Outdoor Kitchens 2022

Long gone are the days when plopping a grill in the yard and purchasing some patio furniture counted as an outdoor kitchen. Today, stylish, functional, feature-rich outdoor kitchens rank highly among the most popular investments for homeowners, especially near Naples homes for sale where you can enjoy that outdoor entertaining space all year long. Planning on adding an outdoor kitchen to your home or upgrading your existing outdoor space? Our real estate agents have the inside scoop on the top features for outdoor kitchens in 2022.

One piece of advice before we dive into the top features: If you're expecting to add or upgrade an outdoor kitchen later this year, be sure to plan ahead. Contractors are in high demand, especially when it comes to adding additions like the ones below.

  • Pizza Ovens
    Think about that one pizza place you've visited in your travels that makes the perfect pie, just the way you like it, every time. Wouldn't it be nice to be able to replicate that in your own backyard? Pizza ovens have become one of the more popular features to add to outdoor kitchens and are capable of cooking far more than just the perfect pizza.

  • Smokers
    If you fancy yourself a barbecue expert – or would like to become one – then a smoker is a must-have for your outdoor kitchen. Think fall-off-the-bone barbecue ribs, perfectly smoked brisket, and countless other barbecue favorites. Smoking does take more time than grilling, but the results are more than worth the wait.

  • Pellet Grills
    When you don't quite have room to fit a smoker, or you'd like a quick, convenient option for grilling with wood, pellet grills are an excellent option. Pellet grills make it easy to get that delicious, smoky flavor that you can enjoy with a larger smoker but only take up as much space as a smaller, traditional grill.

  • Smart Grills
    Smart home tech has been a trendy choice for years in all areas of high-end homes, and outdoor kitchens are certainly no exception. Smart, WiFi-enabled grills take the guesswork out of grilling and make it easier to get consistent, flavorful results every time you fire up the grill. With a smart grill, you will know exactly the temperature you're cooking at, be able to control your grill with a mobile app, and even access step-by-step recipes tailored to your grill from your favorite mobile device while you cook.

  • Pass-Through Bars/Counters
    If you're planning an outdoor kitchen in a smaller space or would simply like to add more functionality to a larger outdoor kitchen, pass-through bars and counters are ideal for making the most of your space. Use your pass-through counter to create more space for preparing food or dining, then fold it up out of the way to open up more room when you don't need the extra counter space.

  • Hidden Cabinets and Appliances
    Aesthetics matter for outdoor kitchens, too, which for many homeowners means making your outdoor kitchen look as sleek and modern as possible. With hidden hinges for your outdoor cabinets and appliances, you can achieve that sleek look in outdoor kitchens of any size.

  • Wine Coolers
    When dinner is served, it's nice to have the perfect pairing close at hand. An outdoor wine cooler allows you to keep your wine at just the right temperature all year long so that it's always ready to serve at its absolute best.

  • Fire Pits
    While you won't be using it for cooking, a fire pit can be just the thing for adding atmosphere and creating a natural gathering place for guests in your outdoor kitchen. Gas fire pits are especially popular because they're cleaner, safer, and allow for more design options.
