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.

The crew at Dell is highly professional and expert at pool and landscape construction. All of the team from Anthony, Rich, Darek, and all are a pleasure to work with. The work is meticulous and they stand by their work. I highly recommend them for a backyard pool and landscaping project.

It is/was the best decision we have ever made regarding home improvements on any level. From the planning, approvals, construction, and clean up went exactly how it was supposed to go. No surprises, no hidden costs, no disappearing acts, and perfect execution for the entire project.

Several times over the project,  a team member would pull us out side to recommend how something should look or how it could be improved. Not only did this help the vision of the project but most of the times it actually cut costs. What contractor would try to cut costs?!? These guys really look out for the home owner. Whenever the next project comes along I now have only one phone call to make and that is to the team at Dell. My family cannot thank you all for creating this amazing paradise for us.

Dell build me a backyard that is so nice I never want to go anywhere else! The pool and landscaping they designed for us is amazing. The entire staff, from Anthony to the team installing the pool and pavers, were wonderful to work with and extremely professional.

We had Dell install our pool and it turned out better than we thought it would. Anthony laid out his plan for us in the first consultation, gave us a price that included everything so there were no surprises. His workers are highly skilled and genuinely nice people. I highly recommend this company.

They were great - very responsive over phone, undertook a complex spa installation within few days while the owner was not present at home. Would highly recommend!

I have always used Dell Landscaping for my pool or landscaping needs. Most recently I had Dell landscape a small courtyard at my townhouse in Mahwah, the job came out amazing, all my neighbors pass by and cannot believe what a beautiful detailed job was done in this little space.

Respectful and dedicated workers. Although the job ended up costing more than I was quoted It was worth the "extras" and the extra money I paid for the pool. Would definitely recommend this company and their workmanship.
