4 Benefits to Installing an Outdoor Kitchen
Your backyard is your ultimate entertainment space. It is where you host parties, cook on the grill, and soak up the sun in the summertime. It also happens to be a great spot where you can boost your home’s resale value. Whether you’re looking to add something special to the space you have or you are interested in renovating your entire backyard, outdoor kitchens have a lot to offer for your outdoor space. Not convinced just yet? Here are four key benefits to installing outdoor kitchens.
1. Serious ROI
Home improvements typically come with their own fair share of ROI, but there is a difference between changing out your kitchen hardware and an outdoor kitchen renovation. Fortunately, outdoor kitchens give as good as they get. According to CNN Money, an outdoor kitchen remodel has an ROI anywhere between 100% to 200%. What is more, according to Zillow, houses with custom-built outdoor kitchens sell for 30% higher than expected. If you are looking for an investment that is great to use while you have it and great for resale once it is time to move, an outdoor kitchen is the investment to make.
2. Awesome for entertaining
Indoor kitchens can get crowded when friends and family are routinely going in and out to talk to you while you are cooking, to get drinks, and to mingle. With an outdoor kitchen, entertaining is a whole lot easier because you can cook right on the patio. What is more, with additional appliances in your outdoor kitchen like a fridge and sink, your guests do not need to move too far to get their beverages.
3. Keep your utility bills down
With an outdoor kitchen, you can keep everything you need for entertaining outside. That means you and your guests do not need to go in and out of the house, letting in hot summer air that makes your air conditioner work overtime. Then because fewer people are inside, you do not need to keep your air conditioner too high, which can save even more energy.
4. Keep cooking smells outside
Nothing beats the smells of barbeque while you are cooking. However, those smells can linger in rooms, on table linens, on towels, and even on your clothes long after the party is over. With an outdoor kitchen, you do not have to worry about the ghosts of barbeque’s past because all those smells will be outside.
