How do you protect your outdoor kitchen against the weather?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

4. Go for a grill. The number-one way to get people over to your house this summer? Fire up the grill. It's truly an outdoor entertaining necessity. Koepke prefers building in a gas line for added convenience, rather than using propane.
Alex Jewett: Godden Sudik Architects added this to 9 Tips for an Outdoor Kitchen That Lets You Enjoy the Party
If you are looking for a way to improve your outdoor kitchen and don't want to build in a bar top, consider using a long table with bar stools. This also can act as a great prep area if you don't have enough counter space.

If you are designing an outdoor kitchen or looking for ideas on how to improve your existing outdoor kitchen, follow these tips and you'll find yourself right in the middle of the party, even while you're cooking. Add to ideabookby LORRAINE G VALE, Allied ASID Make sure your outdoor kitchen has all the essential spaces: prep, cook, serve, clean. This will make it easy for you to do all the work outside. Add to ideabookby Mell Lawrence Architects A satellite kitchen is perfect if you plan to do the bulk of your prep work in your actual kitchen. Locating your outdoor kitchen adjacent to your indoor kitchen will help you move food back and forth quickly, and if you forget anything, you know it's close by. Add to ideabookby Arterra LLP Landscape Architects Including a bar top in your kitchen allows guests to sit and talk while you prepare and cook. This brings the party to the cook. Many guests enjoy being close to the cook, and with a bar top they can watch all the action while still staying out of the main kitchen space. Add to ideabookby Sandy Koepke If you are looking for a way to improve your outdoor kitchen and don't want to build in a bar top, consider using a long table with bar stools. This also can act as a great prep area if you don't have enough counter space. Add to ideabook Keep the dining area close to the outdoor kitchen, too. This will give your guests a great place to sit while you cook and will keep the party close to the kitchen. Add to ideabookby b+g design inc. Put your beer or water tap at the end of the bar. This will allow people to come up to the kitchen without interfering with the cook. Proper placement of the mini fridge is important, too. You don't want too many people in the kitchen, and keeping these types of appliances at the end of the bar will control where people congregate near the kitchen. Add to ideabookby Bruce Palmer Coastal Design Much like having the dining space close by, having a living space close by will allow the cook to interact with guests while they hang out, waiting for the barbecue. Add to ideabookby Norelco Cabinets Ltd Large kitchens allow for family-style cooking. This is great for people who want to help prepare and cook the food. Make sure there is plenty of counter space for group cooking. Add to ideabookby Urban Landscape Whether with color, architecture or materials, make your outdoor kitchen a focal point. This will help draw guests into the kitchen area while you cook. This covered kitchen, which allows for the party to be centered around the kitchen, is a great example.
