Cook Under the Sky with a New Outdoor Kitchen

Published on: May 29, 2015

One of the biggest trends in outdoor living space upgrades is the fabulous outdoor kitchen. Many homeowners are turning that single grill on the back patio into a fully functional area to create elaborate meals without running to and from the indoor kitchen. If you love to entertain or just enjoy spending as much time as possible outdoors, maybe it is time to add an outdoor kitchen to your home.

Outdoor Kitchen Options

There are many options when it comes to creating an outdoor kitchen space for your home, from the extreme to the functional. You design will depend on how much you plan to use your new kitchen and what features are most desirable for your needs. Some options include:

Plumbing. If having a working sink or wet bar is one of the options you prefer, you will need plumbing for your outdoor kitchen. This can be tied to your indoor plumbing or in a self-contained unit.

Grill and stovetop options. For some, their outdoor kitchen is just an extension of their grill, with counters and a sink for easier grilling and cleanup. However, other kitchens add a stovetop for sautéing and boiling.

Appliances. It is convenient to have a refrigerator and freezer included in your outdoor kitchen for easy access to your perishable meats and other food items. Also, integrating outlets for blenders and other appliances may be useful.

To begin designing your dream outdoor kitchen, contact a local landscape company that offers professional design and installation services for outdoor kitchens. They can help you create the perfect space for cooking under the sky this summer and for many summers to come.
