Outdoor living continues to appeal to homeowners, especially the outdoor kitchen. In a recent American Institute of Architects Home Design Trends Survey, the outdoor kitchen is one of the most wanted kitchen features in new architectural projects. Almost 50% of the architect who responded to the survey reported that outdoor kitchens are still growing in popularity. The Northern Nevada climate is perfect for an outdoor kitchen, with cool summer evenings and sunshine in the middle of winter.
If you're considering a outdoor kitchen, you may want to add a specialty appliance like a smoker, pizza oven, kegerator or wine fridge to your traditional grilling area. Stainless steel appliances are the most popular option for both indoor and outdoor kitchens. Before you purchase an appliance, confirm that it will withstand the elements.
In addition to appliances, outdoor kitchens also focus on an entertaining area. Choose comfortable seats and a functional table that will stand up to wind and the elements.
