Outdoor Kitchen Design and Appliance Cost: What You Must Know

Published

on

Your outdoor kitchen should look smart, upgraded with contemporary design and the latest appliances including heavy-duty grills and burners. Then, you need to look into the cost too. The cost would depend a lot on the materials, size, and appliances set up in your backyard. If you’re looking for a basic outdoor kitchen design with a grill, patio, and just a countertop, it would cost you a few thousand dollars. Then, a sumptuous design with top-notch kitchen appliances would cost you more.

According to an article published on https://www.forbes.com, nowadays, homeowners are looking for a grill with a fully-functioning outdoor cooking space replete with a refrigerator, sink, faucet, ice machine, dishwasher, and cabinets.

Cost of appliances

The most essential appliance in your outdoor kitchen is the grill. You will find these products in a range of prices. Some of the basic ones will cost you around $800 and a few top-of-the-line grills would cost around $10,000. Therefore, you need to decide first how much money you can shell out on the grill as well as other kitchen features that you prefer.

It’s not a smart thing to spend most of your money on the grill because a luxury item with average counters will look odd. Your goal is to decorate your outdoor kitchen space in the best possible way without exceeding your budget.

The average cost of popular items including grill, refrigerator, and stainless sink are $200-$4,000, $400-$1,000, and $100 respectively. If you have an expensive grill, then ensure that you shop for heavyduty grill covers to keep it protected from dust, debris, leaves, twigs, insects in your outdoor space when not in use.

General costs

The majority of outdoor kitchen design costs are exclusive of paving a well as overhead construction. Let us look at the general costs:

Appliance installation: $2,000-$5,000

General construction: $5,000-$12,000

Outdoor kitchen with masonry or brick: $400-$600 for every linear foot

Outdoor kitchen with a preassembled framework: $300-$500 for every linear foot

Keeping costs reasonable

If you want to keep the cost within your budget, you can give up the sink, side burner, cabinets, and refrigerator. You can set up your outdoor kitchen close to your indoor instead so that you can move in and out easily. You can use the kitchen window to pass things outside like bottles of water, plates, etc. These little things matter when designing your outdoor cooking space.

Again, running the utilities for your outdoor cooking area will cost you. Yes, it’s expensive and therefore, you should try to set up your outdoor kitchen close to a point where electricity and water are easily accessible.

Framework expenses

When you choose prefabricated kitchen frames, the average cost is approx $200 for every linear foot for the frame. It will hold all your kitchen items, appliances. Make sure that the same is finished on site. The costs of brick veneer, manufactured stone, stucco, and granite countertop are $15-$25, $20, $5, and $60-$70 for every sq. ft. respectively. 

Conclusion

Now that you have an idea of your outdoor kitchen design and appliance costs, you can make an informed decision.

Daniel Habif Gives Us Hope Amid Coronavirus Pandemic

Published

on

There are few individuals as creative, loving, and genuine as Daniel Habif.

Habif, the Mexican entrepreneur, content creator and motivational speaker who has been featured in many important events such as the Live Aid for Venezuela in February 2019, has spoken at major forums such as TEDx, Mexico’s Senate of the Republic and the recent author of his latest book, INQUEBRANTABLES, shows us that amid despair, there is always hope.

In his latest YouTube video, “RETURNING HOME,” Habif shares his thoughts on the current Covid19 pandemic in an honest, candid, and unequivocally, Daniel Habif way, in which only he can express.

“I don’t believe in any kind of boundaries, which is why I am doing this video in English, Italian, French and other languages. I don’t speak very well, but I will try, I always try. By not expressing myself in my native language makes it a beautiful challenge that allows me to remember: ‘That in this life it is more important to be willing than to be prepared.’” Habif says at the beginning of the video.

In the video, which in less than 24 hours received over 60,000 views, Daniel starts by pointing out that because of Coronavirus there is at the moment a lot of panic because a lot of people are going to be isolated, and that all of this is okay. He also claims that the virus has shown us we are not as strong as we thought.

