With COVID-19 creating the need for social distancing and isolation, having an outdoor kitchen for grilling, cooking, and eating has never been more important. A well-designed patio area can give you a space to host family and friends for socially-distant gatherings.
Visualization of the space that you are working with allows you to truly get the most out of the area that you can. This step gives you the chance to plan an outdoor kitchen area with everything you need for an outdoor gathering. There are plenty of useful components to consider for your new outdoor kitchen. This includes storage, such as cabinets, and features, such as a grill, fryer, or refrigerator, would work best in your space.
There are two grades of stainless steel in outdoor kitchens: 304 and 316. In the suburban backyard, a 304 grade is the way to go for cabinets and appliances. Where there is sea or saltwater, a 316 grade, which is a marine-grade material, should be used. Cabinets and appliances need to be cleaned and maintained no matter what grade is used to resist corrosion.
Besides stainless, outdoor cabinets come in various colors such as yellow, green, blue, which can make your space feel and look larger. There are cabinet options such as drawers and shelves. It is a great way to add a storage area, and the countertop offers extra space to prepare and serve food.
Avoid fencing or bordering in the space and leave your outdoor kitchen open to the outdoors. Thus, you will have created a bright open area that will feel large and inviting.
The team at Magazi Kitchens and Baths and A.G.Building and Remodeling would like to wish a Happy Father’s Day to all of the amazing Dads. Happy grilling!
