Outdoor Kitchens Heating Up: Mr. Appliance Gives Expert Insight on this Summer Trend
Mr. Appliance offers expert insight on the outdoor kitchen trend.
Waco, TX (PRWEB) July 31, 2013 - Outdoor kitchens are increasingly becoming a hot commodity and are experiencing a high influx of consumer demand due to their outdoor entertainment appeal and ability to increase home valuation.
A well-built outdoor kitchen stocked with quality materials and appliances will offer a lifetime of enjoyment, and returns on investment are high. Traditionally, outdoor kitchens are furnished with stainless steel outdoor appliances to resist the weather and condition elements.
“We have seen a huge rise in demand for outdoor kitchens,” stated Vice President of Mr. Appliance®, Mary Kay Liston. “They not only offer the convenience and entertainment factors, but also the all-important ‘wow’ factor when it comes time to put your home on the market.”
Outdoor cooking has long been a summer favorite and for good reason. “Bringing the heat outdoors and keeping the home cooler is much easier on your appliances as well as your wallet,” said Liston. Avoiding cooking meals indoors allows home air conditioners to work more efficiently, reducing the cost of monthly energy bills. Outdoor kitchens also provide the option of solar powered appliances to further reduce energy costs.
The outdoor kitchen often includes a lounge area, which “allows homeowners to easily and significantly extend their living area, a benefit many homeowners seek,” Liston shared. The area is used as a space to relax with family, make memories and host social gatherings. “My favorite part is that our job helps bring families together in a space Mr. Appliance helped to create.”
Appliances normally associated with outdoor kitchens include refrigerators, barbeque grills, ice makers, side burners and even wine coolers. Today, appliances are making strides in the newest technologies available. Because appliances are an important part of homeowner’s lives, Mr. Appliance continues to make strides in industry advancements, remaining a leader in innovation and expertise.
