Our Design Process

Are you feeling overwhelmed with all the kitchen options and not sure where to begin? Let the experts at LanChester Grill & Hearth be your guides. We make it easy to design your outdoor kitchen layout, choose appliances and amenities, and complete the installation.

Our outdoor kitchen designs begin by defining the purpose of your outdoor cooking area and looking at the elements you’d like to include. Are you into outdoor entertaining? Are you interested in stand-alone or built-in grills? We’ll help you determine the space you need and the features you want.

Next, we take the information from our first meeting to begin developing plans for your new outdoor cooking area. We’ll work with you until your outdoor kitchen plans are just the way you want them. Once that’s complete, we’ll schedule the installation and provide plenty of detail, so you’ll know what to expect at each stage of the installation process.

Here at LanChester, we’ve been installing custom outdoor kitchens since 1996. Whether you’re looking for a small built-in patio kitchen for your back porch or a large full-service kitchen complete with hardscaping, lighting, and more, we have the experience to bring your project to life!
