Electric Essentials to Set Up an Outdoor Kitchen

Do you love to spend time outside entertaining friends and family? Do you hate that you have to constantly walk in and out of your home to cook dinner when you are hosting? Why not install an outdoor kitchen? An outdoor kitchen is a great addition to any home that loves to host outdoor events. When it comes to setting up an outdoor kitchen, there are so many different things you need to consider before starting the process, and the team at Mr. Electric wants to walk you through it.

A lot of homeowners think adding an outdoor kitchen is work that can be easily done, sometimes even a DIY project. No matter how much DIY experience you have, you are risking ruining your project, and ruining your current home’s condition. There’s nothing worse than tearing down siding or starting an outdoor project that you don’t have the capacity or skills to finish.

4 Electrical Essentials to Set Up an Outdoor Kitchen

  • Permit

The first, and most important thing you will need when setting up an outdoor kitchen is a building permit. You cannot start any renovation project without this permit, or you will find yourself in some pretty serious trouble. You need to pay for and secure these permits before starting, and you will also need an electrical safety inspection once our team has come in and finished our work.

  • Determine your needs

When setting up an outdoor kitchen, you need to determine what exactly you want. Do you want outdoor appliances such as a fridge or oven? Do you need outlets? Do you want outdoor fans or lighting? These are all things our team will need to know so we can ensure you have the proper electrical wiring and hook-ups in your new outdoor kitchen.

  • Electrical path

Now that you know exactly what you want in your outdoor kitchen, we will need to determine the path you plan to use to get the electricity from your home to flow to your new outdoor kitchen. This means the Mr. Electric team will need to map out the exact route we will take, and this part of the process can be tricky, so we recommend you leave this up to us.

  • Circuit breaker

In any outdoor space, specifically an outdoor kitchen, you need to ensure you have circuit interrupters to ensure your home is protected from electric shock risks. Your wiring from your outdoor kitchen will run into your circuit breaker, so you need to ensure your circuit breaker is up to date and in good condition before starting this project.
