You've probably read articles that tell you why you should have an outdoor kitchen. And if you're like us, you started out skeptical. But think about it this way. An outdoor kitchen is basically an extension of your home. If you're in the market for a really good grill, you may be ready to build an outdoor kitchen for shade and prep space.
Now, we're aware that you don't need an outdoor kitchen. Saying you need one is like saying you need a garage. You don't. But you miss it if you don't have one. And once you get one, you find all kinds of ways to use it.
Why You Should Have an Outdoor Kitchen
Your indoor kitchen isn't that far away. But when you do food prep, you want to do it where you're cooking. Grilling is, by definition, a backyard activity. No one wants to haul everything outside one platter at a time, then back inside for lack of prep space.
Temperature control is another aspect of convenience. An outdoor kitchen gives you the flexibility to keep different foods cold or hot.
You'll also have storage space – probably the most convenient thing of all. Your grilling cookware, dishes, utensils, and non-perishables can live where you use them most often.
Let's not kid ourselves: one of the biggest reasons people get outdoor kitchens is because they're a symbol of luxury. Your friends will love it. And it'll add value to your home if you ever decide to sell.
You know what it's like when you have friends over. The cook usually has to stand at the grill while everyone else is indoors. An outdoor kitchen lets you chat with your guests while you're cooking.
Just add some cushioned seating (not those plastic chairs), a bar with a fridge, an awesome grill, some cozy lighting, and you're all set for the party of the year. That's comfort.
It turns out that an outdoor kitchen can be a great asset for your get-togethers – and even when you're just grilling with the family.
