Outdoor Kitchens Stuart
Stuart is frequently rated as one of the best small towns to visit in the US. This is largely because of Stuart’s proximity to the St. Lucie River and Indian River Lagoon – enhancing the great outdoor lifestyle Stuart’s citizens enjoy all year round. Life in this beautiful part of Florida should be about making the most of our leisure time.
One of the hottest patio trends these days is the outdoor kitchen. This came about as an extension of the barbecue area: people got tired of carrying kitchen equipment from the house and so the outdoor kitchen evolved.
More than 75% of American households include an outdoor grill or smoker, but that is just the beginning. It has always been said that the kitchen is the heart of the home, so it seems logical that we are bringing that heart outdoors and blending that with our patio or poolside living. By adding a kitchen to your outdoor space or backyard, you can have convenient counter space, storage, and kitchen appliances to make your outside leisure time as easy and enjoyable as possible.
Consider all the benefits that outdoor kitchen appliances, such as a pizza oven, gas grills, outdoor refrigerators, drawers, and sinks, can have to turn your outdoor living space into a functional space, especially during the summer months. For example, stainless steel cabinets or drawers and shelves can be incorporated to act as stylish storage for dishes, utensils, pots, and pans. At the same time, marble or granite countertops can serve as a helpful and elegant food prep and serving tool.
So now that rolling out the barbecue cart has become passé, how do we go about styling the outdoor kitchen? It’s a lot more complicated than choosing between charcoal or gas (although your choice is not limited to just one of these). The outdoor kitchen requires as much planning and design as your home’s original indoor kitchen; with the added considerations of weather proofing and protecting your investment from the elements.
That is why you should also consider other elements, such as adding a pergola or roof, access doors, and locks to your outdoor kitchen. For an added look and feel, you can even tile and decorate your outdoor kitchen by adding stylish string lights and lanterns or installing some overhead lights for a nighttime bbq.
Some other outdoor kitchen ideas include adding a table and chairs to create your very own outdoor dining area where you can serve and enjoy your food. You can also install an outdoor bar where you and your guests can prepare and enjoy drinks. Make your outdoor bar stylish and convenient by adding an outdoor fireplace, a mini-fridge, seating area, and even a tv if you like!
With the range of trendy and traditional designs available, designing the kitchen is half the fun.
