Outdoor kitchens and outdoor dining spaces have come a long way. Manufacturers have created innovative outdoor products to turn the backyard into a new cooking and dining experience for homeowners. Grill areas of yesterday have now been transformed into complete outdoor kitchen stations that can contain any modern amenity such as wet bars, refrigerators, ice makers, pantries, warming drawers, trash bins, coolers and much more. Along with the outdoor kitchens come custom outdoor dining tables and bars that have a large variety of sizes, material options, and amenities such as decorative fire features.
Outdoor Kitchens, Bars, and BBQ Grills
How can you and your family utilize an Outdoor kitchen and Dining area?
Eating and cooking outdoors opens a wealth of possibilities for any family.
1. Enjoyment of the open space and outdoors –
With all the hustle and bustle of the everyday routine, nothing is more relaxing then shutting off the T.V, putting away the electronics and taking in the fresh air and the beauty of nature during your next family meal.
2. Allows the cook to be involved at the party –
How many parties does the cook get stuck in the kitchen while everybody is elsewhere. Having both in one area allows the cook to be included while preparing the food.
3. Kids parties –
Nobody enjoys cleaning up the messes or the damage done to flooring during a kids party. Break out the paper ware that can be thrown in the trash right after, and hose off that patio for a quick and easy cleanup.
4. Neighborhood parties or sports functions –
Make your home the talk of the town by creating a back yard dining, cooking and recreational space for all to congregate and enjoy during that next big event.
What contractors are involved for a typical Outdoor Kitchen project?
Landscape contractors have long sought ways to improve upon traditional paving options. These features vary depending on the amount of services needed.
The typical contractors and retailers needed for such projects are:
– Landscape Architect to design the space
– Masons to build the base of the kitchen
– Stone fabricator for the counter tops
– Grill distributor for the Grill and appliances
– Electrician for appliances and outlets
– Plumber for gas and water hook ups
– Hardscaper for possible patio work
– Landscaper to repair any lawn damage
As you can see these spaces can get quite involved and costly if the customer has to hire each of these contractors individually. It is also a task scheduling and overlooking each of them which can make for a long, stressful process.
