Outdoor living areas are more popular than ever, and the The Woodlands outdoor kitchen is a favorite addition to many backyards and other outdoor spaces. Turning an outdoor space into a kitchen takes planning and design know-how. Here are some things to consider when you are planning your The Woodlands outdoor kitchen.

Assessing the Site

It’s best if you have a site that is located conveniently close to the indoor kitchen; this makes it easy to carry food and equipment back and forth. The site should be protected from rain, wind, and the sun, and should have the ability to be connected to the home utilities. You also need to be able to level the site out if necessary.

Grouping of Elements

The parts of your outdoor kitchen should ideally be grouped into zones or areas according to their use. For example, the “hot zone” will contain the grill, oven, burners, or other cooking equipment. The “wet zone” is for the sink, ice, beverage tubs, and the like.

Choosing Your Equipment

What kind of equipment is appropriate for your outdoor kitchen depends on the style of entertaining and outdoor cooking you’d like to do. You may want a grill, a pizza oven, a wine or beer cooler, or another type of kitchen equipment. Fans or misting systems are nice extras that help keep guests cool and comfortable.

Safety Considerations

Don’t forget to outfit your The Woodlands outdoor kitchen with its most important element: safety equipment. A fire extinguisher should be stored nearby; the whole family should know where it is and how to use it. The patio in the outdoor kitchen should be slip resistant and corners or countertops should be rounded. A gas safety shut off valve should be available and not too close to the grill.
