5 Reasons to Choose an Archadeck of Columbus Outdoor Kitchen

Great for entertaining

One benefit of having a Columbus outdoor kitchen is that they are a perfect space for outdoor entertaining. Just like the old saying the kitchen is the heart of the home goes, the same can be said of outdoor kitchens. When food is prepared outdoors, guests can gather around and socialize as dinner is being prepared. It might get crowded in an indoor kitchen when everyone hangs out with the cook, but in an outdoor environment, plus there’s more space to mingle.

Expands your outdoor living space


If you are planning a covered patio or porch addition an outdoor kitchen is the perfect ingredient to complete your outdoor living recipe! Archadeck of Columbus can design a space that is as simple or luxurious as your taste and budget dictate — from compact to expansive — the world is your oyster when it comes to the combinations and amenities available.

Can save $ on utility bills

Outdoor kitchen and seating area

When you’re cooking outside instead of inside, during the hot and humid 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 indoor-kitchen, the temperature in your house rises several degrees, which kicks your A/C into overdrive. When you cook outdoors, you will save on overall energy consumption.

Low-maintenance outdoor living

Since many of the outdoor kitchens we design and build for Columbus-area homeowners are part of a covered outdoor living space, they incur very little exposure to the elements.

Additionally, many of the materials we use within our custom outdoor living spaces are considered low-maintenance; these include pavers, stone, and synthetics, all of which are a breeze to maintain. Most of today’s BBQ grills and other outdoor kitchen appliances are made from stainless steel, which makes them not only able to handle the changing seasonal temperatures but also desirable because they are easy to clean. When you have a Columbus outdoor kitchen, you have a low-maintenance, high-impact investment you can use and enjoy for many years to come.

Keep cooking odors at bay

Outdoor kitchen

Let’s face it, some foods smell delicious while they’re being prepared, while others are less desirable. When you cook foods such as fish or deep-fried items, the aroma can linger for days and is hard to eradicate from within the home. When you prepare those same menu items outside, they dissipate quickly into the great outdoors and do not penetrate your home’s interior.

Save money by eating outside instead of eating out

Outdoor kitchen

When you have your own outdoor kitchen and outdoor dining area why would you want to go out to a restaurant to eat? Eating out can drain your bank account, especially if you go out to eat on a regular basis. Every time you opt to dine at home rather out, you keep dollars in your wallet — and who can deny the ambiance of the great outdoors?
