It’s safe to assume that most people have been to a backyard cookout where the host threw some burgers and hot dogs on a gas or charcoal grill. While that cookout probably made for a good time, it would’ve likely been ever better if the homeowner had an outdoor kitchen.
Outdoor kitchens are becoming increasingly popular across the country, and for a variety of great reasons. Continue reading to learn a few of the top perks of adding an outdoor kitchen.
Entertain friends and family
The number one reason many home cooks add an outdoor kitchen is to host their friends and family members for dinner parties. Design your outdoor kitchen in a way that allows everyone to gather around and enjoy a beverage while the chef gets to work making a tasty dinner.

Make meal prep easier
It’s true that you can have everyone over for dinner and make a meal on a traditional grill. But constantly running inside the house to grab extra ingredients, side dishes, plates, flatware or anything else you need for the meal can be a real hassle.
With an outdoor kitchen, all of that is available at your fingertips. Plus, you’ll have tons of counter space to work with, so you won’t have any trouble slicing and dicing ingredients before you start cooking.
Enjoy more time outside
If you love breathing in some fresh air and enjoying the sights and sounds of nature, then ensure you get to spend the most time possible outside by adding an outdoor kitchen. Even if they’re not hosting a dinner party, homeowners with outdoor kitchens still love cooking meals out on their patio or deck instead of being cramped up inside.
Expand living space
Another one of the top benefits of outdoor kitchens is that you can use one to expand your living space. As long as you have a professional design and install your new outdoor kitchen, your backyard space can act like a bonus room for your house. By covering a portion of your kitchen and entertainment area, you can even enjoy this space regardless of the weather outside.
Increase home value
Even if you don’t think you’ll sell anytime soon, it’s never a bad idea to think about upgrading your home to increase its resale value. One great way to boost value is by installing an outdoor kitchen. Professionally designed outdoor kitchens have an ROI of 55 percent or more. Your home will be more attractive to potential buyers if you ever choose to sell.
