The classic American summer – kids playing outside, friends talking over a glass of iced tea, and delicious food on the grill. No summer scene would be complete without outdoor grilling. We love to be outside and cook outside when the weather is nice. And Tulsa families can now have all the conveniences of the indoors while they’re grilling outside. Complete Tulsa outdoor kitchens continue to be growing trend and for good reason.
Not only do outdoor kitchens in Tulsa make for a great “staycation” or the favorite weekend spot for friends, but these outdoor living spaces are an excellent investment for homeowners and can significantly increase their home’s property value.
Today’s outdoor kitchens can be as extravagant or as basic as you would like. These spaces can have stainless steel appliances like refrigerators, burners, grills, and sinks. They can have extra storage space for utensils and other essentials as well as granite countertops. It’s important to include enough counter space in your design to afford the cook adequate prep space. State-of-the-art cooking and grilling equipment including pizza ovens make outdoor entertaining easy and fun.
The outdoor kitchen can be situated close to the outdoor living area to keep the cook fully involved in all the action or separated depending on your entertaining style and how you want to utilize the two spaces. Bar seating can be built as part of the outdoor kitchen to allow guests to easily chat and eat with the cook. Often, homeowners have a spacious dining table and lounge area adjacent to the outdoor kitchen to fully enjoy their meal with friends and family. Placing the kitchen and grilling space near the inside kitchen makes for easy transport of food and other prep materials.
An elegant pergola or steel arbor may provide a comfortable covering for the outdoor kitchen space and create a more defined outdoor living space. Next to a custom pool or spa, these outdoor environments provide the ultimate space to entertain or just relax.
The amenities and styles of these outdoor kitchens are almost endless. Their style and theme can coordinate beautifully with the architecture and feel of your home to create one cohesive landscape design.
So plan now to enjoy the classic American summer even better with a complete outdoor kitchen area.
