Outdoor Kitchen Trends to Look for in 2018

The kitchen is the heart of the home. But what about bringing that comforting feeling outdoors? Whenever most people host a barbecue, they’ll just crank up the backyard grill and call it a day. What if they could transform that space into an incredible outdoor kitchen? At First Coast Supply, we have everything you need to make that vision a reality. With the new year upon us, we know these trends will make your outdoor kitchen an amazing space the whole family can enjoy.

Winter never lasts too long in Jacksonville and before you know it, it’ll be time to enjoy the beautiful weather we know and love. This is the perfect time to get your outdoor kitchen updated to be the most convenient, functional space it can be before you start hosting delicious dinner parties.

According to DIY Network, “More Americans than ever are taking advantage of backyard outdoor living, bringing their culinary skills with them.” People love the idea of being outside to enjoy the beautiful Florida sunshine and what better way to do that than by sharing a meal?

Seat Walls

Incorporating seating in the design for your outdoor kitchen is essential. You don’t want anyone feeling left out from enjoying their time outside just because you don’t have any extra seats. Instead, think about building seat walls. They used to be mainly thought of as functional choice for outdoor living rooms, but they’re perfect for large gatherings in any outdoor space. They also can match perfectly with your design while helping define the space. If they’re closer to a fire pit, it’s even better! Use your judgement to add some pillows for extra comfort. The ambiance these seats create will definitely place your outdoor kitchen above the rest.

Outdoor Pizza Oven

Who doesn’t love a hot pizza straight out of the home kitchen? You can be the hero of any party when you serve up pizza baked in your outdoor pizza oven. When it comes to the design, you have so many choices. Whether it’s a traditional brick oven or stainless steel, your home really would be the go-to place for a wonderful homemade pizza pie. But, if pizza really isn’t your thing, this incredible oven can bake anything you’d want. They’re not limited to just one menu item!

Stainless Steel Cabinets

Keep a clean, functional look while also preventing weather damage with stainless steel cabinets. According to Belgard.com, these cabinets are perfect for outdoor cooking because they’re resistant to rotting while also keeping insects away from food you’re storing.

With these cabinets, you have so many choices for mixing-and-matching with your design just like you would with an indoor kitchen. Don’t worry about your new appliances tarnishing, as stainless steel cleaners do a great job of keeping your cabinets looking brand new for years.

When it comes to creating that perfect outdoor space, this can be your best year yet. By updating your outdoor kitchen to use any of these ideas, you’ll be getting the most out of what your kitchen can offer.
