Kitchen Ideas. Saturday , February 10th , 2018 - 21:38:35 PM
There are several options when planning your outdoor kitchen. The most common design styles include the basic island, a \"U\" shaped island and an \"L\" shaped island. What you put into your kitchen island is up to you. Some outdoor kitchen ideas for the basic island would be to include a grill, a sink and a little work space. This is adequate for occasional light cooking. A \"U\" shaped island may have room for a grill, a sink, some storage and some work space. Because of the compact shape, it would fit in a small yard and allow you to visit with guests while you are cooking. \"L\" shaped islands tend to be larger, giving you a lot more room for food preparation. A grill could be located on the short side of the \"L\" while the longer side may contain a sink, a refrigerator, storage and other accessories.
If you decide on an island, there are more decisions to make. You can have one custom made for you, or you can use a pre-fabricated island. Customizing your outdoor kitchen can allow you to go more upscale with granite, slate or other unique materials. Pre-fabricated islands are less expensive and come in a variety of configurations and finishes. Be sure to choose materials that will hold up well in your climate.
Kitchen cabinet makers, appliance makers, and countertops makers all have their products on display at Home and Garden shows which tour major cities. Spending a day or a weekend and one of these shows will provide you with ideas on the latest kitchen products and design ideas in the market place. You can come home from a home and garden show with brochures and samples enough to give you all the ideas you need to design you kitchen.
Don't forget the lighting! Outdoor kitchen ideas for lighting include ambiance lighting with soft white or colored bulbs, solar lighting and LED lighting that can give you the brightness you may need to cook after the sun goes down.
Many communities have a 'Parade of Homes' where the local builders demonstrate their skills in building homes. Walking through these show homes will give you a good feel of what different ideas and concepts look like in actual settings. You can also see many different styles of kitchens and ideas on display in home improvement centers and cabinet makers' showrooms. Pictures are great to find kitchen ideas, but experiencing real kitchens gives you a better feel for the actual finished concept.
Once you've made the decision to remodel your kitchen, the first step is to put together ideas on what you want your new kitchen to look like. You can get design ideas from many different places, and you can pick and choose specific design ideas from differing sources to create the kitchen you've always wanted for your home.
