Orange County, CA (PRWEB) August 09, 2012
Outdoor entertainment areas used to consist of nothing more than a table, chairs and grill. Now homeowners are taking it to the next level by building beautiful outdoor kitchens. As homeowners extend their living space to the outdoors, an outdoor kitchen and entertainment area fits right in to the landscape. Outdoor entertaining is not just about the grill, but the full outdoor experience.
“The secret to a successful outdoor kitchen is planning, said Steve Luna, Owner of Solage Landscape Exteriors. A landscape designer can evaluate the yard and design an individual plan that usually includes excavating, running electrical lines and pouring concrete. “An outdoor kitchen should be an extension of your home, so it is good to utilize materials that match the exterior of your home and fit with the design, suggests Steve.
Outdoor kitchens are as individual as the homeowner is, they can be simple or elaborate. There is plenty of outdoor kitchen equipment to choose from; a rotisserie grill, the increasingly popular pizza oven, wine bar and storage bins. Lighting is also important. The party may start in the afternoon but will most likely go well into the night. Be sure to give thought to heating and cooling sources like fans and fireplaces as well.
“When planning the dedicated space, make sure the cook is not isolated, it is good to incorporate seating around the kitchen area for guests,” recommends Steve. This allows the cook to also play host and participate in the festivities.
“Homeowners sometimes get so focused on the design elements, they forget to think about an overhead covering,” said Steve. There is a variety of choices from wood beams to bamboo for partial light or a more substantial roof to protect from heavy rain and wind.
“Having a second kitchen provides homeowners with the opportunity to build the dream kitchen they have always wanted at a fraction of the cost,” said Steve.
