Why You Need an Outdoor Kitchen…

Blarney Backyard Basics understands that the summer season and outdoor living in Northern Michigan is something each and every Michigan native looks forward too each year. Time to extend your outdoor season with an outdoor kitchen and living area!

They say the Kitchen is the heart of the home, why not extend that into and outdoor living space.

Add 2 Months to your Summer...

Who wouldn’t want to add some additional outdoor living season to their Michigan season?  We can help.  With an outdoor kitchen with the right configuration, layout, heating options, etc., you can easily extend your outdoor season by 2 months! 

Add Value to your Home...

Most Real Estate Agents and investors will back us up on this one.  Adding an outdoor kitchen can make you money when you go to sell your home in the future.  Why not invest back into your property and enjoy your investment at the same time?

Great for Entertaining...

Everyone wants that house that “everyone wants to visit.”  An outdoor kitchen and entertainment area can make your house that home.  Outdoor living extends the season and is perfect for the family that loves to host parties and events. 

Keep Smells Outside...

Some foods smell delicious while they’re cooking, while others are less desirable. When you cook especially odiferous foods such as fish or deep-fried items, those aromas can linger for days. When you prepare the same menu items outside, your house stays fresh smelling.

Saves on Utility Bills...

When you’re grilling outside during the 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 inside-kitchen, the temperature in your house elevates several degrees, which kicks the AC into overdrive.

It's Just Cool... That's That!

If you are looking to take the plunge and invest in an outdoor living/kitchen space, and have made it to this final point, just stop. Added value to your home, added family time outdoors during the best time of year and a great entertaiing space is all the reason you need to invest in your kitchen… just because it’s cool! 



The mission of Blarney Backyard Basics is to help you create your perfect backyard oasis. From grills and smokers to heaters and fire tables, we are committed to helping you find everything that you need to turn your backyard into the perfect outdoor activity center.
