One of the most useful additions to your outdoor space is an outdoor kitchen. Building an outdoor kitchen greatly expands your backyard functionality! From cooking and grilling among your guests, to having a fully functioning bar for friends to sit and hang, and even an overhead shelter to protect you from the elements, an outdoor kitchen is an incredible investment. While some straightforward and simple outdoor kitchen setups are doable for the homeowner, contacting a Montgomery County outdoor kitchen contractor is the best way to get top quality design, materials, and workmanship.
What To Include In Your Outdoor Kitchen
There are so many key elements and concept options for setting up your outdoor kitchen, from sticking to the basics to full on luxury and comfort. But regardless of where you fall on the gamut, the most important feature in your Montgomery County outdoor kitchen is the grill. Your grill should be the main focus of your kitchen, because it will be doing most of the work! We at Paul Construction & Awning recommend shopping for a higher end grill, as it should be the crown jewel of your outdoor kitchen! But there are multiple grill types to choose from depending on what type of cooking you prefer, your budget, and how often you’ll be using it.
Grill types include:
- Natural Gas or Propane. These types of grills are the most popular for outdoor cooking. They tend to be in the more expensive range up front, but over the long term, they require less upkeep costs. A decision you’ll have to make is whether you prefer refillable propane tanks or a direct gas line hookup for easier access.
- Charcoal. Some people live for the taste of meat cooked over a charcoal flame. There are many sizes to choose from and plenty of price points. The downside is that charcoal can be a bit messy and can take longer to light.
- Electric. If you’re working with a smaller space for your outdoor kitchen, electric grills are a great option. They’re easy to use and can be affordable. You’ll just need to make sure you have an electrical outlet nearby.
If you’re looking for a state-of-the-art grilling system, you’ll want to consider some added features that some grills come equipped with now, such as:
- Convection ovens
- Rotisserie attachment
- Under-drawer storage
- Warming burners
- Built-in sound systems
