Are Outdoor Kitchens Worth It?

When deciding on an outdoor addition, kitchens are a top choice for many homeowners because they increase outdoor living space, provide functionality and are aesthetically pleasing.

If you’re debating if it’s the right purchase for you, or just want to know more about your options, read on to see if adding an outdoor kitchen is the investment for you!


The first question that often comes to mind when considering an addition of this scale is usually: “How much will this cost me?” While the price varies based on the features, additions and size you want, Home Advisor estimates that the average homeowner will pay at least a few thousand dollars for their outdoor kitchen.

At Ocala Pavers, we have financing options for all of your outdoor space projects. We’ll help you compare pre-qualified rates in less than 2 minutes and offer helpful tips to match you to the right financing plan!

Return on Investment

Leading industry experts say that an outdoor kitchen can significantly increase the return on investment of your home because it adds a great deal of value.

Especially when considered as an alternative to remodeling your kitchen, adding an outdoor kitchen is significantly more cost effective. Not only does it add another space for cooking and enjoying meals, it can double your space by adding an outdoor living area.

Installing an outdoor kitchen is worth the investment long-term, whether you’re using it as a focal gathering point for guests or a point of sale for future buyers.


We’ve already touched on the fact that an outdoor kitchen is a good financial investment for your home, but there are other benefits such as:

  • Spending more time outdoors (which has proven to be excellent for your mental and physical health)
