An outdoor kitchen expands your living area, adds a statement space to your home, and allows you to cook, eat, and entertain without the need to go somewhere else. A well designed outdoor kitchen can make your summer last all year long and add a unique feature to your home.
Outdoor kitchens can be incorporated into an existing space such as a patio, deck, or poolside, or can be built as a unique, standalone refuge.
Common Elements in Outdoor Kitchens
Outdoor kitchens come in many shapes and sizes, and can include any combination of a number of different elements, depending on you or your family’s needs.
Socialize with guests with a bar-like countertop space or use it as an area for preparing and serving food and drinks. A little extra counter space never hurts.
Grill & Smoker
What’s better than grilling out some hot dogs or burgers on a warm summer afternoon? With a built-in grill or smoker in your dream outdoor kitchen, we can install proper ventilation and cover to make your grill more than just a summer staple, but something that can be enjoyed year-round.
Sure, you could order delivery. Or, you could create your own pizzas right at home for all of your guests to enjoy.
Spending the day outside with friends or family? Reduce the need to go back inside for food and drinks by keeping it all helpfully tucked away in an outdoor fridge.
Keep all of your grilling and outdoor cooking tools stored in one place so when you’re ready to prepare a feast, you have everything you need at your disposal.
Easy storage for snacks, baking and cooking ingredients, and more.
Eliminate the need to lug around a heavy, ice-filled cooler by building one into your custom outdoor kitchen. Keep ice and adult beverages stored for enjoyment during your time outside.
Reduce trips inside by giving yourself somewhere to wash your hands, food, tools, and cookware.
Keep trash contained in a closed-off receptacle for convenience.
Benefits of Outdoor Kitchens
Simply put, an outdoor kitchen makes eating, drinking, and socializing outdoors more convenient. Rather than constantly shuttling between your outdoor space and the kitchen in your house, you can do everything in one place.
2. Make the Cooking Experience Social
Why miss out on the fun when you’re cooking? With an outdoor kitchen built into an existing outdoor space where others are hanging out, you can still be where the fun is happening while you prepare food for everyone.
3. A More Authentic Experience
Nothing quite captures the feel (or taste) of a grill-out like the real thing. The Fourth of July doesn’t have to be the only time you enjoy a grill-charred burger or hotdog at home!
4. Increased Home Value
An outdoor kitchen can increase intrigue and add to the resale value of your home. With an aesthetically-pleasing space that also provides real function, you’ll wow potential homebuyers.
