BBQ’s California Outdoor Living!
Few things welcome spring and summer like the smell of chicken or ribs sizzling on the BBQ. Especially in California, cooking on the BBQ during the warmer months is something that promotes family time as well as social gatherings. Many people have always dreamed about having an outdoor kitchen but have put it off for one reason or another. What people don’t understand is that by designing an outdoor living space there is a return on the investment. Studies have recently shown that by having a well designed outdoor living space, the value of your home can literally increase $8,000-$18,000.
Outdoor living is something that Californians hear about all the time, and why not? We have beautiful weather-it’s only right that we enjoy it to the fullest! Outdoor kitchens are becoming very popular, not only because of how they increase property values, but also for the functional aspect.
An outdoor kitchen is a large permanent structure that ideally is situated close to a patio seating area. One of the beautiful things about outdoor kitchens is that they can incorporate virtually every cooking element needed to prepare an incredible meal. Outdoor kitchens now a day also include BBQ’s as well as sinks, stoves and refrigerators. This reduces the need to go back and forth between the kitchen in your house and your outdoor kitchen; everything is at your fingertips! Not only is an outdoor kitchen and BBQ a beautiful addition to your yard, but it is sure to impress your friends!
Outdoor Kitchens and BBQ’s: Designed to Entertain
It has often been said that the kitchen is the heart of any home, and it is no wonder why. Outdoor kitchens and BBQ’s allow you to expand your space and create an aesthetically pleasing place to entertain colleagues, friends and family. In addition, an added bonus with an outdoor kitchen is that the need for cranking up the air while cooking in the house kitchen is eliminated. -No more stuffy kitchens that you can barely breathe out of, with an outdoor kitchen and BBQ you can enjoy beautiful spring and summer breezes.
Things to Consider When Designing Outdoor Kitchens and BBQ’s:
If you are considering an outdoor kitchen and BBQ, one of the things that you ought to contemplate is how often will you be using the space. If you plan on using the BBQ on rare occasions and are mostly wanting just the option of having a BBQ, then you may not need or want all the amenities that a full outdoor kitchen can offer. On the other hand, if you are anticipating using your outdoor kitchen and BBQ a lot, then you may want to consider adding things like drawers, pizza oven, and a refrigerator.
In addition, the size of the space for the outdoor kitchen and BBQ should also be taken into consideration-as well as the size and amount of entertaining that you plan on doing. If you are planning on having large parties, then you may want to consider a large island to accommodate your guests. If you are planning on using it primarily for your family, then a large island may not be necessary. It is also important to keep in mind the size of the space that you have to work with. You don’t want your outdoor kitchen and BBQ to literally take up the whole backyard and in contrast, you don’t want it to look like a postage stamp either.
