Summer is the best time of year to spend with family and friends outside, soaking up the sun, swimming in a pool, and enjoying barbeques. However if you’re the cook, you can miss out on a lot of the fun preparing the food inside when everyone else is outside. Outdoor kitchen areas are not only stunning, but allow you to spend time with your family and friends while preparing meals.
Outdoor kitchens can have seating areas, sinks, refrigerators, ovens, grills, or any combination of those. Basically anything you can put in a regular indoor kitchen, there is a version for outdoors. No more piles of dirt or puddles of water in your kitchen from hungry children coming in after playing. Outdoor access to beverages, meals, silverware, dishes, etc. can eliminate the unwanted outdoor elements from your indoor kitchen.
That’s why this week on Kitchen Bath Trends Pinterest we focused on pinning to our new “Outdoor Kitchen Areas” board. We love the layout of each outdoor kitchen we pinned, and while they all have the same key features, there’s always a special element that makes each one unique. For further entertainment, bar areas and televisions are great ways to bring even more life to your outdoor kitchen.
You can use stone or brick to create your outdoor kitchen, and depending on the climate you live in, homeowners have the choice to keep it covered or out in the open. There are so many customizable options for outdoor kitchens which will ensure that the space is designed to fit your lifestyle and family interests.
