FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Woodbury, NJ – March 21, 2017 – As the frost ends, homeowners are beginning to break ground on new patios and outdoor kitchens. Once thought to be as expensive as putting on an entire home addition, patio design and installation has become more affordable. The one new trend that makes a patio or an outdoor kitchen accessible to all is a kitchen kit.
A kitchen kit is a matching collection of outdoor kitchen structures that can be added individually. Kitchen kits allow homeowners to start with a basic outdoor area and slowly expand to a full chef’s paradise that’s great for entertaining family and friends.
Starting with a prep center cabinet or an island cabinet with a sink, a homeowner can later add a 4 or 5 burner oven or a refrigerator cabinet alongside the original cabinet. The kits are packaged to include everything needed to build each component including simple to follow instructions. With kitchen kits, all the measurement is done, making installation simple. Kit parts don’t require cuts. “If [homeowners] or their contractor went out and tried to buy block to create this, they would almost definitely have to cut pieces to fit around doors, sinks, for corners etc.,” said Marianne Anzaldo, Marketing Director for EP Henry, a leading manufacturer of natural-looking patio pavers and provider of kitchen kits. “This is all done in advance and packaged for them.”
The build-by-module plan is growing popular among homeowners. Spreading the cost over several months or years is a definite plus, but what a kitchen kit is truly beneficial for is allowing homeowners to get familiar with their use of their patio space. Many savvy homeowners know there’s sometimes a disconnect between the outdoor patio plans and the reality. Although uninstalling a sturdy, cement-based cabinet would be a major project, it would be a lot easier than repositioning an entire outdoor kitchen. Simply modifying the original design around the first piece is an option, too. Homeowners with growing families like the idea of living with one piece before they commit to a whole patio and kitchen.

Don’t give up on your dream outdoor kitchen. A kitchen kit may be just the thing you need to get started.
