Now here`s an idea, build your very own outdoor kitchen. It`s a little more than a BBQ and obviously costs more too, but fantastic if you like entertaining outside.
Costs can vary from £500 – £50,000 and there are four types you can choose from:
A basic island features a grill, a sink and a little space where you chop or store supplies. It works fine for occasional light cooking but become cumbersome if you do heavy duty cooking or make recipes which require a lot of chopping and simultaneous preparations.
This configuration allows separate spaces for cooking and preparing food. Seating arrangements are usually next to the grill island.
The third common design is the U shaped kitchen island. It provides distinct zones for cooking, preparation and eating food. An advantage of this design is that food can be served straight from the grill and at the same time maintain a jovial conversation.
The luxury end starts around £30,000 and you get your own designer thrown in. They also feature ovens, fire pits and often have lighting designed so as to create a breathtaking aesthetic appeal. Practically there are no upper limits.
