Without additional seating for guests, homeowners have to bring indoor furniture, like their dining room chairs, outside or have an array of plastic chairs available during larger get-togethers.

Straight to the Data - Your Expected ROI

In terms of trying to place an actual number on what a homeowner can expect as an ROI on their outdoor kitchen investment, the range is actually quite wide.
