Entertainment & culinary hubs in your own Bay Area backyard

Who doesn’t like a great backyard cookout? Sound like you? 

Then incorporating a BBQ island or outdoor kitchen into your new backyard renovation may be just what you are looking for to complete the project.

BBQ islands and outdoor kitchens are amenities that can expand your living area and allow you to have guests mill and eat, both in- and outdoors. Add heaters and a firepit as a complement, and you can entertain outdoors all year long.

And beyond convenience, there’s the boost in value this addition will add to your Bay Area home!

We offer you a wide range of outdoor kitchen styles, sizes, and features such as:

  • Grills
  • Smokers
  • Kegerators
  • Burners for Sauces
  • Refrigerator
  • Sink
  • Ice and/or
  • Beverage station

Your BBQ island or outdoor kitchen features also come with visual appeal. Our typical islands are constructed with a steel frame, hardi-backer, stucco, and tile. Slate, porcelain, stacked stone, and other materials can be included to fit your home’s aesthetic style.

And, of course, we design and build the paver patio that it sits on!

PLEASE NOTE: We do not sell and install outdoor kitchens as a standalone service. We offer them as an add-on to our backyard remodel service.

Frequent questions we get asked about outdoor kitchens

Yes. No need to go out shopping alone and confused. We’ll act as your personal concierge as we go through catalogs together and possibly even take a trip to a local showroom. We’ll share our expertise and experience with you to help you make the best choice for your outdoor kitchen and accessories. 

We’ll also make sure you get the lowest price allowable by the manufacturer. 

However, it should be said that we do not sell and install outdoor kitchens as standalones. We offer them as additional amenities to our backyard remodeling services

According to the National Kitchen and Bath Association, the typical spend for an outdoor kitchen is about $13,000, but about 22% of homeowners are building very high-end kitchens ($30,000+) and 14% spend between $20,000 and $30,000. These prices don’t include patios and pergolas that are often included in landscaping projects by Opulands.

Costs are dependent on size, additional installation costs, and, of course, the actual products. 

It’s not essential, but it is recommended that a professional install your outdoor kitchen. One reason is they are typically integrated into patios and pergolas and can require construction in some form. They also often require plumbing for water, gas and electricity. 

On top of all that, an experienced professional can also guide you on design and functional considerations.

According to the NKBA, 84% of homeowners use professional installers.

Like an outdoor kitchen, a BBQ island is a place to prepare and share meals with family and friends. The difference is typically in the appliances – if at all.

Outdoor kitchens generally include many of the same amenities that you’ll find inside your home including a stove, refrigerator, sink and much more.

But a BBQ island can include all the same. Perhaps they lean more into the BBQ taking center stage instead of the 4-burner stove, but that’s about it.

So, should you call it an outdoor kitchen or BBQ island? It’s all in what you make of it and how you make it. 

Opulands is here to make sure you don't miss out on the outdoor fun an outdoor kitchen will afford you!
