For people who live in and around Trinity, outdoor kitchens have been come an enjoyable and popular place to gather with friends and family. If you are consider adding an outdoor kitchen to your outdoor living area, here some great ideas to think about:
1) Charcoal Grill
Many outdoor kitchens are designed around the grill. When the grill is built into the main entertaining area, the chef can be more a part of the gathering, instead of off by him or herself cooking the food. Big Green Eggs charcoal grills are especially popular and can be built right into an outdoor outdoor kitchen cabinet.
2) Gas Grill
Gas grills are another great option. They cook faster than charcoal if you want to cook something quick, and are great to have next to a charcoal or gas grill to use for cooking side dishes. Many new homes in the Tampa Bay area are being built with 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.
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 refrigerator right there as well. This could serve as your meat or beer fridge too.
Now that you have a fridge 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.
And now that you've got an awesome outdoor bar, your family and friends are probably going to want to be able to turn on the Bucs, Rays or Lightning game while hanging out. You might as well add a nice flat screen TV.
At this point, your outdoor kitchen has everything but the kitchen sink... literally. Why not add one? While cooking there are times you need to wash your hands or rinse fruit or vegetables. If you opted to include a refrigerator in your outdoor kitchen, you will already need to run a water line to it for the ice maker and water dispenser.
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.
