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.

Five reasons to own an Outdoor Kitchen

Five reasons to own an outdoor kitchen

In this article, we discuss five reasons to own an outdoor kitchen. In Southwest Florida, cooking outdoors can appear as if it were a national pastime. For many areas around the United States, the statistics seem to support that notion. The reaction people have to a well built outdoor kitchen is an apparent reason to want one; however, there are six other reasons to have an outdoor kitchen. Let’s take a look:

1: Expanded Living Space

Having an outdoor kitchen and living area creates a welcoming atmosphere that offers extra space for cooking, dining, entertaining, and socializing. Built-in outdoor grills are a stylish way to open up a yard while gaining new cooking space. Outdoor rated refrigerators keep ingredients and beverages cold and conveniently located. Adding a kitchen sink to an outdoor living area means fewer trips back and forth for washing hands, dishes, and utensils. Advances in building materials and outdoor rated appliances have transformed yard space into elegant and eye-catching living areas.

2: Increase Value

Let us start by pointing out that installing an outdoor kitchen does not automatically mean that property value will go up enough to cover the cost of building and installing an outdoor kitchen. Outdoor kitchens constructed with the intent of using and enjoying the space rather than as an investment is a far healthier approach. The monetary value will have many variables; however, the real value of an outdoor kitchen is in the experience that it creates. For families, friends, neighbors, and visitors, outdoor living areas are a personal touch that welcomes and invites all to enjoy.

3: Save Energy by Cooking Outside

Moving cooking outside during hotter months will keep inside temperatures lower, and having less heat in the house means that air conditioners will not have to work as hard to keep interiors cool. Save power by maintaining the cooking temperature on the outside.

4: Save Money by Staying Home

Eating at restaurants can be very costly when done frequently. Homeowners who have put the time and investment into an outdoor kitchen commonly report eating at home more often. Rather than going out for barbecue and drinks, people invite guests to enjoy the space with good company. Many outdoor kitchens include wet bars in the design to accommodate entertaining, which brings us to our final reason for owning an outdoor kitchen and living area.

5: Great for Entertaining

Anyone with an outdoor kitchen can attest to how great they are for entertaining. Family, friends, and guests alike will enjoy the customized space. In many instances, the outdoor kitchen itself becomes a topic of conversation. People can socialize, watch TV and movies, play music, and enjoy the experience and atmosphere created by an outdoor living area.

So now that we’ve discussed some significant benefits to having an outdoor kitchen, you can follow up with our tips and tricks for planning an outdoor kitchen of your own!

Located in Fort Myers, Elegant Outdoor Kitchens bring quality and experience to Southwest Florida. If you would like to talk with us directly, you can reach us at (239) 229-9033.

Simplifying The Process: Owning an Elegant Outdoor Kitchen, It’s Ease and Your Happiness

Elegant Outdoor Kitchens, outdoor kitchens, bbq, outdoor living, barbecue islands, custom outdoor kitchens, custom outdoor living, florida, naples, ft myers, fort myers

Owning an Elegant Outdoor Kitchen is different than going to Home Depot, writing out all the products you wish to include, hiring a general contractor and piecemealing your thoughts into an inconvenient, stress-amplifying experience. The ease we provide to our customers is beneficial for many reasons. Not only do we remove you from the unwanted burden placed upon yourself to achieve the desired result, but before the process even begins we guide you through a series of pertinent questions that may have been otherwise overlooked.

For instance, will you be hosting parties or the occasional intimate family gathering? Will you need refrigeration, natural gas or running water? Do you have the proper water lines or gas lines running to your outdoor living area? If not, have you inquired about an estimate? What type of fuel will your primary cooking components use? (Natural gas, charcoal, wood, propane, etcetera). Will you be dining outside? If so, do you want your outdoor kitchen to have reasonable accommodation for such? What type of cooking are you most interested in pursuing? Will it be grilling, baking, smoking or a combination of the previously mentioned? What kind of material finishes will you be selecting and have you considered how they’ll fair in the Southwest Floridian weather? Do you need functional storage and trash storage? What design layout works best for your allotted space? Have you spoken with a professional design consultant yet?

Reading these questions may seem overwhelming. Not only are they valid concerns, but there’s also quite a few. Many of them would’ve arisen once the general contractor had been hired, creating an added pressure to have an answer before you know if it’s the correct one, had you not considered each prior.

Andrea and Ben Poulton of Elegant Outdoor Kitchens indeed simplify the process. You can contact us for a free consultation, we’ll come by your home at a time of your selection, and together we’ll navigate the parameters and possibilities within them while focusing our attention on what’s practical, within budget and aesthetically appealing. We’ll create a mock outdoor kitchen in our software, propose it to you based on the information we’ve discussed, further reworking the design if necessary, and once you’re happy with the layout, action will ensue. You won’t have to worry one bit; continue on with your life. We’ll just be in the backyard shrouding your vision with sawdust and hard work; however, once the debris settles and our final tool goes back into its bag, you’ll realize in that moment that your selection to choose us was one you won’t regret.

Call us today for a free consultation. Let’s create something lasting, something you take pride in, something beautiful, something you.

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.
