You don't have to go through a costly remodel of your backyard to enjoy the benefits of an outdoor kitchen. Enjoying a meal outside with friends and family, whether it was created on your stove inside or on the grill outside, is one of the finest ways to take advantage of the summer season! Gather these simple items that will be there for you every morning, noon and night, keeping you outside (and maybe even entertaining), more often!
It all starts with the right space, and an outdoor rug is a great way to define that space. This Anti Fatigue Deck Mat eases back strain while standing over a hot grill.
Make it easy to carry dishes to and from the kitchen with a dish pan or Collapsible Tub. This one folds to a third of its size for easy storage and transport. Keep it clean and close at hand for multiple trips into the house.
To encourage more eating, cooking and entertaining outside your home, keep salt, pepper, napkins and other must-have dining items handy outside all the time. You can even keep your favorite spices out by the grill, just make sure they are sealed with tight-fitting lids to keep wildlife out.
Invest in some non-breakable (plastic or melamine) dinnerware and serveware, like these Stackable Wine Glasses, to reduce wear and tear on the environment and save money in the long run!
And finally, where you can fit it in, a little storage goes a long way in your outdoor kitchen. The Barbeque Buddy With Wheels is a great option, as it rolls in and out of the way and has space for linens, dishes and cooking tools with a spice shelf built on top! The large prep area is an added bonus.
Just a few simple items like these make outdoor kitchens attainable for everyone, no matter what the budget. Now get outside and get grillin'!
