Cabinets and Sinks ForYour Northern Virginia Outdoor Kitchen

These may seem like unnecessary items, but don't be fooled — they are well worth the investment and will make enjoying your outdoor kitchen that much easier.

Even though your indoor kitchen cabinets are typically used for storage of flatware, food items and serving utensils, your outdoor kitchen cabinets are perfect for other uses as well.

The installation of kitchen cabinets in your outdoor kitchen allows you to store extra propane tanks, charcoal, a refuse container and more. Keeping these item close by — while still hidden from sight — makes the chef's life that much easier.
