Outdoor Living beyond the walls of your home outdoors has become one of the hottest trends in the past five years and now is headed into over drive with the emergence of Outdoor Kitchens becoming extremely popular. The reason why people are seeking as much time as possible recreating while still being anchored to home, your family members and work obligations. It seems that we can micro manage all this while enjoying endless hours outdoors from your own home.
The second reason outdoor kitchens have elevated family time outdoors is that there is so much more than just grilling. With today's influx of outdoor Grills, cookers, smokers, warming drawers, pizza ovens and power burners it is no wonder that the size and planning for the right amount of outdoor kitchen space gets clouded and confusing. Culinary delight now meets conversation and this is the how outdoor living creates its own entity of space. A clever way to design the Outdoor kitchen island with built in sitting counters and closely adjacent to an eating area.
"Rising expectations" was voted outdoor kitchen of the month NOVEMBER 2014 by the folks at BROWN JORDAN. This outdoor kitchen kitchen island is built up from the lower level below and rises 16 ft. up through the new mahogany deck. As you can see the new deck build was enlarged to wrap around the backside of the island to welcome family up to the grilling area. The enlarged granite counter also creates a destination for arriving guests to drop off their party belongings.
LOOK beyond the Grill when considering your outdoor space
When considering your new outdoor kitchen space it is best to move the thought process to mimic an indoor kitchen in which the way it functions, it looks aesthetically and all the outcomes it provides as a central link to the house and its family members. The outdoor kitchen layout should be the highlight of outdoor activity. The view from both the grill master and the conversing guests should be pleasing and welcoming. There is no reason not to take a good vantage point and location from the back yard to start the process. Secondly define the intent. Is this the family outdoor kitchen space for everyday grilling opportunities for friends and family? Are you fortunate enough to have a second outdoor kitchen space with various culinary appliances for entertaining. Once you have a handle on what you want to be capable doing with your outdoor kitchen you can ripple your way through a more clearer intent of purpose for this newly found outdoor living space. Too many times people are always thinking of that great party for "fifty plus" when it only happens once in a great while. The hub of the outdoor kitchen expands into the yard more easily than you would imagine with temporary tables, tents etc. when necessary. Thats what the yard and patio spaces are for. So many comments from couples when their decision to build an outdoor kitchen is torn halfway. The most common expression is "Well I don't Grill or cook outdoors". How could you not? And if you don't, create the space so your guests and friends come over and are impelled to take the "Grill over". There is always one of those in the crowd. With todays great looking, high performance grills it easy to make it the highlight of the party. Today's grills have LED lites, easy closing lids, infrared burners, smart cooking technology, and multi purpose steamer, fryer capability to help raise the bar to earn you the title "GRILL MASTER".
Too often I hear I don't know what to cook. Reach out to the bookstore, internet or latch onto a few good blogs. There is so much to grill, cook and serve outdoors. Everything you could cook indoors can be handled outdoors and with a lot less mess. Expand your culinary horizons. Dash some steak seasoning and oregano on your next cheeseburger and perfect a few family "favs" that are on the weekly menu. That becomes a great time to serve some new recipes alongside. Lastly comes to mind is the expression "Its too much work". A great deal of that can be put to rest with a great comprehensive Outdoor Kitchen design. An outdoor kitchen equipped Grill with working space, power burners, warming drawers, live sink, refrigeration, storage, trash pull, ample counters with sitting space and much more lifestyle amendments to mimic your cooking lifestyle indoors makes outdoor grilling worth while.
