Must-have features

When it comes to creating a great outdoor kitchen, certain features are essential. At the very least, your outdoor kitchen should include a built-in BBQ, hot and cold water, a sink, a bench, and cabinets.

Stroud Homes believes that a great outdoor kitchen should also be conveniently located near the kitchen or butler’s pantry for easy access during clean-up. In addition to these basic features, we have noticed recent trends in outdoor kitchens that incorporate a bar fridge or kegerator, fire pits, and pizza ovens for the ultimate outdoor cooking experience.

Other popular features to enhance your alfresco area include a bar-style window, pillar-less stacker doors, and ceiling fans. The pillar-less stacker doors provide an uninterrupted view of the outside, creating a seamless extension of your indoor living space.

These features not only add functionality to your outdoor kitchen but also contribute to an inviting and comfortable ambiance for entertaining family and friends.
