5 Reasons Why An Outdoor Kitchen Will Bring Value To Your Home

Outdoor kitchens have become one of the most popular upgrades for homeowners to install over the past few years. If you’ve been considering having an outdoor kitchen installed in your backyard, but haven’t taken the plunge yet, now is the time to do so.

Here are some reasons why performing this upgrade will provide additional value to your home:

Enhance your Entertainment Experience

One of the most important reasons why homeowners install outdoor kitchens is that it will make summer far more enjoyable when you’re hosting friends and family for meals and just enjoying time together. The adults can grill on the BBQ and socialize, while the kids enjoy the outdoors.

Boost your Home’s Value

After having your outdoor kitchen installed, you’ll be able to enjoy a significant increase in the value of your home overall – especially if you’ve chosen high quality appliances to be installed. Regardless of whether you intend to sell your home in the near future or you’d just like to give its overall equity a boost, you certainly won’t go wrong by installing an outdoor kitchen.

Expand your Family’s Living Space

Virtually every property owner wants to increase the size of their home at some point but performing traditional renovations that involve adding rooms, building walls, knocking other walls out, and altering foundations ends up being extremely costly.

Incorporating an outdoor kitchen into your property usually won’t require any of the above to be done, meaning that it will be a far more cost-effective way for you to expand the living space on your property.

Keep those Food Odors Outside

Preparing and cooking food outdoors will help prevent your home from filling up with smoke and prevent food odors from lingering inside for hours after a meal has been enjoyed. This is especially true in the case of foods such as fish and deep-fried items – and during the hot summer months.

Simplify your Cooking

Being able to cook outside will prevent your indoor kitchen from becoming too crowded with people – giving all new meaning to “too many cooks spoil the broth!” You’ll also have everything you need outside to prepare food that is being cooked on the grill, so it will eliminate having to run in and out of the house to fetch utensils, cutlery, and crockery.

Why Now is the Perfect Time to Plan that Outdoor Kitchen before Summer Gets Here

Have you been considering the option of having an outdoor kitchen installed, but thought it would be best to wait until summer to plan it? If so, you may not be doing yourself any favors because summer will be the time that you’ll want to entertain friends and family – and it will be when you need your outdoor kitchen the most.

Here are some reasons why now is the right time to plan that fabulous outdoor kitchen for your home:

Lead Time Is Crucial

It takes time to get plans created, permits approved, and materials ordered and delivered.  The sooner you work with a professional landscaper designer to discuss and finalize your plans the better.  Additionally, landscapers start to get really busy once the weather turns nice.  Finalizing your plans now allows you to get on the landscaper’s work schedule ahead of those that wait to the last minute.

Be Ready to Entertain as Soon as Summer Arrives

Most households look forward to summer because they know that they’ll be able to spend as much time as possible outside – and if your outdoor kitchen has already been installed and set up, this will allow you to spend even more time out in the fresh air than planned.

Increase your Home’s Value

Once your outdoor kitchen has been established, you’ll not only improve your family’s quality of life; this additional entertainment space will increase the overall resale value of your home as well – which will come in handy should you ever decide to sell and move elsewhere.

Enjoy Several Advantages of Cooking Outside

Homeowners who had outdoor kitchens installed have noted that there are many benefits that can be enjoyed when taking food prep and cooking outside, such as:

  • Not being stuck inside while everyone else is outside. An outdoor kitchen allows you to stay connected with your family and friends while preparing the meal.
  • Keeping the heat from stovetops and ovens out of the house, resulting in less air conditioning being required inside – causing a drop in summer energy bills.
  • Preventing food smells from lingering inside your home long after meals have been prepared.
  • Less time will need to be spent keeping your inside kitchen clean because most meal prep and cooking will be done outside instead.
