What to Include in Your Outdoor Kitchen

Outdoor kitchens are becoming more and more popular. They are the perfect addition to any outdoor space. Not only do they add convenience, but they make the perfect gathering spot throughout the year. There are many appliances and accessories you can add to an outdoor kitchen to make it custom to you. See below for a few options of what to include in your outdoor kitchen!

Built-In Grills

Typically, outdoor kitchens include some sort of grill. We tend to stick with the Napoleon brand of grills for projects we build. This is because they are one of the highest quality grills, for the price point, that we have grown to love over the years. There are so many foot items that you can cook and create on a grill, and that is why most of us love to grill!

Storage Units

Properly storing your outdoor kitchen accessories is the top trick for extending their lifespan. Heartlands uses the Fire Magic brand of outdoor kitchen storage inserts. From cabinets to drawers, their quality is top notch! Drawers and cabinets can be great for storing your utensils/grill tools, spices and more.

Bar Seating

Do you love to entertain or love to eat outside? If so, adding bar seating to your outdoor kitchen is a wonderful option! It can also help you save space outdoors to have bar seating installed instead of a large table and chairs. This is also a great way to have everyone included in enjoying the conversation, even when preparing a meal on the grill!

Trash Container

One of the most common accessories to add to outdoor kitchens is a convenient Fire Magic foot-operated trash container. A trash container of this sort will blend with other storage units like we discussed above. Trash containers are perfect for when you are cooking outdoors and entertaining. Many people also opt to have them near an undercounter fridge for easy beverage can/bottle disposal.

Drain your outdoor kitchen drains to prevent water from freezing and weakening your kitchen pipes.

Undercounter Fridge

Like other outdoor kitchen accessories, undercounter outdoor fridges have many benefits. They are nice to have when you are preparing to cook outdoors, as you can store food  before putting it on the grill or smoker! When entertaining outdoors, it is nice to have a fridge in your outdoor kitchen to help limit the amount of traffic going in and out of your house. The top two brands that we tend to stick with when building an outdoor kitchen are True Residential and Blaze.
