Looking at home trends the last few years, you’ll find that outdoor kitchens are a constant, especially for homes in the South. They’re a great alternative to cooking and entertaining indoors when the weather is nice, but are they worth the investment? We’ll help you decide with this breakdown of the benefits.

Extending Your Living Space

Many families yearn for just a little more room in their homes. One way to create it is by designing an outdoor living space that extends your indoor space. Of course, if you lived in a northern state with long, cold winters, it might be a different story. But here in the South, with our mild climates and nearly year-round ability to spend time outside, an outdoor kitchen is one way to make your house feel bigger.

Room to Entertain

Do you love spending time with friends and family but hate getting stuck in the kitchen while everyone else is outside? A great solution is an outdoor living space that includes a kitchen. Whether it’s a built-in grill with a counter or a full-blown second kitchen, having room to cook and entertain without being separate from your guests makes it more likely you’ll entertain and more likely you’ll spend time enjoying your outdoor space.

Add Value to Your Home

Many home projects have estimated returns on the investment depending on what it is. But, fairly consistently, adding an outdoor kitchen tops the list when it comes to adding value to your property. Estimates range from 100% up to 200% return on the investment, proving an outdoor kitchen is a sought-after feature for home buyers even in today’s market.
