Kitchen Ideas. Saturday , February 10th , 2018 - 22:08:35 PM
Before you actually begin building, you will probably want at least a rough blueprint of what your kitchen design will look like and you might even want to chalk out or tape out the actual dimensions in the area where your kitchen will go. This will give you an opportunity to get a feel of how your kitchen will look and how functional it will be.
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.
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.
Now that you've chosen your design, you need to choose your appliances! A grill or smoker is a necessity. You'll need to decide if you want a gas or charcoal grill, and what type fits best in your budget. Grills can range from very affordable to very expensive. Other kitchen ideas include sinks, refrigerators, extra burners and more. Some people opt to put in a refrigerator beneath their prep area. Adding extra gas burners can help you prepare a well-rounded meal. Whether or not you need burners depends on how much you anticipate using your outdoor kitchen.
You are next going to need to decide if you are going to leave the building of your outdoor kitchen in the hands of experts or if this is going to be a do it yourself project. Once these decisions are made and you know roughly what features you can and cannot afford then it time for you to start looking at outdoor kitchen designs and plans in order to get a few ideas about how you want your own outdoor kitchen to look.
You can begin by looking through magazines dedicated to homes, home decorating, architecture, and fine living. Start a scrap book by clipping photos you like, or just one aspect of a kitchen you find appealing. Don't be afraid to save pictures of even small design ideas, such as: cabinet hardware you like, backsplash accent ideas, or special cabinet detailing. It's these little items that can truly customize your kitchen and make it your own. It won't take long before you have a good idea of exactly what features you would like in your kitchen.
