In planning your outdoor kitchen you will need to consider how much you will use your outdoor kitchen and whether it will be just a small part of your deck or patio or a fully functional outdoor kitchen. Today however outdoor kitchens have made entertaining more convenient as well as luxurious. Now you can have all the accoutrements of any indoor kitchen all year around no matter what part of the country you live in. The latest products on the market include luxury grills equipped with all the capabilities of stovetop cooking. Outdoor kitchen setups include kitchen islands sinks refrigerators wet bars and dishwashers.
If convenience is a high priority for you then dont forget about the refrigerator. Fridges come in many sizes including small enough to fit under your countertops. These refrigerators can hold your steaks dogs and burgers until youre ready to cook. They also work great for storing condiments and drinks while youre cooking. All of these elements may not be entirely necessary for every situation but if you have the room and the budget youll really want to go all out. Remember to check prices online and comparison shop for your viking appliances and dont be afraid to ask the dealer to price match.
Next you must choose the type of finish for your stone countertop. First of all never use polished stone for an outdoor kitchen countertop. The surface will blind you with reflected sunlight and always look dirty. Allow the natural stone to look natural and it will enhance the style of the outdoor kitchen. Some possible finishes for a natural stone countertop include honed flamed and brushed. A honed natural stone finish features a smooth surface without the horrible reflection of a polished finish.
