Outdoor Kitchen / July 20, 2018 / Yseult LeBatelier
Including low voltage lighting in an outdoor kitchen will safely create a usable cooking space after the sun goes down and highlight the bold features of the structure therefore increasing the overall value of your outdoor kitchen and grill. After all not even the greatest chefs can cook in the dark. For added style to the welllit backsplash glass tile can be used for color and design. Glass tile also meets the backsplash criteria of being nonporous and heatresistant both necessary qualities for a backsplash that will have to withstand extreme heat and splashing in the kitchen.
A multipart series to provide you with outdoor kitchen design inspiration and guidelines. The recent popularity of outdoor kitchens is expected to continue being a hot trend. Not only are the warmer southern climates featuring a rise in outdoor kitchen growth but the colder northern climates are too. They offer a good return on investment (ROI) should you decide to sell your home and they also provide you with an enjoyable and functional outdoor living space.
When it comes to creating your outdoor kitchen the possibilities are endless. It can be large or small...from a simple portable or modular unit i.e. a grill with countertop space on either side to a grand customdesigned fully functional outdoor kitchen/living space complete with grill(s) refrigerators freezers sinks counters and lots and lots of storage space. They can be designed near pools on patios within gardens or almost anywhere that you desire to have an enjoyable outdoor living space.
