Outdoor Kitchens for Long Island's Harshest Weather

Outdoor kitchens have quickly moved from being reserved for luxury custom homes to becoming mainstream. Maybe it's because COVID had us not only seeking fresh air, but more space within the home; a space safe to entertain.  No matter the reason, outdoor kitchens are on the rise.

Benefits of an Outdoor kitchen 

  • Increases Home Value - In fact Absolute Outdoor kitchen's study says a home with an outdoor kitchen can potentially see an ROI between 100% to 200%! 
  • Great Entertainment space - With the inventions of patio heaters, outdoor lighting, fans and more it's easier to make the outdoors feel like a room now.
  • Improved Heath & Wellbeing - Studies show being outdoors can improve concentration, memory and mental energy, not to mention lowering stress levels.
  • Keeps Smells Outside - Bacon and Fish are the biggest offenders in this category. Their smells can linger for days after being cooked inside. An outdoor kitchen can help keep your house smelling fresh.

 WeatherStrong Cabinet Box Construction at DirectCabinets.com

  Cabinet Construction: WeatherStrong cabinets are factory built to order with precision dowel alignment and a fast cure solvent‑free structural marine adhesive system that provides excellent flexibility, toughness and bond strength.
Installation to Exterior Walls: WeatherStrong can be installed indoors or out. To fasten cabinets to stucco, brick, or concrete block walls, stainless steel Tapcon® fasteners are recommended (3/16" x 2‑3/4"), sold separately. For base cabinets two fasteners are recommended, and four are recommended for wall cabinet installations.
Salt Water Environments: Oceanfront environments with salt air and sea spray will require regular maintenance and cleaning to prevent rust from forming on the handles, hinges and drawer runners. Clean stainless steel surfaces several times a month to keep the chemical reaction from the salt from gaining a foothold on the hardware. With regular cleaning, your cabinets will look like new for many years. To achieve maximum corrosion and stain resistance, the surface of the stainless steel must be kept clean.
