Outdoor kitchen: An oasis for your lifestyle

Martha Taylor-Brown ▼ | October 12, 2019
Outdoor kitchens are everyone's favorite, but what makes them so special? Here are a few details you may use to make yours unique and exciting.
Outdoor kitchen
Outdoor   From pergola to complete kitchen, make your outdoor space shine
PergolaAn easy add-on to every outdoor kitchen is shade from a charming pergola. A pergola is a welcome addition in any garden, and even more above the outdoor kitchen. It will create shade while allowing you to add different items and decorative elements on it or underneath it. That may be a seating space or even a sofa paired with an eating table for that outdoor vibe with a more laid back approach. Be bold, go big, and make it large enough to cover your new eating space in full.

Pizza ovenYou may add a pizza oven. Yes, a fully-fledged pizza oven! If you havve some space you can think you can make use of, let it be a "mini building" made of bricks, full of warmth that produces delicious homemade pizza. You will get that traditional look, great meal, and you will learn how to make excellent pizza, especially if you ask your Italian neighbor for an authentic recipe. When you do it, you will forget all delivery services and almost industrial pizza taste. What's better than that?

Wood tableWe know that part of that good outdoor feeling is standing around the grill and talking to your friends while eating some good food. But, why standing? Instead, put some wood boards down, bring in a cozy wood table, and enclose them with brightly colored chairs. Having the wood table will create that intimate feel while still being grand and it gives you a place to sit your guests while allowing your cooking space to be the main statement.

StoveAdding an outdoor stove to your grill area is one of the best ways of embracing your outdoor area and truly making it feel as if you were inside. The idea is to have a traditional-like stove outside where you can cook your favorite meals alongside your grilled items to give you that complete outside/indoor kitchen feel. Grill is fine, don't get us wrong, you may make some wonderful dishes with it, but with a full stove you have a complete kitchen when only your imagination is the limit. And you will feel like a real chef.
