Benefits of an outdoor kitchen

If you’re an outdoor person, then an outdoor kitchen might be just the thing for you! Many people would much rather be outside, breathing fresh air and enjoying the sights and sounds than stuck inside the kitchen behind a hot stove. Especially if everyone else is outside playing, why should you be one left alone inside preparing dinner? For this reason and more, outdoor kitchens are a popular option to consider when designing your ideal outdoor living area.outdoor-kitchens1

What goes into an outdoor kitchen? It all depends on what you want, and we’ll design the outdoor kitchen area to suit your needs. Some clients ask us to build a generous patio area with space for one or two dining sets. Others prefer to include a bar only with bar stools. Some clients want the works, including a sink, outdoor refrigerator, cabinets, grill, and plenty of counter space. Another popular option is to build a space for a Big Green Egg. The Big Green Egg is well-loved for its long life and consistent results.

In addition to cooking and prep space, some clients also like the addition of a fireplace or a firepit to sit and chat by the glow of firelight. When we build a fireplace or firepit, we work hard to design a look that will complement the look of the home and patio. When considering firepits, there are many stand-alone options to choose from, including wrought-iron looks from Hanamint, stone tabletop options from California Outdoor Concepts, and wood-look varieties from Ebel. Our construction team also has a lot of experience with creating gorgeous built-in firepits.

Often our retail team works closely with the design team to complete the look, recommending outdoor furniture, rugs, pottery and accessories. As a valued Extreme Exteriors client, you will receive a customer appreciation discount item on most retail items so that you can begin enjoying your outdoor kitchen to the fullest the moment it’s complete. 

So take a minute and consider how you might benefit from an outdoor kitchen. They’re gaining in popularity for more than one reason!
