When the weather is good, nothing beats having a meal al fresco! Enjoying the fresh air and sunshine as a family is one of life’s little luxuries, and what better way to maximize the experience than with an outdoor kitchen? Here are five factors to help make your dream outdoor space a reality:
Homeowners want outdoor furniture that works for them– nothing that will get damaged by excessive sun or rain and heavy enough to withstand a windy day. Additionally, more and more customers are seeking out pieces made ethically and sustainably.
A splash of color
Don’t shy away from color– oftentimes it can be just the thing to complement a fun outdoor space! If your home has a particular color palette, incorporate that into your outdoor kitchen space as well to truly make it feel like an extension of your home.
Nothing beats the outdoor experience when you add a few touches of indoor comfort. Add a TV or sound system if you’re looking to entertain outside as well as some comfy couches and chairs.
Keep in mind that all lighting should serve a purpose– you’ll want task lighting for your kitchen space to illuminate your work, but ambient lighting in the seating area to set a warm tone. Waterproof twinkle lights, as well as lanterns and candles, can help set the mood and turn your backyard gatherings into cozy, intimate moments.
An outdoor kitchen is the perfect place to add those special touches that might not fit in a normal kitchen! Whether it’s a brick pizza oven or a wine fridge, a campfire pit or a state-of-the-art grill, pick a piece that you know will be worth the investment and enjoy it for years to come!
