Benefits of Outdoor Kitchens

Interested in creating your own outdoor kitchen? It’s a growing NC trend, and our Raleigh-based company is here to help! Read on for just a sample of the many reasons that an outdoor kitchen is the right choice for you!

1. Great Way to Entertain

  • The #1 benefit of owning an outdoor kitchen is you’ll have more fun entertaining! Grill up delicious food at home rather than ordering takeout from a restaurant for family gatherings. Plus, everybody loves hanging out by the grill to see what’s cooking! Think of it as a social gathering area!
  • Outdoor kitchens are much more than a place to put the BBQ grill. You can build up your whole outdoor area around the kitchen, adding patio furniture, patio heaters, and much more to create a comfortable outdoor paradise. It’s all up to you and your entertaining and cooking preferences.

2. Adds Value to Your Home

  • Great investment – Outdoor kitchens have a high rate of return on investment when compared with other outdoor home improvement projects.
  • If your outdoor kitchen is made with quality materials and components, it will provide a lifetime of enjoyment. Most BBQ grills and outdoor appliances are made with stainless steel and designed to withstand tough weather environments.
  • Nothing else looks more appealing in a backyard than a complete, functional outdoor kitchen. It will become an investment you’ll be proud to show off to friends and family.

3. Makes Cooking Easier

  • Cooking outside keeps your home from getting filled with smoke and keeps your kitchen cool. Cooking outside eliminates lingering odors in your house, especially seafood.
  • Without the extra heat associated with indoor cooking, your home’s AC won’t be running constantly to keep the house cool which can lead to lower utility costs.
  • Most outdoor kitchens include refrigerators, ice makers, side burners, and other components. Everything you need is conveniently outside, which saves you time and eliminates trips in & out of the house.

4. Extends the Living Space of Your Home

  • Build an island around a grill in your backyard and you’ll increase the amount of living space that the whole family can enjoy.
  • If you build under an existing patio or add a roof to your outdoor kitchen, it can even be used during inclement weather.
  • An outdoor kitchen will become the place where memories are made. Holidays, birthdays, and special events will be more memorable when everyone is gathered around the patio instead of indoors.

5. Healthy Cooking

  • Grilled food is tasty, less greasy, and better for you than nearly any other cooking option.
  • The high heat of a grill also helps food retain moisture and creates flavors different from indoor kitchens.
  • If you have special dietary requirements or food allergies, you can control exactly what goes into the food as well, a luxury you don’t always have when eating out.
  • Cooking at home is more healthy than eating out at restaurants – because restaurants add large amounts of butter, salt, and oils to your food to make it taste better. Grilling at home using simple rubs and marinades can be healthy and delicious!
