Outside kitchens, like the one below and the pool house kitchen in the cover picture are on the up. While they’ve been growing and have been popular in the United States, other countries have yet to pick up on the trend. Weather is a limiting factor to some degree, but it won’t stop this trend from growing in those harsher climates, such and the United Kingdom and other areas in Europe with questionable weather. In wet, cold and blustery environments, a sliding glass screen would work well to prevent the need for constant cleaning from weathering, while enabling versatility in its use, both in gorgeous and questionable weather conditions.
Keep it simple while adding value by using an island to significantly increase the amount of counter space in your kitchen. Having more counter space adds obvious benefits: more room for meal prep, multiple chefs and can serve as an eating area. Create contrast by using a different material or color for the island counters than you did in the rest of the room. If your regular countertops are white quartz, try black or a dark stained wood for the island.
In addition to creating more counter space, an island is also a way to add more storage and avoid kitchen clutter by using drawers, cupboards and shelves. This is beneficial especially if appliances take up a lot of cabinet room, or if you’re looking for a unique way to showcase certain items by using open shelving. Store dishes and pots within reach or keep less frequently used appliances out of the way. Another option is to use open shelving to display cookbooks or other items.
