Building an Outdoor Kitchen as the Perfect Addition to your Home Right in Time for Spring
With spring officially here, flowers are blooming and warm weather has arrived. What better way to wind down after a long day at work or relax over the weekend than building an outdoor kitchen as an addition to your home? An outdoor kitchen gives you the opportunity to enjoy the weather while you eat, as well as entertain guests. Convinced? Great! The biggest question you now have to answer is where to build the outdoor kitchen, meaning what will be its proximity to your home? K&N Sales is here with some useful tips to help you make the right decision for your situation. The â€œRightâ€ Location When it comes to an outdoor kitchen we know there is no â€˜rightâ€™ location. It all comes down to your preference and personal style. Close To Your Home Choosing to put your custom-designed outdoor kitchen close to your home is a popular choice. It offers coverage for your kitchen, but remains separate. It is easy to extend roofing to cover your outdoor kitchen, as well as run utility lines from the main home. If you plan on doing a lot of outdoor grilling and cooking, make sure you try to stay away from windows and doors as you do not want your homeâ€™s interior to smell like smoke. This option offers convenience and is often the more cost-effective method. Stand Alone A stand alone kitchen is a wonderful option if you plan on implementing a full outdoor living space, dining area and seating included. Placing this style of kitchen further from your home presents great design options and more flexibility since you are working with a larger space. You should also try to find unique storage options in order to avoid having to walk back to your home frequently. Finding space for pots, pans and utensils will make entertaining outdoors a breeze. While often more expensive, this option gives you the opportunity to design a stunning outdoor kitchen.
