Both BBQs and outdoor kitchens perform similar functions. They make it possible for your family to cook, dine, and entertain outdoors. They are very popular for a variety of high heat foods, especially meats and vegetables, adding flavor in ways that are not always possible with indoor cooking.
But, despite their similarities, outdoor kitchens have several advantages over traditional barbecues that make it a worthwhile choice for those that love the idea of eating more often outdoors.
Advantages of an Outdoor Kitchen
Outdoor kitchens offer several advantages over BBQs. Some of these advantages depend on the design of the outdoor kitchen, but we can create one in a style that fits your expected usage patterns. Some of the advantages include:
- Convenience – Outdoor kitchens keep everything you need in one place. Not only do you have the grill, but you also often have a sink, a refrigerator, a warming plate, lighting, and storage – all of which allow you to keep everything you need outdoors for easy access.
- Cooking Options – Depending on the type of outdoor kitchen, you may have additional cooking options, such as a smoker, a wood fire oven, and more – all of which add functionality and make it possible to cook everything in one place.
- Dining Areas/Hosting Focal Point – Some outdoor kitchens have countertops where guests can eat or space for guests to put down their drinks and socialize. All of this adds to the welcoming feeling of the property. Outdoor kitchens also create a focal gathering point that barbecues traditionally don’t offer for more than a few people.
- Increased Property Value – At the moment, people love outdoor kitchens. They are often willing to play a small premium for homes with these kitchens. That means that, in addition to functionality, you could a higher sale price for the property should you decide to sell your home.
Barbecues can also be eye sores. Even the really nicely constructed barbecues are still not designed to “fit” into a specific location. Outdoor kitchens are custom designed. This makes it much easier to create a kitchen that fits your landscape and your home, and is visually appealing to anyone that sees it.
