Your Ideal Outdoor Kitchen

Posted by on

Whether you are hosting a party or cooking a routine weeknight meal, the kitchen is often the most popular gathering place in a home.  This summer, why not take it outside?  An outdoor kitchen is a wonderful addition to any home, and will make cooking something to look forward to every night.  

The team at Handy Andy Outdoors can design and build your ideal outdoor kitchen.  From simple to stunning, each outdoor kitchen is as unique as the landscape that surrounds it.  We offer customized designs that take into careful consideration factors such as:

  • Would you like room for everyone to sit together at one table, or a more casual seating area?

  • How many people will be using the area?

  • How much cooking prep work would you like to do outside?

  • What’s the best path for walking in and out of your house to the outdoor kitchen?

  • Do you need storage for outdoor cooking tools, or storage for seat cushions?

Grilling seasons is not limited to summertime here in Georgia, and we can also add features such as fireplaces and fire pits that will ensure you can enjoy your outdoor living area almost all year round.
