5 Things To consider When Planning Your Outdoor Space

Nowadays, we just cannot talk enough of outdoor living, specially after we unofficially kicked off summer 2 days ago. So, today we summarized 5 things you need to consider when you plan your outdoor space.

  1. Decide the location to build your outdoor kitchen. Before designing an outdoor kitchen, you will need to decide where you would like to build it: place your outdoor kitchen close to the house on an existing patio or along the home’s exterior walls, or a set-up further from the home for a more intimate experience. You will need to take note of the existing utility lines and understand which you may need so those installation costs can be included in the budget estimate. If you would like your outdoor kitchen to have running water, you’ll need to ensure that the proper plumbing lines are installed. The same is true for gas or electric-powered appliances. That being said, there are several thoughts to locate your outdoor kitchen: –Locate your outdoor kitchen close to the home. The closer your outdoor cooking area is to your home’s backyard entrance, the more convenient it will be for food preparation and transport. You don’t want to be so far from your indoor kitchen that it is a hassle to go back and forth, this scenario often results in rarely using the outdoor kitchen.
