Create the Go-To Party Spot with an Outdoor Kitchen
It may not feel like it now with the chilly temperatures and frequent showers here in Maryland, but spring and summer and just around the corner. There isn’t anything much more relaxing and enjoyable during the summer months than a good cookout and relaxing on your deck in the evenings. Grilling allows you to enjoy the fresh air while preparing delicious food, without making a mess in the kitchen, it really is a win-win!
But not all outdoor cooking spaces are created equal, and without the proper prep area and grill you could be stuck inside while your guests party outside. Outdoor kitchens are a great addition to a deck or patio, creating a perfect party spot for you and your guests. Let’s look at some features of outdoor kitchens that make them fantastic for summer parties.
Be a Part of the Party
By adding an outdoor kitchen to your deck or patio, you are able to prep and cook your food outside, where all the action is happening. Without an outdoor kitchen you may be able to grill your food outside with your guests, but you’ll first have to spend some time inside prepping, and you’ll have to run in and out of the house for items you forgot. By adding a kitchen with a cooking area as well as a prep area, you can limit the amount of time you are spending away from your guests.
Keep the Drinks Flowing
In addition to a food prep and cooking area, you can take the partying up a notch by adding a built in bar. By having an outdoor area for drinks you can prevent yourself or your guests from having to go inside and leave the party. By having a drink prep space and an outdoor mini fridge you can make your deck the go to party spot.
In addition to your outdoor kitchen you’ll also want to include some comfortable deck or patio furniture, and some bar stools for that new bar of yours! The key to creating an outdoor entertaining area is bringing everything outside to avoid interruptions, and making everyone as comfortable as possible.
Adding an outdoor kitchen to your current outdoor space is a great way to make your home the go to party place this summer. Not only can you enjoy the great outdoors while you cook, rather than a stuffy kitchen, you can also enjoy your company while you cook.
