Nothing’s better during a blistering hot Jacksonville summer than winding down in the backyard with a home-cooked meal. Sure, you could schlep in and out of the house with each dish and dirty your beautiful indoor kitchen. Or you can improve the look of your house and ease your cooking process by building a fully equipped outdoor kitchen. Plenty of trends have come and gone in the summer kitchen design space. At First Coast Supply, we’re all about unique architecture that stays in style for years.
Fully Functional Outdoor Kitchens are a Must Moving Forward
Gone are the days of outdoor kitchen areas with only one or two features. Fast forward to design forecasts for 2020 and you’ll see outdoor kitchens that resemble the functionality of your home’s primary kitchen.
Features like overhead fans, gas stovetops and wine fridges are all staples in high-end summer kitchens. Standard appliances used to be just a grill and a sink, but homeowners have started to gravitate toward a more efficient set-up. Here are some great ideas for features to trigger your imagination:
- Weatherproof cabinets that extend the design of the interior of your home
- Strategic uplighting and backlighting to set the tone for your space
- Ample storage for kitchen tools and outdoor dinnerware
- A surround sound music system to make the space feel more intimate and fun
Features that Focus on Your Family’s Interests
Does dad love ice cold beer and the kiddos crave pizza on the weekends? When you begin to design your kitchen, elements like a kegerator and a brick pizza oven might fit in perfectly with your family.
We’re all too familiar with the limited backyard space of homes all around Jacksonville and the beaches. Because of this, it’s important to pack your outdoor kitchen with the features that make the most sense for your family. Work with the First Coast Supply experts to choose a layout and appliances that work best in your outdoor space.
Stay Comfortable When You Cook Outdoors
Features that homeowners often neglect include a fan (c’mon, it’s a million degrees outside!), ample seating and a functional sink. You know your cooking style.
If you need space for chopping and a sink with a strong disposal, plan accordingly during the design process. Cooking outdoors should bring the same — if not more — joy than when you cook in your regular kitchen.
