a foundation or installing new electrical, you contractor will quote you for those additional costs and add that to the overall bill.

Reasons for Cost to Build an Outdoor Kitchen Variances
Outdoor kitchen contractors use a combination of methods to evaluate and price projects. They take several factors into consideration that impact the cost of the project, including:
Quality of materials. Material quality is the primary cost consideration. More expensive materials and appliances will cause the cost of the project to increase. High-end countertops, stainless steel appliances, and other upgrades can add up.
Location. The closer your outdoor kitchen is to your home, the less expensive it will be. This often means it will be easier to extend the existing plumbing and electrical to the new space.
Preexisting structures and utilities. If your outdoor kitchen requires doing significant site work, building a foundation, or installing new gas or plumbing lines, the overall cost of the project will be higher.
Custom framing. Building an outdoor kitchen with prefabricated parts and materials will be less expensive than custom framing that allows for more design freedom.
Geography. If you are in a high cost area or in an area that is difficult to reach (more travel time), then costs will generally be higher.
