You love the great outdoors, great company, and great food. In fact, when the seasons change, you daydream about fixing a seasonal meal for your friends and family out behind your house. You envision having grilled steak and vegetables in the spring, BBQ ribs and s’mores in the summer, homemade pizza and fruit skewers in the fall, and chili and grilled apple crisp in the winter. Technically, you could make these dishes on your grill. But you know that the food would be tastier and the parties would be livelier if you had an outdoor kitchen.
An outdoor kitchen would be perfect for you. But one issue or another has prevented you from fulfilling your outdoor kitchen dreams. You might not know if you have enough room, what products and materials you should use, or even where to start.
But BenchMark Home Services does. So, we’re here to solve all your backyard woes and supply you with the ideal outdoor kitchen. With our outdoor kitchen installations in Solon, Ohio, we can give you the best setup for accomplishing all of your culinary goals with a super convenient open-air cooking area.
You’ll be breathing the fresh air, smelling the grilled spread, and laughing with your friends before you know it when you receive an outdoor kitchen from BenchMark.
The Benefits of a BenchMark Outdoor Kitchen Installation
At BenchMark Home Services, our concern for our clients motivates everything we do. Therefore, we always follow the highest industry standards to a T, and we ensure that every part of our projects is up to code. For these reasons, an outdoor kitchen installation in Twinsburg from BenchMark Home Services is guaranteed to be a safe and healthy place to prepare food and hang out.
But our outdoor kitchens offer other benefits as well. For one, they expand the usable space of your home. With an outdoor kitchen, you can double the size of your indoor kitchen, dining room, and living room just by bringing their defining features outside. What’s more, an outdoor kitchen builds on your indoor kitchen’s functionality by adding a grill, a griddle, side burners, a pizza oven, a smoker, a warming drawer, an outdoor refrigerator, a wine cooler, and more.
Additionally, cooking your food with charcoal, gas, or propane and eating it by natural light also increases the efficiency of your home and lowers your energy bills. Because an outdoor kitchen lets you switch up your dining experience, you can also save money by eating out less and eating outdoors more.
Finally, an outdoor kitchen can make your home feel even more like heaven on earth by including plush seating, a fireplace or firepit, a TV, a stereo system, a pergola or pavilion, and other luxuries for outdoor living. An outdoor kitchen allows you to take all the comforts of home with you when you step out your back door.
The Promise of a BenchMark Outdoor Kitchen Installation
With our decades of experience and hardworking team of highly-trained home improvement experts, BenchMark Home Services can deliver the ultimate outdoor kitchen for you. We exist to please our clients, so we’re ready to go above and beyond your expectations. You just have to tell us what you want from your outdoor kitchen.
Outdoor Kitchen Planning
Before you begin designing your outdoor kitchen, you should establish your entertaining style, the essential kitchen elements, and your budget. Making these decisions is easier once you factor in how you’d like to use your outdoor kitchen. For instance, will you use it to feed your family or satisfy a crowd? Do you plan to cook outdoors and eat indoors or both cook and eat outdoors? Where would you prefer to do your food prep? How often do you estimate you’ll use your outdoor kitchen?
Then, you can conceptualize the design by assessing the amount and the condition of the space you have and how the layout and size of your kitchen can fit this space. For example, if you have pool, perhaps you want to position a straight-line kitchen on one side of the water and equip it with an outdoor refrigerator that holds plenty drinks. Or, if you have a walk-out basement, you may prefer to create a cozy cooking area with a U-shaped kitchen under a pavilion. In case you have a large deck, you could outfit it with an L-shaped kitchen with an eating bar.
The square footage of the area is important to remember, but you must also evaluate the amount of sun exposure, accessibility of your back door, levelness of the ground, drainage options, amount of privacy, and more.
Outdoor Kitchen Details
As you would expect, you’ll also need to plan out all the other details of your outdoor kitchen, such as the appliances and the finishes. Do you want a kamado grill with granite countertops? Or perhaps a professional gas grill with a vent hood and a natural stone backsplash? How about a linear BBQ island with brick finish and a big-screen TV?

Some of the best food you can make for watching the game requires the grill.

With a big screen and big comfy chairs (or bar stools), you and your friends can chow down on the most appropriate home-gating foods while you cheer on your team. If you augment your viewing with a sweet sound system, you can also host outdoor dance parties during the offseason. And when you trust BenchMark Home Services with your outdoor kitchen installation in Chagrin Falls, you can be sure that your TV and sound system are secure and operational.
