All About Outdoor Kitchens

Creating an open, airy outdoor kitchen gives you a lot of flexibility.

Anyone who loves to grill has dreams of the ultimate outdoor cooking space. A state-of-the-art grill, beautiful patio tiling, maybe even a TV: there are plenty of gorgeous homes with outstanding outdoor kitchens from which to draw inspiration. Before you start drawing up those blueprints, here are some must-haves for any outdoor kitchen:

Appliances:

A grill is an obvious choice for an outdoor kitchen, but you can add so much more to your space. Consider a mini-fridge to store all your to-be-cooked produce & meat, or a sink for easy clean-up.

Adequate storage:

Once you have the grill going, you don’t want to be running back and forth to the house for supplies. Installing weatherproof cabinets to house your grilling gear and dishware will make cooking & serving a breeze.

Seating:

Beautiful evenings and late sunsets are the best parts about summer. So enjoy them! With outdoor dining chairs and a table, your family and friends can enjoy an outside meal.

This may seem obvious, but make sure everything that stays outside will last. From furniture to appliances, you don’t want all the hard work of building & designing to be ruined after just one season. Make sure your outdoor kitchen can make it through both the on- and off-season unharmed, and make sure you have quality protective covers for that which may be damaged by harsher weather.

Make it yours:

You may make your wishlist through Pinterest or HGTV, but remember that this is your outdoor space. Make it your own! What amenities would you love to see in your outdoor kitchen? What layout and design is best suited for your needs?
