Taking the Kitchen Outdoors

Take your parties and family gatherings to the next level by creating an outdoor kitchen in your Gilbert backyard. With outdoor kitchens there are endless possibilities when it comes to designs.

 

The Planning Process

It is important that before you start any kind of work on your outdoor kitchen, that you take some time to plan out exactly how you want your outdoor kitchen to look, feel, and function. Think about how you want it laid out, what style you want, and how you want the space to function. Planning an outdoor kitchen is just as important as planning a kitchen remodel, you want to make sure you have all the details figured out and a budget in place as well.

 

Ask Yourself

During the planning process you have thought about what style of outdoor kitchen you would like and how you want it laid out, but to help you with those decisions you have to ask yourself some simple questions. You will want to ask yourself, how often do I cook outside, what do I cook the most of, how many guests will I want to have over, what type of grill do I want, gas, electric, or charcoal, do I want to be able to store food, drinks, and dishes outside, do I want to be able to wash my hands and utensils outside, and do I want just a cooking an eating area or do I want an entertainment area as well? These are all very important questions that will help you come up with the perfect design for your Gilbert outdoor kitchen.

 

Choosing the Right Materials

When designing your outdoor kitchen you want to make sure that you choose materials that are able to withstand the climate and weather in which you live in. You will want to choose durable materials such as stainless steel, slate, tile, or stucco. Be sure to choose water resistant materials as well, it might not rain a lot where you live, but when it does you will be glad your outdoor kitchen will be protected.
