Whether you are seeking to add a firepit to your backyard, upgrade your patio, or transform your backyard by adding an outdoor kitchen, the experts at Bianchi Brickyard are here to bring your vision to life.

We’ve compiled a list of pros and cons of adding an outdoor kitchen to your backyard:

Pro: Entertainment

The experts at Bianchi Brickyard specialize in transforming backyards into a space where people want to spend time with friends and loved ones. An outdoor kitchen is a perfect place to entertain guests. However, the grill doesn’t have to be the star of the show. In addition to grills, we offer customizable fire pits and fireplaces to bring warmth and comfort to your property. You may also want to consider one of our outdoor ovens–perfect for making pizzas and entertaining guests for hours. With wood and gas-powered options, an outdoor oven from Bianchi Brickyard is a great addition to your outdoor kitchen. 

Con: Inclement Weather

If you have lived in southeastern North Carolina for any period of time, you know that weather can change in a matter of 5 minutes. Inclement weather such as scattered thunderstorms or strong coastal winds can cause you to lose access to the outdoor kitchen temporarily. This is something to keep in mind when you consider adding an outdoor kitchen to your backyard. If your area is prone to flooding, you can consider adding one of our drainage systems. We can’t stop inclement weather, but there are ways to combat the impacts. 

Pro: Lower Energy Bills

Adding an outdoor kitchen to your property is an investment, however, it is often associated with lower energy bills since you will be entertaining your guests outside. During the summer, especially, you can enjoy lower electricity bills as your guests will be spending time outside rather than inside your home. Furthermore, if you add a grill or oven to your outdoor kitchen, you can save a tremendous amount on energy bills. 

Con: Space 

Outdoor kitchens require a certain amount of space to be built and enjoyed for years to come. Smaller properties may be unable to accommodate a full outdoor kitchen. However, there are other options for these property owners, such as stepping stones, decorative gravel, and compact outdoor ovens. No matter how big or small your property is, the experts at Bianchi Brickyard can help you design the perfect outdoor living space. 


Pro: Increased Time Outdoors

Do you want to spend more time outdoors? Is your family cooped up in the house all year long? Adding an outdoor kitchen to your backyard is the perfect way to increase you and your family’s time outdoors. An outdoor kitchen creates an incredible atmosphere for socializing and relaxing after a long day. Stay outdoors longer and take advantage of the fresh air by adding an outdoor kitchen to your property, and you will reap the benefits for years to come.
