Creating a beautiful and functional outdoor space is so much more than a grill on the back deck and a patio table and chairs. People are extending their living space outdoors in bigger, inventive ways, and it not only increases the value of their homes, it is making them more enjoyable for entertaining and everyday life, year-round.
“Much like building or remodeling indoors, the outdoor space starts with the kitchen,” said Chris Walsh, president of Luwa Luxury Products. Luwa is a one-stop resource for luxury appliances and has worked with industry partners to create some of the best indoor and outdoor kitchens in the Northwest. “Just as you would indoors, you want a pop of color and smart design with the luxury to cook outside as you would indoors. You want a solid surface countertop, storage for dishes and grilling accessories, a fridge or two, extra storage, and maybe a little more. In other words, you’ll want a full outdoor kitchen with all the latest options in performance and design that will last for years to come.”
Once you come to a decision on the look and feel of your outdoor kitchen, it’s time to lay out the rest of your outdoor space — everything from choosing the decking materials to utilizing the design based on the location of the home comes into play. A great outdoor space will get as much play (or more) as an indoor kitchen with proper planning; execution; and, of course, imagination.
