Planning The Perfect Outdoor Kitchen

Planning The Perfect Outdoor Kitchen

Entertaining family and friends outdoors has never been more popular, so it only seems right that outdoor kitchens would be on the rise. They are the perfect complement to a pool, and give you a great reason to spend time enjoying the outdoors.

When outfitting an outdoor kitchen, an important thing to remember is to stay true to your entertainment stye. If your friends and family are always requesting your “famous” pizza, then a pizza oven, not a grill, is the best choice for you. There are a variety of equipment and materials available. Here are a few key things you may want to consider incorporating into your outdoor kitchen space:

  • You will need equipment to cook your food outdoors.  Whether you prefer a basic grill, a fire pit, a fireplace or an outdoor oven, be sure it suits your lifestyle.
  • An outdoor sink connected to your home’s water supply made of stainless steel or ceramic are popular choices that are easy to maintain outdoors.
  • Countertops that can withstand the outdoor elements like granite are a must.  Careful planning will ensure the material you choose best suits your available space and environment.
  • Refrigerators or coolers are a great option to provide your guests with easy access to cool beverages on hot summer days.
  • Last but not least, consider adding a built-in bar top to your outdoor kitchen to provide additional seating for friends and family to dine together outdoors.

Because this is an addition to the pool area, have fun with the design but keep in mind the overall feel you are hoping to achieve with everything as one unit.  Contact the outdoor kitchen professionals at Arizona Rainfall to get started on the outdoor kitchen of your dreams.
