One of the hottest new trends in landscape design which is becoming even more popular than Inground pools is the outdoor kitchen. Outdoor Kitchens residents may not know, are kitchen spaces which can be created in parks and backyard’s in order to allow people to cook things outdoors in much the same manner as they would be able to do inside their homes.
The outdoor kitchen, because it is so popular, is a pretty good investment at the moment and will likely lead to a rise in the price of a property who correctly installs one.
Simple and Sophisticated
Outdoor kitchens are simple and sophisticated additions to any home garden. They can be as simple as a barbecue grill and sink or as elaborate as a beautiful wood fired stove and granite work surfaces. They tend to also feature a bar and dining space, making them perfect for al fresco dining.
Outdoor kitchen design is very similar to indoor kitchen design, but it tends to be a lot more minimalist than indoor versions. It is, however, still important to ensure that all bases are covered and all important equipment installed when you are designing an outdoor kitchen. This means that you will need adequate cooking space and enough space to feed your friends and family. It is also likely that you will need a canopy to protect from the elements.
You will also need to consider where to place your kitchen. If you have a pool for example, you will want to locate your kitchen nearby because that will help you when entertaining friends, but you will need to ensure that it does not interfere with any Pool renovations or maintenance that you may be planning. If you are unsure of this, you should consult a professional landscaper to help you with the design.
