Summer Cooking With Outdoor Kitchens & Grills
When building a new home or remodeling your current home, an outdoor kitchen is becoming a popular option among home owners. Relaxing on the deck with a beverage while the grill is going is what many dream of having in their backyard. With so many options available, you can have your dream outdoor space for the whole family.
Adding Value With An Outdoor Remodel
“The al fresco movement is transforming back yards across the country as homeowners create outdoor kitchens that finally live up to their name,” said backyard design expert Paul Lafrance of HGTV’s “Decked Out” series. “If you count yourself among the homeowners ready to undertake a deck upgrade, integrating interior kitchen ideas into your outdoor living space is a sure-fire way to bring fun, function and added value to your home.”
In fact, an outdoor kitchen project can provide homeowners up to a 130 percent return on their initial investment, according to the National Association of the Remodeling Industry. Our home design center staff can help you create a stylish and functional outdoor kitchen.
Ideas For Outdoor Kitchens
Planning for each functional zone is necessary to maximize the effectiveness of the outdoor space for cooking and entertaining activities. Similar to the indoor kitchen, outdoor kitchens consist of functional zones, which include hot zones, cold zones, wet zones and dry zones.
When you’re cooking, you need space at each workstation to set things down. One of the most frequent outdoor kitchen design shortcomings is insufficient counter space.
Many homeowners want a fully functional outdoor kitchen that operates independently from the indoor kitchen, which requires even more storage space to keep pots, pans, utensils and cutting boards outside. Outdoor cabinetry needs to be ready to withstand the elements. To handle rain and keep items dry, weather-tight options are available.
