The Country Outdoor Kitchen: A New Trend That Keeps On Giving

When it comes to outdoor living, the country outdoor kitchen trend in and around central Texas is just beginning. Residents look at their plots of land and think, "something needs to be done with all of this real estate, but I don't know what." Make the space you have into an area to enjoy outdoor living in your backyard and build an outdoor kitchen! It may seem a bit frivolous to install an outdoor kitchen, but once you dive into its world, you'll have many ideas for what your future backyard will be. Besides the gorgeous details, think about all of the uses an outdoor kitchen can have for you. Parties, gatherings, date night, random days in potential swimming pools, and much more are possible with your outdoor kitchen. Here are 5 reasons to consider joining outdoor kitchens trend!

1. Investment

See the opportunity of a useful outdoor kitchen as an investment in your property. If for some reason like downsizing or moving away, you sell your home, this outdoor kitchen works as a selling point as it makes use of more living space, as well as, a reason to up the value of your home. Plus, as a trendsetter, your gorgeous outdoor kitchen will be the talk of the neighborhood as your backyard stands out from the others and make them want to join in on outdoor living.

2. Entertainment

A lot of people wish they can entertain more people in their home, but sometimes it gets a little crowded. With an outdoor kitchen, especially one designed with shelter to protect your guests from the wind or rain, your parties can spill outside with no complaints or competition for who has to go outside to make room inside.

With swimming pools, an outdoor kitchen will be a useful addition so wet feet and dripping bathing suits don't cause a mess inside the house. Keep the swimmers outside and fed until they dry.

3. Expanded Outdoor Living Space

Maybe your property sits on land that faces an amazing view, but it's difficult to be comfortable and enjoy it. You bought the property partially for the view and you can appreciate it in your cozy outdoor kitchen while snuggling by one of the custom fire pits you chose with your family and enjoying snacks prepared outside. There's no more sliding doors slamming every five minutes and more time spent enjoying fresh air.

4. Financial Savings

Just as your country outdoor kitchen will be an investment, it can also save you money on your utilities! When you bake, fry, grill, and cook in your kitchen, it heats the house and you have to turn on the air conditioner. However, when you cook outside, you don't have to manage the temperature in the house and save some energy.

Your utility bill savings aren't the only wallet-friendly addition an outdoor kitchen can give you, but also all the money spent on getting food delivered or going out. When the credit card bill comes in, you won't see as many bloated restaurant charges that come with feeding a family. Instead, you can enjoy family time outside your home.
