It increases your resale value Outdoor kitchens have become one of the hottest trends in home design. If you ever wanted to sell your house an outdoor kitchen will increase your property value by at least a few thousands dollars. Not only will your house look modern and updated but the extra room outdoors will appeal to buyers. It gets you outside Lets face it; sometimes it can be hard to tear the family away from the computer television and air conditioning. Outdoor dining allows you to turn the everyday occurrence of making dinner into something exciting. Light a few candles turn on some music and enjoy the sun and fresh air. Without any extra hassle dinner has become a special event.
It makes entertaining easier No longer do you have to make trips to and from the kitchen to fetch drinks and food for your guests everything you need for outdoor dining is right there. You can feed your guests without having to interrupt your conversations. And if you need to make any last minutes dishes like an extra salad or appetizer you dont have to go inside and miss out on the fun while doing it.
When it comes to creating your outdoor kitchen the possibilities are endless. It can be large or small...from a simple portable or modular unit i.e. a grill with countertop space on either side to a grand customdesigned fully functional outdoor kitchen/living space complete with grill(s) refrigerators freezers sinks counters and lots and lots of storage space. They can be designed near pools on patios within gardens or almost anywhere that you desire to have an enjoyable outdoor living space.
Next you will need to determine whether you will want your grill to be freestanding or built into an outdoor grilling island. Custom grilling islands can help provide your outdoor kitchen with a more upscale look. Just like an indoor kitchen island the outdoor grilling island includes masonry with cabinets. Many experts agree that custom masonry grilling islands can add tremendous value to your home. You can also go with a prefab grilling island. These prefab islands come in a variety of configurations and exterior finishes. They cost less than more custom islands.
