With summer just around the corner, homeowners are starting to prepare for outdoor parties, picnic and gatherings. Outdoor kitchens have become increasingly popular for entertaining. Your outdoor spaces can be easily transformed into a relaxing spot for family’s and guests. To get the look, check out these 7 outdoor kitchens for inspiration!
1. Detail Orientated
Creating an outdoor kitchen that stands out because of its details can be tricky but beautiful. Adding large and small details will transform any space into a masterpiece. Beautiful glass doors, state-of-the-art stainless steel appliances, wood ceilings, floor tiling, etc. will offer a chic interior that is brought outdoors.
Creating a simple outdoor kitchen will evoke a calming and relaxing feel. With this simple space, adding a fire pit for pizza and other open-flame meals is perfect. Keep the other cooking inside. Add a table for eating and other furniture for relaxing.
3. Open Space
Building this outdoor kitchen off of a side of your house will help this space feel more open. Add a roof or an awning to cover this area but leave the sides open. An open-space outdoor kitchen gives you the security of an indoor room but merges with the outdoors.
If your back yard is large, build a separate, self-contained space for your outdoor kitchen. Make sure your space will flow with the rest of the surroundings by using stone or other natural material supports for the roof and beams.
5. Sleek and Modern
To create a sleek and modern feel for your outdoor kitchen, use stainless steel fixtures and man-made accessories. Granite countertop and tiles will also help create this contemporary feel.
6. Family Style
If you have a large family or entertain large parties, a family-style outdoor kitchen is for you. Install large countertops that can be used for prepping and preparing food and then used for sitting down and eating with many chairs. Add TVs, a bar station and an awning with open sides to complete this look.
7. Bar Top
Including a bar top in your outdoor kitchens allow your guests that opportunity to sit and talk while you are cooking. Many guests want to be close to the cook but stay away from the main cooking space. Putting beer or water on tap at the end of the bar will also allow flexibility for guests to help themselves. Add in a mini fridge, an ice maker and glasses at the end of the bar to complete the look.
