5 Reasons You Need a Covered Outdoor Kitchen

One of the hottest trends in outdoor design for the last couple of years has been the addition of elaborate, fully-functional outdoor kitchens. More than just the old kettle grill on the patio, these fully-functional outdoor kitchens feature wood-fired pizza ovens, advanced infrared grills, sinks with hot and cold running water, wine coolers, elaborate countertops, and much more. If you are considering adding an outdoor kitchen to your home, there is one addition to the design that can help elevate your space from all the rest. The addition of an elegant and modern pergola will ensure your new outdoor kitchen is more than just an occasional cookout venue, and instead becomes an at-home fine dining destination.

So, let's dive into the benefits of adding a pergola covered outdoor kitchen to your home. 

Keep Cool and Party On

Whether you enjoy cooking for your friends, or your new outdoor kitchen is going to be a place for a visiting chef to dazzle your guests, it’s important that everyone is able to relax and enjoy the culinary experiences coming from your covered outdoor kitchen. That means choosing a flexible patio cover that can create shade during the height of the day, but also open to allow the refreshing evening sun to bathe your Instagram-worthy culinary creations. With a motorized adjustable louvered roof pergola, you can control the amount of sun and shade with the push of a button.

Never Get Rained Out

Here in South Florida, there are two types of outdoor gatherings, those which come with a pre-planned rain date, and those that never need to cancel for weather. Choosing our adjustable louvered roof pergola to protect your covered outdoor kitchen means you’ll never get rained out. Our manufacturing partner, Azenco, crafts the most rain-resistant louvered roofs on the market in Miami, Florida. The unique gapless dual-walled louvers built into its R-Blade Pergola are designed to capture the rain when closed, and drain it through a hidden integrated gutter system. This unique design not only keeps your outdoor kitchen and your guests dry during routine rain showers, but diverts the runoff away from the kitchen space below to keep the patio floor dry.

Ramp Up the Luxury 

A unique feature of the Azenco R-Blade pergola is its assembly hardware that is thoughtfully hidden. This allows us to create pergolas with clean exterior lines that can seamlessly integrate your new covered outdoor kitchen space with your home’s existing style, making it look like it was part of the original architect’s vision. Another luxe capability of our pergolas is their fully-automated louver controls. By embedding a smart sensor into the motorized louver controls, the onboard sensors will monitor for the first drop of rain, and automatically close the louvered roof to ensure your party continues uninterrupted. The look on your guests faces as the pergola magically closes the louvered roof is always a great topic of discussion.

Boost Resale Value

Many real estate experts agree, adding an outdoor kitchen to your home can offer an average 100% to 200% return on your investment, should you choose to sell your home. That said, in haute neighborhoods like Boca Raton or Delray Beach, plenty of homeowners are investing in home improvements that are targeted to the high-end clientele purchasing homes on the beach. Elevating your covered outdoor kitchen with a high-tech, all-weather pergola roof option will make sure your home stands out in a crowded market, even among other homes with deluxe outdoor kitchens.

A Modern Canvas for Customizable Features 

Our patio covers are fabricated from powder-coated high-quality aluminum, which makes them able to stand up to the harsh weather here in Florida, but also means they can be customized with numerous options. Our pergolas can easily accommodate embedded lighting, such as dimmable LED spot lights or decorative up-lighting that illuminates the architectural features of the pergola roof. Many customers here in South Florida, elect to include automated insect and privacy screens into the pergola. The combination of the pergola’s gapless louvered roof, and these integrated insect screens means you can enjoy the Sunshine State’s finest sunsets without unwelcomed bugs spoiling the fun.


Covered outdoor kitchens have been a hot trend for South Florida homes, and that trend is still sizzling in 2022. If you would like to explore the possibilities for a fully-functional outdoor kitchen for your home or other pergola ideas, please contact us and we can guide you through the design options that will make the most of your outdoor entertainment space.
