Beef Up Your Backyard BBQ With An Outdoor Kitchen: Ideas & Photos

With Spring weather well underway and sunshine soaked barbecues right around the corner, it’s time to break ground on backyard renovations for the summer! As the days and nights heat up, so does our desire to spend time outdoors. What better way to gather and enjoy our months of warm weather than with a beautiful outdoor kitchen? Outdoor kitchens provide you with the ability to entertain and dine outside with ease. To some, an outdoor kitchen may seem like an unnecessary addition to their backyard space. In actuality, outdoor kitchens add value to your home, encourage healthier eating, lower spending on eating out, and save on energy. 

We can build an outdoor kitchen around your needs and include grills, outdoor appliances like refrigerators, and countertops. Truly the king of the backyard BBQ, the grill is a no-exceptions, must-have for an outdoor kitchen. Because grills vary dramatically in capability and size, it’s important to know the model or size you want in the appliance before drafts of your design are drawn. After all, it’s the most important piece of the puzzle. 

If you’re grilling, chances are you’re handling raw meat which makes an outdoor sink a necessity. Aside from using it as a handwashing station for guests, a sink in your outdoor kitchen helps keep you and your workspace clean and healthy! We also can install bars and customized outdoor dining arrangements.

Having refrigeration in your outdoor kitchen makes it more functional, keeping the chef involved with guests rather than escaping to get supplies. What’s the point of having an outdoor kitchen if you have to run back and forth to your other kitchen for food and drinks, running up your cooling bill in the process?

For those who love to entertain large parties or have large families, an outdoor kitchen is kind of a no-brainer! Though warmer climates tend to boast a greater ROI, outdoor kitchens across the nation reportedly return 100% to 200% of the improvement cost. Now that’s cooking with gas. Having the option to cook and host completely outdoors is a highly-desirable experience for Americans who are cooking at home more
