Constantly running from your indoor kitchen to the pool and patio area isn’t only inconvenient, but it can also keep you from sitting down and enjoy the company of your friends and family! Outdoor kitchens can be as simple or complex as necessary, from being a standard barbeque with an extra counter for food preparation and serving, to being outfitted with stoves, refrigerators, a sink and even a television.

5. Waterslides
