Outdoor grills and kitchens can be found in residential and commercial settings. They make sense for families who enjoy entertaining outdoors, and they add a unique touch to businesses serving food or hosting banquets.
The question is really whether they’re right for you. Here are several questions you can ask yourself:
Do you have the outdoor space for a built-in grill?
One of the smallest built-in models available is the BI Pro 500RB from Napoleon Gourmet Grills. It’s 30 3/4-inches long and 20 5/8-inches deep, but still enjoys 760-sq. inches of cooking space. You may also want to add additional features such as an outdoor refrigerator, wine chiller or kegerator. The built-in amenities have their own space requirements. With such a wide variety of outdoor kitchen options, there is something for almost any size outdoor area. An outdoor kitchen area will improve your ability to use the property as well as its value.
Do you have the kind of property needed to enjoy outdoor cooking?
Most people live or own a business in an area safe for enjoying outdoors. Very few situations can’t be changed through the use of landscaping and greenery to make guests feel safe and comfortable. The one exception might be an industrial location where smells or noise are a nuisance. Barring those situations, you can work with a designer to create an escape where friends and clients come to get away from the daily grind. Outdoor grills and kitchens add to the appeal, and for the right businesses, create potential for a secondary income.
What about your neighbors’ feelings?
Entertaining outdoors can create noise and it’s important to consider how your neighbors might feel about this kind of change. Before you go to the expense of installing an outdoor cooking area, you may want to tryout a portable grill or at least talk with a few of them about their schedules. If the guy next door works nights and sleeps all day, having parties every weekend will quickly lead to problems. This is especially true for businesses. Make sure your area is zoned correctly and secure any permits you’ll need before you invest in the process.
For most homeowners, adding an outdoor kitchen or grill allows you to enjoy more of your property more of the time, and to be more social in your time outside of work. They add value to your home and make life more fun too. Likewise, businesses can increase their reputations and their profits. It’s important to do your due diligence, but don’t let the what-if’s rob you of the experience.
