Outdoor Kitchens and Fireplaces in Surrey

Categories: Backyard Landscaping, Landscape Design | July 17, 2017

There is no better space for entertaining your family and friends than your backyard. If you are looking for backyard landscaping and renovation ideas that will impress your guests, you should consider having an outdoor kitchen or an outdoor fireplace installed. At Vandenberg’s Landscape Design, we understand the many benefits of outdoor kitchens and fireplaces in Surrey, and we would love to help you create the perfect backyard landscaping for your yard.

The Benefits of an Outdoor Kitchen in Surrey

Outdoor cooking is becoming increasingly popular in the Surrey area as homeowners are discovering the joys and benefits of having an outdoor kitchen space. Here are some of the many benefits of including an outdoor kitchen in your backyard landscaping:

  • Entertaining – one of the best benefits of having an outdoor kitchen is that it is perfect for entertaining your guests. While indoor kitchens tend to get crowded, there is plenty of space outside for your guests to move around comfortably.
  • Adds value – due to the popularity of having an outdoor kitchen, you can earn a high rate of return on your financial investment. Adding an outdoor kitchen to your space also gives you an investment that you can use and enjoy for years to come.
  • Save money on utility bills – when you cook food inside your home, the temperature in your house elevates several degrees, which forces your AC to work harder to keep your house cooler.
  • Keeps smells outside – when you cook certain foods, such as fish or deep-fried items, inside, the smell can linger for days; however, when you prepare the same foods outside, your house stays smelling fresh.
  • Expands your living space – if you have a covered patio, you are all set to install appliances and have the outdoor kitchen of your dreams.

The Benefits of an Outdoor Fireplace in Surrey

Adding an outdoor fireplace into your backyard landscaping can bring a wow factor that will impress any guest. Just like outdoor kitchens, outdoor fireplaces are becoming a huge trend in the Surrey area. No matter what type of fireplace you prefer, having one installed in your backyard can give you some unexpected benefits, such as:

  • Keeps the bugs away – while bug repellent and citronella candles can keep the bugs at bay, a fire can be a great way to enjoy your backyard without swatting at pests all night.
  • Extends your outdoor season – by combing the comfort and warmth of an outdoor fireplace, you can be outside more months of the year.
  • Easy to install – when you add an outdoor fireplace to your backyard landscaping, you do not have to worry about tearing down existing walls, getting the carpet dirty, or ceiling heights. You can easily turn an empty space into the focal point of your home.
  • Adds value – just like outdoor kitchens, outdoor fireplaces can add value to your home, and are a great investment that you can enjoy for years to come.
