Do you dream of having the best outdoor cooking space on the block? Be the entertainer you’ve always aspired to be with these tips to level up your outdoor kitchen.
As the temperature rises, it’s understandable how no one would want to spend their cooking time sweating over a hot stove indoors. With an outdoor kitchen, that problem is easy to solve, not only that, but you will be able to make the warm nights spent with your family and friends even more beautiful.
It goes without saying it may require a few thousand for you to splurge on your new kitchen quarters, but it surely will be worth the expense.
Upgrade your grill. This is your main cooking station, you wouldn’t want it rusty and barely functioning. This isn’t even a splurge, it’s an investment. Investing on a new grill can make your dinner and barbeque parties seamless and delectable, you could even start your own outdoor dinner hosting or catering business. A standard grill will cost you $150 to $300, and a top-of-the-line outdoor range may be upwards of $1,500. If you’re actually thinking of starting a business with your grill, then you ought to go for the more expensive one, but if you really just want to upgrade your outdoor kitchen and cook good food for good people, the standard ones are the best for you.
Enhance your seating. Outdoor seating is another thing to consider. You’re not going to let your family and friends sit on your bare patio, are you? Appropriate seating is a must. Invest in an actual dining table and chairs. If you happen to have a few extras, you can get a few bean bag chairs or even get your hands on those fancy hanging chairs.
Add extras. Fairy lights for atmosphere, a popcorn and ice machine, a wine fridge, a fire-pit for warmth and coziness, heck even an outdoor movie screen if you want. The sky’s the limit. Whatever you want, as much as you can imagine, and afford. Go ahead and put ’em outside! Make sure they’re either waterproof if you have some sort of roof to hide them in when it rains.
Add a dash of yourself. Add more character to your design, and let people know that it’s yours by expressing yourself through your outdoor kitchen. Add whatever feels like something you would have in your kitchen, and not only fixtures that you deem that your guests would like. It’s yours, so make it feel like YOU.
