When grilling and cooking outdoors is such a large part of your life that you want to add an outdoor kitchen to your property, you want that outdoor kitchen to be a low-maintenance and enjoyable space so that the focus is still on the joy of grilling! An important component of any outdoor kitchen design is the outdoor kitchen cabinets. This part can be tricky for a lot of people because almost all cabinetry for indoor cabinets is made of wood, which is obviously not suited for varying temperatures, rain, sun, and heavy cleanings. There are a few materials that are great for outdoor kitchen cabinets, however, and we would love to show you some options here at Danielle Fence & Outdoor Living.
When it comes to outdoor kitchen cabinets, we recommend taking into account where your outdoor kitchen is going to be located. Many outdoor kitchens are located close to the main house, but how close is important. Will it share an exterior wall? Is there a porch or overhang to protect your cabinets? If your outdoor kitchen cabinets are going to be seeing the full elements, choose materials that are made for marine environments. Things like Premium Polymer or NatureKast Resin are great for outdoor kitchen cabinets. Stainless steel also functions well as a material for outdoor kitchen cabinets due to its virtually indestructible nature, though it will be easy to see fingerprints on stainless steel. There are also options that can include stone, cement or other natural materials settled into a frame.
