Summer is the perfect time for hanging by the pool, relaxing in the sun and, of course, enjoying a great outdoor BBQ. Chicago homeowners are finding that a simple charcoal grill on the deck doesn’t allow them the flexibility they are looking for. Not only are their menu options limited but they can’t prepare the amount needed for a larger party. More and more people are turning their outdoor space into an extension of the home by installing a fully-functioning kitchen right into their own backyard.
Here are three of this summer’s hottest trends for the Chicago backyard kitchen:
1. Easy Warmth
Any backyard kitchen needs a warming spot for people to gather. A fireplace is the obvious choice. But why spend countless hours gathering firewood and tending to an open flame? A gas fireplace adds the comfort of a relaxing hearth with the ease of being able to turn it on and off with just the flip of a switch.
2. Durable Finishes
Chicago winters are harsh. It is important than any outdoor kitchen has the right finishes and materials to withstand the frigid months. Durable stainless steel, brick and concrete are all popular material choices.
3. Zoning for Better Flow
Creating zones for different tasks can create a more natural flow to this outdoor space. A food prepping area, a cooking space, and a place to gather and eat are the top “zones” homeowners want in their kitchen design.
