Heres What You Need To Have A Perfect Outdoor Kitchen:
The basics: A good stainless steel barbecue grill is the backbone of your future outdoor kitchen area. These grills can range in price from the very affordable to the extraordinary extravagant. They can do everything now-a-days except cook your meal! All of our outdoor kitchens creations start with a well placed barbecue location and then expand from there. The access panel is another must have, and are included in all of our outdoor kitchen setups. The final must have is a good barbecue light! No more holding the flashlight in your mouth, while trying to sear your steaks to perfection. Basic counter tops include several different colors and types of natural cut flagstone. Flagstone counter tops seem to be the most popular choice and cost-effective installation technique for outdoor kitchens and barbecues. Our flagstone barbecues are finished with a chiseled edge, smoothed edge, and then can be sealed to help grease and food staining.
The upgrades: All of our Houston residents are content with the basics, but those serious about outdoor living have got to “splurge” with a few upgrades. Houston entertainment revolves around cold drinks and cool refreshments on a hot summer day. The stainless steel fridge or ice cooler is a very popular upgrade. A fridge can keeps drinks cold for whenever you pop out for a snack, while an ice cooler is a great investment for those who want to create a “free-for-all” at an afternoon swim party. Stainless steel drawers and cabinets create a “sealed” environment in which to place your cooking accessories, utensils, and seasonings. One can go as far as stainless trash bins, paper towel holders, and propane tank drawers. Our upgraded barbecues and outdoor kitchens have our preferred counter top of choice – tumbled travertine. Our clients tend to prefer our travertine counter tops because of their “high-end” look, price point and overall value. Travertine counter tops are easily sealed, easy to clean, and offer that Tuscan outdoor look that belongs in each of our landscape and swimming pool projects.
The “gourmet”: Few would argue that a dishwasher, warming drawer, or pizza oven would be a great addition to any household – but the truly committed have these items right there in their outdoor kitchen environments. The sky is the limit when designing your Houston outdoor kitchen– as this is intended to be the kitchen away from home – right in your own backyard! Our expert recommendations for “gourmet” counter tops are usually a solid outdoor surface like granite slab, granite tile, or porcelain tile. All of above selections are classy and elegant surfaces, easy to clean, easy to maintain, and stand the test of time. What more can you ask for in an investment like your very own Outdoor Kitchen and Barbecue?
