The Brisbane climate lends itself to spending time outdoors so it’s hardly surprising that patio kitchens are extremely popular with homeowners seeking outdoor spaces which can be used all year round. Long gone are the days when it was the height of sophistication to have a built-in BBQ on your patio. Nowadays you can expect to see oversized grills, gourmet appliances, wood-fired pizza ovens, and granite countertops and if you happen to know of a good electrican and Brisbane Plumber you can enjoy other conveniences such as sinks, dishwashers, ceiling fans, and lights.
If you’re considering adding an outdoor patio kitchen to your backyard, then read on to learn the biggest benefits of your investment.
1. Adds value – Outdoor patio kitchens are considered a luxury and will make your house easier to market, should you want to sell at any time. When you compare it to other additions such as a carport, a patio kitchen will give you a higher rate of return on your investment. If you don’t have a large backyard then think carefully about the size of your patio kitchen. Many prospective buyers want a backyard that’s big enough for the kids to play in without it all being taken up by permanent structures such as kitchens and pools.
2. Adventurous cooking – Besides the flexibility of not having to cook indoors, an outdoor kitchen encourages you to be more adventurous and healthy in your food choices. Outdoor ovens, smokers, and grills bring out the fun side of cooking, letting you try out new techniques which are more conducive to cooking directly over fire than in a conventional oven. Better still, using an outdoor kitchen means that all the grease, smoke, heat, and smells are kept outside, which is a big bonus when it’s sweltering hot in the summer months.
3. Extends your living/entertaining space -It seems that no matter how much space you have indoors there’s never quite enough space for entertaining larger groups of friends and family. The obvious thing to do is to spill outside and when you’ve got an outdoor patio kitchen there’s more room to spread out in a relaxed environment.
