When installing an outdoor kitchen, you will need to choose the right kitchen sink for the job. While indoor and outdoor kitchen sinks are similar, there are features you will want to make sure the outdoor kitchen sink has so that it will hold up in the elements of the outdoors.
Before we get started on what to look for in an outdoor kitchen sink, it is important to know that your outdoor kitchen sink will require proper plumbing and draining. You will need to decide if you want hot and cold water connections or just cold water. You will need to factor this cost into the total budget of your outdoor kitchen sink.
Once you have set up the water lines and plumbed the outdoor kitchen, you are ready to shop for outdoor kitchen sinks. You will need to consider the material, shape, size, and style of the many outdoor kitchen sinks and faucets to choose from to decide which one is right for you.
Your outdoor kitchen is not complete without an outdoor sink. With a little plumbing and a few decisions, your outdoor kitchen can have a fully functioning sink for you to use during any outdoor dinner party or barbeque.
Just make sure you clean your sink regularly as the outdoor elements can cause the sink and faucet to appear dirty more quickly than indoor sinks. For stainless steel sinks and faucets, use a quality stainless steel cleaner and a soft cloth to keep the sink looking like new.
