Park picnics are not out of date, Jill says, and today's homeowners often see their outdoor BBQ space as an extension of their indoor kitchen.
Just as personal taste determines the choice of your home, so does outdoor space.

"Think about how you will serve people.
For your convenience, if you want to avoid having to deal with propane tanks, consider connecting the barbecue permanently to your natural gas outlet.
Both the designer and the chef agree that the key to overall convenience is to plan the BBQ space as close as possible to the kitchen.
"For me, the gourmet kitchen includes an external kitchen and an internal kitchen," said Jill . ".
The internal kitchen can be used to prepare food, clean up after cooking, and can also be used for many other tasks, which makes the proximity of the outdoor space very important. "All high-

"Many people have well-designed facilities in the pool next to the kitchen," said Jill . ".
"It's really getting more and more popular in the last five years.
