Kitchen Ideas. Monday , February 12th , 2018 - 04:39:53 AM
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.
Believe it or not the best place to start is with you and your family. Make a list of those things that you feel you will most need in your outdoor kitchen and then list those things that you think will be beneficial. For example, most families agree a good grill is a must at backyard, but do also want to make breads, pies and pizza out of doors? If so then you are going to want a wood burning oven as well. You might even want to include an open fire pit for guests to gather around, a dining set and of course cabinets and counter tops.
If you are remodeling your old kitchen, you may be somewhat limited in the design options available to you. This may be especially true if your house is older and your kitchen space is smaller. This is where consulting with a kitchen designer can be very beneficial in helping you pull together the look that you want for your kitchen. You can show the designer your portfolio of kitchen ideas, and together you can design your dream kitchen. The designer will have the experience to steer you toward the design features that will work well together, and which ideas need to be discarded. After seeing which kitchen ideas you prefer, a good designer will introduce you to ideas that you may not have considered to compliment your basic ideas. A kitchen designer will be able to maximize the efficiency of your kitchen by creating the best layout within your existing kitchen space, or maybe rework your available space to make your kitchen more functional.
Finally, when you are going through your outdoor kitchen ideas, don't forget seating and dining room for your family and friends. It is more fun to cook if you can join in the fun when you are entertaining. Choose seating that is comfortable and positioned for dining. Bar stools may work well if you have a high counter top. Another option is to locate an outdoor dining table nearby. If you live in an area where it gets colder in winter, you may want to include a fireplace of some sort to keep everyone warm while you enjoy your outdoor kitchen. Likewise if you have hot summers, you may want to include either umbrellas or some other covering to shade the area. If you get a lot of rain, be sure you have a waterproof grill cover to protect your investment.
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.
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.
