There is nothing like spending time out of the house when the weather permits. Entertaining outdoors is a great way to spend time with family and friends and you don’t have to go to a fancy resort to be surrounded by the most incredible outdoor indulgences available.
Having the right setup can really make a difference in each person’s experience and there are so many great products geared for the ultimate backyard / outdoor kitchen setups.
Personally, I think it is best to make a list of all of the must-haves and prioritize them based on having a budget and of course aesthetics. Today’s fully equipped outdoor kitchens have all of the creature comforts and innovation most indoor setups have.
After you have decided on what to include narrow down the materials you want like the stones and bricks, types of wood, lighting, appliances, and electronics, you’re going to need a TV!
Also, adding ample refrigeration space and an ice machine can be really smart as well especially if you are in a more temperate climate. Finally, look at as many pictures of the many great designs out there that you can find.
It is so much easier to show a builder or architect a design concept when you have it to show them when you sit down and choose a direction to go. So Furniture Fashion has put together 100 outdoor kitchen designs to give you inspiration about what could be in your own outdoor kitchen.
When considering furnishings, it is important to make sure the furniture you include is good for outdoor use if it will be exposed to the elements especially direct sunlight.
