Transform your Deck into an Outdoor Kitchen

No matter the season, there’s nothing quite like the smell of a grilled burger or hearing the sound of a sizzling steak cooked to perfection.  Why go through the hassle of bringing sides and condiments from the indoors to be served outdoors when you could just bring the indoors to you?  Kitchens no longer have to be confined to the four walls of your home.  Why not take advantage of the outdoor space your house has to offer as well?  Interested in building out your home’s deck for an outdoor kitchen?  Planning for your dream deck is important so keep in mind these five factors when building your outdoor kitchen

Location

No one likes a cluttered kitchen area when entertaining.   The deck building materials, wood railing option, steps and more all play a key role in choosing the location of where you build a deck.  Accessibility and functionality can make or break the whole atmosphere of the deck.

  Space & Storage

To have a great deck for entertaining or just to unwind after a long day, you need space.  A cramped wood deck is not relaxing nor is it efficient.  If a wood railing or other decking options are in the way, it brings chaos to the room along with the feeling of being boxed-in.  Create designated places for built-in storage, seating, and cooking areas.  

Ambiance

When the right location and space is well thought out, it creates a relaxing atmosphere. Proper lighting, comfortable seating, and even an outdoor television could be added for even more relaxation.  Soon you’ll be grilling up a steak, beer in hand, cheering on your favorite team from the comfort of your deck. 

Indoor/ Outdoor Living

Indoor/ outdoor kitchens are the perfect way to enjoy the best of both worlds.  Picture yourself opening the doors from the kitchen onto a beautiful wood grain deck.  Wood decks come in many colors and designs made for the natural outdoors.  Creating an outdoor space adds an incomparable beauty and efficiency to the home. 

Entertainment

Grilling and entertaining on an outdoor kitchen deck is a great way to create those lasting memories with family and friends.  Drink, laugh, cook, eat; any occasion becomes a reason enough to gather on the deck and enjoy an outdoor atmosphere that is an extension of your own home.
