This year, entertain your family and friends in an outdoor oasis with your very own outdoor kitchen. Outdoor kitchens are all the rage and for good reason. Small touches can add dimension, style, and decoration when you transform your outdoor space into an extended living space.

All outdoor kitchens are fully customizable. Homeowners choose exactly which appliances, building materials, and additions they want for their home. Some of the most prominent features of an outdoor kitchen include a stove, grill, or oven, sink, countertops, and even tables or seating areas.

Why do you want an outdoor kitchen this summer? Let us tell you five reasons why summer is the perfect time for you to invest in this addition to your family's home!

1. An outdoor kitchen will increase the value of your home.

Most homeowners have so much useful, empty space outdoors. Take advantage and utilize that space by turning it into a full-functioning kitchen. This extended living space allows for a unique and valuable option that increases your home's worth, by adding a modern and luxurious feel to the outdoors, that combines both form and function seamlessly.

In fact, according to reputable sources, such as CNN Money, Remodeling Magazine, and About.com, outdoor kitchens can provide a return on investment (ROI) from 100% to 200% of the improvement’s cost.

Your outdoor kitchen will transform your backyard into a functional and sophisticated living space.

2. Outdoor kitchens are better for entertaining your guests.

Flawlessly entertain and cook at the same time, without making trips from the kitchen to the living room. The backyard is your oasis and the kitchen will be your focal point. See and be a part of everything, even while cooking for friends and family.

There are so many ways to create a welcoming atmosphere. One example would be to decorate your new outdoor kitchen for the seasons. Summer is the best time to add umbrellas, and bright colored furniture and accents, like potted plants. Also, strategically placed lighting systems will also help light up the best features of your new kitchen at night.

The blend of food, company, and nature make for a relaxing and enjoyable atmosphere you can cherish throughout the summer of every year!

3. Outdoor kitchens are synonymous with easy cleanup.

An appealing reason for having an outdoor kitchen is for their ease of cleanup. All-weather materials, such as stacked stone and granite, can be used in their construction, which means that outdoor kitchens can be cleaned by simply hosing them down.

Moreover, rather than concerning yourself with dishware and cutlery that must be washed afterward, you could take advantage of their paper and plastic counterparts and have them discarded in conveniently placed trash bins.
