Outdoor kitchens have been gaining in popularity as outdoor spaces evolve beyond your basic BBQ, table and chairs. Outdoor kitchen lighting is a key component of an outdoor kitchen’s design – you need to be able to see the fabulous recipe you’re preparing, right? How many times have you had to walk inside to check and see if your meat is ready? We’ve even heard of people wearing head lamps while grilling outside when outdoor lighting isn’t sufficient! First thing is the lighting above the grill. Task lighting is the perfect choice in this instance. If your outdoor kitchen isn’t covered, consider installing wall lights on a backsplash or wall. If you have a backsplash that’s on the short side, try using deck or step lights to light your food prep area. Install outdoor pendant lighting over the bar and serving areas. This serves a functional purpose, but also allows you to bring in some style and ambiance. Lastly, while entertaining outdoors, you need to think beyond outdoor kitchen lighting if your kitchen isn’t attached to the house. Don’t forget to light the pathways around your outdoor cooking/dining area, it’s all fun and games until someone rolls an ankle or tromps through your flower beds.
