Outdoor Kitchens are becoming a normal addition to the American home. They are considered an extension of the indoor residence, acting as a place to grill, dine, and socialize. This isn’t something new though; Mediterranean people have been doing this for hundreds of years. In all actuality, it can be considered a part of their culture.
The American style outdoor kitchen is unique though, it draws inspiration from multiculturalism. As we all know, grilling and cooking styles vary from region to region. In an American outdoor kitchen, it’s not uncommon to see an Italian style pizza oven next to a Kamado style, or a traditional style grill. Just as we’re a melting pot for all the amazing people from around the world, we’re starting to see multicultural cooking and grilling influences in the American outdoor kitchen. I must say, it’s an amazing time to build your custom outdoor kitchen area!
Let’s face it, Americans like to invest! We want to know that the money we’re putting into something will eventually yield some type of financial gain. Well, you’re in luck. An outdoor kitchen area that’s professionally built will do just that, increase the value of your home. Not only will it increase the value, but it will be that much more appealing to the “would be buyer” if you decide to sell your home. This is one of those features that can tip the buyer scale in your favor.
2. Extends and Expands Your Living Space
The outdoor kitchen & outdoor living area is an extension of your home. There’s really no need to add-on an additional room to your residence. At least not one with four walls and a roof. Just build the outdoor retreat you’ve always wanted, one with a kitchen, dining area, and covered patio with lounging chairs. You’ll be able to celebrate family birthdays, holidays, or just plain days in your new outdoor living area. Now, there’ll be less need to vacation, because you’ll absolutely love your new “stay-cation” environment.
Grilling is already known to enhance the flavor of food. Even more so when the food is from your own grill, it’s just better! It also allows you to experiment with grilling styles along with cooking the food to your own taste. The best part is that you know, without a doubt, the source of your food. You’ll be able to cook much leaner and healthier meals from your own grill too. Since most the fat and grease ends up dripping off the meat, this will make your home grilled meals that much healthier.
4. Great for Entertaining Family and Loved Ones
Did we mention the outdoor entertainment value! Yea, one of the best parts. Your new outdoor kitchen area will allow you to truly entertain your guests. Opening both the interior and exterior of your home to your guests will make entertaining easy and effortless, like a summer breeze. You’ll be a source of envy from all your family and friends. The possibilities are endless.
5. Keeps Cooking Smells Outside
When you cook that fresh Salmon you just purchased from the market, the last thing you’re thinking about is your home smelling like fish for the next few days. We all love the delicious smell of great food, but we don’t want our furniture, clothes, and other valuables smelling like it. One of the best reasons for owning an outdoor kitchen area is this very fact. You’re able to keep those smells out of your primary living area. With an outdoor kitchen area, you can keep your home smelling like “Summer Rain”, or whatever other fragrance you prefer.
There are countless other benefits and reasons to build a custom outdoor kitchen & living area. They end up being a special place where you and your loved ones can enjoy each other’s company. This is by far the most valuable aspect of this construction concept. You’ll have a place to socialize, making lovely memories while enjoying the people who really matter in life.
