Imagine hosting your family barbecues and not having to miss half the party because you’re stuck cooking or because you have to keep running back inside to grab yet another thing from the kitchen. Outdoor kitchens make outdoor entertaining easy! You can cook right where your guests are hanging out and have everything you need within reach. However, before you get to building one, there are many things you should consider:
Outdoor kitchens come in many different styles. Some of the most common include Tuscan, contemporary or tropical styles. Consider the look and feel of your home’s exterior as well as the space the kitchen will be placed in when picking a style.
Once you’ve decided on a theme, you need to pick flooring. Concrete and stone are both popular choices. Your budget, maintenance needs and the durability of the material should be considered when selecting an outdoor flooring option.
Make sure to factor in space for all the equipment you want included. How large of a grill do you need? If you host large gatherings, you may need a large grill. If it is just you and your partner, a small grill may be ideal.
Just like with an indoor kitchen, the countertop is a big decision. The materials and the height are both things that you want to consider. Outdoor kitchen counters can be built at one height or split level with a bar-height counter.
If you’re a family that loves pizza, you can include a pizza oven. Or perhaps you want to wow your guests with an outdoor fireplace. Even make evening entertaining easy, with recessed ambient lighting. Your accessories can enhance your outdoor kitchen, so take the time to learn about the various outdoor kitchen accessories available and select the right ones for you.
Outdoor kitchens can be tailored to whatever your hosting needs may be. Carefully considering all the options and selecting the right ones helps to ensure your outdoor kitchen meets all of your needs and helps make entertaining a breeze.
