It is commonly believed that not only the food but also the surroundings matter.Nothing beats the pleasure of dining outside in a pleasant weather amidst the greenery, beside a pool, under the twinkling stars or simple sunny morning. If you are planning to remodel your backyard or simply wondering where to place the huge grill you just bought, an outdoor kitchen plans could be just the right thing for you.
Strategy to design outdoor kitchen
You can start by building a patio (deck) of bricks or wood to a create platform for your kitchen in the backyard. Location of the kitchen is very important. There should be a flow of space from your main living area to the outdoor kitchen and commuting to the outdoor kitchen should be hassle free. If the patio is close to the pool some space should be provided for commuting to and from the pool.
A separate entrance to the house would be preferred. The outdoor kitchen should be close to main indoor kitchen, preferably separated by a patio door. The kitchen can host a raised wooden platform with wooden cabinets, a grill and a sink. The platform can be used as the preparation area, whereas the cabinets can be used to keep the cutlery meant for the purpose of outdoor dining. And if you believe that a dinner is not complete without a glass of fine wine, adding a mini bar to your outdoor kitchen plan would be a great idea.
