Are Outdoor Kitchens Worth the Investment?Aug 24, 2022
Outdoor kitchens are becoming increasingly popular, especially in parts of the country where the weather allows for them to be used year-round. If you have the available space and are considering adding a finishing touch to your patio, you may be wondering “is an outdoor kitchen worth investing in?” At Legacy Design Build Remodeling, we believe the answer to that question is a resounding yes. Here’s why:
A great host is one that provides food and beverages and never leaves the side of his or her guests. And if you’re hosting friends or family on your patio, the last thing you’ll want to do is travel to and from the kitchen inside your home to prepare meals and refreshments. Not only does this inconvenience you as the host, but your guests may find it discourteous. Even having a standalone grill out on the deck can be a hassle to work with as you may find yourself running inside for the minutest of things.
When you have an outdoor kitchen readily available by your patio, you can cook your favorite dishes without missing a beat with your company. That’s because backyard kitchens can be installed with counter space and storage compartments, virtually eliminating any need for a trip to the indoor kitchen.
How many times do you eat out when you are with friends? A quick look at your bank statement may tell you that it’s too often of an occurrence. Truth be told, taking your company out to eat rather than cooking at home can be quite taxing on the wallet. It won’t take long before your investment in an outdoor kitchen begins to pay for itself, as preparing a nice, home-cooked meal for your friends every so often will help you keep more of your hard-earned money.
You don’t have to be a gourmet chef to appease friends and family with an outdoor kitchen. You’ll be surprised how far some simple patties will go in satisfying guests when paired with scenic views and warm weather.
Increased Home Value
Few people will try to argue that a standalone grill is more aesthetically pleasing than an entire outdoor kitchen. While a standalone grill can be quite unsightly, an outdoor kitchen—when completed by the right remodeling contractor—can put the finishing touches on a backyard and serve as a seamless transition from the inside of a home to the outside. This alone can enhance the value of a home. An outdoor kitchen can also increase home value with the extra square footage it adds to the home. Depending on how elaborate your backyard kitchen is, it may feel as if you are adding an entire room to your home that is stationed outdoors. Having an extra space that is also fully functional is very attractive to many prospective homebuyers.
