Winter is slowly moving out and Spring is right around the corner! It’s time to start planning for your Summer activities including barbecues and outdoor entertaining. If you are only using your grill for hamburgers and hot dogs while other dishes are being prepared in your kitchen, you will spend a lot of time running back and forth. Every time you throw an outdoor party, you will be getting quite a workout!
The answer to your situation is creating an outdoor kitchen! You will be able to enjoy your backyard entertaining without having to race back and forth from your indoor kitchen. Here are some wonderful outdoor kitchen ideas so you can create your very own, unique outdoor cooking spot!
You can create a very modern outdoor kitchen that reflects your very modern home interior and/or exterior. You can create a very chic, modern design that fits your taste and style.
Creating Your Outdoor Kitchen Storage:
Let’s face it, just like your indoor kitchen, you are going to need outdoor storage with plenty of cupboard space. When planning your outdoor kitchen, make sure you have plenty of space for cabinets and other storage areas. One of the best solutions is bringing in stainless steel cabinets that will stand up to all forms of weather.
Make Your Outdoor Kitchen Feel Like A Real Room:
When planning your outdoor kitchen, you should give this room as much respect as you would any room inside your home. Make sure you have a roof or covered space to avoid a possible rain shower that could destroy your cooking plans.
Make sure it’s cozy and has many indoor amenities to make this area very comfortable. Take some ideas from this stove, vent, cupboards, ceiling fan, and roof! Sit down and give it some thought for planning and laying out your outdoor kitchen ideas.
How About A Wood Burning Pizza Oven?
Every time you throw an outdoor party, you don’t want to always serve the same old stuff like hot dogs and burgers. Incorporating a wood-burning pizza oven could make you the hit of the neighborhood.
Outdoor Seating Arrangements:
Keep in mind that your seating arrangement should offer space and comfort with a large table and plenty of seats, to serve refreshing cool drinks from your outside refrigerator, and be sure and provide music or even a television set mounted on a wall!
What Is Entertaining Without Proper Lighting?
Either your outdoor party will start off with sunlight but then the skies get dark and it’s night time. I don’t think cooking with a flashlight is exactly something you would look forward to. As many outdoor parties will be during the evening, it’s time to consider proper lighting.
How about adding a wonderful multipurpose ceiling fan that includes lights. You can cook, entertain, and have a wonderful place for family and friends to get together.
Time To Consider Your Outdoor Kitchen Floors:
There are so many wonderful tiles and flooring to look into and find what matches your taste. Beautiful tiles that come in a rainbow of choices from the classic black and white to stone. Take your time and find the perfect match for your outdoor kitchen ideas.
It’s Getting Time To Clean Up With Your Outdoor Kitchen Sink!
It will be well-worth your time to hire a plumber to install an outdoor sink. Whether for handling food or cleaning up as the party unwinds. You sure don’t want to lug all those dirty dishes back inside. Go to your local home improvement center and find the perfect sink that will work beautifully in your outdoor kitchen.
I don’t think I missed anything so get your creative juices flowing and make this summer the best summer ever for your outside entertaining. Create the best outdoor kitchen that will be the envy of your entire neighborhood!
