Choosing the Details of Your Outdoor Kitchen
Smart homeowners know the value of adding an outdoor living space, including a kitchen. Making the most of your own backyard is more than hiring a quality landscaping company to make your yard look pretty.
Adding an outdoor kitchen is about adding functionality and value. It gives the property beyond your interior walls a purpose.
So beyond making choices about details like outdoor lighting comes choices like a kitchen sink. Maybe not something you thought you’d ever need for your backyard, but you’re going to love the results of the project, once it’s complete.
Make the Most of Your Outdoor Kitchen
Having consistent access to an outdoor kitchen really is a game-changer. It enables you to entertain more and cook foods you normally wouldn’t within the confines of your traditional kitchen.
It even affords you the ability to add features you normally wouldn’t for a home kitchen, like a brick oven. For now though, let’s consider some basics you’ll need to think about and choose from:
Each of these components is essential but some will be at least slightly different than what you selected for inside your home. For one thing, although many people still include a stove, everyone knows the grill is the cornerstone when it comes to outdoor cooking. You can choose between a charcoal, propane, or gas grill and much of it depends on how much cooking you intend to do on the grill.
Sure, your indoor kitchen also needs storage but outdoor storage is slightly different. You’ll want to leave your cooking ingredients inside, except for maybe a few condiments, but you can still store pots, pans, dishes, and even some appliances.
Families rarely need as large of an outdoor refrigerator as their indoor version, but that depends on how much you intend to store or entertain. A compact unit that neatly fits under the countertop is ideal for saving space.
Let’s not forget the seating and lighting because that’s what really makes the atmosphere, as well as makes the area user-friendly. You want to make this a place you, your family, and friends can all enjoy.
