Five reasons to own an Outdoor Kitchen

Outdoor Kitchen Gazebo by Elegant Outdoor Kitchens

Elegant Outdoor Kitchens – Fort Myers, FL

Five reasons to own an outdoor kitchen

In this article, we discuss five reasons to own an outdoor kitchen. In Southwest Florida, cooking outdoors can appear as if it were a national pastime. For many areas around the United States, the statistics seem to support that notion. The reaction people have to a well built outdoor kitchen is an apparent reason to want one; however, there are six other reasons to have an outdoor kitchen. Let’s take a look:

1: Expanded Living Space

Having an outdoor kitchen and living area creates a welcoming atmosphere that offers extra space for cooking, dining, entertaining, and socializing. Built-in outdoor grills are a stylish way to open up a yard while gaining new cooking space. Outdoor rated refrigerators keep ingredients and beverages cold and conveniently located. Adding a kitchen sink to an outdoor living area means fewer trips back and forth for washing hands, dishes, and utensils. Advances in building materials and outdoor rated appliances have transformed yard space into elegant and eye-catching living areas.

2: Increase Value

Let us start by pointing out that installing an outdoor kitchen does not automatically mean that property value will go up enough to cover the cost of building and installing an outdoor kitchen. Outdoor kitchens constructed with the intent of using and enjoying the space rather than as an investment is a far healthier approach. The monetary value will have many variables; however, the real value of an outdoor kitchen is in the experience that it creates. For families, friends, neighbors, and visitors, outdoor living areas are a personal touch that welcomes and invites all to enjoy.

3: Save Energy by Cooking Outside

Moving cooking outside during hotter months will keep inside temperatures lower, and having less heat in the house means that air conditioners will not have to work as hard to keep interiors cool. Save power by maintaining the cooking temperature on the outside.

4: Save Money by Staying Home

Eating at restaurants can be very costly when done frequently. Homeowners who have put the time and investment into an outdoor kitchen commonly report eating at home more often. Rather than going out for barbecue and drinks, people invite guests to enjoy the space with good company. Many outdoor kitchens include wet bars in the design to accommodate entertaining, which brings us to our final reason for owning an outdoor kitchen and living area.

5: Great for Entertaining

Anyone with an outdoor kitchen can attest to how great they are for entertaining. Family, friends, and guests alike will enjoy the customized space. In many instances, the outdoor kitchen itself becomes a topic of conversation. People can socialize, watch TV and movies, play music, and enjoy the experience and atmosphere created by an outdoor living area.

So now that we’ve discussed some significant benefits to having an outdoor kitchen, you can follow up with our tips and tricks for planning an outdoor kitchen of your own!

Located in Fort Myers, Elegant Outdoor Kitchens bring quality and experience to Southwest Florida. If you would like to talk with us directly, you can reach us at (239) 229-9033.

Are Outdoor Kitchens Worth the Investment?

Close-up of Bull BBQ Grill and Custom Stainless Steel Doors and Refrigerator

One of the most popular areas of the home that is frequently upgraded by homeowners is the backyard or outdoor living area. On average, most can fetch a return on investment (ROI) of as much as 70–80%. I don’t know about you about you, but I like those odds. The outdoor kitchen upgrade and build serve a dualistic purpose to the homeowner. First, it can serve as a place where you’re able to entertain both family and friends, creating moments that truly make a home, a home. Second, and one of the most exciting aspects to the financially savvy homeowner is the return on investment or ROI.

MSN real estate experts suggest that building an outdoor kitchen can get you about the same if not more return on investment when reselling your home. Other experts suggest you can get more for your money; Zing adds that CNN Money suggested that some outdoor kitchens can fetch a 100–200% ROI. Further, it’s also an excellent way to add buyer appeal to your home investment.
