Your backyard is an extension of your home – more space to enjoy, fresh air and sunshine, and outdoor fun, such as possibly a pool, lake view, or a swingset for the kids or grandkids.
Instead of having to spend time prepping and cooking food indoors while everyone else is outside, why not create an outdoor kitchen? With new technology and materials, outdoor kitchen cabinetry is possible! Outdoor cabinetry is made to withstand temperatures and sunlight without fading and moisture without warping or rotting, while still looking just as modern and beautiful as what you know and expect with indoor kitchen cabinets.
Here are 3 things to know about outdoor kitchen cabinetry that may pleasantly surprise you.
1. Low Maintenance & Long Lasting
Materials used for outdoor cabinets are specifically made for outdoor settings. They are impermeable to moisture, mildew-resistant and designed to last. Whether your backyard sees hours of sun, or chilly, snow-filled winter months, outdoor cabinetry will withstand it all and be ready for your next outdoor gathering. Adding a covering to your outdoor kitchen space is ideal, but if not possible, be sure to choose weather resistant materials for all surfaces. Our designers can help with these choices.
2. Customizable Layouts and Storage Options
Professional designers and installers can work with you to ensure your ideal layout and accessories fit within your outdoor space. Current design elements such as pillars or landscaping can be included in the design process. Kitchen appliances, including grills, smokers, and mini fridges, can also be included in the designs. We can also consider the storage requirements you have, and make sure your outdoor kitchen design meets those needs. It’s very similar to designing or renovating an indoor kitchen – just outdoors instead!
3. Variety of Styles & Finishes to Match Your Home
Outdoor living is meant to be an extension of your home, and with a wide variety of cabinet door styles and colors, it can feel like a seamless transition from inside to outside. From traditional browns and whites, to greys, blacks and blues – the vision for your outdoor oasis can come to life.
