Why Should You Build a Custom Outdoor Kitchen?

Undergoing any home renovation is a big decision, so you’ll want to weigh several factors before going forward. Luckily, adding an outdoor kitchen is a home renovation project that brings many benefits. Here are just a few:

Gain additional space for entertaining

One of the goals of an outdoor kitchen is to expand the living space of the house, giving you an extension of the living area where friends and family can gather in a relaxing atmosphere. It often transforms unused space into a place that quickly becomes the favorite area of the home. Add plenty of entertaining outdoor options with a backyard outdoor kitchen.

Lower energy bills

Using an oven and a cooktop inside the home during the summer can quickly heat up the home, causing an extra load on your air conditioning unit as it works to cool down the house. Keep the hot air outside and the cool air inside when you cook in a backyard outdoor kitchen.

Increase the value of your home

According to Rocket Homes, the average homeowner can expect a range of 50% to 200% of the cost of building the outdoor kitchen to be the return on investment. A well-planned and well-executed outdoor kitchen not only adds a luxurious feel to your house but also increases its value.

Add cooking convenience

By design, outdoor kitchens are often roomier with more space for helping hands. In addition, custom outdoor kitchens designed with plentiful countertop space, outside appliances, and outside cooking elements save time by eliminating trips in and out of the house. 

Keep smells outside

Cooking in an outdoor kitchen keeps offensive odors outside instead of lingering inside the home for hours or even days. Deep-frying and searing foods often leave strong odors that are unwanted inside the house. Why not cook outside and leave your indoor kitchen clean and your home odor free?

Enjoy the relaxing outdoors

Countless studies have shown the mental health benefits of being outside. Spend time outdoors enjoying the fresh air and sunshine while you cook your favorite meal, chatting with your family and friends while the night goes on. Improve the quality of your life with an outdoor kitchen.

Save money on eating out and enjoy fresh food

With built-in grills functioning as the centerpiece of an outdoor kitchen, you can cook many meals quickly and easily. Grilling can also be a fast, healthy way to prepare meals and many homeowners find themselves enjoying cooking at home instead of grabbing takeout.

Make the most of your backyard

Designing and building an outdoor kitchen allows you to make the most of your backyard space. Enjoy creating the ultimate backyard retreat complete with the cooking area of your dreams, cozy seating area, and fireplace. Create a custom retreat where you’ll look forward to spending your time.

Outdoor Kitchen FAQs:

What appliances can I incorporate into my outdoor kitchen?

We love to install appliances that make your outdoor custom kitchen as convenient as possible. We can install stovetop burners, mini-fridges, sinks, barn wood doors, wine coolers, griddles, and much more.

What maintenance can I expect with an outdoor kitchen?

The maintenance with an outdoor kitchen is surprisingly low. The area should be kept clean and free of any clutter and debris. Countertops should be wiped down regularly and sealed to maintain proper protection from the elements. During the process of building your outdoor kitchen, we will provide more recommendations based on the details you incorporate.

How much does an outdoor kitchen cost in Utah?

The cost of a custom outdoor kitchen in Utah depends on the project’s complexity and other variables. You could spend anywhere between $4,000 to $20,000 building your outdoor kitchen. The average price for homeowners is around $11,800. However, other factors may affect the final price tag, such as local labor hourly rates, sales tax, material costs, required local permit costs, etc. Fortunately, you can recoup those costs when selling as adding a custom outdoor kitchen could increase your home’s value.

What is a good size for an outdoor kitchen?

Designing a kitchen all comes down to available space in your backyard. The SBI design team will work with you to customize a layout that fits into your space without losing any of your desired features. Some of the things that many Utah homeowners enjoy in their outdoor kitchens are countertops, grills, sinks, cooktops, and storage. You can work with our outdoor kitchen designers to discover what will work best in your yard. Contact us to get started.

What is the best stone for an outdoor kitchen?

Certain building materials will work best in Utah’s outdoors. When designing and building an outdoor kitchen, you must understand which stone choices are your best bet for standing up to Utah’s unique elements. Some of the top choices are natural stone, concrete, or tile. You could use manufactured stone like quartz or recycled glass, but you must talk to the manufacturer to ensure that the countertops can withstand harsh environments. You can also talk with our outdoor kitchen designers to learn more about the materials available for our projects.

Will my outdoor kitchen be able to withstand Utah's winter season?

One common concern among Utah homeowners is how an outdoor kitchen will withstand the winter. First, our custom outdoor kitchen builders recommend sealing any outdoor countertop so it won’t be damaged by snow, rain, wind, and hail. We also recommend covering outdoor appliances when they aren’t in use. Following these few simple steps will help your outdoor kitchen withstand a Utah winter. 

Does my outdoor kitchen need to be covered?

Though it isn’t necessary to have a cover over an outdoor kitchen, it’s highly recommended to protect all the appliances and fixtures. Pergolas, gazebos, canopies, screened-in porches, balconies, and overhangs are all coverings that shield the kitchen from the elements.
