3 Things You Should Incorporate Into Your Outdoor Kitchen
For homeowners who love to entertain their friends and family, a custom outdoor kitchen has a lot of appeal. However, there is a major difference between deciding on getting a custom outdoor kitchen and actually installing one. You will need to think of the equipment you want your custom outdoor kitchen to have. Do you want extra storage? A wet bar? Additional refrigeration? To make sure you get the custom outdoor kitchen you’re dreaming of, here are three essential things you will want to be sure to include in your design.
1. Fire Pit
It is important to have a fire pit near your outdoor kitchen for a number of reasons. A fire pit is a great heat source that you will appreciate when everyone is hanging out around your outdoor kitchen during the chillier seasons. While you are cooking for your guests and making drinks, you can be sure that your friends and family are happy and comfortable. Gas fire pits are ideal for entertaining because you will not have to worry about consistently taking time away from cooking to put another log in the fire. You can create the ambiance you want for your custom built outdoor kitchen area without putting in the additional labor that other fire pits require.
A grill is obviously the most basic part of an outdoor kitchen. It can be difficult to make an outdoor kitchen without a grilling station. You can either choose a charcoal grill or opt for a gas grill. About 64% of people prefer to cook with gas grills. While we associate grills with cooking meat, they certainly do not have to function in that manner. You can grill both vegetables and fruit on your grill and really try your hand at a number of different menu items. Gas grills give you better control over the temperature, which allows you to cook your food perfectly. While a gas grill is not going to be the right choice for everyone, they certainly are more multipurpose than many give them credit for. Furthermore, if you decide to sell your house in the future, an outdoor kitchen adds equity to your house. Consider these factors as you decide whether or not to add a grilling station to your outdoor kitchen.
When you are cooking in your custom built outdoor kitchen, you do not want to have to go inside multiple times to get the food and supplies you need from your fridge. Incorporating a refrigerator into your outdoor kitchen helps to make cooking more convenient. When installing a refrigerator, you can also incorporate an ice maker. This will allow you to easily provide ice for beverages.
