What You Need To Know Before Installing An Outdoor Kitchen

We can’t think of a better time to begin the outdoor kitchen installation process than now. Fall and winter offer lower temperatures to streamline the design and install. If you just began the vision process for your outdoor kitchen, the best decision you can make is to partner with one of Jacksonville’s experts. As summer kitchens continue to grow in popularity, it’s more important than ever to do your due diligence to partner with the right pros to reap the true benefits.

An outdoor kitchen creates new social opportunities for your family and adds significant square footage to your living space. Before you jump in head-first, there are a few important items to consider.

Prioritize a Purpose for Your Home Addition

What are you going to cook up in your new space? Whether it’s great conversation or wood-fired pizza, it’s important to design the space with this purpose in mind. Do you need enough space to seat large parties? How about a kegerator or a wine cooler? We’re here to help you choose the best design for your budget and taste.

Summer kitchens are essentially an extension of your main kitchen and dining area. These areas are often put to use during busy holidays and dinner parties for additional cooking space. If you’ve always loved the idea of a certain appliance but it didn’t make the cut in your main kitchen, now is the perfect time to give your vision a home.

Get Real About Space Restrictions

The size of your yard and patio space plays a huge role in the design of your outdoor kitchen. An oversized outdoor kitchen can create countless functional problems, while a kitchen that’s too small will look out of place and be difficult to use.

Every element of your outdoor space should cohesively work together for your overall design goals. This is one of the main reasons to partner with a company that specializes in kitchen layouts. First Coast Supply offers a one-stop-shop for countertops, cabinets, hardware and appliances.

Differentiate Your Design

Keeping up with the Jones’ doesn’t really matter. What does matter, though, is the resale value of your home. Unique but widely popular outdoor kitchen designs will deliver a significant ROI when it comes time to sell your home.

To reap the resale benefits you must first be smart about the elements. Pizza ovens, wine coolers and a built-in grill all prove to be valuable assets to potential home buyers. It’s important to select appliances that your family will love and future buyers will find desirable.
