As a contractor, the more products and services you are able to offer your clients, the better your chances are for winning larger projects, or upselling on smaller ones. Belgard has a multitude of products, services and tools to help you add outdoor kitchen packages to your repertoire. Here’s how we do it.
Elements: Plan Early for Kitchen Finishing Touch
Whether you’re planning an outdoor kitchen from the ground up, or adding features to one that’s already built, our Belgard Elements™ line of outdoor kitchen essentials offers the perfect way to customize the space with a complete outdoor kitchen package. For the charcoal purist, our versatile Blue Diamond Kamado allows the griller to grill, roast, smoke or bake. For those who prefer the ease of cooking with gas, our built-in grills are a great option. A side burner next to the grill station allows any outdoor chef to warm sauces or cook sides like beans, corn or potatoes, while built-in outdoor pizza ovens are always ready for homemade pizza night plus other baking needs.
Storage areas are important, so plan ahead in the placement of handy outdoor kitchen cabinets and outdoor kitchen drawers. Clients should be reminded that a drawer next to the grill area is a must to keep cooking accessories like tongs, spatulas and pizza cutters within reach. If your client has room, a sink or wet bar and refrigerator is always a good choice. From cooking to storage and everything in between, Belgard Elements has a product to enhance outdoor cooking and living.
Go Modular with Grill Islands and Matching Stone Fireplaces
Belgard can offer you and your clients a variety of amazing prefabricated grill islands and coordinating outdoor fireplaces and fire pits. With our modular kitchen and fire features, we do the work for you! Prebuilt in a factory setting, these handsome outdoor living features coordinate perfectly with Belgard pavers and walls because they’re made with our products. They offer a distinguished look and even include modules for firewood storage. Not only are these products easy to install, but they ultimately end up saving time and costs. Each module ships prefabricated on a palette and includes forklift slots for easy placement, allowing you to build in hours what would otherwise take days. Options include rustic stacked-stone looks and contemporary tailored options.
