For people who live in and around Tampa, outdoor kitchens have become a fun and popular place to gather with friends and family. If you are consider adding a Tampa outdoor kitchen to your outdoor living space, here some awesome outdoor kitchen ideas to consider:
1) Gas Grill
Gas grills are the most popular feature in outdoor kitchens. They are faster and easier to work with than charcoal. Many homes in the Tampa area have a natural gas connection, and an outdoor gas grill can be connected to the gas line. If the home doesn't have natural gas, propane tanks can be used instead. By building your grill into your outdoor living space, you can cook while still being part of the gathering instead of getting stuck inside away from everyone else.
2) Charcoal Grill
While gas grills are fast and easy to use, a lot of grill masters prefer the flavor they get from grilling their meat over charcoal. There's no need to choose between gas or charcoal when you can have both, side-by-side in your outdoor kitchen area. Big Green Eggs charcoal grills are especially popular and can be built right into an outdoor outdoor kitchen cabinet.
3) Outdoor Refrigerator
While you and your friends are hanging out around the outdoor kitchen and grill, why not make it easy to get some ice and cold drinks by having a refrigerator built right into your outdoor kitchen? This could be your meat or beer fridge as well.
4) Outdoor Sink
Now, your outdoor kitchen has everything but the kitchen sink... literally. So, why not add one? While cooking there are times you need to wash your hands or rinse vegetables. Plus if you include a refrigerator in your outdoor kitchen, you'll probably already want to run a water line to it for the ice maker and water dispenser.
5) Outdoor Bar
If you're going to build a refrigerator into your outdoor kitchen and stock it with cold drinks, why not add a bar and bar stools so your family and friends don't have to stand while you're cooking? It only, makes sense right?
6) Outdoor Television
So, now that your family and friends are sitting at your awesome outdoor bar, they're probably going to want watch the Lightning, Bucs, or Rays right?. You might as well add a nice flat screen TV.
7) Sound system
Whether you are relaxing by yourself, having a few friends over or hosting a big party, music always adds life and ambiance to any activity.
