We all know the kitchen is the heart of the home and it can get pretty chaotic when entertaining a group of friends and family. Imagine the convenience and comforts of entertaining and cooking outside of your main living space in an outdoor kitchen. Outdoor kitchens not only extend the feel of your interior space, they can offer plenty of options for seating, dining and interactions with your guests. Sipping on a glass of wine while overlooking a beautiful lake or preserve and spending time with loved ones in your outdoor kitchen space still gives that “heart of the home” feel, yet it provides a space that is much more functional and diverse when it comes to entertaining.
The popular trend of outdoor kitchens also lends to a more diverse use of your outdoor living space. Imagine the possibilities… hosting a children’s pool party, adult dinner party or an intimate setting for two… being surrounded with the sights and sounds of nature makes any gathering more enjoyable, especially in the off season months here in Sarasota, Florida.
Another great benefit of including an outdoor kitchen in your home build or renovation is keeping the lingering smells of certain foods out of your main living space. Carpets, paint, wallpaper and many other materials that we utilize inside tend to soak up smells and cause them to hang around longer than we would hope. Having the option to prepare certain foods in your outdoor kitchen, even when not entertaining, certainly keeps your interior space more pleasant.