Because people or cars are not flooding the streets as they normally are, Daniel points out the many things that we can notice now: ‘the birds chirping,’ ‘the blue and beautiful sky and not the smoke from the pollution.’

Daniel continues highlighting the good things happening around us. We can now hear the sound of cutlery from our neighbors as families gather to eat together and see parents go back to telling stories to their little children. There are also those who have to stay alone, but now get the chance to talk to themselves, ‘take a longer shower, eat breakfast slowly, put on some lotion and feel your hands.’

People sing from their balconies and realize they can live their lives with less than they normally get or think they need. Everyone now also has time to clean their minds and have a ‘space to settle themselves,’ and be able to focus on the little pleasures of life we don’t always notice.

In a little less than 11 minutes, Daniel is able to give us the hope we need today more than ever. With a call to go back to love, to forgiveness, and to reflection. This has been an experience for all of us, and it has undoubtedly shown us that we normally live at an unnecessarily fast speed that can lead us to a ‘spiritual heart attack.’

“We will soon remember that our world is abundant and we will discover that sickness is our empty attitude, and that’s okay. Because if we want, only if we want, soon goodness will regain control of humanity and we will all seek to offer comfort, give food and after all this time of not hugging, we will want nothing more but to love, we are going to rethink our lives we are going to want our life to serve the tired, the anguished and the homeless. We will be forced to forgive because we have realized that we all need each other.” Daniel states in the video.

Daniel closes by asking people to cooperate rather than compete, and to pray for the rebirth and revival of love. He makes the point that this pain cannot be for nothing–that we should learn something from this and come out of it improved.

RETURNING HOME” has been able to move thousands of people from all over the world–drawing comments of amazement, bliss, gratefulness, reflection and unity. Check it out and share it with people who may need to be lifted up today. To watch Daniel Habif’s “RETURNING HOME” video, click here.

Dennis Kenney Proves That If There Is A Will, There Is A Way

Published

on

At this point in his career, Dennis Kenney has styled multiple celebrities for award shows like The Academy Awards, the Grammys, and the Met Gala. He was the head wardrobe stylist for the hit show Trading Places on TLC. Dennis has been featured in GQ as having one of the best street style looks for New York Fashion Week, and has his own boutique and clothing brand. With all of his incredible accolades, it would be hard to believe this would be his career path just a few years prior. 

There was a point in time when Dennis had zero motives of becoming a stylist, and instead had all of his focus on becoming a successful actor. While that did not pan out, his desire to follow his dreams and take risks to put himself in a position to work for himself and become financially free remained the same. After attending Carnegie Mellon and spending a brief stint in film, Kenney discovered his intense passion for fashion and set his mind to leveraging his way into the industry. By being consistent in uploading fashion content to social media, he began to gain a large enough following to the point where brands had no choice but to take notice. 

From there, his experience as a creative director for 260 Sample Sale and a sitdown interview with Christian Siriano sealed his reputation as a stylist through both his personality and his work. One of his more significant experiences was taking a huge risk by dressing a morning TV host in a dress that was considered risque for the occasion, but was received with huge praise. While it certainly was a risk, Dennis gained validation in his choices as a stylist and confirmed his belief that it is more than alright to go against the grain, as this is what helped separate him from the pack. 

While his own decision making and personality has certainly taken him a long way, Dennis has great appreciation for his connections and those that have helped turn his business into a massive success. While it takes a great deal of effort to find the right employees, he knows how important it is to surround himself with the right people. Not only have his employees shot his business to new heights, the connections he has made throughout his journey have been crucial to his success and in landing new opportunities. Because of this, he strongly recommends to never burn a bridge with anyone, as he never knows when he will cross someone again in a major situation or opportunity. 

Dennis Kenney has certainly made the most of every opportunity and has never shied away from the challenge of chasing his dreams, and anyone who has worked with him knows how kind hearted and grounded he has been through it all. In terms of what is next for Dennis, the sky truly is the limit.
