For the last few weeks, I’ve been getting into the preparation mode for summer. I’ve showed you beautiful outdoor furniture from Restoration Hardware. As you get your patio ready for the warmer weather, don’t forget about your summer kitchen.
A summer kitchen can be a simple counter, and grill outside, or it can be as extravagant as your indoor kitchen. The more elaborate kitchens have: refrigerator, grill, sink, warming station, wine chiller, and lots of counter and eating space. Look at these beautiful images below to get your juices ready for summer!
Planning on building a summer kitchen? Make sure a plumber and electrician confirms your home can handle the loads of a summer kitchen. Gas lines may need to be run, and a new electrical breaker box may need to be added.
Summer kitchens are becoming more popular in higher price bracket homes. Buyer’s are starting to put a higher value on entertaining, especially outdoors!
