The “Basic” Backyard Kitchen
If you just want to build a basic outdoor kitchen in Brockton, you’ll need to think about the elements that you want most. For many homeowners, choosing an outdoor living design that suits both their lifestyle and their budget can be a challenge, but it all starts with choosing the right materials.
If grilling or cooking will be your primary focus, you will want to invest in a nice barbecue grill or a built in range. Whether you want to add a touch of design by including natural stone kitchen cabinets will be your call, but many homeowners want to invest in these big ticket items and then re-use furniture, purchase second hand furniture or update old furniture with cushions, pillows and other textural items.
Perhaps a brand new natural stone patio or flagstone pathway is more your style? Whatever you want the focus to be on when you build a backyard kitchen, make sure to invest the bulk of your budget in that element or area. The rest can be added later or can be budgeted in, but don’t sacrifice the main purpose of your new outdoor living design by going cheap on the pieces that mean the most to you.
The “Hangout” Outdoor Living Space
Some homeowners choose to build a backyard kitchen where the kitchen isn’t necessarily the star. If entertaining is your thing, or if you are just looking to expand your outdoor living space with a few of the comforts of home, you might be more interested in creating a special area where you can do it all. A standard barbecue might be all you need, while your interests may run more to a beautiful stone patio with built in planters and a matching retaining wall to bring it all together.
If you are looking for more of a “hangout” than a “cookout”, you may want to spend more of your budget on a nice dining table, chairs, seating area and a couple of aesthetic features, such as a water treatment, fire pit, landscaping lighting and a beautiful night-blooming garden. Choose from a wide variety of pavers and blocks that can be used to create your own special outdoor living design. Nantucket pavers, Belgard pavers and Pavestone pavers are just some of the trusted brands we carry at J&J Materials.
