When super bowl Sunday arrives, what is the first thing people bring up? They are talking about having an outdoor BBQ or outdoor cooking event. To do this, you must have an outdoor kitchen to do this cooking in. Having an outdoor kitchen is one of those status signs to show people not only are you able to afford a kitchen on the inside but the outside as well. This is why much more consideration is needed for the outdoor kitchen, as this is supposed to be the showstopper. It’s to impress people with the design and the tools which need to be displayed so everyone will see and wish they had the same version.
Below we will discuss the outdoor kitchen and the type of designs you will choose when constructing your own.
What is an outdoor kitchen?
Of course, the name implies the obvious: an outdoor kitchen is a kitchen outside the house. It is common in some affluent areas to see homes with both an inside and outdoor kitchen, which is used predominantly for parties or any special occasion. The outdoor kitchen is usually far from the house, under a tent or pavilion. It’s to be a separation from the home, and an area where you cook special food, things you would not usually cook on the inside. Not only does it have the cooking equipment of a kitchen, but it also will have a dining area equally decked out to match the kitchen.
Different types of outdoor kitchen designs
Even with outdoor kitchens, there are many different designs at your fingertips. Below we will discuss a few options available to you when making the outdoor kitchen of your dreams.
- Eat-in Patio Kitchen – This design is perfect for those who work from home. Not only does it provide you with kitchen appliances to make a quick snack, but it also gives you a table to eat the food and finish up some work.
- Backyard bar kitchen – Again, outdoor kitchens are there to entertain on special occasions. What better way to entertain guests than with an outdoor bar? Filled with the same kitchen appliances, add a bar of your favorite late-night beverages and a table to enjoy.
- Swim-up bar kitchen- This two-sided kitchen mixes the bar concept and kitchen concept and adds to the swimming pool. So you choose to be on the dry side and enjoy some food and beverages, or you get in the pool and swim up on the wet side. There are seats aligned along the bar underwater, so you are able to take a seat and enjoy the water while talking to the other guest.
The imagination for outdoor kitchens has exploded in recent decades. These are only a few options at your disposal; with the help of a contractor, you are sure to find something suited for you and the people you will be inviting over in the near future.
