Increase Your Property Value With A Grill Island
Add up to $18,000 in value to your home
Like most home improvements, a custom grill island definitely adds value to your home. According to some home appraisers, outdoor kitchens can increase your property value from $8,000 to $18,000. Of course, this depends on the style and accessories of the island you build. It can be as small or as spectacular as you want it to be and can include refrigerators, drawers, sinks, and counters so friends and family can socialize with you while you grill. Plus, you no longer need to run back and forth from your indoor kitchen to your barbecue in the backyard because with a custom outdoor kitchen everything is at your fingertips - space to grill, places to store food and a sink to clean everything up in - all in one convenient location.
A great entertaining experience - and investment
Normally, any investment that you put into your home will come back to you when you sell it. Since grill islands tend to weigh a few hundred pounds, they are almost always sold as an amenity of the property. And an added bonus to having an outdoor kitchen is that you don't heat up the house on a hot summer day so your air conditioning bills are reduced.
