Outdoor Kitchen / July 7, 2018 / Agathe Marier
Sooner or later summer comes to an end. I dont know about you but I love to grill in the winter too. Try a toe kick heater. A toe kick heater is built into the bottom of the grill structure to keep your feet warm in the winter. Just as an umbrella sleeve will keep you comfortable in the summer a toe kick heater will let you cook outside all winter long. The subtle innovative design will allow you to stand by the grill until the food is well done. (Remember heat rises. Toe kick heaters will not only keep your feet warm but also make sure you dont freeze anything else off either.)
Another great costsaver for natural stone outdoor kitchens and grills is the use of 2inch ThinStone Veneer. ThinStone veneer covers the outer perimeters of a structure with a thin layer of natural stone giving the outdoor kitchen or grill the appearance of being made entirely of natural stone. For those looking to save money thinstone veneer creates the perfect appearance of a full 4 natural stone veneer but cost half as much because it requires significantly less labor. You your friends and your family will not know the difference between full depth stone and thinstone veneer.
If you decide that an outdoor kitchen close to your house or even under a deck is the best option there are actually outdoor ventilation hoods that can help you circulate the air and keep heat from building up on certain parts of your home. Vikings Outdoor Hood even has a heat sensor so it knows when to turn on or off. Not to mention it features the same stainless steel finish as the rest of Vikings appliances giving a sharp and modern look to your kitchen. If youre really brave and are completely building your outdoor kitchen on your own there are plenty of great doityourself articles online that can guide you.
