6 Essentials For An Unbeatable Outdoor Kitchen
1: Start With The Basics
2: Add Cooking Versatility
3: Enjoy A Cold One
Outdoor ice makers, wine coolers, kegerators, and beverage centers are great additions to your outdoor kitchen, especially if you entertain. You and your guests will love having ice cold beverages, including draft beer, for whenever the mood strikes.
4: Keep It Organized
Keep everything you need for grilling conveniently stored in your outdoor kitchen with storage components, so it's there the next time you grill. Storage components also give you easy access to your gas lines and plumbing.
5: Plan To Insulate & Ventilate
Safety is the most important thing to consider for your outdoor kitchen. Insulated jackets are a must when installing cooking appliances into a combustible island, and vent panels are required for proper gas venting. If installing your island under a covered patio with limited airflow, you should definitely consider a vent hood.
6: Pull Up A Seat
Complete your outdoor kitchen with a patio dining set and outdoor seating area. If your layout includes a bar height counter you’ll want outdoor bar stools too. To keep warm during cool evenings consider a fire pit or patio heater.
