   Nothing says “summer” quite like a cookout. Kids love them. Adults, too—because they get to feel
like kids again. The aroma of cooking food mixed with fresh air makes everyone’s mouth water. And no
one has yet explained how everything cooked outdoors somehow tastes better.

 Outdoor kitchens are the newest trend in Houston landscaping. These structures create a focus point
similar to the kitchen inside the home. It becomes the center of all the action and entertainment. In
other words, outdoor kitchens give you a natural gathering place in a natural setting.

 Best of all, an outdoor kitchen allows you, as the host, to enjoy the good times, too. You may be the
chief cook and bottlewasher, but, with an outdoor kitchen, you get to do all your necessary—and much
appreciated—work right in the midst of your family, friends and guests.

An Expert Call to help with your Outdoor Kitchen

 Building an outdoor kitchen is not any different than any other remodeling project—except it must
withstand extremely high levels of heat from the grill and, if not built properly, it can damage or destroy
your property. Therefore, it makes sense to use a professional.

 A pro will help you during the landscape design phase to check your deed restrictions concerning
rules regulating such items as size, lot coverage percentages, height, and color materials. They will
also be familiar with city regulations prior to and during construction. It is also imperative that you have
a good layout so that all your appliances fit and are convenient for use.

 Another consideration for which a professional will provide advice is tying your outdoor kitchen’s
design into the larger space; things like, complementing any existing structures, easy access to the
indoor kitchen and the outdoor kitchen’s relationship to a swimming pool and outdoor fountain. There
might be important factors concerning the layout; for instance, if the outdoor kitchen is at your beach
house, it might be best positioned to catch the prevailing breeze.

Additions and Subtractions

Decisions to make concerning your outdoor kitchen include:

 • Do you want your outdoor kitchen covered so that you can cook and entertain even when it rains? If
you opt out of a roof, fabric covers keep your grill and other furnishings clean. Plus they’ll last longer
with extra protection.

 • You will want to consider the overall size needed. For instance, for the chairs at the dining table, you
need at least four feet away from any other element, especially the grill or any step-downs.

• Plan for adequate cabinet space. This way you can keep your outdoor kitchen properly supplied,
which will help cut down on trips back and forth to the indoor kitchen.

 • Counter top options include tile, granite, stone and concrete. Consider a counter top with a minimum
of grout so that it reduces your clean-up time.

• Overhead fans.

 • Refrigerator: Undercounter units are popular for outdoor kitchens because they are out of sight,
protected by the counter and handy for storage. Look for models that include automatic ice makers and
frost-free features.

• Sinks: Stainless-steel sinks are preferable for outdoor kitchens because they won't corrode.

 • Other accoutrements to consider: Waterproof TV and sound systems, hot water heaters, warming
drawers, and fireplaces.

The Star of the Show: The Outdoor Grill

 Grills can be either custom-built or pre-fabricated. Custom-built grills provide a more permanent
appearance. They also require a non-combustible surround, usually made of brick or masonry.
Prefabricated grills use a steel frame and are available with decorative finishes such as stucco, brick or

Other nice-to-have features for the grill include a smoker, side burners and a rotisserie.

 Whether you go with a custom or ready-made grill, your builder will need to check for any necessary
permitting. Electricity, water and natural gas lines are usually brought to the outdoor kitchen from the
service in the house.

Don’t Forget!

 Jeff Halper with Exterior Worlds suggests three elements that often get overlooked when designing an
outdoor kitchen:

 • Outdoor kitchens need adequate landscape lighting—and lighting that not only provides general and
task lighting, but accent lighting as well. “Lights can be attached to the grill or lighting can be mounted
in beams in the arbor, in nearby trees or on the house eaves,” says Halper. “Lights create dramatic
effects by casting shadows from plantings and trees. They provide an artistic element that can be
enjoyed indoors or out.”

• Plenty of electrical outlets should be included in plans for the cooking and dining areas.

 • Think about landscaping, an herb garden nearby. “It’s a nice touch and you can easily add the
garden-fresh ingredients to your cooking,” says Halper.

 An Outdoor Kitchen is a fabulous addition to a house, it is something that will change your house

Outdoor Kitchens are becoming more and more popular, the change is mainly due to the fact that a lot
of people are trying to upgrade the familiar barbeque experience into something a little more elegant
and comfortable – the Outdoor Kitchen.

Outdoor kitchen can be used not only as the main attraction at your parties, an outdoor kitchen can be
used on a daily basis, with the whole family enjoying a meal n the open air, you may find yourself
disappointed of restaurants when you start eating “out” a few times a week. Suddenly an evening in a
closed space will seem like less fun compared to the outdoor kitchen experience waiting just a few
steps from your living room.

The growing popularity of the outdoor kitchen in the last years has created many different products to
choose when designing your outdoor kitchen, some people prefer to design a small and practical
outdoor kitchen and save some costs, others go for the luxury additions when creating their outdoor
kitchen design.

Today you can find outdoor kitchens in region of the world that have relatively short summers, people
living in these areas try and enjoy the summer to its fullest, and install a kitchen that is built around the
grill, this way they can have a barbeque without running in and out of the house and use a small
kitchen in their backyard.

Weather conditions in your area will be very important when thinking of an outdoor kitchen design, in
some cases extreme weather will call for unique solutions and custom made outdoor kitchens, these
can be very expensive and take a lot of energy to put together, you may need to consider the
conditions of your living area before going ahead with the plan to build an outdoor kitchen.

Naturally there are huge advantages to the outdoor experience, spending quality time with your family
and friends and enjoying the outdoors, an outdoor kitchen can create the prefect setting for all these
things on a regular, everyday basis. The work you will need to put into your outdoor kitchen is also
something to consider before checking out the appliances, if you plan to do this by yourself you should
be aware of the fact that building an outdoor kitchen may take a lot of time, so free a couple of your
weekends and carefully plan and design your outdoor kitchen. If you plan to have a third party perform
the construction of the outdoor kitchen make sure you know exactly what you want and start the
negotiations from your ideal point, don’t forget that contractors sometime have their own preferences,
but they are not the ones living in the house, so remember to make it absolutely clear that you are
calling the shots on this outdoor kitchen design.

One last word about outdoor kitchens, you may find that some people are much nicer to you than they
were before when you have your outdoor kitchen ready, some of them may even call and ask if they
can come over for a nice sunny Sunday lunch and enjoy your new outdoor kitchen, you don’t have to
invite all of these new friends, and if they complain about you never answering the phone or not getting
the door, you can simply tell them you were outside, preparing a nice lunch in your new outdoor
