Outdoor Kitchen / July 22, 2018 / Agathe Marier.
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.
Stone or other types of backsplashes can stain easily and be a pain to clean. Make your life easier after cooking a delicious meal. Use glass tile on the backsplash for a quick and easy cleanup. Remember standing in front of the grill this summer? The heat was sometimes unbearable. The inclusion of an umbrella sleeve on your outdoor kitchen and grill provides a simple solution to the hot sun. Relax in the shade as you cook a nice meal on a summer afternoon. If thats not enough plug a portable fan into the electrical outlets suggested in Number 8. Either way you will be able to comfortably cook on your outdoor kitchen and grill all through the summer regardless of the heat.
When deciding what kind of elements you are going to use in your outdoor kitchen first decide how large you want it to be. If you have the time and money to spend a large and elaborate kitchen full of outdoorsafe cookware countertops sinks and appliances can really make your outdoor space shine. If on the other hand you prefer a smaller and more intimate cooking experience you need only choose the smaller versions of these appliances and some omissions wont necessarily take away from the functionality too much. Luckily Vikings appliances come in many price ranges and sizes one of which is sure to fit your outdoor kitchen needs.
It used to be that outdoor entertaining conjured up the familiar image of the picnic lunch at the park. You only needed a picnic basket thermos paper plates and plastic utensils. Or if you wanted to be able to host an outdoor luncheon or dinner you would toss some items on a barbecue pit out in the backyard and flip burgers and hotdogs. Cooking on a grill is a great way to entertain outdoors. However it is a nuisance to have to go back and forth from the kitchen to the patio. That is way outdoor kitchens have become more and more popular.
