Outdoor Kitchens

Outdoor kitchens are an outstanding way to augment any backyard deck or patio. Hinkle Outdoor Living can add these to an existing outdoor living space, or combine it with an array of other premium hardscapes. If you’re serious about taking your hobby as an outdoor chef to the next level, then this is an essential item for you.

What are Outdoor Kitchens? How do we Make Them?

These are a nice element to accompany a deck, patio, or swimming pool project. They come in a variety of blocks and methods. We can use lighter methods to do this on decks with steel framing, metal studs, concrete boards, and stone veneers with granite tops.

Of course, as you do all that, the contractor has to be very deliberate about weights and loads to make it more favorable on the deck. There are several ways for us to reinforce it from underneath, but it can be a struggle to put together a decent kitchen option with a deck. That’s why it’s important to have a professional with engineering resources to assist with this.

Like we said, you have plenty of selection choices: small or large sizes, L-shaped kitchens, straight kitchens, stone veneer, block, cedar, and several other materials. On top of the structure, we prefer granite because it’s durable and still cost-effective. Next, we focus on the interior amenities within the kitchen.

Outdoor Kitchens - Grills!

What about grills?

You almost cannot do an outdoor kitchen properly without a solid grilling arrangement. We normally install customer-provided elements for grills in the kitchens. There are 

Limitless options, of course, and many can fit into stainless-steel doors together with the outdoor kitchen. Everybody has their preference for grills, so it’s easier for them to find and buy one, then have us install it for them.

Outdoor kitchen projects are a pretty straightforward installation process. We like to do a raised drink rail on at least one or two sides of the bar. This gives you an additional row of seating.

It’s normally higher than the actual grill location, giving the opportunity to grill and chat with your guests. Then, there may also be electrical fixtures that require permitting, which we can handle for you. For example, many homeowners like to have LED lights around the grille area. You can also include other things like blenders and appliances to create the perfect kitchen.

What are the Installation Mistakes Other Contractors Make?

It’s important to guarantee proper venting for the grille station for obvious reasons. Other contractors may cut corners on this, which could lead to a fire. Venting simply has to match the type of grilling you’re going to do.

We make sure your outdoor kitchen will have enough room for every intended functional use. It goes back to our company philosophy on design, drainage, and function with everything we install. You should always make sure folks can still move around, given the positioning of the grill, bar stools, furniture, and other components.

Much Easier to Cook/Eat Outside All Year Long

Since we can set up fireplaces, electrical fixtures, and other heating/cooling resources, you’ll be able to enjoy this during any season. It’s even a wonderful way to avoid heating your home by keeping the cooking heat outside during the hot Kansas City summer.

Your Friends Will Want to Come to Your Parties

It’s way easier to get people to come over for a dinner party if your home is comfortable and appealing. An outdoor kitchen offers a tranquil ambiance for eating, sipping wine, and relaxing in the evening. It’s also one excellent part of an all-inclusive outdoor entertainment arrangement for your backyard.

Cook Right by Your Pool

You can even use your grill to cook breakfast after a nice morning swim. This is one of the most popular ad-on options for pool owners.

Enjoy Greater Home Value

This is one of several outdoor living space upgrades proven to add substantial home value. So, if you decide to sell your home someday, this will make it even easier to attract a buyer.
