Every year, kitchen appliances are being made stronger and more durable, making outdoor kitchens a viable option for Canadian homes. If you’re looking for a summer project, here are three reasons why you should consider adding an outdoor kitchen to your backyard.
1. Return on Investment
Right now, homes with outdoor kitchens aren’t extremely common in the Canadian market. That means your property is sure to stand out amongst buyers. The average outdoor kitchen will cost between $10,000 and $25,000, however, experts estimate that you will earn 100% of that back on resale. That means that in addition to enjoying your outdoor kitchen for years when it comes time to sell your home, you’re likely to make your money back.
That said, return on investment always depends on a few factors, including your neighbourhood. To find out the best way to maximize return, speak to a pro specializing in outdoor kitchens.
2. Livable Space
Adding an outdoor kitchen is also a great way to add livable space to your home, without A) eating into other areas of your home, or B) undertaking a disruptive interior renovation.
This extra space will make hosting a breeze in any season. Normally, as the heart of your home, your indoor kitchen will quickly become hot and crowded when hosting in the summer. With an outdoor kitchen, your guests will be able to spread out and enjoy some fresh air.
Don’t forget that your outdoor kitchen can also be used in the spring, fall and even winter months! If you’re struggling to find space in the oven for thanksgiving sides, or unable to accommodate soft drinks and wine in your fridge, your outdoor kitchen will be there to save the day.
3. Make the Most of Short Summers
Every year, Canadians count down the months until summer’s arrival. Once summer finally rolls in, we take advantage of every opportunity to spend time outside — why shouldn’t that include cooking and mealtimes?
With a beautiful and practical outdoor living space just outside, there will be no excuse to waste precious hours inside prepping and cooking meals. No longer will one or two family members be stuck inside ahead of parties and gatherings. With an outdoor kitchen, you’ll be able to take advantage of every second of the summer sun.
With tons of designs on the market, your custom kitchen can be completely customized to fit your backyard and your budget.
