With stunning designs and functionality made for Louisiana, outdoor kitchens are one of the hottest trends in homebuilding and remodeling right now, and show no sign of cooling down. While they scream luxury and splurge, however, including a natural gas outdoor kitchen is actually an easy-to-justify investment that pays off. It will add value to your home, increase your living space, and provide enjoyment for a lifetime. Here are three more great reasons to include a natural gas outdoor kitchen.
When it comes to game-day get-togethers (and all things entertaining), natural gas outdoor kitchens are as game-changing as they are show-stopping. From complete kitchen setups built around the magnificence of the BBQ grill, to unexpected extras, like natural gas outdoor pizza ovens, outdoor kitchens don’t just let you take the party outside. They let you man the cooking duties, and still be the life of the party.
Takes Heat Off Your Indoor Kitchen
On top of encouraging you to eat healthy, delicious grilled food more often, having an outdoor kitchen at your disposal frees up your indoor kitchen. When you cook outside en lieu of cooking indoors, it also lets you avoid hot, smoky kitchens and unwanted food odors. You’ll probably even save on cooling costs because you’ll no longer have to crank up your AC on account of extra heat from your indoor cooking appliances. Plus, since everything you need is right there, you’ll never again need to run in and out of the house for a laundry list of items, or juggle your grilled entrée with whatever sides are in the oven or on the stove.
Options For Everyone
Whether your goal is to go big or keep it simple, a surprisingly large and versatile range of options makes it easy to suit your style, as well as your budget. Create your own setup by shopping for deals and buying components a la carte, or opt for a “one and done” approach with a selection of outdoor kitchen packages starting around $2,000. On top of high-performance natural gas appliances, like grills and side burners, you can also up the ante with specialty cooking appliances, like natural gas pizza ovens. While most standard outdoor kitchens come with refrigerators, ice-makers and basic storage units, there’s no shortage of features and add-ons to choose from. Examples include:
- Double side natural gas burners
- Warming drawers
- Double door pantries
- Roll out trash bins
- Bartender centers
