5 Reasons to Choose an Archadeck of Austin Outdoor Kitchen

Great for entertaining

A top benefit of having an Archadeck of Austin outdoor kitchen is they create a perfect space for outdoor entertaining. Just like the old saying the kitchen is the heart of the home goes, the same can be said of outdoor kitchens. When food is prepared outdoors, guests can gather around and socialize as dinner is being prepared. It might get crowded in an indoor kitchen when everyone hangs out with the cook, but in outdoor kitchen environment, there’s much more space to mingle.

Expands your outdoor living space

If you are planning a covered patio or porch addition an outdoor kitchen is the perfect ingredient to complete your outdoor living recipe! Archadeck can design a space that is as simple or luxurious as your taste and budget dictates — from compact to expansive — the world is your oyster when it comes to the combinations and amenities available.

Can save $ on utility bills

When you’re cooking outside during the humid Texas summer, your air conditioner won’t have to work overtime to keep your house cool. When you bake, fry, roast, and broil foods in your indoor-kitchen, the temperature in your house rises several degrees, which kicks your A/C into overdrive. When you cook outdoors, you will save on energy consumption.

Low-maintenance

Since many of the outdoor kitchens we design and build for Austin-area homeowners are part of a covered outdoor living space, they incur very little exposure to the elements.

Additionally, many of the materials we use within our custom outdoor living spaces are considered low-maintenance; these include natural stone, pavers, hardwoods and synthetics, all of which are a breeze to maintain. Most of today’s BBQ grills and other outdoor kitchen appliances are made from stainless steel, which makes them not only able to handle the changing seasonal temperatures but also desirable because they are easy to clean. When you have am Austin outdoor kitchen, you have a low-maintenance, high-impact investment you can use and enjoy for many years to come.

Keep cooking odors at bay

Let’s face it, some foods smell delicious while they’re being prepared, while others are less desirable. When you cook foods such as fish or deep-fried items, the aroma can linger for days and is hard to eradicate from within the home. When you prepare those same menu items outside, they dissipate quickly into the great outdoors and do not penetrate your home’s interior.

Save money by eating outside instead of eating out

When you have your own outdoor kitchen and outdoor dining area why would you want to go out to a restaurant to eat? Eating out can drain your bank account, especially if you go out to eat on a regular basis. Every time you opt to dine at home rather out, you keep dollars in your wallet — and who can deny the ambiance of the great outdoors?

Outdoor Kitchens worthy of a second helping!

East End Urban Elegance

This property is located just one mile from the heart of downtown Austin. An area that is alive with renewal, energy and urban vibes.

Each element in the design adds functionality and contemporary styling to the overall project.

Award Winning Outdoor Space in Round Rock

This Round Rock, TX, outdoor living space in Forest Creek received an Archadeck Design Excellence Award. The project includes a unique deck, pergola and outdoor kitchen.

To be recognized for this project by Archadeck Outdoor Living at the national level as an award-winning deck builder means a great deal to the Archadeck of Austin team. The project was very well thought through, and we had a lot of fun building it. The structure itself was not complicated, but we packed in a lot of design considerations and features to make it a wonderful place for entertaining family and guests. We were able to integrate the new structure seamlessly with the existing home, which is just what the homeowners had in mind!

An Austin Outdoor Kitchen BIG on Texas Style

Though this outdoor living project was completed in 2011, it is still one of our fan favorites. This unique structure boasts an outdoor kitchen, covered porch and turns the tables on the traditional way a pergola is used. These structures were integrated into the footprint of the existing home, which had an existing patio that was very long and had very high ceilings. We decided to enclose two ends of the patio because of the high winds that are common in this area.

Archadeck of Austin then built an outdoor kitchen at one end and elevated the rear bar section of the outdoor kitchen.

The outdoor kitchen has a full-size refrigerator, a built-in sink, gas grill, side burner, storage and pull-out drawers. We used standard exterior porcelain tile with a bullnose edge and added a unique backsplash to the kitchen area. We also used a combination of stone and stucco in the structure to break up the amount of stonework on the house itself.

The most unique feature of this project is the innovative use of the pergola which you see hanging from the ceiling…

We used the pergola in a hanging manner to help lower the ceiling in this massively high structure and make it more conducive to feeling like a gathering spot and to aid in hanging the lighting features used to add light to the space.
