Are Outdoor Patio Kitchens a Good Idea?

Here Are 5 Reasons the Answer Is a Resounding YES

Mmm…Can you smell that pleasant aroma? It’s the scent of spring teasing us as the winter months fade into a new season. Many of us can’t wait for the snow to melt, our flowers to bloom and the sun to shine more—because this means we get to spend more time outdoors with our family and friends.

So, how will you be spending those extra hours outside? Do you have an outdoor hub where you can sit and relax? Perhaps you’re considering adding a kitchen to your outdoor space, but wondering if it is worth it. In one word: Absolutely! Patio kitchens are one of the best investments you can make to your outdoor space. Pair an outdoor kitchen with some professional patio installation at your Essex County or nearby home, and you’ll be basking in summer joy all season long.

Big Benefits to an Outdoor Kitchen

If you need extra confirmation that an outdoor kitchen is a good investment, here are five great reasons.

  1. Adds outdoor living space
    A dedicated outside cooking space opens up so many possibilities. You can set aside that charcoal grill and opt for a built-in gas grill that incorporates outdoor burners, a pizza oven and stone countertops. Surround your space with some stone retaining walls and a cozy lounge area that includes oversized patio chairs. You’ll be the king and queen of neighborhood barbecues!
  1. Improves indoor air
    Cooking outside also eliminates cooking smells inside, which helps improve your indoor air quality. While the wonderful aroma of chocolate chip cookies and freshly baked bread makes a home smell delightful, fried foods, burgers, fish and steaks can give off scents that many homeowners don’t want lingering indoors. Move those dinners outside and enjoy fresher indoor air afterwards.
  1. Great for expanding your social circle
    A well-constructed outdoor kitchen brings all of the neighbors to your backyard! These designs are popular with baby boomers and millennials! Research shows both generations believe an outdoor kitchen space is an extremely worthwhile investment. And the results are successful. Meeting new neighbors and entertaining old friends on your patio kitchen is simply ideal for summer fun.
  1. Boosts your home value
    Not only are patio kitchens attractive and trendy, but recent reports from Zillow reveal that homes with outdoor kitchens sell for nearly 30 percent more than expected. How’s that for some good vibes? Any investment that adds value to your home is always a good one.
  1. Saves money in the long run
    While the initial cost of a patio kitchen can be a major investment, the financial payoffs are plentiful. By taking your cooking outdoors, you’ll save on monthly energy use! Plus, who wants to go out to eat when you have a premier kitchen in your own backyard? Cooking at home and relaxing in your own patio oasis puts money back in your pocket. Besides, who grills better than you? Nobody. That’s who.
