Outdoor Bar Cabinets

Updated

Question: What’s the best way to bring the indoors outdoors? Answer: With an outdoor kitchen! For that, you’ll need an outdoor bar cabinet. A bar cabinet can be a standalone outdoor addition or part of a full outdoor kitchen. Bars are usually higher than a standard countertop so that you can stand or sit at them. Standalone bar cabinets are usually attached to a countertop or overlook the grill area. Look for a bar top that is a flexible space, wide enough to prep and set out food.

Buying Guide

An outdoor bar cabinet is an excellent addition to your patio entertaining set, and by choosing a durable material, you can ensure that it lasts for the long haul. One of the best materials you can use for outdoor furniture is stainless steel because it’s weather-resistant and holds up well against staining and corrosion.

If you prefer wood for your outdoor bar cabinets, consider choosing materials that can sustain exposure to moisture and the elements. Teak, bamboo, and cypress are excellent choices for the patio. Teak will gray with age when left outdoors, but even then, it maintains a gorgeous rustic aesthetic.

You can take care of an outdoor bar cabinet by cleaning it out routinely, covering it with a tarp if it’s exposed to the elements when not in use, and by sealing any wood elements of your outdoor bar cabinet with a water-resistant lacquer. Set aside time on a routine basis to sweep out dust, leaves, or other external irritants so you don’t have any unpleasant surprises when you need to use this feature!
