The Benefits of Having an Outdoor Kitchen

It’s that time of year again. Yellow buses. Packed lunches. New backpacks.

This can only mean one thing… school is back in session.

With the kids back to school and September right around the corner, we have many things to look forward to: fall, nicer weather, football season, the holidays and more. This is a great time of year to have outdoor kitchens on your mind.

Why Should I Have an Outdoor Kitchen?

  • Outdoor kitchens are great for entertaining. Here in the South, we love to entertain. It’s great to be gathered around a table with good food and great company. Yes, Louisiana is hot, but we’re fortunate to have many months of great weather in the fall and spring. This is the perfect time of year to spend outside swimming, grilling and entertaining.
  • Outdoor kitchens increase the value of your home. Building or adding-on an outdoor kitchen greatly benefits the resale value of your home. Some research says that an outdoor kitchen addition increases your resale value more than an indoor kitchen remodel.
  • Outdoor kitchens expand your living space. Having an outdoor kitchen allows you to expand where you are able to host, feed, cook, entertain and spend time.

    I like that you mentioned that an outdoor kitchen is great for warmer areas because you can utilize it longer. I’m from the south, and I hate cooking inside my home during the summer because it makes my house so hot, so the idea of having an outdoor kitchen is appealing. I have been debating having an outdoor kitchen built because I think it’s a great way to still be able to cook the foods I want and entertain guests in a fun, new area.
