If you’re like a lot of homeowners, one of your favorite things about having a backyard is entertaining your friends and family. For most people, though, this means little more than firing up an old-fashioned gas or charcoal grill and throwing on a few burgers. If you’re interested in something a little more sophisticated, you might be ready for a full outdoor kitchen.
Outdoor kitchens are exactly what they sound like: complete kitchens set up in your backyard or patio. Outdoor kitchens can be customized to meet your specific needs and budget, but most include features like grills, sinks, stovetops, ovens, countertops, drawers, and cabinets. Some even include outdoor kitchen appliances like refrigerators, dishwashers, and even beer taps.
If this sounds like a big investment, that’s because it is. That doesn’t mean it’s not worth it, though. When used to their full potential outdoor kitchens are worth every penny. Consider these advantages outdoor kitchens bring to your home, and if you’re in Connecticut contact Brothers Pool when you’re ready to take the next step.
Outdoor kitchens expand your living space.
If you want to add on to your home without dealing with the hassle of walls and roof, an outdoor kitchen might be just what you’re looking for. With an outdoor kitchen you’ve got more space for friends, family gatherings, and more. Large groups will have more room to mingle and relax, and even intimate gathering will enjoy the fresh air and breeze. If you have an awning or patio cover, your outdoor kitchen can even be shielded from the sun an inclement weather, becoming a virtual outdoor room. Want to spend more time with your family and friends? What could be a better excuse than a beautiful outdoor kitchen?
Outdoor kitchens make healthy cooking easier.
Almost everyone needs to eat more vegetables, and part of the reason why is because most people associate veggies with limp salads, greasy stir fries, and flavorless steamed dishes. With an outdoor grill, however, you can create lean, healthy, flavorful grilled veggies and meats easier than indoors. Add-ons like fridges, sinks, and counter space will keep you from running back and forth to your regular kitchen or juggling utensils while you try to cook.
Outdoor kitchens add value to your home.
If you’re thinking about getting an outdoor kitchen you’re probably not thinking about
moving any time soon. That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be thinking about your home’s value though. Remodeling jobs like outdoor kitchen installations can increase the resale value of your home and increase the curb appeal if you ever are looking to sell. Plus, all the time spent outside will cut down on AC usage and reduce energy consumption.
