Are Outdoor Kitchens Worth the Investment?

Investing in an outdoor kitchen

Before embarking on any significant project, you want to be certain that your efforts will be worth the investment. Designing an outdoor kitchen space is certainly no exception. Since the whole process can take months to complete – from the initial planning to the installation – your outdoor kitchen should be functional, durable, and beautiful for years to come. With long-lasting, attractive, and weather resistant stainless steel outdoor cabinets, read on to discover why Trex® Outdoor Kitchens™ is worth the investment.

Durable Materials

Similar to choosing durable outdoor furniture for your backyard or patio area, you’ll want to do the same for your outdoor kitchen design. It is vital for investment value to include outdoor appliances and materials that can withstand daily wear and tear and weather effects for many years. The materials you choose will also influence the overall cost of the outdoor kitchen. Powder coated stainless steel is the most popular material for outdoor kitchens, because it is beautiful, durable, weather resistant, and easy to maintain. While you can certainly choose cheaper materials for your outdoor living space, you may be replacing components every few years.

Outdoor kitchens have plenty of options for customizability, including many available sizes, door styles, handles, cabinet styles, outdoor appliances, and color options. There are different layouts, such as a U-shaped outdoor kitchen or L-shaped outdoor kitchen, for you to choose from. The customizability allows you to choose the most functional layout for your outdoor cooking space with a wide selection of amenities and styles. Choose from amenities such as an outdoor refrigerator, pizza oven, and more to tie your space together. Additionally, color and door options allow you to add your personal touch to your space to seamlessly blend your indoor living space with the backyard.

Entertainment & Convenience

Outdoor kitchens provide great entertainment value and convenience when you can include the necessary amenities – such as an outdoor grill and bar – for gathering with family and friends in your living space outdoors. In fact, a functional layout with all the amenities can eliminate the need for your indoor kitchen altogether when hosting an outdoor party. As a bonus, you will be spending more time outdoors in the fresh air as you host parties and prepare meals in your outdoor cooking space for your loved ones all year round.

Financial Gains

You will want to consider your financial return on investment when determining if an outdoor kitchen is worth the money. It is important to note that homes with outdoor kitchens tend to sell for more money than homes without outdoor kitchens, as homeowners and homebuyers recognize the value of adding an outdoor extension of the home. The financial benefit is the main reason why outdoor kitchens are continuing to gain popularity across the board.

Expert Consultation

Building an outdoor kitchen space is far from a DIY project. While it might seem like a good idea to design a custom outdoor kitchen on your own, we highly advise against it. The outdoor kitchen design and installation processes are extensive and require experts who can guide you through every step, especially if your region has specific building regulations. Beyond choosing durable materials, you are also investing in quality service, with the peace of mind that your outdoor kitchen installation goes smoothly and correctly.
