It is the ideal outdoor feature for those family poor parties and backyard barbecues that you have always dreamt about. If planned properly, all the stylish women can create an outdoor kitchen that can and will be enjoyed by the whole family for years to come.

Listed below are some great outdoor kitchen tips that can help you make it happen:

  • Select the best location

If you have an existing deck or patio attached to the house, you probably want to add an outdoor kitchen to these areas. Locating your outdoor kitchen in close proximity to the indoor one is beneficial. There are times when you may want to use both simultaneously. If you keep the outdoor kitchen close to the house, you will be able to create a more convenient and easier path for the guests and hosts. Preparing and serving the food will be more efficient. If there is no existing deck or patio, you can build one for an outdoor kitchen. Assess your backyard’s layout and then choose a location that can be easily accessed from the house. These areas can be joined with decorative pathways or walkways.

  • Figure out how the kitchen will be used.

When you want to put in an outdoor kitchen, think about how you will use it. Do you enjoy small family dinners or prefer to entertain a large group of people? The space requirements and the kitchen equipment you need will depend on this. A typical outdoor kitchen in Clermont includes a side burner, gas grill, storage drawer, roll out trash bin and grill cover. If you are planning to entertain big groups, you can add more like double door pantries, an ice-maker, storage drawers, extra burners, a beer kegerator, a bar with a wine cooler and so on.

  • Come up with kitchen zones

If you want your outdoor kitchen to be functional, it is best to divide it into different zones. This includes the preparation zones that should have sinks, storage pantry, trash bin and cutting boards. There is a cooking zone that comprises of ovens and grills, propane tank storage, storage cabinets and drawers, side burners and fryers and griddles. Food warmers, warming drawers and garnish center fall in the plate and serve zone. There is also an entertaining zone that includes bar area, ice coolers and ice bins, compact refrigerator, wine cooler and blender.

  • Opt for low-maintenance materials

You should go with low-maintenance materials that can survive in all kinds of weather. Materials that are easy to maintain and clean will make it more enjoyable for you to use the outdoor kitchen. For deck or patio flooring, go with tile, wood, stone or concrete that can be washed down with a hose. The countertops should be slate or granite that can hold up well in the outdoors. Don’t go with porous materials as they stain faster.

Remember these tips and design the outdoor kitchen you want.
