If you are looking to be the envy of your neighbors as the ultimate host of backyard fun, an outdoor living area with an outdoor kitchen and a pool has unparalleled entertaining benefits. By including an outdoor kitchen and a pool, you can enjoy a relaxing day in the water, followed by dinner and drinks, all in the same outdoor space. This article discusses designing an outdoor kitchen adjacent to your pool and how Trex® Outdoor Kitchens™ can help you effortlessly achieve a long-lasting and enjoyable outdoor entertaining space.
Benefits of an Outdoor Kitchen with a Pool
Building a fully equipped outdoor kitchen that can accommodate a grill and bartending station adjacent to your pool has many entertaining benefits, as this setup gives you the opportunity to grill food and serve drinks poolside. One popular setup is to situate your outdoor kitchen in an enclosed space like a Florida Room or screened-in area so that you can lounge in the sun by the pool and then relax in the shade with food and drinks. An outdoor kitchen area with a pool provides a multitude of possibilities for relaxation and entertainment, guaranteeing the ultimate in summer fun for you and your guests. Be sure to take this into account when planning your backyard designs with a pool and outdoor kitchen.
Outdoor Kitchen Designs and Considerations
When building an outdoor kitchen near your pool, you will want to be mindful of the placement of your kitchen due to factors such as moisture, pool chemicals, and sun exposure. Placing your outdoor kitchen close to your pool is ideal, but you will want to be careful of contact with pool water and pool chemicals. You will also want to consider if you want your entire space to be exposed to the sun, as some shade might be welcome after spending the day in the pool. Placing your outdoor kitchen in a screened-in patio or three-season room will provide additional protection from the elements.
Various outdoor kitchen layout shapes will offer different benefits to your outdoor space, depending on your design goals. If you want a seating or lounging area between your kitchen and swimming pool, a straight run of cabinets is a great option. Other layout shapes, such as L, U, and G, will provide other benefits like outdoor kitchen bar seating and work triangles for outdoor cooking. Any of these layout shapes can incorporate outdoor kitchen island applications as well, which are great additions for bar seating, additional storage, and additional workspace.
