Add an Outdoor Kitchen to Your Home This Summer

Do you spend a lot of time during the summer grilling? If so, you should consider adding an outdoor kitchen to your deck or patio area. Here in Upstate South Carolina, we are fortunate to be able to spend time outside practically all year round. This is thanks to our moderate climate. For this reason, Chim Cheree The Chimney Specialists has helped many of our customers create the outdoor kitchens of their dreams! No matter what your budget may be, we can work with you to build a space that you and your family will love. We would like to answer some of the most frequently asked questions about outdoor kitchens.

What are the benefits of adding an outdoor kitchen to my home?

For frequent grilling, adding an outdoor kitchen is a no-brainer. You will be able to do all of your cooking in the same space, instead of having to go back and forth to your indoor kitchen. This can be even more convenient when you have to clean up after a night of entertaining. Another benefit has to do with keeping your home cooler during the hot summers we have in South Carolina. When you cook outside, you will not have to turn on your oven or stove, which can really heat up your home. Your guests will also enjoy being able to hang out with you while you grill. You may even get more volunteers to help you when you need it!

What do I need to consider when designing my outdoor kitchen?

Since your grill will most likely be the star of your outdoor kitchen, Love to Know recommends that you start by thinking about the areas above and below the grill. Be sure that you allow enough room for the smoke from the grill to blow away. You also want to ensure you provide adequate support for your grill that can withstand high temperatures. Think about the other appliances.  These include a mini-fridge, a sink, and even a patio heater, that you want to include in your outdoor kitchen. Plan for enough space to be able to move around and cook comfortably! Do as you would in the kitchen inside your house.
