Getting Ready for the Christmas Barbeque

As summer comes around, we all want to make the most of the weather, and what better way to do that than having a great barbeque get-together over the Christmas holiday. It’s a great way to spend time in the holiday, and there is something special about outdoor parties, not to mention, you don’t have to spend three days clearing up your home afterwards as you would a party inside. Nothing beats relaxing with friends and family outside, enjoying the sunshine and food, and there is no better place for that than your own outdoor kitchen.

The thing is, that great party in your own outdoor kitchen is not as out of reach as you may think. With a range of DIY outdoor kitchen cabinets, you can put together a beautiful outdoor space that your friends and family will love.

For any Christmas holiday outdoor party to be a success, you need three things. Great company, great music and great food. You can take care of the first two easily, and the third is no problem either. While you can get decent results with just a BBQ outside, cutting food on an upturned crate or whatever is to hand, it is much, much easier to cook everything well with the right equipment. By having a good grill and a well organised outdoor kitchen, you can have all the tools you need to hand, and proper worktops to prepare food, no more balancing a tray on your knees, you can cook in comfort.

By surrounding your grill with easy to build, flatpack outdoor kitchen cabinets, you can create a kitchen as enjoyable to work in as any indoor kitchen, and then create some fantastic food for your party. The thing is, being outside is great, but having the best food to accompany it is what makes the outdoor party so good, and with an outdoor kitchen, you can do just that.

By using DIY kitchen cabinets, you can have that outdoor kitchen ready for your holiday bash and make some new Christmas memories that will last a lifetime.

Planning your outdoor space

An outdoor kitchen is a great way to use your yard space, adding another room to your home and making it easier to enjoy eating outside. With Outdoor kitchen cabinets available as flat pack DIY in a number of shapes and sizes, you can build a really useful, easy to use outdoor kitchen with just a little effort.

But, just because it’s outside, doesn’t mean you can just put whatever comes to hand wherever you want, to enjoy your outdoor kitchen space, you need to plan it, just like any other room in your home. The first thing to think about is exactly where your outdoor cabinets will be built.

Think not just about the way it fits, but how easy it will be to cover your DIY kitchen cabinets to protect them in the winter months. Also, look at exposure to wind and direct sunlight, perhaps locate your outdoor kitchen where you already have some protection against those elements. If you are building an entire space from scratch, this is less of a problem, as the outdoor kitchen cabinets will fit into the new space as planned, but for expanding your existing outdoor area, think carefully about where the shelter is in your outdoor kitchen area.

Once you have chosen the right space, then you need to work out the best layout for your DIY outdoor kitchen cabinets. Remember, you are building a kitchen, so you want plenty of storage around your grill to keep your kitchen tools, and a work surface in a convenient place. Cutting up meat on a tray may be ok once in a while, but if you want to make use of your outdoor kitchen regularly, a good work surface makes it a pleasure to use.

Once you have all the outdoor kitchen cabinets planned the way you want them, then it’s the fun part! That is picking the finishes and colours you want to use for your outdoor cabinets DIY fitting. Bright colours look great in the sunshine, but sometimes a subtler shade fits better with the rest of your outdoor space.

It is important to remember that planning your outdoor kitchen is just like planning any other room in the home, make sure the layout is practical as well as looking great, and always think about how the space will be used when choosing where and what type of outdoor kitchen cabinets are placed.
