4 Perks of Having an Outdoor Kitchen at Your Disposal

Cost-Efficient

No, building an actual Charlotte stone outdoor kitchen isn’t free, but your energy bills will be lower. The heat from cooking outside won’t raise your home’s temperature, which means your air conditioner won’t have to work as hard.

Boosts Mental Health

Mental health is a buzzword these days and for a good reason. Outdoor living areas are good for your mental health. Fresh air and sunshine are scientifically proven to boost your mood and lower anxiety. People who cook outside in their outdoor kitchen receive more of these and get an excellent boost to their mental health.

Removes Food Smells

Avoiding food smells may not be the most glamorous reason you’d build outdoor kitchens in Charlotte, but there is a good chance that not everyone inside the home wants to smell fish or boiled eggs for the next few days. With an outdoor kitchen, that smell won’t linger. The breeze will just blow it away.

Improves Your Waistline

Could having an outdoor kitchen help shed a few pounds? Well, maybe. Grilling enhances the taste of all foods, from fish to onions. Grilling is also a healthier cooking technique. When you grill meat, the fat drips off. Could a stone outdoor kitchen be the answer? We think so.

Stone Outdoor Kitchen Must Haves

It’s obvious that the grill is a major component of your stone outdoor kitchen. However, there are some less talked about features that bring your  stone outdoor kitchen to life and we want to give you the low-down.

Counters

Not the most exciting outdoor kitchen feature but one that is absolutely necessary. Consider the material, how it will play into your prep station space, and how its design will impact counter space.

Shade

Shade is essential, even with your outdoor kitchen. Al fresco dining is taken up a notch with a shady pergola over top and bonus--it will help protect your outdoor kitchen investment from Mother Nature.

Seating

 No one wants to eat standing up. Configure your seating so that it mimics what you have indoors but also ensure the chef, grill master, cook, is not too far away from the conversation.

Trash Drawer

You could just use a trash bag but a pull-out trash drawer is a bit more appealing. Save yourself all those constant trips inside.

Refrigerator

This seems like a no-brainer.  Save those constant trips inside and keep ingredients safely chilled until ready. While you’re at it, stick a few cold ones in there, too.
