The warm season is upon us, and that means many people will begin spending more and more time outdoors. Being outside and getting fresh air is great for your physical and mental health, so you might be looking for ways to spend even more time outside. One of the ways you can make use of your outdoor living space is by having an outdoor kitchen installed. The cornerstone of any outdoor kitchen is the grill, but there are plenty of other amazing additions to consider when you’re designing your outdoor kitchen.
It’s a scientific fact—everyone loves pizza. Pizza is a fairly simple dish, and it’s always a great crowd-pleaser. Whether you’re just cooking for your family or you’re hosting a gathering, having a pizza oven is a guaranteed way to make everyone happy. Having a dedicated pizza oven will give you quality homemade pizzas that are cooked to perfection, and it’ll make cooking delicious homemade pizzas a cinch.
A side burner is a must for an outdoor kitchen that requires versatility. These add burners to your outdoor kitchen, allowing you to cook with various pots and pans. Grilling is amazing, but there are so many amazing side dishes you can make if you have access to a side burner in your outdoor kitchen. These are especially important if you intend to cook in your outdoor kitchen often.
While it’s important to think about various cooking appliances, don’t forget about food storage! If you’re cooking often or cooking in large amounts, you may quickly discover that your indoor refrigerator just isn’t big enough to hold all of the food you’re making. In addition to the extra space, storing food in an outdoor refrigerator makes it easier to access, so your outdoor kitchen is much more convenient to use.
Many outdoor kitchens feature open shelving, but access doors are critical for spaces where you want to store items that need to be protected from the elements. These doors create closed cabinets where you can stash more sensitive items and ingredients that need to be kept out of the wind, rain, hail, and snow.
A cooking space isn’t much good if it doesn’t provide an area for prep work. Every outdoor kitchen should have a built-in sink with a dedicated prep area. It allows for easier food prep, easier clean-up, and overall better hygiene.
