Toronto Outdoor Kitchen Design and Construction

Extend Your Outdoor Living

You might be asking yourself, why do I need an outdoor kitchen if I already have a grill? If you want to make your outdoor space one that is frequently used and thoroughly enjoyed by all, then customizing it to be as comfortable as the inside of your home is just the answer. When you pair with M.E. Contracting to create your outdoor kitchen, all you have to do is dream up the idea, and we will run with it to create your ideal outdoor space. If you are still searching for reasons to build an outdoor kitchen, here are a few.

With an Outdoor Kitchen, Cooking Becomes an Outdoor Activity

When you get yourself out of the kitchen inside and on the patio outside where everyone else is enjoying laughs and snacks and cocktails, the fun begins before the food even hits the table. It is an opportunity to spend more time with your friends and family and even make the cooking process a group project.

Entertain With Ease

Forget about shuttling back and forth between your kitchen and the patio while your guests are all outside. With an outdoor kitchen, you can have your grill, sink, and even a refrigerator all at your fingertips without having to leave your guests. And as the night carries on and everyone gets hungry again, you can easily throw some more burgers or finger foods on the grill to satisfy everyone’s late-night hunger. Your outdoor kitchen will be the ideal gathering spot!

Increase the Value of Your Home

An outdoor kitchen is a smart investment for any homeowner. You immediately add value to your outdoor space when you have M.E. Contracting build your kitchen with quality materials and professional precision. Our stainless steel options will allow you to have an outdoor kitchen that can stand the test of time and weather as well, so you won’t have to worry about replacing it before putting your house on the market.

Extend Your Living Space Outside

When you add an outdoor kitchen, you are bringing an indoor element outside, extending the amount of living space your home has to offer. It can become a common gathering area for your family and friends. And the best part is it’s outside! How often do we stare outside our office windows, longing for fresh air and relaxation? An outdoor kitchen is an ideal way to get outside while spending time with people you care about in a beautiful atmosphere.

Why Wait?

An outdoor kitchen can become your family and friends’ favorite place to gather and spend time. It’s where birthdays and holidays will be celebrated and countless memories will be made. M.E. Contracting can help you draft up the ideal design for your outdoor kitchen that stays within your budget while still meeting your wants and needs and then bring that idea to life. Why wait any longer to install a new part of your home that is functional, practical, and can be enjoyed by so many?

Do you have questions about outdoor kitchen design & construction? we invite you to call and speak to a staff member. Meanwhile, we’ve put together a few answers to some of our commonly asked questions about Outdoor kitchen design and construction below


Almost all landscaping projects add value to the resell value of your home and outdoor kitchens are no exception. Adding an outdoor kitchen to your home has several benefits to your home’s value. It creates more functional and practical space and utilizes more of your home’s land, which makes your home feel bigger. It creates a focal point in your yard and draws a natural incentive to spend more time in your outdoor space.
In the event that you resell your home, opt for a spring or summer sale time, as it will highlight this unique and sought-after feature.


There are many types of outdoor kitchens that will not require permits! Although, this may change depending on the kind of job as well as the current municipality bylaws. In most cases, building an outdoor kitchen will be an easy construction process that won’t require you to get the permits of your city. However, if your outdoor kitchen is dependent on a large deck, or has special features, such as a wood-burning stove, a permit will be required.
If a permit is required, M.E. Contracting will be there with you each step of the way making sure the application process is done properly and in a timely manner.


There are many countertop options for your outdoor kitchen and making a decision should take into consideration the location of the outdoor kitchen, the size, required maintenance and budget.
M.E. Contracting’s staff will be able to help you make the proper decision but here are some options:
Concrete countertops are a highly durable, modern and long-lasting option, which has seen an increase in popularity. This highly customizable material has almost infinite possibilities for colour, shape and size, but does require regular resealing.
Granite countertops are a popular choice, known for their durability and beauty. When selecting granite options, you may want to consider a lighter color, as darker colors can absorb a good deal of heat when exposed.
Economical and elegant options like natural limestone, sandstone and marble can provide your outdoor kitchen with a natural look, but certain porous options may absorb oils.
