There’s something special about meals prepared and served outside. The delectable taste of grilled meat, roasted vegetables, and chilled beer is an important part of every summer celebration. With an outdoor kitchen, you can cook for your family, a crowd, or even yourself at any time: no need to wait for a trip to the cottage or campground.
According to Forbes magazine, outdoor kitchens and living areas are increasing in popularity. The most commonly-requested features and appliances include:
- Built-in stoves
- Pizza ovens
- Fire pits
- Sinks and countertops
- Wine coolers
- Outdoor furniture
At Green Collar Landscaping, we can build an outdoor kitchen that lets you eat and entertain all summer long. From appetizers on the patio to full dinners under the stars, you’ll have a luxurious outdoor living space to compliment your home. In this blog, we’ll go over the different ways that an outdoor kitchen can make good times even better as well as add value to your home.
Outdoor Kitchens are GREAT for Entertaining!
An outdoor kitchen is the perfect place to entertain guests. While the meal is being cooked or grilled, everyone can gather around the grill or in the bar area and socialize. There’s a lot more room to hang out when you’re under the stars, and when you throw in some lighting, mood music, and comfortable outdoor furniture, you set the stage for a great time with family and friends.
Outside Living Spaces Add Value to a Home
If you decide to sell the property one day, adding an outdoor kitchen will make your listing stand out from others on the market and increase your home’s resale value. By elevating your backyard with luxurious features like a grill, refrigerator, and dining area, you can create the aspirational lifestyle that most buyers are looking for today.
You’ll Spend More Time Outside This Summer
There are well-known benefits to spending more time outside. They include but are not limited to:
- Healthier blood pressure levels
- Reduced stress levels
- Improved mood and focus
- Increases energy levels
When the weather is perfect, you’ll be more tempted to cook and eat outdoors, and your body will love you for it!
You’ll Spend Less on Energy Costs
When you cook outside, it doesn’t raise indoor temperatures like a traditional kitchen does. You won’t need to overwork your air conditioner to keep the house cool, so you end up saving money. On average, Ontario homeowners spend hundreds of dollars in AC-related energy and maintenance costs; by cooking outside this summer, you can soon save enough to cover the cost of your original investment in the kitchen and its features.
