Being able to entertain outdoors is one of the key components of owning a luxury home. After all, what is the point of owning a magnificent place if you cannot share it with your friends, family and business associates on occasion?
Even better, with the great year-round weather that Southern California has to offer, you can easily entertain outdoors nearly every day of the year. To get the most out of your outdoor living space, creating a functional and beautiful outdoor kitchen is essential. To that end, here is a look at some of the most popular outdoor kitchen trends for luxury homes in 2015.
Take it Poolside
When selecting the right location for your outdoor kitchen, consider placing it near to your swimming pool. This way, you can easily grab a bite to eat between laps. Or, if you choose to do your own barbecuing, you can stay in the center of all of the action as you cook up something great on the grill. Using an outdoor kitchen at your pool party is also a great way to keep guests from dripping water on the inside of your home when they want to grab a quick snack or something to drink.
Stainless Steel Appliances
Stainless steel has long been the option of choice within luxury homes, but now this trend is heading outside to the outdoor kitchen. In addition to looking fabulous, stainless steel appliances are a low-maintenance and durable option that is great for outdoor use. Don’t limit yourself to just a stainless steel grill when choosing your outside kitchen appliances. A small stainless steel fridge and sink are other great additions to your outdoor kitchen area.
Install Multiple Grills
When cooking indoors, you likely have a stove top with multiple burners as well as at least two ovens. Why wouldn’t you take the same concept to your outdoor kitchen? To ensure you are able to cook up plenty of food while preparing it in just the perfect way, consider adding more than one grill to your outdoor kitchen. This way, you can adjust your setting so they are just right for the particular meat or vegetable you are grilling. Don’t forget to add a ventilation hood for each grill in order to keep smells under control as you cook.
When considering your luxury outdoor kitchen design, you should also think about the forms of entertainment that you wish to provide. Maybe you want to invite everyone over to watch the game while enjoying a little time in the pool. Why not add a flat-screen television with surround sound to your outdoor kitchen space in order to create the perfect party atmosphere?
Add a Roof
Putting a simple roof over your outdoor kitchen space can help provide an added level of comfort for you and your guests, particularly if the sun is a little too bright or you happen to plan your party on a rare rainy day.
These are just a few suggestions for creating a luxurious outdoor kitchen area. Of course, many of the luxury homes in Southern California already offer great outdoor living areas.
