Outdoor Kitchen Component List – Essentials on a Budget

The Essential Outdoor Kitchen Component List to Include When On a Budget

We understand that not everyone is a Rockefeller; that’s why we assembled this article that covers the essentials where it concerns outdoor living.

Your outdoor kitchen is built primarily for one purpose, and that’s to house your professional barbecue grill. Running back and forth from your indoor kitchen to your outdoor kitchen happens, but if we can help you reduce those trips, we’re all for it. Most people don’t just eat barbecue when they grill. You tend to serve the meal with a few side dishes. So, the first must-have component of the list is going to be a side burner/s (preferably a double side burner, to heat more than one side).

This precision cut, handmade side burner is made of stainless steel and will provide you years of outdoor cooking enjoyment. If you are looking to create a gourmet outdoor meal complete with soups or side dishes, a drop-in side burner is an ideal addition to your outdoor kitchen. As of March 15, 2016 — Blaze side burners have a lifetime warranty that warrants against any defects in the manufacturing and workmanship of the burner, burner grate, body, lid, and control valve. While the ignition system is covered for one (1) year after the date of purchase. The product must be registered within thirty days for the warranty to apply.

Next on our essential outdoor kitchen component list is the built-in mini-refrigerator. There’s just something so satisfying about having quick access to a cold beverage. Believe us when we say that this mini fridge will get its use.

The Blaze 4.5 Compact Refrigerator is the ideal space-saving solution for family rooms, game rooms, apartments or anywhere else. Interior design offers plenty of shelf space for all your favorite refreshments and foods. The refrigerator, including the compressor, is warranted for 1 year to the original owner against defects in manufacturing and workmanship. This warranty extends to the original purchaser against manufacture defects for products purchased for ordinary single-family home use.

The Mandatory Outdoor Kitchen Component

The last item on our essentials list is a functional requirement. It serves a few purposes, the first being the accessibility to your internal gas, electrical, and plumbing lines for your barbecue grill and any other components you install, and the second is acting as a dry storage area. Your outdoor kitchen cabinet has plenty of space that you can convert into a dry storage area. Depending on the size of your outdoor kitchen, you’ll need to install at least one access door. In our experience, though, a combination access door and drawer unit will only lend to both the aesthetic appeal and functionality of your outdoor living area.

There are a plethora of other components that can you can add that will expand the functionality of your outdoor living space. You can add elements such as a trash receptacle, sink & faucet, ice maker, warming drawer, ice maker, beverage station, ice bin, power burner, and many other components. You can, in my opinion, make your outdoor living area better than your indoor kitchen, and some people do just that.

Why You Need A Professional Outdoor Kitchen Company When Building Your Barbecue Island

Corroded Outdoor Kitchen Structure

Building A Barbecue Island The Wrong Way!

In this article, we’ll be covering some important topics about outdoor kitchen design & construction materials. We’ll also show you some reference photos that support using a professional outdoor kitchen contractor over an amateur do-it-yourselfer. We’re writing this article to warn homeowners of the risks of using sub-par building materials and construction methods. We recommend that you don’t cut corners to save money when it comes to your outdoor kitchen area.

We’ve included some prime examples photos of what happens when your builder uses the wrong materials when constructing your custom barbecue island structure. This gentleman thought he purchased a home with a beautiful little starter outdoor kitchen, what he found, in reality, was something he would more than likely have to pay someone to remove from his property. Here at Elegant Outdoor Kitchens, we build outdoor kitchens that look amazing and are structurally sound. Which is especially important in our neck of the woods; we have to endure hurricanes that are devastatingly powerful and destructive. That’s the Elegant Outdoor Kitchens difference! Take it from us; you don’t want to find yourself in this precarious outdoor kitchen position.

Here you’ll see the damage that’s caused by natural weathering and overexposure. The original builder also used a material that wasn’t suited for outdoor kitchen construction. Sure, this custom outdoor kitchen lasted about five years, but it could have lasted 15 – 20 years. That is if it was built using the proper materials. Protect your outdoor kitchen investment and make sure your contractor is using the appropriate construction materials for the job! That’s one thing you won’t have to worry about when you choose the professionals here at Elegant Outdoor Kitchen of Fort Myers, Florida. We’re Southwest Florida’s outdoor living specialists.
