Grill Islands: The Ultimate Addition to Your Outdoor Kitchen
If you are tired of cooking over your freestanding gas grill and makeshift kitchen area, you might be ready to add a grill island to complete your outdoor room.
Grill islands come as complete units. They include commercial-quality appliances, such as the gas grill (of course), plus built-in features such as side burners, warming drawers, roasting ovens and rotisseries, refrigerators, ice makers, built-in trash and recycling bins, storage pantries, prep and bar sinks, and, of course, plenty of counter space for prepping, plating, and serving. If you can think of something you want in an outdoor kitchen, it’s probably available.
Grill islands are, for the most part, completely customizable. You select an enclosure based on the size of your outdoor room or the size that will incorporate all the features you are looking for, then select the appliances and features.
As you are creating your outdoor kitchen and grill island wish list, keep in mind:
- What kinds of preparation and cooking do you want to be able to do? (If your indoor kitchen is a ways from where your outdoor kitchen and grill island will be, you might want to consider more storage and refrigeration space.)
- How many guests will you regularly entertain?
- How much space do you need to accomplish everything?
We invite you to come in to Surroundings and sit down with one of our designers to plan your outdoor kitchen. We work with several different grill island dealers and can help you work within your budget – and your wish list – to create the outdoor kitchen and grill island that will fit your lifestyle.
