Outdoor kitchens have caught on like wildfire across the country. People have been eating and cooking outdoors for millennia, but in the recent years the concept of enjoying nature close to home on patios, around fire-pits, and in outdoor kitchens has exploded in popularity. The idea of creating an outdoor kitchen and dining space enables homeowners to take full advantage of their property and develop a natural outdoor recreation area using stone and imagination.
You can be as creative as you want with outdoor kitchens in central New England. The right design and use of appropriate, weather-resistant materials enables most designs to stand up to New England’s changeable weather. To ensure that you’re getting the right kind of outdoor space design and the right materials, be sure to work with experienced outdoor kitchen experts such as Forever Green Landscaping.
Depending on the space and utilities that you have, you can opt for a grill, a sink, a work area and even electrical appliances such as a range and oven. A U shaped kitchen provides a little more space and enables you to have additional storage and a fridge as well.
Once the outdoor kitchen shape is determined, you can decide on counters, even an island and the material used on those surfaces. Granite, slate or marble are good options for outdoor kitchens. It is advisable to stay away from wood in an outdoor kitchen, unless it’s covered.
Finally it’s time to layout seating arrangements. Outdoor kitchens can present quite a challenge for including enough efficient seating. Sometimes it can be hard to figure it all out. That’s why it’s best to call the outdoor kitchen specialists here at Forever Green to help design and plan your outdoor kitchen layout.
