Summer is winding down, but that doesn’t mean that outdoor cooking season has to end.
For some people, this goes without saying. We all know someone who enjoys firing up the grill no matter what it’s like outside.
But maybe you’d like to take things a step further. What if instead of just firing up your grill, you had a whole kitchen at your disposal in your backyard? It’s easier to do than you might think and can transform the way you and your family eat and entertain.
In this blog post, we’ll look at some of the benefits of installing an outdoor kitchen.
1. You’ll double your food preparing capabilities
When you cook outdoors, you can free up the oven in your indoor kitchen for making side dishes or for warming prepared foods.
You might also want to use the grill for side dishes or appetizers. Maybe this year can be the year you served grilled asparagus at Thanksgiving.
2. You’ll gain an extra space to entertain
The kitchen is the heart of your home. It’s where people tend to congregate when you throw a party or host a dinner. And while you’re happy to see your guests, having them all hanging around the kitchen while you’re trying to cook can be distracting.
But with a backyard kitchen, this won’t be an issue. Guests will have plenty of space to socialize, particularly if you add furnishings to your outdoor kitchen as part of a larger hardscaping project.
3. You can save money on energy costs
Whether you’re baking, frying or broiling, indoor cooking in the summertime drives up the temperature in your home, which in turn causes your air conditioning system to work harder than normal. But with an outdoor kitchen, you keep your indoor temperature down and your energy bill low.
4. You’ll avoid lingering food smells
Sizzling bacon. Fresh cut oranges. Baking bread. There are many inviting aromas we associate with the kitchen. But sometimes, smells can linger, as anyone who has ever cooked with garlic or made deep-fried fish can tell you.
When you have a backyard kitchen, this won’t be an issue. You can cook whatever you want outside and leave the inside of your home smelling fresh.
5. You’ll get more enjoyment out of your meals
Grilling enriches the flavor of your food. It’s also good for you. Fat drips off the food you’re grilling, making it a healthier option. And once you’ve found a way to cook delicious meals at home, you’ll be less likely to order takeout or eat in restaurants, helping you save even more money.
6. You’ll boost the value of your home
Any improvements you make to your home tend to increase its value, and the backyard kitchen is no exception. And because your backyard appliances are built to withstand changing seasons, they’ll be around for years to come.
