Outdoor kitchens have become increasingly popular in many homes today. This extension of your home to outdoors allows you to enjoy nature, interact with your family and friends and conveniently prepare the meal. Outdoor kitchens are uniquely designed to complement your home with many custom options available, but every outdoor kitchen needs a grilling area. If you love to cook for your family and friends and enjoy the outdoors, then you should consider adding a built-in BBQ grill in your patio.
Why add a built-in-grill in your patio?
There are many reasons why you should consider adding a built-in grill on your patio. A properly designed and planned built-in grill provides hours of entertainment, enhances your lifestyle and increases your property value. Other advantages are as follows:
Compared to the standalone grill, the built-in grill provides functionality and convenience while cooking in your outdoor kitchen. Customize your grilling area by adding cabinets and drawers for storing cutlery, spices and other essential cooking supplies. Stop running back and forth to the house or living inside with long-lasting unwanted smells and spend more time outside cooking and enjoying yourself, your family and friends.
- Improves your home’s curb appeal
A built-in grill in your patio is a sure way to increase the value of your home. Many home buyers are looking for a home that efficiently and creatively optimizes the use of both the inside and outside spaces. It is an investment that improves the quality of life at home, has a good return on investment and improves your home’s curb appeal.
One big advantage that outdoor kitchens and built-in grills offer to homeowners is the amount they can save on electricity bills. When you cook inside your home your AC tends to work overtime. If the weather is nice, you can turn off your AC and prepare your meals outdoors.
Installing a built-in-grill in your patio
Your built-in grill requires proper designing, planning and installation as it is a permanent fixture to your patio and your home. There are many factors that need to be considered when installing your built-in grill such as grill size and selection, safety features, electrical, plumbing, gas lines, local permit regulations and accessory options. Consider getting the help of a licensed contractor to install the built-in BBQ grill for you.
