How Much Does an Outdoor Kitchen Cost?

Sometimes we get lucky in the Elburn area, and that warm weather lingers from the summer into the fall. It’s the kind of weather that makes you want to enjoy every last waking minute outdoors that you can.
With that lingering warmth, it may be time to do some outdoor cooking. Your family and friends will likely be spending some time outdoors enjoying the weather, so the ability to do more cooking out there can help to keep you engaged. An outdoor kitchen may also be exactly what you need to help prepare your home for a stay-cation.
A grill is nice, but a more complete outdoor kitchen ensures flexibility in your meal planning, while being able to continue enjoying the outdoors. It is nice to have the same amenities and cooking flexibility outdoors as in.
The price on an outdoor kitchen can vary greatly depending on what you want to include in the project. The basic grill and countertop setup can start in the $3,000 range and go up from there. Appliances, counter space, and materials used can all have an impact on the project.
So as you are making decisions regarding an outdoor kitchen consider how much countertop space you would like. With more countertop space, you would not have to run inside for mealtime prep.
The same thing is true with a larger outdoor grill. There would be more space to prepare multiple dishes at once. This can come in extremely handy if you have a large family, or are entertaining large numbers of people. It can also keep you from cooking part of the meal outdoors and part of the meal indoors – saving you additional headache.
Appearance, and the materials you choose to use are important as well. An outdoor kitchen should go well with the surrounding patio area. It should also be durable and easy to clean up.
