Rooftops: Kitchens with a View

An upscale rooftop outdoor kitchen can be used to showcase opulent features of the area around your property such as a lake, city skyline, or ocean view. Developers are featuring this added luxurious space in many places across the country, and members of the country’s upper socio-economic class are noticing. In fact, rooftop outdoor kitchens are especially popular in high-density areas, such as along the east coast, where some of the counties’ wealthiest zip codes are located.


Outdoor Kitchens Boost ROI

According to inman.com -- a nationwide real estate news and trends site -- the average return on investment for an outdoor kitchen space is 100-200%. Besides the premium ROI, outdoor kitchens with electric outdoor grills provide an excellent selling point to spice up interior units that may be less desirable on their own. An electric outdoor grill creates an exclusive gathering space for owners to entertain and network in a comfortable environment.


Clients are also willing to purchase a smaller indoor living space in order to have access to a high-end furnished exterior space that an outdoor kitchen or a rooftop deck provides.

Why Contractors Love Electric Grills


Having an electric grill on your rooftop kitchen takes out much of the complicated work involved in installing a traditional, fossil-fuel grill.
