Outdoor kitchens are popular for summer entertaining
Whatever your budget, an outdoor kitchen can be built to fit. Sometimes, it’s a simple deck with a roof and portable barbecue; for others, it can be nearly as elaborate as the indoor kitchen, featuring a sink, refrigerator, and oven.
For those with the budget, it can be nearly a full-scale kitchen built on the patio or deck. The water pipes, gas lines and appliances will be designed for outdoor installation. Of course an elaborate outdoor kitchen will definitly want a roof, to expand the times when it can be comfortably used and to protect the furnishings.
As Bellinghamsters know, living in a cooler region doesn’t preclude the love of entertaining outdoors. The goal of outdoor kitchens is to make entertaining in the fresh air effortless and enjoyable, for the hosts as well as guests.
