Add An Outdoor Kitchen To Your Patio
We are blessed in Raleigh, Durham and the greater Triangle area to have four seasons to enjoy our great North Carolina outdoors. Having a deck, porch, or patio to spend time on in this environment is priceless. The more time you can arrange to spend outside, the better. With that in mind, you should highly consider adding an outdoor kitchen to your patio. Triangle Deck Builders can custom build an outdoor kitchen that will take your patio to the next level.
Elements of an Outdoor Kitchen
If you are not familiar with outdoor kitchens, they are an exciting feature of many yards, and they are growing in popularity. There are some similarities to the traditional indoor kitchen, but of course, the location does require them to be built differently, as well. Most outdoor kitchens can have at least three elements in common: Counter-space A grill or barbecue A sink Other features may be included, but these are sufficient for a basic outdoor kitchen area. Upgrades can be added that will enhance it further, too. You can also incorporate things like: Outdoor refrigerators Lighting Shelving A bar area An oven
The Basic Layout
As initially described, the core elements of an outdoor kitchen are the counters, the sink, and a grill. It is recommended to put the counters around three feet high and have them extend to cover either side of both the sink and the grill. This gives you room to place things and do prep work while working at either of these areas. Underneath the counters, you can put some shelving, and maybe a small water heater if you don’t want to pipe in hot water from the house. We can help customize this design to fit both your preferences and the space you are working with.
The Benefits of an Outdoor Kitchen
To many outdoorsmen and women, this probably goes without saying, but some need to be convinced of the benefits of having one of these amazing areas. Think of all the time people spend going in and out of the house carrying plates. Think of all the prep work that needs to be done indoors, in the kitchen, that could just as easily be done outdoors if you only had the equipment there. Think of how often one person needs to sacrifice his or her evening to prepare food, while everyone else is outside laughing and having fun. It can take all the joy out of hosting patio parties. That doesn’t need to be the case.
