An outdoor kitchen allows you to spend more time outside in your backyard. Here are four tips for a comfortable outdoor layout.
It is possible to add a convenient outdoor kitchen to your outdoor landscape. See how, with a few tips, you can recreate the comfort of your home, in your backyard!
First, determine the space and budget you want to devote to your kitchen, in order to predict its configuration. An outdoor kitchen can range from a modest barbecue and a storage cart to a custom-built unit outfitted with electricity, gas, running water and a large food preparation area. Some homeowners even go as far as to install a TV and sound system!
Start by deciding whether your outdoor kitchen layout is intended to be permanent, portable or removable. It is possible to keep it simple by adding a compact island for food preparation and storage next to your barbecue and also by complementing your decoration with an outdoor carpet and colorful accessories.
Optimize the use of your outdoor kitchen by placing your BBQ right outside your back door; you'll be able to use it rain or shine. Also, consider installing a grill gazebo that will protect both the cook and the BBQ from the elements.
An outdoor kitchen is also a great way to enlarge your viable space: you won't have to wonder if you have enough space to accommodate simultaneously your family members and friends! Use your backyard as a space to add additional seating and a large table.
