Looking for the ultimate outdoor entertaining space? Trying to expand your living space? And increase the value of your home? Your answer is an outdoor kitchen. Outdoor kitchens provide so many benefits to homeowners; to name a few, check some of the points alone!
Expand Your Living and Entertaining Space
One of the most significant benefits that come with an outdoor kitchen is how it expands your living space, and of course, entertaining capabilities. You can also extend your fun outdoor entertaining season by getting heaters, coverings, and shelter from snow and rain.
Consider Your Surroundings
As we brainstorm your dream outdoor kitchen design, we always consider your home's exterior to choose colours and textures that can complement what you already have and continue your current style.
Planning Your Layout
The layout is essential in an outdoor kitchen as it is for an indoor one. For many reasons, L-shape designs are the most common, leading to room division for the area. Another critical point in consideration of your outdoor kitchen design is the placement of your appliances, considering the best locations for hot and cold zones, and ensuring that you have enough food preparation space.
Deciding What Kind of Appliances You Want
The layout design is the best time to think about what types of appliances you are looking for in your outdoor kitchen. We encounter the most popular appliance choices: grills, smokers, refrigerators, a kegerator, and an ice maker.
An outdoor kitchen needs to be just as effective as your indoor kitchen; however, it also needs to hold up to the ever-changing extreme weather conditions we experience in Canada. Selecting durable materials that can withstand the elements while still being low maintenance is a top priority. Stainless steel is a material that is frequently chosen for countertops and appliances due to its durability. This will look sleek while holding up to the elements and remaining easy to clean and maintain. Whereas natural stone countertops can require sealing regularly.
Styling Your Outdoor Kitchen
Once you have the bones of your layout and design, it's time to pay attention to the details. Adding in garden decorations, potted plants, cushioned seating, and maybe something to emit heat during the cooler nights. With cushioned seating and upholstery, choose a fabric that is moisture-resistant and that resists fading from the harsh sun. Selecting accessories that are sturdy and durable is the most important thing.
Adding lighting is something you can add-in for both practicalities and for ambiance. You can incorporate different types of lighting for maximum effect. You can also consider options for mixing in some music and other forms of entertainment to your space. This could provide the perfect space for game nights!
With the warm weather coming, everyone is looking to truly enjoy their backyard and finally invest in the backyard of their dreams. However, it is essential to start looking around for your outdoor kitchen designer right away so that you can design, build, and enjoy your new space for the summer.

What Our Clients Are Saying...
"We are so thrilled with our vinyl deck! It looks amazing 3 years later and we literally haven't had to do anything to maintain it looking great. Thanks so much for helping us make a selection that we absolutely love and for being perfectionists in your work." ~ Mark F.
"Wow! What else can we say? We absolutely love our vinyl deck and the new glass railings! We spend as much time as we can outside and now we have the outdoor dining/living space we dreamed of. No maintenance, no staining, no nothing. Just awesome. Thanks so much!" ~ Sarah J.
"Highly recommended contractor for vinyl decking, vinyl membranes and handrails. Professional team namely Roger and Landon. A contractor who puts client satisfaction first is, without any doubt, a successful contractor and will have a sustainable business for sure. This is what Calgary Best Decks demonstrated on my vinyl deck and handrail project at my house. The guys even upgraded my vinyl membrane to the premium quality membrane at no additional cost to me just because they believed it’s better from construct-ability point of view." ~ Raed S.
"These guys were such a delight to work with. From the quote, to the completion, they were great! Excellent communication and we ended up with exactly what we wanted. I wasn't sure about having our deck done in the winter, but it worked out great. The weather even cooperated! It turns out they work all winter here in Kelowna. We had vinyl deck installed, topless glass railings and an outdoor kitchen. They had it done very quickly and we're so excited that our deck is ready for when spring hits! I highly recommend Canada's Best and their purple team!" ~ Chloe S.
