Outdoor Kitchens – Latest Home Addition Trend
The recent rise in popularity of outdoor kitchens really comes as no surprise. When you think about the long list of possible additions or renovations a person can choose for their home, having a place for cooking outdoors is a pretty great thing to have. It cuts down on the time required to run back and forth and allows you to relax and hang out with your guests.
But really, it is the ultimate way to enjoy the exterior of your home, summer and making memories. But before signing up for this great renovation there are some things you should think about. This includes making the decision about who you want to hire as your contractor.
What You Need to Know
Just like your interior kitchen, you will have plenty of choices to make. Some people install a small exterior kitchen just to cover the basics. While some homeowners opt for the biggest and most elaborate kitchen area, for the outside of your home possible.
- A food prep surface / countertop
- Good lighting
- Shelter / overhead roofing for the chef (in some cases even a market umbrella will suffice)
- The cooking surface
Some people are fine with their grill while others want a full setup, a smoker, a brick oven and anything else they can add. You can also include a sink and other appliances. You may want to enclose the entire area or at least have a roof, or you may not.
This is why it is important to work with a professional team of experts. A real pro will be able to show you all of your options and listen to what your goals are. From there they can help you make the best choices possible based on your wants, needs, style and budget. A smart planner can also allow for you to add more features down the road and expand your outdoor kitchens options.
