Stone Living: Inside and Outside
It’s finally summer! Homeowners are starting to enjoy their homes with their families on their outdoor living spaces. Not only are these spaces great for relaxing but they also make great entertaining spaces.
One of the most popular integrated spaces homeowners are creating today are: Outdoor Kitchens! Not only do these spaces allow you to create the perfect summer entertainment spot but it also provides the convenience of performing cooking, serving, and other various tasks outside with their family and friends.
The cost of creating these spaces can vary by the amenities that are included as well as the materials and labor used to create this space. For smaller homes that don’t need a lot of entertainment space, the total cost of creating these spaces can range between $2,000 to $10,000. Larger homes that may need bigger entertainment space (or are requested by the homeowner) can have a total premium cost of $50,000-$100,000. These costs are strictly estimates so if you are thinking about constructing your own entertainment space, remember to select the amenities that best fit your lifestyle and use the right materials to fit your aesthetic taste. Remember to contact a professional deck or hardscape contractor for a more accurate quote and building recommendations.
When creating an entertainment space like this, you definitely want it to last a long time and to look great. Choosing the right materials to use in this type of project is very important when it comes to the longevity of your outdoor investment. As mentioned before, most homeowners have been using stone materials, among other options to create these spaces. The benefits of using stone include: virtually no maintenance, longer life-span, and increased home value. Newly developed technology allows stone to be used for both ground application and on elevated decks.
Your home is where you spend the most time with your family. Providing it with a space that you, your family, and friends can relax and entertain on is what it deserves. When will you start creating your stone kitchen?!
