Plans for outdoor kitchens are built around having fun. Take outdoor cooking! Enjoy the beautiful weather and enjoy some of the finest fire-grilled foods that you can taste. But note, the success of your outdoor kitchen depends a great deal on having cleverly built outdoor kitchen plans. Have a look here.
Start by strategically positioning your outside kitchen in connection with any other elements of the backyard, such as the patio, garden or pool. Your outdoor kitchen designs should have a natural flow of space from the grill to the seating area. Consider them all as though you are designing a natural flow of traffic between “rooms.” Leave an open plan so that when they get hungry or bored, the kids can walk to and from the pool.
Simple indoor and outdoor entry, whether through the patio door or even an open window, is a good idea. But most importantly, don’t forget the kitchen! Often, for fear of smoke or flames, it is simple to locate the grill in an isolated area. Lots of modern grills have fans or exhaust to minimise smoke, so feel free to plan your kitchen island outside with lots of counter seats on the grill side!
If you plan to host a mini bar outside, it’s a good idea to integrate a fridge into your outside kitchen plans. The refrigerator will keep the drinks cold and accessible; it is also useful for food preparation. Add a touch of authenticity to extend the bar theme by adding beer dispensers, wine chillers, martini bars, maybe even an ice maker! To get an idea of how to build an island to seat your thirsty friends and family, look at outside kitchen plans online. To give your outdoor kitchen a “real” bar feel, don’t forget small touches, such as a built in bottle opener or a towel holder.
Most notably, in recent years, the trend has been to try to replicate the outdoor feel of a typical indoor kitchen. If this is your intention, then an outdoor refrigerator is a requirement. If you have a fridge built and you want to cook food outdoors, having the sink and food storage area between the fridge and the grill will be a strategic setup for your outdoor kitchen plans; this would follow the usual phase of food prep. For outdoor purposes, consider having a collection of utensils and instruments to hold strictly.
Almost always, outdoor kitchen plans include a barbecue. With a conventional charcoal or gas grill, or even a hybrid grill, you can go. Hybrid grills appear to be more costly, but the additional expense can be worth the flexibility. The choice of electric grills is also present. Remember the fact that preferences are expanding if you scoff at this trend.
In order to satisfy the increase in popularity of Chinese, Indian, and other Asian cuisines, people crave flexibility on the grill. The use of gas or electric grills often mimics indoor cooking, extending the repertoire of outdoor cooking from steaks to stir-fry. Outdoors, prepare a popular lobster bake. Or get a wood oven built. Think of how happy it would be for your kids to eat oven-baked pizza cooked and served by the pool.
