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.

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.
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.
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.
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?
