3 Design Considerations for Your Outdoor Kitchen

Posted: April 25, 2017

Remodeled outdoor kitchen

People are taking advantage of their outdoor space now more than ever – especially when it comes to showing off their culinary skills.

With a little planning, you can transform an ordinary backyard into an outdoor cooking oasis. Here are three questions to ask yourself before you get started with a plan for your outdoor kitchen:

  1. How many people do you typically cook for? The number of people you entertain will affect the serving and prep countertop area you need; while preparing some of your food indoors is OK, you’ll still need space to stage your food for grilling and serving.
  2. Do you want a built-in or freestanding propane grill? The number of people you cook for also affects the type of grill you choose. A relatively inexpensive propane grill cart does a fine job for small families or get-togethers – but if you regularly entertain large crowds, you’ll want as big a grilling area as possible to prepare your delicious, healthy meals. Freeman features top quality FireMagic built-in propane grills that let you cook an entire meal for multiple guests – all at one time, and all with precision temperature control.
  3. What features do you want your outdoor kitchen to include? Any feature in an indoor kitchen is also possible outdoors – including sinks, wine refrigerators, freezers, countertops, carts, and more. Lighting is a big consideration, too, since you will probably do a lot of your entertaining into the evening hours.

It takes a little planning, but once you have your propane-powered outdoor kitchen up and running you’ll wonder how you ever lived without it.
