When was the last time you did anything different to your home? There’s a good chance the house needs an update. Let’s try the kitchen! Many homeowners dream of having an outdoor kitchen, but building a new cooking area outside does have a high price tag, mainly if an awning covers the area.
Instead of building a second cooking area, try using one of these creative ways to create a larger indoor kitchen that makes the room feel outdoorsy.
1. Find the Best Spot With Natural Light
The best part of having an outdoor kitchen is the natural light—you’ll want to select a spot that offers the most light. This is one way to style your kitchen on a budget.
When picking a location, ensure that it’s pouring in the most sunlight—you don’t need to rely on what direction of the house the sun rises in; pay particular attention to areas the sunbeams shine through the most. You can start expanding the kitchen and opening it up for more light.
2. Let In More Light With Glass Doors
Aside from being generous with how many doors you add to your home, you should consider how much light comes through those doors. If you have oversized doors, you create a better flow of traffic and sunlight.
Allow your kitchen to stretch out into the back patio and offer more room for traffic and cooking. A homeowner crafts a beautiful kitchen with the right touches, such as glass entryways.
3. Enhance With Exterior Elements Inside

You don’t need a second kitchen outside, but you can bring the outdoors in with certain elements. The best way to fake an outdoor kitchen is by adding natural wood materials, such as wooden beams on the ceiling, brick floors, and natural wood countertops.
4. Create Symmetry With Color
To make the kitchen feel like it’s truly an outdoor kitchen and feel balanced, you need color. When picking hues, focus on green, blue, and yellow shades. These are the most natural and make the kitchen feel outdoorsy.
5. Go for an Open Layout
The start to a better kitchen that completely pulls off an outdoor vibe is organization. Even if there’s not much done to the current layout, it’s essential to keep clutter out and everything organized. Having less clutter is crucial if you make layout modifications for a better airy feel.
6. Add in Greenery
Get creative with your outdoor elements to make the kitchen feel and look better. For an added detail to make the area feel like it’s outdoors, incorporate greenery. Any plants make the kitchen feel like it’s outdoors.
You’ll need to find creative ways to make your indoor kitchen feel like an outdoorsy kitchen. From adding outdoorsy touches to expanding your layout, you can make the kitchen feel like an additional exterior space.
