More often than not, an outdoor kitchen is not used to actually cook the dish; but it’s just fine if you want to fill the space with some essentials and have it functions beautifully. Whether you’re planning to have a daytime barbecue or an evening get-together with your family, upgrading your kitchen provides you with everything you need.
While it’s not necessary to place all the sink and fridge and stove outside, here are some kitchen essentials for your outdoor space.
What’s the purpose of building an outdoor kitchen without a grill? I rarely see a grill inside a house, but placing it on the patio allows easy cooking anytime you entertain guests. Since installing a whole set of stove outside is troublesome, a simple grill island with the built-in burner is perfect for a barbecue or grilling steak or heat your leftovers for a meal outside.
Instead of blazing the entire patio, you need to carefully install task lighting to complete the tasks on your kitchen; be it cooking, prep the foods, or blending drinks. Smart direct illumination can provide adequate light on the cooking surface.
If you plan to build an open-space kitchen, you’re going to need more. Installing a large pergola or a freestanding umbrella is essential to provide shade during the day as well as protecting your utensils from direct sunlight. Better still, build your kitchen area under the overhanging roof.
4. Freestanding Storage
Essential kitchen is used to hide propane inventory or grill. Since the outside kitchen is unlikely to be permanent, use a self-contained storage made of wood on wheels so you can move it. Weatherfill storage with weatherproof stains for a better lifespan.
5. Wine Refrigerator
A piece of must-have equipment in an outdoor kitchen; wine refrigerator that serves well for guests entertainers. You don’t have to run back and forth to the cellar just to fetch another wine bottle. Built-in refrigerator under the counter can keep the wine cold especially when you only have a small space.Arrange the outdoor kitchen essentials to help you have a highly functional space to prepare occasional meals for family and friends.
