Last week, we had a little taste of the warm weather that is soon to come. It helped serve as a reminder that before we know it, spring and outdoor entertainment season will be back in action. In just a few short weeks, we’ll be able to begin enjoying all of our favorite outdoor activities, and that includes cooking out.
As the cooking out season is on the horizon, it’s about time we start preparing our outdoor kitchen spaces for the first barbecue of the year. With a little help from Copper Chef review, we share a few great ideas to make your outdoor kitchen the perfect space just in time for warm weather.
The Cooking Space
When designing the cooking area and apparatuses for your outdoor kitchen, keep in mind that appearance and performance go hand in hand. On one hand, you want to choose items that are aesthetically pleasing and fit into the design scheme that you’ve laid out. Maybe you want your kitchen to match the backyard space, complement the house, or simply stand on its own. On the other hand, you want to pick items that can withstand the outdoors and perform well. Unless most grills and other outdoor tools, you can’t store your outdoor kitchen away in a shed. It’s a fixture part of the backyard. In that case, choose materials and appliances that you know can withstand the elements from being outside.
Your kitchen should also be a functional space. Alongside the grill, many people also include a sink, cooktop, a bar, and an attached dining space on their list of must-haves. These items help make the difference between a designated grill place and an actual outdoor kitchen.
The Entertainment Space
Any good outdoor kitchen also takes into account entertainment. Isn’t the whole point of cooking outside to enjoy the great weather? So, you should include items that help you maximize your time outside as well. A bar is a great addition to an outdoor kitchen. You can stock it with anything, whether for adults or for children too. Incorporate enough seating and storage so that it minimizes foot traffic into your home. If you make your guests comfortable outside, they’ll rarely want to go inside for anything. Many people also include a television, but that’s extremely optional.
After you’ve built out your dream outdoor kitchen, be sure to decorate it nicely. One Copper Chef review showed us that copper accents make for great outdoor kitchen decorations. The color and durability of the pans really pops in the summertime.
