While many Santa Clarita home projects and expansions saw cutbacks during the recession some amenities are coming back and coming back strong. One such household amenity is the outdoor kitchen. An outdoor kitchen is seen as a huge addition to a home, enhancing a family’s lifestyle and adding useful space to a property.
Bonus with installation
Installing an outdoor kitchen at your Santa Clarita home makes cooking outside easier and helps get the family or, at the very least, the cook outdoors enjoying fresh air. An added bonus of installing an outdoor kitchen is its perceived value. An outdoor kitchen recoups much of its cost when selling a home and certainly adds appeal.
Return on Investment – ROI
Just based on the “rare” factor alone, outdoor kitchens seem to get most of their “installed” value back when a local SCV home sells that is equipped with one. Not to mention the years of enjoyment the sellers have gotten back as a result of installation.
Whether you have a small yard or a large estate an outdoor kitchen can be designed to suit your property. This can be as intricate as installing cabinetry, appliances, plumbing and countertops or as simple as a patio space with a grill and perhaps an outdoor bar. The options are endless, and of course the more space you have the more choices you have.
Designer and Contractor all in one…
Get three estimates from those versed in contracting/sub-contracting. You will also want to hire a contractor with a Design background. If you cannot find one of those “rare birds” in your local real estate market, you are going to have to double dip for an architect too.
