Colors are changing and the days are getting shorter. For some, it might seem like the days of outdoor entertaining are over. Time to winterize your outdoor kitchen and stay inside until the big thaw. We at Graham Landscape and Design are here to tell you this does not have to be the case. We have all of the tips and ideas to make sure that you can enjoy your outdoor space year round. So, call your friends because your fun outside has only just begun.
One of the biggest concerns, when the weather starts to turn, is warmth. Make sure your space has heating elements such as a fireplace or outdoor heaters to keep everyone nice and cozy, even in the coldest months. Fireplaces can also add a sense of elegance and class, further adding to the enjoyment of your outdoor space.
Often overlooked when building an outdoor kitchen is location and cover. Make sure to build your outdoor kitchen where it is best protected from elements such as wind and rain. In addition, consider building a tall cover for your outdoor space to keep you dry during the wet months. In summer months, the cover can also keep you out of direct sunlight, making the space comfortable all year long.
With shorter days, lighting is an important element to ensure that you get the most out of your additional space. Many options are available when it comes to adding lighting elements, and often the choice comes down to personal taste and style. Just make sure that you don’t skip this step, and year-round enjoyment will not be a problem.
If you are trying to create a space that can be utilized all year, make sure you plan from the beginning. Choose durable materials that can withstand the elements. Choosing the right materials will protect your investment and ensure ease of maintenance.
