If you’re looking to really make an impact in your back patio, you should really consider an outdoor kitchen. In addition to creating an outdoor space ideal for entertaining, buying an Outdoor Kitchen Island will give you an instant return on your home investment. Here are some questions that might come up as you search for the outdoor kitchen of your dreams:
The first thing you should consider is how large you want your outdoor entertaining space to be. With a tape measure, mark off the space you are looking to transform. You want to allow at last 36 to 50 inches for reasonable walkway. If you are considering more than one countertop space, think about the design of your kitchen. Make a checklist of the things you wish to do with your outdoor kitchen space. Will you be storing raw food in your fridge? Will that need to be near the grill? Do you have enough counter space for prepping food? Do you have easy access to ice, or should you consider an outdoor ice machine for a fridge? If you are entertaining, would you want to include a space for mixing drinks?
If space and sizing is not an issue, you may want to consider the seating arrangements of your outdoor kitchen. Do you plan on hosting events that might require several guests to be seated at the bar area? Do you anticipate children or grandchildren sitting at the bar area while you tend to the grill?
The great news is that prefabricated islands traditionally cost much less than customized contractor-built outdoor kitchen islands. With rising construction costs (30% in labor and materials in some parts of the country), having a craftsman build your outdoor kitchen can certainly be a luxury. If you are working with a budget, and your space allows for islands to be moved into place, luxury prefabricated outdoor kitchen islands have never been more affordable.
While electricity and water are not essential, having both hooked up to your outdoor kitchen island will allow you to use all of the functionality, including a fridge, sink and lights on your grill. The great news is many of the prefabricated outdoor kitchen islands have a hollow base, allowing for added flexibility for attached water and electricity.
