Even the coziest outdoor kitchen can create big impact outside—just keep your mind (and your budget) focused on the essentials as well as the features and functions you'll use the most.

Beyond a gas-burning or charcoal-burning grill, simple amenities such as additional countertop space, a storage cabinet and under-counter refrigeration can go a long way in improving your backyard's sizzle (and style) quotient.

Another bonus of working with a smaller outdoor kitchen space: high-end materials, when used in small quantities, aren't as much of a budget-buster. Use this opportunity to make surfaces like the countertop and base stand out with materials like flagstone, bluestone, round stone, concrete or even granite.

Similarly, the outdoor chef may prefer to invest in top-of-the-line products (even if it's just the grill), rather than spending a fortune on smaller appliances like warming drawers, ice machines or even a side burner.

Other small outdoor kitchen ideas worth exploring: a countertop overhang to provide room for breakfast bar-style seating, or perhaps a small sink and under-counter space for a trash can. Sometimes sticking with the basics can be the most satisfying strategy.
