Alfresco Entertaining: Elevate Your Outdoor Living with Our Expertly Designed Outdoor Kitchens

As we move into the warmer months (never as quickly as we’d like), many of us are starting to think about ways to enhance our outdoor living spaces. One of the best ways to do this is by adding an outdoor kitchen to your home.

An outdoor kitchen can be a game-changer when it comes to entertaining and enjoying your outdoor space. Imagine being able to prepare and cook meals outside while still being able to socialize with your guests. Plus, an outdoor kitchen can add significant value to your home and provide an attractive selling point should you ever choose to put it on the market.

At Revision Custom Home Design, we design outdoor living spaces that perfectly suit your needs and lifestyle, and the climate you live in. Here are some of the top things to consider when designing your outdoor kitchen:

  1. Location: The location of your outdoor kitchen is an important factor to consider. You want it to be close enough to the house so that it's convenient to use, but far enough away so that smoke and cooking odors don't drift into the home.

  2. Functionality: Your outdoor kitchen should be designed with functionality in mind. Think about the appliances and amenities that are most important to you, such as a grill, refrigerator, sink, or even a pizza oven.

  3. Materials: When it comes to designing an outdoor kitchen, you want to choose materials that are durable and weather-resistant. Stainless steel appliances and stone countertops are popular choices that will hold up well to the elements. In most cases you want to consider adding a cover for additional protection, such as a gazebo roof, or a large sun sail.

  4. Lighting: Don't forget about lighting! Proper lighting is essential for safety and convenience when cooking outside. You can also use lighting to create a warm and inviting atmosphere for entertaining. Some of my favorite options include bollard lighting along your pathways, and Edison bulb string lights around the perimeter of the food prep and eating area.
