Entertaining outdoors has never been more popular, so it only seems right that outdoor kitchens would be on the rise. They are the perfect complement to the pool, not to mention a great way to spend time with family and friends outdoors.

The most important thing to remember when outfitting an outdoor kitchen is that everything needs to be waterproofed. Even if you have an overhead covering, it’s not 100 percent reliable. With that said, here are a few things you may want to consider incorporating into your outdoor kitchen space:

  • Barbecue area to cook food, whether it’s a basic grill, a fire pit, a fireplace or an outdoor oven.
  • An outdoor sink connected to your home’s water supply. Popular choices that are easier to maintain outdoors are stainless steel or ceramic.
  • Countertop and cabinet materials. Countertop materials often include brick or stone, and cabinet materials need to be thought about carefully. Because some woods are susceptible to rot, a popular choice for cabinetry might be stainless steel.
  • Last but not least, think about the right kind of covering you want. Shelter is important in keeping you out of the elements but still able to enjoy cooking outdoors.

Because this is an addition to the pool area, have fun with the design but keep in mind the overall feel you are hoping to achieve with everything as one unit.  Contact the outdoor kitchen experts at Hobert Pools to get started on the outdoor kitchen of your dreams.
