Hot Dining Hub: Outdoor Kitchens
Outdoor kitchens are increasing in popularity.
“People have a higher expectations for their exterior spaces since HGTV came around,” said Scott Redmon, owner of Alfresco Living in Maitland, Fla.
Besides a grill, fired by gas, wood or charcoal, more home owners are adding keg-tappers, wine chillers, icemakers and warming cabinets.
Outdoor kitchen designers also recommend good task and ambient lighting, an easy-to-clean countertop material and a design that avoids heat retention.
