When you sit down with your landscape designer to create the custom outdoor kitchen of your dreams, there are many features that you can choose to add to the area such as countertops, ovens, refrigerators, and so much more.

Outdoor kitchens are beautiful, but there are four particular features you should consider adding to your project. Learn about these features and how they will benefit your property in Lebanon, Mt. Juliet, Green Hill, and nearby cities in Tennessee.


1. Add a wine and beverage cooler.

When you have guests over to your outdoor kitchen, you will not want to be going in and out repeatedly to refill wine glasses and get supplies for drinks because it interrupts the flow of conversation and you could miss things. If you add a wine and beverage cooler to the kitchen's space, then you can avoid that back and forth with a fully stocked cooler.

The size of the space depends on how much you plan to entertain, but we can create an area for any size wine cooler you like.


2. Install a sink so you can use it outside.

An outdoor sink provides a place to clean up dishes, wine glasses, or other items from cooking outside without taking the mess inside your home. This way, you can clean up while your guests are still there and not put it off until morning. Leaving dirty dishes outside is a good way to attract bugs to your outdoor living space, too. The sink will give you a chance to clean up that food debris as soon as possible.


3. Put in a seating bar to entertain your guests.

A bar by the kitchen area gives your guests, friends, and family an area to sit and relax while sipping wine outside. They can also carry on a conversation with you while you cook the meal on the stove or grill. Pick outdoor barstools that will match the materials used to build your outdoor kitchen, or you can even install a small seating wall if that is the look and feel you want for your space.


4. Consider a unique cooking grill.

While grills themselves are a great addition to any outdoor kitchen, you may want to consider using a unique type of grill for your outdoor space. Types of unique cooking grills include a smoker, a Green Egg, or a built-in pizza oven. With these, you can create a diverse option of meals for your family or guests to your property such as smoked brisket, a make-your-own-pizza night, or pork loin.
