What to Consider When Building an Outdoor Kitchen
Outdoor Kitchens San Antonio & Austin
Entertaining outdoors is a popular pastime, so it only seems right that outdoor kitchens would be on the rise. They are the perfect complement to the pool, not to mention a great way to spend time with the family outdoors, while enjoying food hot off the grill.
The most important thing to remember when planning your outdoor kitchen is that everything needs to be waterproofed. Even if you have an overhead covering, it’s not 100 percent reliable. With that said, here are a few things to consider when choosing to build an outdoor kitchen:
- The type of grill you are looking for. You will need to consider the size, features and type of fuel you want to use.
- An outdoor sink connected to your home’s water supply. Popular choices that are easier to maintain outdoors are stainless steel or ceramic.
- Countertop and cabinet materials. Countertop materials often include brick or stone, and cabinet materials need to be thought about carefully. Because some woods are susceptible to rot, a popular choice might be stainless steel.
- Last but not least, think about the right kind of covering you want. Shelter is important in keeping you out of the elements but still able to enjoy cooking outdoors.
Because this is an addition to the pool area, have fun with the design but keep in mind the overall feel you are hoping to achieve with everything as one unit.
Remember, Father’s Day is right around the corner. Outdoor kitchens make the dad in your life, the ultimate grillmaster. Contact the outdoor kitchen experts at Texas Pools & Patios to get started on the outdoor kitchen of your dreams.
