Your Lifestyle

The first thing you need to consider is how often you will use your new outdoor kitchen. Building an outdoor kitchen is a major home improvement project. It can involve expanding your outdoor living space, adding furniture and appliances, and running power, water, and gas lines. We recommend adding an outdoor kitchen if making good memories is a priority.

The Features You Need

You also need to think about what features you want for your outdoor kitchen. Many outdoor kitchens have a mini refrigerator for beverages, a direct gas line and a grill, and a sink. After these basics, you can add more things as space and budget allows. For instance, we can add a bar station, doors and drawers, a TV, speakers, a fireplace, and ice makers. We also carry a full range of outdoor furniture, so we can add as many beautiful tables and chairs you need.

Space and Maintenance

Lastly, you need to think about space and maintenance. An outdoor kitchen greatly increases your available living area, so you may need to expand your patio or deck space. You might also need to add an overhead covering to protect your new outdoor kitchen. You also need to remember that outdoor kitchens require periodic maintenance. You need to make sure to drain the supply lines in winter and wash and seal the stone facades.
