Remodeling your kitchen can give you space to entertain and have friends and coworkers over for parties and barbecues. However, you may want to extend your kitchen remodel to the outside of your home, especially during months with nice weather. To create the illusion that the outdoors are a continuation of the indoors, having large windows in your kitchen that look out to the gathering space would help tie the two spaces together. Also, adding large sliding glass doors as the egress from the indoor kitchen to the outdoor kitchen will enhance this feeling too.
The outdoor kitchen can provide only a cooking space, a chef’s grill for example, or a preparation and cooking stations, including a refrigerator and sink, depending on your preference as the homeowner. Adding an outdoor kitchen, complete with a bar rail on your deck for outdoor eating space would provide extra room to mingle and set plates and drinks down while visiting with friends during the beautiful weather. Outdoor kitchens and dining spaces increase your entertaining space and can increase the value of your home when done right. With adequate shelter, even a well styled pergola, your guests will have ample shade while visiting on a warm day.
