Long Island outdoor kitchens have become a trend in the past few years for outdoor living and entertaining. While homeowners have been grilling with outdoor barbecues, they are quickly being replaced by 6 burner grills, grill islands and full service outdoor kitchens. You can certainly enjoy your backyard and grill some tasty barbecue on a charcoal or gas grill, but to truly bring your kitchen outside requires some vision, skill and expertise.
3 Outdoor Kitchen Design Considerations
1. Where to Place Your Outdoor Kitchen
Location is the first factor to consider.
The ideal location for a backyard outdoor kitchen is as close to the home as possible. The first reason for this is to provide easy access to needed utility lines like water and electric. Keeping it close the house also brings convenience to the inside of your home making it easy to access things needed.
2. What to Include in Your Outdoor Kitchen
A basic outdoor kitchen can include a grill, counter top, some cabinets for storage and a sink. Some of the other frequently used appliances can include dishwashers, ice makers, refrigerators, warming drawers, and burners depending on what your needs are.
An outdoor kitchen design can include a serving bar tied into the cooking area, or parallel to the cooking area lined with comfortable seating stools. A bar-like set up like this creates a very social atmosphere and gives a resort like feel. Adding a flat screen TV and stereo makes a nice statement. There are many ways of constructing built-in barbecues on Long Island. Some materials we utilize include brick, cultured or natural stones, paving stones and interlocking wall block.
3. Countertop Choices for an Outdoor Kitchen
In addition, countertop choices include choices of granite, bluestone, tile, marble, quartz and cast colored concrete. Adding sun coverage above to protect you and your guest from heat or wet weather could be accomplished by constructing a pergola or tiki style roof. Be sure to ask us about having one of our wood carpentry experts assist in any carpentry features you would like to add. The ideal Long Island outdoor kitchen and barbecue should be a reflection of the homeowner’s personal taste so don’t hesitate to give us your ideas. The outdoor kitchen, home and landscape should all transition into one beautiful space.
