Incorporate Glass Into Outdoor Kitchen

If you do a lot of summertime entertaining, an outdoor kitchen is probably high on your list of desirables. Outdoor kitchens have become exceptionally popular, and offer some dramatic advantages. Since your food prep space is outdoors, you’ll need to select materials that can take what Mother Nature dishes out.

Glass is a natural outdoor choice

Some surfaces are obvious choices for an outdoor kitchen. Impervious surfaces like glass and ceramic should be first considerations. These materials will not only perform well and endure, they’ll also look very natural among your other material choices. Natural wood, stone and brick are also likely choices for use in your outdoor kitchen.

The placement of your outdoor kitchen is important. Most outdoor kitchens are located near the house, to minimize the cost of running plumbing and electricity to the kitchen fixtures. In addition, you may be able to extend the existing roofline of your home to incorporate your outdoor kitchen into your home’s profile.
If you don’t intend to locate your outdoor kitchen next to your home, you can find other places that are suitable to host your outdoor kitchen. Other activity centers – like swimming pools, gazebos or beach fronts – can provide the ideal location for an outdoor kitchen.

Regardless of where you locate your outdoor kitchen, your choice of materials should reflect your outdoor hosting needs, and the reality of your outdoor environment. If your outdoor environment is predominantly sunny or very humid, you’ll need highly durable materials that are UV-resistant and weather resistant.
