Outdoor Kitchens for Small Spaces
Outdoor kitchens aren’t just for homes with huge yards and extensive patios; they’re for any home that wants to take the cooking outside. Even a tiny patio can accommodate a kitchen with some careful choices. Here are some tips to help you bring a stunning kitchen to your modest patio.
Choose the Appliances
A huge kitchen on the deck may feature every appliance, but you won’t have that luxury if you are dealing with a smaller space. You can, however, choose the one or two appliances that you most want in this area.
You won’t really need a stove since you probably already have a grill, but you might love the idea of adding a refrigerator. With some careful design work, you can actually fit a refrigerator under the counter with a sink placed strategically to one side.
When space is plentiful, the outdoor kitchen can be placed away from the house. When space is limited, you must make good use of every inch. Put the kitchen near the house along one wall of the house. Build a wall for the kitchen and cover it with tile. It will protect your home while also adding an amazing design detail that you are sure to love.
Whether you have a massive patio or a modest one, there is space available for cleverly designed outdoor kitchens. Choose your appliances carefully, and make good use of one of the walls of your home as an anchor for the new cooking space.
