Once construction on your patio kitchen has been completed, it’s time to decorate. There are several different ways to do so, but the best include a mix of both useful and decorative elements. These add to the character of your patio kitchen or grill island’s decor and make it a place that is not only functional but one that also represents your personality. These decorative elements don’t need to be large (although the first example here shows a different example), but they do need to explain who you are and what you plan to do with your patio kitchen.

Decorate Your Outdoor Kitchen Countertops

Decorating your patio kitchen countertops is fun. Since they are one of the most useful parts of your patio kitchen, you need to find the right balance between decorative elements and open space. You can add some plant life to your countertops. Yes, it’s already outdoors, but why not add to the decor by placing some potted plants or flowers near the sink or the cooking station?

It’s even better if these plants are ones that you can use for cooking. A small herb garden might be just what you need. These tend to not take up too much space, as long as you frequently use the herbs that you grow. Some ideas of herbs to plant on your countertop garden include chives, sage, cilantro, parsley, rosemary, oregano, and basil. These are very universally used, not to mention easy to grow. It will be nice to simply reach over and pick what you need as you cook. Your guests will be impressed – doubly so if your herb garden is set into a nice, double height metal rack consisting of embossed pots. Of course, if you don’t feel like growing your own plants, read on to find out about barbecue seasoning racks.


BBQ Island Ideas For Items That Are Both Useful And Decorative

Other things that you’ll need include a place to store your barbecue aprons, mitts, grill scraper, grate tool, flipper, tongs, and possible plates and silverware. What most people don’t know is that some grill manufacturers also have soft close, sealed drawers that can safely store all your tools and kitchenware.
