Top 6 Recommended Outdoor Kitchen Features for the Summertime

Top 6 Recommended Outdoor Kitchen Features for the Summertime

Outdoor kitchens are one of the greatest ways to get outside more during the summertime. Who wants to go inside to cook when you can continue to get some sunshine while making dinner? Not us! Not only do outdoor kitchens serve as incredible party hosting companions, but they also increase your property value.

Whether you are building your outdoor kitchen from scratch or you are thinking of ways to upgrade your current one, we can help! The following amenities are perfect additions to your outdoor kitchen and will make summertime that much sweeter!


1) Refrigerator

This could be the most convenient addition to your outdoor kitchen. Many ingredients that you cook with require staying cold until you need them. Without a refrigerator handy in your outdoor kitchen, you will either have to walk back inside every time you need to grab something cold OR you will need to leave it out on the counter in the hot sun until it is ready to be used. Neither option is ideal, which is why we highly suggested adding a refrigerator to your outdoor kitchen.

Most grills are outdoors anyway, so why not add one to your outdoor kitchen plan? There is usually limited space for tools, plates, and food when cooking on a standalone grill. Installing a grill in between some counters in your outdoor kitchen will make the life of any cook that much easier.

Using Natural Stone vs. Concrete Pavers for Your Outdoor Living Spaces

Outdoor living spaces add beauty and functionality to your yard and when you opt to add one to your property, there are many choices to make such as what elements to install, the type of landscape plants, and the kind of material to build everything.

Choosing the material for your new space is a big decision, especially when you consider that they will last for decades. Learn about concrete pavers and natural stone and which one you may want to pick for your outdoor living space in Lebanon, Mt. Juliet, Hendersonville, and nearby areas of Tennessee.


Concrete Pavers: More Economical, But Require More Maintenance

One great choice for outdoor living spaces is concrete pavers. These come in many different colors, shapes, and sizes. Our hardscape contractors can arrange them in multiple patterns as well for a completely customized area. We can use them to create patios, walkways, decorative driveways, and more.

Pavers are a more economical choice of material, as they cost less than natural stone and are easier to install. Each piece is precut and designed to interlock with the one next to it.

They do require sealing and cleaning services, and those should be done every 3-5 years, which means they need more maintenance than stone. Occasionally, a paver might break or crack, but it is easy to replace them.


Natural Stone: Higher Costs, Will Last Forever
