Hi there, Ben here from Elegant Outdoor Kitchens. If you’re a first-time outdoor kitchen buyer, you might be wondering where to start the process of designing and building your dream outdoor kitchen. As a seasoned outdoor kitchen and living contractor with years of experience at Elegant Outdoor Kitchens in Fort Myers, Florida, I’m here to guide you through the process. Our unique Florida climate and lifestyle create the perfect setting for an outdoor oasis that can transform your home and enhance your outdoor living experience year-round.

Embrace the Climate

Florida’s warm climate is ideal for outdoor living, but it comes with challenges like humidity, salt air, and intense sun. Choosing weather-resistant materials is crucial. Consider stainless steel for grills and appliances and high-quality natural stone for countertops. These durable materials will withstand the elements and look great for years.

Design for Functionality

An outdoor kitchen should be as efficient and functional as your indoor kitchen. Think about your cooking and entertaining style to determine the best layout:

L-Shaped Kitchen: Perfect for corner spaces, offering ample counter space and room for multiple appliances.

U-Shaped Kitchen: Provides extensive counter space with a central area for prep and cooking.

Straight Line Kitchen: Ideal for smaller spaces, aligning all appliances and work areas in a single line. Ensure a logical flow between cooking, prep, and serving areas.

Incorporate ample storage and counter space, and consider adding an island or bar area for social interactions. Check out our Elegant Outdoor Kitchens Design Guide for more information regarding what to expect.
