7 Awesome Benefits of Having an Outdoor Kitchen

7 Awesome Benefits of Having an Outdoor Kitchen

In the past, most guests spent the majority of their time in your home. Now, things are starting to change. People have started to build outdoor living spaces that are designed for entertaining guests.

Many people have started to use the square footage of their backyards to make an entertainment oasis. These outdoor features include pools, firepits, and even outdoor kitchens.

Imagine the feeling of having your favorite guests over during the summer. You take a dip in the pool, maybe play some volleyball in the yard, and then sit down to a beautiful meal made straight from your outdoor kitchen. How great would that feel?

Here are seven reasons why an outdoor kitchen is a must when building your backyard entertainment oasis.

1. Outdoor Kitchens Are Great for Entertaining

The most obvious reason for installing an outdoor kitchen is the entertainment value. If you've ever visited a friend who has an outdoor kitchen area, you know how cool it can be.

Just imagine. You can serve drinks at the bar and socialize while preparing food. With the relaxed vibe of an outdoor kitchen, your guests will never want to leave. Not only that, having an outdoor kitchen makes it that much easier to entertain many guests.

You'll be at the center of the action without having to leave your backyard during a barbeque.

2. Outdoor Kitchens Increase the Value of Your Home

Many people are starting to look for luxuries outside of the house when shopping for their dream home. Having an outdoor kitchen increases the value of your home.

It's the one area of your home you'll never have to stage! Buyers will have no problem imagining themselves in the space and all the possibilities that come with it.

Even if you're not planning to sell your home, just installing an outdoor kitchen beside your luxurious pool can increase your home's value.

3. Outdoor Kitchens Can Help You Save Money on Utility Bills

Each time you grill in your outdoor kitchen, you'll be conserving energy. You'll save energy that would have been used in your indoor kitchen. You can take some of those savings to invest in a fire pit or a patio area.

Each time you bake, fry, or roast food in your indoor kitchen, you're inadvertently increasing the temperature inside your home. That kicks your air conditioning on wasting money. Cooking outside, you'll save on electricity and air conditioning.

On the contrary, you can buy a propane canister for $20 and use it for the summer. It's a great way to save on your utility bills.

4. Outdoor Kitchens Keep the Stinky Smells Outside

Sometimes the things we love to eat don't smell too good. Fish is an excellent example. When you cook in your outdoor kitchen, you keep the smells outside.

Some odors can linger for days, but with an outdoor kitchen, that can be a problem of the past. Cooking your favorite odoriferous foods never felt so good!

You can cook all day if you want and never have to deal with the terrible smells that linger in your kitchen.

5. Outdoor Kitchens Expand Your Living Space

When you create a backyard made for entertaining, you expand your living space. Not only will you enjoy it when you have friends over, but you'll also love spending time out back when it's just the family.

Having an expanded living space helps you not feel so cramped if you have a large family or a smaller home. If you have kids, they'll love to have the space to hang out with their friends without worrying about keeping the noise level down.

You can even add lighting to your outdoor space to make it a functional space for day or night. It will make for the perfect summer space spent around the firepit.

Who doesn't love s'mores?

6. Outdoor Kitchens Can Help You Enjoy Healthier Food

Veggies may not be everyone's favorite food, but they sure do taste great coming off the grill! Having an outdoor kitchen can increase your intake of natural, whole foods that are better for you than processed foods.

We all know that processed foods are bad for us, but their convenience is hard to ignore. The great thing about using a grill is that it doesn't take long to cook food, everything tastes great, and you can even relax while cooking.

As a result, you'll look better, feel better, and maybe even shed a few pounds. You may even develop a taste for veggies.

7. You'll Save a Small Fortune on Restaurant Expenses With Your Outdoor Kitchen

We all know that restaurants aren't exactly cheap. That's especially true when you compare it to the prices of making your own food.

At the same time, going to a restaurant has the ambiance and entertainment we enjoy. It's more than just the food. With an outdoor kitchen, you can create your very own restaurant vibe in your backyard.

And because grilling is so easy to do, you'll enjoy making your favorite foods at home rather than dining out.

I have worked with Dell Outdoor on a  major backyard renovation-pool , hardscape ,and landscape, and  I am very pleased with the results and most importantly was pleased with the process leading up to the results. It was great working with Anthony and his most  amazing Team. It was a pleasure working with Rich, Darek , Martine,  Eric ,Rosa and each of their team members ( too many to list them all). Each of them, including their team members, were professional, reachable, knowledgeable, preformed high quality work ,and  were a pleasure to work with. I will miss all of them now that we are almost done with the project, but  I look forward to seeing some of them when they come to do our pool maintenance and winterization, as well as other small projects.

Everyone at Dell has been great! They kept us informed every step of the way, listened to our feedback and worked with us to turn our backyard into a family paradise. Throughout the process we had total confidence in their work and at no point did we run into any issues.  Anthony, the owner, stopped by several times to check on the progress and even followed up with a visit after they were done.  We are so happy that we went with Dell and would absolutely recommend them to anyone.

We could not be happier that we chose Dell Outdoor for our new pool project. The entire team is fantastic, experts at what they do, and terrific to work with. Our new pool area is stunning, everything we had hoped it would be. Everyone that sees it comments on how beautiful it is. Every aspect of the project was done right, and when unforeseen issues arose the Dell team addressed them head on and didn’t take the quick or easy route and cut corners. I have 100% confidence recommending them to anyone looking for a pool contractor.

Dell Outdoor is an amazing company. Anthony is great to work with and is very responsive to all requests.

We had a leak in our community pool for 10 years that went unresolved. We called Dell Outdoor and they were able to resolve the issue in just 2 short weeks. Unbelievable work and professionalism! Highly recommend to all property management companies!

A home project can be very overwhelming at times, but with the Dell Team, we knew we were in good hands. We recently had our Daughter’s 5th Birthday party and everyone loved the pool. They couldn’t stop talking about the rock wall that was built and the splash pad area in the pool. We weren’t 100% on the splash pad when we ordered it but now, we couldn’t imagine having a pool without one… we highly recommend Dell Outdoor!
